What does it take to get into the Counting the Lights Hall of Fame?
A lot of things.
Sometimes, it’s how awesome you were in the ring. Actually, it’s never that.
Sometimes, it’s the hilariously insane things that you say. Most of the time, it’s that.
Other times, well, as Ryan says, “It’s Noah’s Hall of Fame anyway.”
Here are the folks who have made it.
2011 CTL HOF INAUGURAL CLASS
BILLY JACK HAYES
Billy Jack is not in for his ability in the ring. He’s in for being batshit crazy. This is the man that thinks that Vincent “Killer” McMahon impregnated Nancy Benoit, causing Chris to kill her. He’s also the guy that named Vince “Killer.” Also: HE SAID PENIS. A first ballot no contest Hall of Famer.
We all say at least one Gorilla thing a day. “Occipital protuberance.” “He wouldn’t know a wrist lock from a wrist watch.” “SRO signs went out early.” “Terry Garvin School of Self Defense.” There was never anyone better.
If all Jimmy Snuka did was jump off the top rope and kill rats (allegedly), he’d be in. Add in his crazy as fuck promos about THE TRUTH BRUTHA and he’s a first ballot bona fide HOF member.
2012 SECOND HALL OF FAME CLASS
DOOM: Voted on by you, the fans. They’re in there.
CHRIS BENOIT: Because, well, we’re assholes.
DAVID CROCKETT: Look at him, Tony.
LEE MARSHALL: Noah’s Lex Luthor.
VIRGIL: Hey there, Jim.
VADER: The man!
GARY WOLFE: Still alive.
