A social media campaign in favour of her induction has launched the hashtag #JoJoForHOF, which has been shared and retweeted nearly a dozen times.
“I think it’s time,” writes veteran wrestling journalist Dan Mutzler. “From her Total Divas debut in 2013 to her ring announcing on Superstars, JoJo has proven that she deserves to be enshrined alongside the elites of the sport, like Ric Flair, Buddy Rogers, Andre the Giant, and Donald Trump.”
Others are skeptical, insisting that JoJo has not made a lasting impression on sports-entertainment as profoundly as, say, Pete Rose and Drew Carey have.
Among the other legends reportedly being considered for induction in 2017:
- Diamond Dallas Page
- The Midnight Express
- The British Bulldogs
- James Ellsworth
- Frankie the Parrot
Fuelling the rumors that JoJo will be a 2017 inductee are leaked WWE documents that reveal she is the front-running candidate for a WrestleMania match against The Undertaker.
