Just as there are several deserving people who deserve to be in the WWE Hall of Fame, the flip side is that there are a lot of people in the Hall of Fame that don't necessarily seem like they should be there.

Whether it's lack of titles won during a career or the fact that the character was just never that over in WWE, some of the people in the Hall of Fame like Koko B. Ware and Hillbilly Jim don't exactly seem like they had HOF-worthy careers.

Someone like Owen Hart or Christian or Vader who isn't in the HOF? Yeah, they seem more worthy than the aforementioned superstars.

One of the main problems is the need to have a class of excess of seven or eight inductees each year. As the time goes by, those who should be in the HOF dwindle year by year while some get in on token nominations to fill spots.

Even two of the inductees of 2019 - Torrie Wilson and Brutus 'the Barber' Beefcake - don't exactly scream out that they had careers that deem them as HOF members.

But since we are not the ones who make those decisions, there are likely to be some who us fans don't feel should be in the HOF and some that we are adamant should be or should have been inducted.

Here are 10 people who are in the WWE Hall of Fame that shouldn't necessarily be there for various reasons.

#10 Koko B. Ware

While some people say that he was more successful before joining WWF for eight years, the fact is some success is translatable and is worthy of induction into the WWE Hall of Fame.

Someone who was a top star in a promotion like WCW or AWA before joining the WWE is certainly worthy of a HOF spot, but mid-carders, not so much.

Koko B. Ware was an exciting wrestler for his time but he was mostly used as a jobber to wrestlers higher up the food chain.

He didn't win any titles during his time in WWF and while that isn't the be all end all when determining someone's HOF worthiness, he wasn't exactly known as a technical maven.

Had booking been different for him during his run maybe things would have been better, but his career didn't seem like that of someone who should be in the HOF.
