From the NAI Archive – March 27, 2015 – Hall of Friday – Predicting the 2016 Class

We are less than 36 hours from the 2015 Hall of Fame ceremonies, which means it is the PERFECT time to start gazing into our orbs of crystal and making predictions for the 2016 Hall of Fame class. Who will make the cut next year? Will it shape up better than this class has seemed to? Sure, so long as I have something to say about it. . .

(I don’t have anything to say about it.)

Still, I’ll give you the talents I’d put in next year’s group. Here’s what I’ll include

A major headlining talent
A “minor” headlining talent (the Kevin Nash to Randy Savage, for example)
A tag team
A female talent
An “older” talent (think Larry Zbyszko)
A celebrity
A foreign talent and/or a “minority” talent (sad, but true – This is why Rikishi is getting in, after all)

I will not be including the “Warrior” Hall of Famer, since I’m not sure if this will be an annual thing or only when it is warranted. Hoping for the latter, honestly.

On we go!

As if thousands of voices cried out in total confusion. If you listen now, you might hear the echoes. . .

The era of the big man is over in WWE.

Well, that’s not entirely true. It’s almost over.

Want proof? Using my free time wisely, I’ve compiled a list of wrestler stats.

Once Big Show, Mark Henry and Kane retire (which, I expect, will be by the end of 2015), can you name the 3 wrestlers who weigh over 300 pounds? WWE and NXT together, there’s only 3…
