I guess see a HOF needing higher standards... with the sport being so young it should be very empty at this point... Some guys may be put in there because there are so few members...
Mark was not the first wrestler, although he pave the way for wrestlers to come as you said.
Just didnt buy into the idea that he revolutionized and changed the GNP game in MMA, as some would say...
not knocking the guy by any means.
