When will Davey Boy Smith be recognized for his past accomplishments and immortalized in the WWE Hall of Fame?
When will Davey Boy Smith be recognized for his past accomplishments and immortalized in the WWE Hall of Fame?

The WWE Hall of Fame is filled with a number of former champions from not just WWE, but promotions from all over the world. Since its inception, there have been several wrestlers inducted that fans thought would have nothing to do with WWE ever again.

However, whether it was Bruno Sammartino, Bret Hart or The Ultimate Warrior, it became important for all parties to let bygones be bygones and see the bigger picture, and let these incredible talents careers be immortalized.

One criticism that has been levied at the Hall of Fame has been the failure to induct some former men and women that blazed a trail outside WWE. The contributions of various founders and builders are crucial to acknowledge, and the careers of those people should be assigned great value.

Who should be inducted into the Hall of Fame, and who will WWE eventually welcome into their halls? Here are five unexpected Hall of Famers we may see in the future.


#5 Davey Boy Smith

Smith earned a name for himself initially as one half of The British Bulldogs.

As a former tag team, Intercontinental, European and Hardcore champion, Davey Boy Smith is most deserving of becoming a member of the Hall of Fame. He first joined the WWE alongside his cousin Tommy Billington as one-half of The British Bulldogs.

After his first departure from the company and subsequent return, Smith captured several championships, meaning that his absence from the Hall of Fame is a surprise.

His omission, when family members like Bret Hart are in there, has not gone unnoticed. A petition started a few years ago and is still in circulation, demanding Smith's induction into the Hall of Fame. With each passing day, the number of names that have signed it continues to grow.

Smith's legacy lives on today in his son, Harry Smith, who competes in Japan.
