WWE Claim to Fame: Which Superstars are Worthy of Hall of Fame Inductions? | Smark Out Moment
Welcome to CLAIM TO FAME — a list of the current superstars on the WWE roster framed in the context of whether or not they would be worthy of entering the Hall of Fame if they were to retire today and not be able to add anything more to their legacy.

This is not a ranking of their spot on the card, nor my personal preferences of whether or not I like the performer. Rather, it's my best attempt at guessing each wrestler's value in relation to being inducted and immortalized as "one of the greats" in WWE history.

Do they have a claim to fame, or are they still working on achieving enough to qualify?



This list was last updated on 6/18/2020.
NXT and NXT UK stars might be added in the future.

A+. Just Sign the Dotted Line

Explanation: These wrestlers are guaranteed first-ballot Hall of Famers to come. They are already spoken of as being legendary and it's just a matter of time before they are headlining a class.

AJ Styles
Big Show
Brock Lesnar
Charlotte Flair
Daniel Bryan
The Hardy Boyz
John Cena
Kane
Linda McMahon
The Miz
Natalya
The New Day (Big E, Kofi Kingston, Xavier Woods)
Randy Orton
Rey Mysterio
Roman Reigns
Paul Heyman
Seth Rollins
Shane McMahon
Sheamus
Stephanie McMahon
The Undertaker
Vince McMahon

A. Definitely

Explanation: These wrestlers will assuredly get a spot in the Hall of Fame. They may not be the headlining main event of that class, but something crazy would have to happen to deny them their future induction.

Alexa Bliss
Asuka
Bayley
Becky Lynch
Bray Wyatt
Dolph Ziggler
Mickie James
Naomi
R-Truth
Sasha Banks
The Usos

B. Most Likely

Explanation: These wrestlers will probably get in, but it's not a sure thing. They may have to wait a while or be inducted as part of a group in order to secure a spot. It will likely happen, but it's not going to be a certainty and WWE will be in no rush to put them in there.

Baron Corbin
Bobby Lashley
Braun Strowman
The Brian Kendrick
Carmella
Cesaro
Drew McIntyre 
Kevin Owens
John Morrison
Maryse
Shelton Benjamin

C. 50/50 Shot

Explanation: This is a toss-up. Maybe they will, maybe they won't. Enough oddball inductees have happened and there are plenty of people who still aren't in the Hall of Fame, so you never know.

Bo Dallas
Jinder Mahal
Lana
Samoa Joe
Titus O'Neil (hasn't accomplished much, but they seem to love him and he's big on charity)

D. Probably Not

Explanation: Sadly, these wrestlers haven't done enough to put them in much of a running to be inducted. Whether they didn't accomplish much, weren't all that popular or other negatives, it's very unlikely they will get inducted unless something drastic changes.

Cedric Alexander
Dana Brooke
Kalisto
Shinsuke Nakamura
Shorty G

F. Definitely Not

Explanation: Superstars in this category stand no chance at getting inducted. They've either caused problems or been completely inconsequential for a long enough time that they aren't likely to build up any considerable merit to be considered Hall of Fame material.

Ariya Daivari
Gran Metalik
Lars Sullivan
Lince Dorado
Mojo Rawley
Tamina

???. Unknown / Null

Explanation: These wrestlers are ones I can't quite judge yet in any fair way. They might be far too new to have anything to assess, positive or negative, or they just haven't been given a proper chance to fail or succeed and have potential to go both ways depending on how the wind blows.

AOP
Akira Tozawa
Aleister Black
Andrade
Apollo Crews
Buddy Murphy
Drake Maverick
Drew Gulak
Elias
Ember Moon
Gentleman Jack Gallagher
Heavy Machinery
Humberto Carrillo
The IIconics
Kairi Sane
Lacey Evans
Liv Morgan
Mandy Rose
Mustafa Ali
Nia Jax
Nikki Cross
Ricochet
Robert Roode
Ruby Riott
Sami Zayn
Sonya Deville
The Street Profits
Tony Nese
The Viking Raiders
Zelina Vega
