‘The Crippler’ Is The Latest Inductee Into The WWE Hall Of Fame. No, Not That One.

So far, the WWE Hall of Fame represents two sides of the pro wrestling spectrum: Macho Man Randy Savage, one of the most beloved and decorated performers in the history of the industry, and Arnold Schwarzenegger, an actor who got a replica title for being on Smackdown once. According to reports from PWInsider, the next inductee appears to be a lock and is a little more Macho than Arnold: ‘The Crippler’ Ray Stevens.

No, not that Crippler. No, not THAT Ray Stevens.

If you aren’t familiar with his work, The Crippler had a 42-year career in the business. He held the then-WWWF United States Championship in 1967, is a 2-time NWA United States Heavyweight Champion and held tag team championships around the world, including 3 NWA Tag Team Champion runs and 4 in the AWA. He’s one of those guys who’ll never get a spotlight DVD highlighting his importance to wrestling as pop culture, but his work is deeply respected and his influence is undeniable.

Here are a few clips to get you acquainted. (Try not to fall in love with Nick Bockwinkel, by the way.)
