The ground rules for a list such as this are likely to stir as much debate as the rundown itself, but it's telling that the most ludicrous collection of legends could trigger such a spirited discussion.
Most discerning wrestling fans spend 11 months of the year noting how riddled and diddled Vince McMahon's Hall Of Fame is before donating 30 days to screaming their voices hoarse for a favourite that may not yet have made the cut.

It's advanced from hotel function rooms to arenas pre-staged for Raw and SmackDown with ticket-buying attendees more likely to heckle the inductees rather than wear suits to honor their heroes. At least they stay in their seats - the wrestlers forced into showing up take so many toilet breaks now that most speeches require a tight shot to avoid capturing swathes of empty seats in the first 50 rows.
