Not that I know of. And considering he came back and wrestled a match a couple months ago, it doesn't seem like there's any hostility to blame. Something has to be up though. He should have been a no-brainer a long time ago.

Don't they have some rule whereby only one deceased person per year goes in?

If I had to pick, I'd go for...

Mick Foley as the star attraction (because honestly, is there anyone else who could *realistically* go in as the main 'draw' for the event ala Austin, Edge, Hogan etc in years past?)


Slick (Jimmy Hart and Bobby Heenan are in...the Slickster was incredibly entertaining back in the day when every heel wrestler had a manager..he deserves to be in, surely:)

Bob Backlund (cos he's Bob Friggin Backlund)

Sid (I'd put Sid in before Vader simply because he accomplished more in his WWF/E career and this is a WWE event)

Demolition (no explination needed)

I *would* have said put Sable in there..Sunny is in after all and with Brock back in the company you'd have to imagine things could be worked out between his wife and WWE..*But* most of Sable's most memorable moments involved getting her tits out..how would they explain that in the ulta-pg modern WWE?

Robert F. Jeaudoin (January 8, 1948 - September 30, 2012) was an American professional wrestler, best known under the ring name of "Hangman" Bobby Jaggers.[2] Most of his renown as a wrestler came from his appearances in various National Wrestling Alliance-affiliated promotions. In particular, he found his greatest success in Championship Wrestling from Florida and Pacific Northwest Wrestling, the latter near his hometown of Vancouver, Washington. His wrestling gimmick was of a cowboy from Kansas, where he spent the later years of his life.

[edit]Early life

Born Robert F. Jeaudoin in Vancouver, Bobby Jaggers attended Hudson's Bay High School. In December 1966, he joined the United States Army and spent a year and a half in Vietnam. He was in the "A" Battery of the 1/30 Artillery 1st Calvary, and fought in battles in Hue, Khe Saah, A-Shau Valley, and the Tet offensive. Upon returning home, he worked at a NABISCO cookie factory in Washington, until he met Sandy Barr, whom he credited for saving his life. Jeaudoin suffered after Vietnam, so when Barr asked him if he wanted to be a wrestler, he immediately said yes.
[edit]Pro wrestling career

[edit]Early years (1972-1977)
Debuting under the name Bobby Mayne (after his favorite wrestler Lonnie Mayne) in 1972 in the Pacific Northwest against Al Madril, Bobby Jaggers learned his craft. Soon after debuting, he moved to Memphis, where he teamed with Charlie Fulton and was managed by Sir Steve Clements. In 1973, he moved to Kansas City, where he caught the eye of Dory Funk, Jr., who wanted him in his Amarillo territory, in which he did split his time between the two territories.
In 1975, after a brief stint in San Francisco, he went to Louisiana to work for Bill Watts, where he formed a team with Jerry Brown. He later moved up to Canada in Vancouver, working for Al Tomko and All-Star Wrestling, but didn't last long, as he left after a falling-out with Gene Kiniski. He then moved down to Atlanta for Georgia Championship Wrestling, where he teamed up with Sterling Golden, who would go on to become one of the most iconic wrestlers in the world, Hulk Hogan. He would also wrestle in Knoxville for while, before moving down to Florida.
[edit]Peak years (1977-1988)
It was in Florida, where Bobby Jaggers found his niche. He feuded with Dusty Rhodes all over the territory. During that time, he would wrestle on and off for World Wrestling Council in Puerto Rico, wrestle eighteen tours of Japan, and some shows in South Africa.
In 1984, he went to Portland for Don Owen and Pacific Northwest Wrestling. While there, he won four Heavyweight titles and two Tag Team titles, with one partner each, before leaving for the Mid-Atlantic area ran by Jim Crockett Promotions. While there, he formed his well-known tag team The Kansas Jayhawks with Dutch Mantel. In 1986, they lost to Ivan Koloff and Krusher Khrushchev in a tournament final to determine the inaugural NWA United States Tag Team Champions. Jaggers would remain in JCP until 1988.
[edit]Final years (1988-1991)
By 1988, Bobby Jaggers wrestled actively in Puerto Rico for WWC. But on July 16, 1988, one incident changed his life forever. After a show, Bruiser Brody was murdered in the shower in the locker room. Jaggers was in the heel locker room when Brody was in the face locker room. The murder made him slowly phase his career out, before finally retiring in 1991.
[edit]After wrestling

After retiring, Bobby Jaggers studied civil engineering at Kansas City University and took classes at Butler County Community College. He worked as a engineering technician for the state of Kansas. By 2007, he became a road and bridge specialist for the Department of Homeland Security for Kansas.
[edit]Death

Jaggers passed away on September 30, 2012 from renal failure after a prolonged period of ill health from Hepatitis C, which he had contracted while in the service in Vietnam. He was buried in the Dunlap Cemetery with full military honors. [3]

Thank you for posting that exact DLVH84 quote, CSL. I was hoping he could elaborate more on the little known WWF run Mr. Jaggers had. Despite my official title as the WWF's #1 fan, I will need a hand in the proper info to make my bullet points for the Bobby Jaggers HOF petition to send to Vince McMahon himself.

In 1989, Bobby wrestled for the WWF on select shows all over the state of Kansas. It was during the time that he was slowly calling it a career, finally retiring two years later.

Any of these guys would be good this year or the next couple of years:

I feel like there are an excessive number of unfortunately deceased wrestlers who could go in, in any given year, many who have died fairly recently, mostly prematurely.

Isn't Zybsko in the dog house right now? Don't remember why.

Zybsko and Vince have never gotten along, but a few years ago he sued WWE for Jericho using the term "The Living Legend". I don't remember the outcome, but either or, I'm sure it didn't endear Larry to the WWE. Trust me, he's not going in any time soon.

The Honky Tonk Man has been asked for years now to go into WWE Hall of Fame, but he does what he does for money, and the money offered by WWE isn't good enough for him, and there is also a no complete clause for like 90 days in the contract after being inducted in the Hall of Fame and that would screw up Honky's independent bookings. Honky also feels he's too active in wrestling to be in the Hall of Fame.

Too active....ha. Is barely moving in a wrestling ring and doing half-ass wrestling moves that a teenager could do better really being "active in wrestling"?

I'm telling you exactly what the man himself has said in interviews and on his website. He's not interested. Yes, he would induct Koko but not himself because he can still wrestle on the Indy scene and not be banned from it for 90 days. I believe he also has said that the WWE has rights over the gimmick to for a time being as well.

I agree though - HTM is a no-talent hack and is like a whore - He only does what he does for money and he does a very half-ass job in the ring. I'd still like to see him in the WWE Hall of Fame just cause it amuses how when he is on good terms with Vince he is an even bigger whore then usual, but when he is not on good terms, he bad mouths them like a crack whore.
