So during the announcement of the nWo for the hall of fame, they mentioned Waltman as a founding member, he wasn't so you think he is going in due to his friendship with Hall and Nash. here's what wiki entry says-(joined on September 16, 1996, injured on the October 13, 1997 edition of Nitro, fired from WCW in March 1998)

So we have 2 options. He is either getting in due to inside connections, or because of his one year tenure in the sport. I have never heard of ANYone getting into a hall of fame after playing the sport for only 1 year.

Yea but that year isn't the only year in X-Pac/Syxx/Sean Waltman's experience. Plus WWE isn't the same as other sports, so we can't necessarily use the same criteria for hall of fame inductions.

I do think this is just their way of making sure their buddy gets into the hall of fame, because I doubt that Sean Waltman's career on his own would do enough to get him in as a singles competitor. But he was a part of the 2 biggest factions in the attitude era, and that surrounded him by very high level main eventers. It's fine, throw him in there, give him his ring.

Now there's gonna be 6 2-Time HOF entries that I'm aware of: Ric Flair, Shawn Michaels, and soon to be Scott Hall, Kevin Nash, X-Pac, and Hulk Hogan.

The funny thing is that Waltman is not keen on being inducted into the HoF as a singles star. How would you perceive his desire to be a part of something 'bigger'?

I'd imagine it's because he knows his singles career isn't really HoF worthy.

I wonder if he's conflicted about this, I know I would be. On one hand I know he wants the ring, but does he believe he's on the same level as other HOF'ers? I'm not saying he's not, I just wonder what HE thinks about it all?

From a recent interview, Sean Waltman said this

"I have no desire whatsoever to stand up on that stage by myself and be inducted as a [single's wrestler]. To be a part of something bigger and greater than yourself is just an amazing feeling to me, and I don't need that. I don't need 'me, me, me', what about me? I got plenty of me," admitted Waltman. "I'm just happy to be a part of something greater than me."
