They have the people. There are all kinds of championships and accomplishments that a wrestler can win, but unlike most other sports, those titles can be lost. A wrestler will be able to be known as a former champion, but there is something special about not having the ‘former” part attached. There are not many honors that last forever, but now one promotion is trying to do something about that.
Ring of Honor has announced the creation of its own Hall of Fame, with the first inductee being announced next week. After that, there ill be a new inductee announced every Tuesday in February. There is no word on when the first induction ceremony will take place. Ring of Honor debuted in February 2002 and will be marking its 20th anniversary, though the company is currently on hiatus and expecting to return in April.
Opinion: The first thing that came to my head was “how does Ring of Honor NOT have a Hall of Fame yet?” What makes Ring of Honor that much more interesting is how many different eras the company has had over the years. There are all kinds of wrestlers who could be inducted and several of them have earned the honor. I’m curious to see who is inducted, as Ring of Honor seems like the kind of place that could make this a special moment.
Who do you see being inducted in the first class? Who will be inducted first? Let us know in the comments below.
