SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: YOU VOTE on the 2016 LOP Hall of Fame Induction Class
By The Doc
Feb 28, 2016 - 11:20:28 PM

Ladies and gentlemen,

For the fourth consecutive year, we at Lordsofpain.net are continuing our annual tradition of inducting a new class into the LOP Hall of Fame

The LOP Hall of Fame consists of professional wrestlers and professional wrestling matches that you, the readers of LOP, nominate and vote on. From March 28th until April 2nd, special “induction” columns dedicated to each inductee will be posted as part of our “LOP Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony,” a week-long celebration of wrestling’s past.

We would like you to nominate Two singles wrestlers, one Tag Team or Faction, a Manager or Other Personality, a Female wrestler or manager or personality, and Two Wrestling Matches.

The Nomination period will begin Monday, February 22 and last one week, through Sunday, February 28.

At that time, nominations will be compiled and an official “Hall of Fame” ballot will be put together for readers to vote.

Eligibility Requirements

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.

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. 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 even though Christian is not eligible for singles induction, E&C has been defunct for over a decade.

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 Manager or Personality
5) A Female Wrestler

1) A Match of Your Choosing
2) A Match of Your Choosing

Thank you and we look forward to your participation in continuing to make this a great yearly tradition.

On behalf of Lordsofpain.net,

-The Doc
