WWE Legacy Award? More inductions this year?

Wrestlezone has reported that WWE is selling a Hall of Fame T-shirt which includes an award which has not been announced as of yet, called the WWE Legacy Award.  See photo below.


Included on this as recipients of the legacy award include Lou Thesz, Mildred Burke, Pat O’Connor, Frank Gotch, Art Thomas & George Hackenschmidt,. For those hardcore fans, these men and women are  known as the backbones of professional wrestling. Many are world champions dating all the way  back to the  beginning of wrestling in  North America.

While WWE has yet to announce anything about this award, it is unclear if that will induct these pioneers as full fledged members (done in quick order to skip the whole award portion for men and women long dead, but still recognize them) or be another bullshit award ala the Warrior Award.

What do you think? Things might still  be occurring for the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2016 (and I might need to do 7 more induction articles!)

  1. By the looks of it this is a award not a HOF induction hence the word “award”.
    I imagine this is a nod to some pioneers of pro wrestling that pre dated the TV era.
    Some of this list crossed over into both era’s but obviously are not considered for induction into the HOF because this list consists of wrestlers that was around well before pro wrestling was a show.
    I personally think Lou Thesz could have been eligible for a HOF induction as he was the NWA Sammartino and was around during the early territories days.
    But hey I’m guessing this list is too pre dated for the WWE HOF.
