The WWE Hall of Fame has become an annual celebration of the history of the business and its performers. Every year, the company honors various legends, including some of the very best female competitors who stepped foot in the squared circle.

Whether it be Trish Stratus in 2013 or Lita in 2014, the promotion has been somewhat selective when it comes to women being inducted into the Hall of Fame. Other superstars like Molly Holly and Miss Jacqueline have also joined the prestigious classes, but quite a few notable names are yet to receive the honor.

With the company about to start naming the 2022 inductees soon, it seems like an ideal time to remember some female superstars who could be in the running to be chosen to join this year's class. In this article, let's look at five women who could be added to the 2022 Hall of Fame class.

5) Former WWE Superstar Terri Runnels

Happy Birthday Terri Runnels! 🎉

Not every woman added to the Hall of Fame has to have performed inside the ring and have a litany of good matches in their catalog. The business allows individuals to add to the on-screen product in different ways. Terri Runnels is a former superstar who was able to be a memorable character without being an in-ring worker.

Despite having some experience in the squared circle, Runnels is best remembered for her managerial roles. She was introduced to World Wrestling Entertainment as Marlena and managed Goldust. The duo was a consistent highlight for the company from 1996-97.

Terri Runnels has found herself in the corner of many competitors over the years. Her relationship with Perry Saturn gave the superstar the most development of his entire run with the promotion. This also led to the creation of Moppy as well.

Terri was also responsible for the Hardy Boyz vs. Edge and Christian best-of-seven series. This led to the groundbreaking No Mercy 1999 Tag Team Ladder Match that put all four men on the map. Her contributions as a manager and character are worthy of being inducted into the Hall of Fame.

4) Former WWE Women's Champion Sable

Do you think we’ll ever see Sable on #WWE TV again?

Sable was one of the faces of WWE's Attitude Era. The superstar used her sex appeal and compelling storyline with Marc Mero to become wildly popular. During this period, she often got a louder reaction than superstars like Stone Cold Steve Austin, D-Generation X, and The Rock.

Sable was a needle mover and a certified draw for the promotion. Her popularity led the company to bring back the Women's Championship. Although Sable lost to Miss Jacqueline in the tournament's finals, she defeated Jackie for the gold to win the title.

With her accolades and success during this historical period, Sable is a suitable Hall of Fame candidate.

3) Former four-time WWE Women's Champion Michelle McCool

Michelle McCool will be one of the returning entrants in the 2022 Women's Royal Rumble Match. In the first edition, she made a statement after eliminating five women from the bout.

McCool was one of the top stars in the women's division during the Ruthless Aggression era. She won the Women's Championship and Divas Championship twice. Her act with Layla as Laycool was one of the consistent highlights of the women's division during the early 2010s. Her resume speaks for itself and screams Hall of Famer.

2) Former five-time WWE Women's Champion Melina

Melina has victories at all of WWE’s major 4 PPVs, when will your faves😌🐐

Melina will also be returning to WWE in this year's Women's Royal Rumble Match. It will mark the first time since 2011 that Melina has competed inside a squared circle for the promotion.

She is one of the most decorated female WWE superstars in recent memory. She won the Women's Championship thrice. Melina also claimed the Divas Title twice.

She has worked with legends like Trish Stratus, Mickie James, and Michelle McCool. When you add in her managerial role with MNM and John Morrison, it is weird that Melina hasn't already been inducted yet.

1) Former two-time WWE Women's Champion Victoria

Victoria is often considered one of the most underrated stars to grace the squared circle. She did whatever was necessary to earn opportunities.

She won the Women's Championship twice and worked with some of the biggest female superstars along the way. Her memorable rivalry with Trish Stratus is one of the most fondly remembered feuds of the early 2000s.

Victoria held a grudge against Stratus due to their time as fitness models and looked for revenge. She accomplished her worth in a hardcore match to win the Women's Title.

Victoria won gold again when she defeated Lita, Molly Holly, and Jazz in a Fatal Four-Way Match. She also successfully defended the title against Molly Holly in a hair vs. title match at WrestleMania XX, which led to Molly having her head shaved.

She captured different characters and got them over. Whether it be the deranged stalker who haunted Trish or the determined babyface that fought against Molly, this legend always found a way to make it work and help other competitors in their development. That's why Victoria is the best woman to be added to the 2022 WWE Hall of Fame.
