The WWE Hall of Fame is seemingly feeling comfortable by putting in the WWE Divas from the past in the WWE Hall of Fame the night before Wrestlemania. It started with Sherri Martel back in 2006, then it went to Wendi Richter in 2010, Sunny in 2011, Trish Stratus in 2013 and recently, Lita this year for the hall of fame. Talks for the Hall of Fame for next year have already begun and there were two names that were brought up for the Diva selection for next year’s hall of fame.
I’m not sure you guys remember, but early in the year, I did an article for here titled “5 things I want to see in 2014 for the Divas and Knockouts” and one of the selections were which Diva from the past deserves to be in the Hall of Fame. I put down Lita (which came correctly) as well as putting the likes down of Chyna, Sable, Miss Elizabeth and other divas prior towards Lita to go in the Hall of Fame. Down below is a list and reasons on why I think these women should be in the Hall Of Fame before Mickie James and Victoria. I’m sure that most of you guys would agree with some of the selections I give out.
Miss Elizabeth: She is on the top of my list for a reason. Miss Elizabeth should be inducted into the Hall of Fame. I know this may cause a stir, but I truly believe that she should’ve went in before Sherri. Miss Elizabeth was well-known for being the “first diva” in WWE and being the manger and wife, on and off-screen of Randy “The Macho Man” Savage. However, with reports going around that they are considering of putting Macho Man in the class of 2015, I really hope that they really take the time and put Miss Elizabeth in the Hall of Fame with him so that the both of them can go in finally….together.
Another one is Jacqueline. Jacqueline is a female wrestler I consider to be someone who is very underrated and someone I feel deserves to have a lot of credit regarding her ring work. Jacqueline is the first ever African-American Women’s Champion, a title that she held twice in her career. She is the first ever female to receive a referee’s license and referee matches Jacqueline paved a way for most of our divas today, especially the ones that are African-American like Naomi, Sasha Banks and Cameron.
Sable is another diva that should be in the hall of fame. She was a part of the reboot of the Women’s Division. She held the Women’s Championship twice in her career. Even though her history with WWE maybe negative regarding the sexual harassment case back in 1999 (She returned in 2003 and it seemed to bury the hatchet, though Stephanie did bring it up in a backstage segment during the summer when she was feuding with Sable). Not really one of the best wrestlers out there, but she was over with the male portion of the crowd. Despite that, she did pave the way for the Divas that we have today and she set an example that there is no problem showing off what you got and there is not a problem being sexy on top of that.
The last one is the obvious and that is Chyna. Even though that Chyna has done some controversial things in the past and if she was even considered to be in the Hall of Fame, she would likely go in with DX, but you need to look at her accomplishments outside of DX. She was the first ever women to be a part of the Royal Rumble and enter in at number 30. She would take part in the King of the Ring tournament back in 2000, she is a three-time Intercontinental Champion and the first and only women to hold a male championship as well as being a former Women’s Champion as well. Sadly, I don’t see Chyna going in on her own because of the stuff that happened with her, Triple H and Stephanie. I feel like they really need to let it go as I am quoting the Frozen song in this post and let bygones be bygones and move on.
I could list more divas such as Alundra Blayze, Bull Nakano, Jazz, Molly Holly, Ivory and many others before Mickie James and Victoria that should be in the Hall of Fame, but knowing the WWE, they have their favorites, sadly and we possibly won’t see the girls I’ve listed ever in the Hall of Fame. I really don’t have a problem with Mickie James or Victoria, but I feel like they need to wait before putting them in. We all know that Mickie James is a five time Women’s Champion and a one-time Divas Champion as well as becoming one of the most popular Divas in WWE. Victoria is a two-time Women’s Champion, wrestled in the first ever Divas Steel Cage match with Lita, but I have no clue why WWE would put Victoria in the Hall of Fame when she basically bashed them when she was in TNA during ODB’s angle and she was beat up for being a “diva” according to ODB. That’s what making me raise my eyebrow.
