Celebrities Who Should Be In The WWE Hall Of Fame
By TREVOR DAME
Lawrence Taylor
After retiring, NFL legend Lawrence Taylor headed off to WWF in 1995 to try something new. In his only pro-wrestling match, Taylor was the first non-wrestler to close WrestleMania in a singles match, proving that he could carry himself inside the ring.
Kevin Greene
Another legendary football player, Kevin Greene wrestled five times for WCW from 1996 to 1998 during the NFL offseason. All but one of those matches were reserved for PPV as he faced Ric Flair, Arn Anderson, and the nWo, and he is also credited with encouraging former NFL player Bill Goldberg to become a wrestler.
Stephen Amell
Star of the CW superhero drama "Arrow," Steven Amell stepped inside the WWE ring with Neville to wrestle Stardust and King Barrett at SummerSlam in 2015. He also worked a match for ROH, teaming with the Elite, and worked with Christopher Daniels at the show that helped plant the seed of AEW, All In.
Dennis Rodman
Dennis Rodman not only wrestled a few times for WCW in the late-’90s but also became an official member of the nWo. Although not very impressive inside the ring, Rodman was great at drawing money for WCW. He largely stepped away from wrestling after his time at the company, except for a couple of big-time matches.
Art Donovan
Football Hall of Fame member, Art Donovan played the role of a befuddled-but-curious ring announcer with zero knowledge about pro-wrestling at the King of the Ring 1994 PPV. Donovan asked every wrestler about their weight, and by the end of the night, his boothmates were tuning his unforgettable performance out.
