Sharing my thoughts, opinion, and historical facts on everything WWE both past and present

Now with Teddy Long joining both Kurt Angle and the Rock and Roll Express going into the Hall of Fame this year we have seen another deserving name knocked off the board. But now I will beat the WWE to the punch as in recent years they have been inducting some International superstars like Inoki, Hansen, Abdulah, and Tatsumi Fujinami. The reason for me including both Hansen and Butcher here is because they had more Hall of Fame worthy careers in Japan then in the US and deserve to be honored.
One name that actually recently has been taking some more dates in the US and has actually spent a little time with WWE. That name is the legend himself Jushin "Thunder" Liger; now I know people will say that their are more deserving names, but if Butcher gets in based off Japan then Liger should to. Also what they could do is induct him and then have him feud with someone from the cruiserwieght division to add a little bit to the division.
I know that inducting International stars is a touchy subject with some fans who think that people should only be inducted based on WWE impact and not overall. However, if the WWE wants to be a have an international presence I think it's necessary that they honor those who also had an impact on the wrestling business on an international level and that is why I do believe that Jushin "Thunder" Liger belongs in the WWE Hall of Fame.
