I am pleased to announce a new yearly event that we hope to be a special happening for the readers of Lordsofpain.net. During the first week of April, we will be unveiling the inaugural induction class into the LOP Hall of Fame
The LOP Hall of Fame will consist of professional wrestlers and professional wrestling matches that you, the readers of LOP, will nominate and vote on. From April 1st until April 7th, special “induction” columns dedicated to each inductee will be posted as part of our “LOP Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony,” a weeklong celebration of wrestling’s past.
We would like you to nominate Two singles wrestlers, one Tag Team or Faction, a Female Wrestler, a Manager or Other Personality, and Two Wrestling Matches.
The Nomination period will begin Sunday, February 17 and last one week, through Sunday, February 24.
At that time, nominations will be compiled and an official “Hall of Fame” ballot will be put together for readers to vote.
1) A singles nominee must be at least 3 years removed from his final singles match. Note that we will round up for someone who is on the cusp of the 3 year cutoff, so Shawn Michaels is eligible, for those wondering.
2) The above cut off applies only to a major promotion. For the purposes of this Hall of Fame, TNA/Impact Wrestling will NOT be considered at this time, so Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan, and Sting are eligible, for those wondering. Suggested promotions to choose from include WWE, WCW- NWA (all major regions), AWA, and ECW (for its influence and popularity). You may also nominate someone from an international promotion such as New Japan or AAA.
3) Matches nominated must be from at least 5 years ago to allow for thorough and proper historical perspective to be gained and the test of time to be passed. **Note that these matches can include active superstars**
4) Wrestlers in factions or tag teams will be considered separate from their singles nominations, so if you want to nominate Edge and Christian, for instance, then go right ahead, as their tag team ended over ten years ago despite Edge retiring from singles just 2 years ago.
We would like you to nominate, preferably below in the comments section, in the following format:
1) A Wrestler of Your Choosing
2) A Wrestler of Your Choosing
3) A Tag Team or Faction
4) A Female Wrestler
5) A Manager or Personality
1) A Match of Your Choosing
2) A Match of Your Choosing
Thank you and we look forward to your participation in making this a great, new yearly tradition.
On behalf of Lordsofpain.net,
(Note - If there are any questions, feel free to leave it in the comments. I will check periodically)
