Why Christian Needs To Be Inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2020

Sarah Grieve looks at why she thinks 2020 is the year in which Christian should join his friend and long time tag partner Edge in the Hall of Fame.

WWE’s Hall of Fame is one of the most prestigious honours that can be bestowed upon a wrestler. Not too many people have the opportunity to be given the honour, but those who have are now part of wrestling history.

Each year there are some obvious names, but many names are unexpected. The number of legends who are not yet part of WWE’s Hall of Fame go down. Looking back at the last few decades of WWE, there are several wrestlers whose time has come to walk into the welcoming Golden Gates of the prestigious organisation.

Last year we saw the induction of D-X, Harlem Heat and Torrie Wilson. This year’s Hall of Fame ceremony is sure to be just as memorable, with several stars who should be inducted.

As 2020 quickly approaches and the road to WrestleMania 36 is set in motion, so too are the latest inductees.

On December 9th it was announced that The nWo would be inducted into the Hall of Fame as a stable (they’ve all been inducted individually). Later that same day, they were joined by Batista as the first name entering the Hall of Fame.

In the days since, fans have begun speculating who will join them. One name I believe has been over-looked for years now is Christian. He has been overlooked throughout his career, even though his accolades speaks for themselves.

  • 2 x ECW Champion
  • 2 x World Heavyweight Champion
  • Former WWF European, Hardcore and Light Heayweight Champion
  • 4 x WWF/E Intercontinental Champion
  • 9 x WWF/E World Tag Team Champion
  • Triple Crown Winner
  • Grand Slam Champion
  • Took part in first-ever Tables, Ladders & Chairs match

Mainstay career

Whether it be pioneering tag team and TLC matches along with his partner, Edge, or winning the World Heavyweight Championship for the first time late into his career, Christian has done it all.

His best friend and partner Edge is already a part of the Hall of Fame following his retirement yet Christian still waits despite hanging up his boots a few years back.

Captain Charisma spent a large part of his career in the shadow of his contemporaries. Even in his retirement, he has not been recognised for the wrestling great that he was.

With this historic back-catalogue and his further success away from the ring in podcasting and other ventures, it is hard to fathom why he is consistently overlooked by WWE for a chance in the Hall of Fame.

WWE is often criticised for who they select, especially when wrestlers have fallen out with the powers in the company. However, the same can’t be said for Captain Charisma, as he seems to still have a good relationship with the wrestling giants.

As far as he goes, there is no question that he deserves to be a part of this year’s Hall of Fame, but the only question that remains is will he finally be inducted?
