2013 Rif Rasslin Hall of Fame

Rif Rasslin Hall of Fame

Hello and welcome to the first annual Hall of Fame induction. The following inductees have been voted in by you the fans but 4 of which have been personally selected by each staff member here at Rif Rasslin. Overall there are 18 inductees, I don’t think we’ll be inducting 18 members each year, maybe 10 but since it’s a special occasion we’ve gone with 18. We don’t want to overload the class with big names from the off. We want to space them out over the years in order to make each class special. Looking at the 18 names we’re very happy who with we’ve gone for and we’re looking forward to the future of the Rif Rasslin Hall of Fame. So, without further ado, please welcome the class of 2013. (All Championships correct at time of writing 29/12/2013)
