    A solid class, all deserving to be in the HOF.

    If William Regal makes it in then finally an UK wrestler gets a long overdue the Hall of Fame nod though Bulldog and “Exotic” Adrian Street (Adrian resides in Gulf Breeze, Florida) belong in the WWE Hall of Fame too.

    Adrian pushed the sexual boundaries like no other had before. His character wasn’t just flamboyant, as he played the part of a tough transvestite bedecked with glitter, pigtails and the most garish makeup this side of Gene Simmons. He created a persona designed to make fans uncomfortable and likely executed better than anyone else ever could have. Adrian never did make the WWE, but his influences were all over the place. He paved the way for the Goldust character, and Rico Constantino’s last persona there was a direct homage to Adrian. If the Hall ever goes strictly by innovation, “Exotic” Adrian Street is an excellent choice.

    @Mumbai Agreed. Long before Goldust was sending flowers to Razor Ramon, Adrian Street was kissing wrestlers as they were being pinned. There are many who feel that Adrian Street doesn’t get the credit he’s earned.

    Love to watch him suck that gut in nowadays during every one of his photo ops. But yeah, I think he would be a good choice too, he was entertaining back in the day.
