The WWE Hall of Fame is a prestigious wing and a respected accomplishment. To be inducted signifies that a Superstar has led a successful career that will forever be immortalized in the history books. Big names such as Hulk Hogan, Andre the Giant and Roddy Piper all boast a place in the Hall of Fame.
Currently, WWE has a roster stacked with talented wrestlers, all eager to prove themselves and grab the brass ring. Only the best will be inducted, however, whilst the Superstars who have failed to make an impact will forever be denied that achievement. Who's likely to make it, and who isn't? Let's take a look!
10 Hall Of Famer: Seth Rollins
Seth Rollins is currently Universal Champion and at the top of his game. After making his triumphant return from injury, the Architect inserted himself back into the main event scene and proved to fans, with a series of stellar matches, why he deserves to be there.
Not only is the Beastslayer a Grand Slam Champion, but he also debuted as part of The Shield, one of WWE's most successful factions. With an arsenal of accomplishments under his belt, it is near guaranteed that Rollins will be inducted into the Hall of Fame after he retires.
9 Never Inducted: Rusev
Rusev seemed like he was going to be a break-out star after his initial debut during the 2014 Royal Rumble match. Paired with Lana, a valuable managerial presence capable of carrying them both on the mic, the Bulgarian Brute went on an undefeated streak, tearing through the locker room.
Despite initially being a villain, Rusev won the crowd with his Rusev Day gimmick and became a fan favorite. This was all without the company's backing, however, and the former NXT Superstar hasn't left the mid-card in a while. He is currently on indefinite hiatus and his future with WWE remains unclear.
8 Hall Of Famer: Charlotte Flair
Charlotte Flair has won every available championship on the roster, including the NXT Women's Championship, the Divas Championship, and both brands' titular title belt. She was one of the first women to main event a PPV and main-evented WrestleMania 35, an accomplishment that once seemed a long shot.
The Queen, a 9-time Women's Champion, has already led a career worthy of the Hall of Fame. Time will only tell what other heights Flair will soar to that will only add to her impressive resume.
7 Never Inducted: Cesaro
Cesaro has done his best to win fans over and it has worked. The only shame is that this charm hasn't extended to management, who clearly has never seen him as a legitimate main event Superstar.
Despite being an incredible athlete with a unique moveset, Cesaro has never been given his chance to shine in the spotlight, saddled with the mid-card and his current tag-team with Sheamus. WWE has never given him the opportunity to have a Hall of Fame-worthy career, a shame for such a talented worker.
6 Hall Of Famer: Daniel Bryan
Another Grand Slam Champion, Daniel Bryan hijacked WWE and led a movement that forced the company to put him in the main event of WrestleMania XXX. If that isn't worthy of a place in the Hall of Fame then nothing is.
Bryan has won the WWE Championship four times and the World Heavyweight Championship once. He has also enjoyed a successful run as SmackDown General Manager before returning to in-ring action.
5 Never Inducted: Naomi
WWE Creative have struggled to find a place and narrative for Naomi, despite the fact that she's a talented worker with an interesting high-flying arsenal. Although the former FCW Divas Champion has won the SmackDown Women's Championship twice, her reigns remain forgettable and not sufficient evidence for a Hall of Fame future.
Naomi's future with WWE seems unclear at the moment, given the rumors that she and husband Jimmy Uso want their release from the company.
4 Hall Of Famer: Brock Lesnar
Love him or hate him, Brock Lesnar is the Beast Incarnate. He has led a decorated career trail-blazing through the locker room, as well as a successful UFC career to back up his credibility. It is only a matter of time before Lesnar is inducted into the Hall of Fame.
The former Universal Champion is well-known for being a part-time performer, but the hype surrounding his presence is enough to carry him into the Hall of Fame, even if his list of championship wins are not.
3 Never Inducted: Finn Balor
It is an unfortunate thing to say, but Finn Balor will most likely never be inducted into the Hall of Fame. The Demon had an excellent run in developmental with the NXT Championship and helped elevate the roster to a level arguably higher than that of the main roster. This success has not been mirrored on Raw and the Irish Superstar has dwindled further and further away from the main event.
It's not too late for management to pull the trigger on Balor and cement his future induction with a championship reign, but as of now, it seems unlikely.
2 Hall Of Famer: Randy Orton
Like Brock Lesnar, Randy Orton is a WWE veteran who has had an acclaimed career with Vince McMahon's company. When he retires from in-ring action he will have a guaranteed place alongside his father Bob Orton Jr in the Hall of Fame.
Orton became the youngest world champion in 2004, after defeating Chris Benoit for the World Heavyweight Championship. He has won the WWE Championship nine times and still thrives on the main roster as part of the SmackDown brand.
1 Never Inducted: Curt Hawkins
Curt Hawkins has the unfortunate position of being WWE's resident jobber. His losing streak has become part of his gimmick, which he won't be able to shake off in time for a Hall of Fame induction.
Though Hawkins could thrive if given the opportunity, WWE Creative is unlikely to ever award him that opportunity. Instead, he remains a permanent fixture on the lower card and another wrestler to slip through the net.
