WWE Claim to Fame: Which Superstars are Worthy of Hall of Fame Inductions? | Smark Out Moment

CLAIM TO FAME is 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 purely a hypothetical. Obviously, no one is hoping any of these wrestlers would have to call it quits any time soon.

Also, this is not a ranking of my personal preferences or whether or not I like the performer. Instead, it is 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 12/13/2023—but may be archived in the future.

Major Note: This list only consists of current roster members who I feel have reached these levels. There are obviously others employed by WWE at this moment who are not listed here, such as NXT Superstars. Any time they reach a point where I feel they're worthy of being on one of the lists, they'll be added to this post.

100% Guaranteed

Explanation: These wrestlers would absolutely be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. Many of them are already legends and would be first-ballot inductees. Others have simply done enough that there is no justifiable reason why they wouldn't go in.

AJ Styles
Alexa Bliss
Asuka
Bayley
Becky Lynch
Bianca Belair
Big E
Bobby Lashley
Braun Strowman
Bray Wyatt
Brock Lesnar
Charlotte Flair
CM Punk
Cody Rhodes
Dolph Ziggler
Drew McIntyre
Finn Balor
Gunther
Kevin Owens
Kofi Kingston
MVP
Naomi
Natalya
Randy Orton
Rhea Ripley
Roman Reigns
R-Truth
Sami Zayn
Seth Rollins
Shayna Baszler
Sheamus
Shelton Benjamin
The Miz
Xavier Woods

75% Most Likely (On the Cusp)

Explanation: These wrestlers will probably eventually be inducted, and right now, they've accomplished enough that it could be justified. However, they aren't as surefire guaranteed as the others. Maybe they're just missing one more title reign or some more longevity to their careers or something. WWE would be in no rush to induct them, but down the line, they'd likely be given their rings.

Angelo Dawkins
Baron Corbin
Carlito
Carmella
Chad Gable
Damian Priest
Johnny Gargano
Maryse
Montez Ford
Nikki Cross
Ricochet
Shinsuke Nakamura
Tommaso Ciampa

50/50 Shot

Explanation: This is a toss-up. Maybe they would, but it would be anyone's guess. Enough oddball inductees have happened and there are plenty of people who still aren't in the Hall of Fame, so you never know.

Apollo Crews
Austin Theory
Butch
Dakota Kai
Ilja Dragunov
Iyo Sky
Liv Morgan
Logan Paul
Robert Roode
Sonya Deville
Tamina
Tyler Bate
Zelina Vega
