Even though all major sports have a Hall of Fame from the NHL to NBA to MLB in my opinion only one really gets a ton of coverage and that is the MLB. Every January the talk commences for who will be next on the long list of former players to punch their ticket to Cooperstown. Though the members of the writers association are very selective and some times make mistakes of who they don't pick the Baseball Hall of Fame is one of the most prestigious places in all of sports. I am not trying to compare the MLB Hall of Fame to a wrestling one, but what I am getting at is that people from all over the world visit Cooperstown, NY for one reason and one reason only. The reason for all the tourists in upstate New York is the Baseball Hall of Fame.
For years rumors have persisted that the WWE has been playing with the idea of building a physical Hall of Fame, but nothing ever comes of it. The WWE could afford a physical building especially if they can find room for it down in Florida and much like the baseball Hall of Fame it will attract tourists. The point I am trying to make is that if given the chance wrestling fans would flock to a Hall of Fame if WWE was to build one.
However, now you may ask "Well your right that fans would flock to it, but why don't fans go to the wrestling Hall of Fame that already exists?" This is good question and the answer is that most fans don't know it exists, because they don't realize it. The reason is that the WWE are in possession of a lot historic wrestling memorabilia that can only be found in the WWE warehouse. Overall this is the reason that I think that the WWE should make the strides to start building a physical Hall of Fame building and not just having it be a title like it has since the start of the Hall of Fame.
