#5 Possible candidate for Hall of Fame 2019
Pro wrestler and winner of the third edition of Tough Enough, Matt Cappotelli passed away recently after losing his battle against cancer. Cappotelli had announced in 2017 that he had been diagnosed with Glioblastoma Multiforme - an extremely aggressive form of cancer.
He was the co-winner of Tough Enough III which earned him a WWE contract. He was sent to the then developmental brand of WWE - Ohio Valley Wrestling - where he won the OVW Heavyweight Championship. However, due to issues with his failing health, he was let go from his contract in 2009.
After he passed away on June 29th, word has been going around that Cappotelli is being considered for next year's Hall of Fame class, possibly as the recipient of the Warrior Award. This will be a great move if WWE goes ahead with it, as it would raise more awareness.
