As revealed last year, TNA unveiled its first Hall of Fame with Sting being the sole inductee. This year, Kurt Angle will be the second person inducted. Is it too early for the company to actually have a Hall of Fame?
TNA only started back in 2002 and doesn’t have the long history like the WWE or any other sport for that matter. It’s only a matter of time until TNA will run out of guys to induct into its Hall of Fame. Come to think of it, both Angle and Sting are still active members of the TNA roster. Not to mention, they are still wrestling on a weekly basis too.
I’m not trying to bag on TNA, but I’m sure in a few years’ time they will run out of inductees. It’s possible next year they could induct Jeff Jarrett and then maybe A.J. Styles the year after. Apart from that, I don’t think anyone else will be appropriate for the Hall of Fame right now. It’s possible Dixie Carter herself gets inducted too.
Another problem TNA might face is the number of wrestlers that jumped ship back to WWE. Ric Flair, Mick Foley, Booker T and Christian are just some of the names that cannot be inducted unless they leave WWE and come to TNA in the near future, of course. RVD is also another name that most famously left TNA just a few weeks ago.
Overall, I feel it’s great that TNA has its own Hall of Fame, but it’s way too early to have one now. The company is way too young to induct a decent number of wrestlers into it.
