There was talk a few years ago that Shirley Crabtree aka Big Daddy would be worthy of a induction for him and his families contribution to the UK wrestling scene and also their partnership during early 80s with Vince sr and stampede.

While I think Big Daddy Crabtree is certainly worthy of an induction, you're rumor milling, and there's enough misinformation in the world as it is.

A good rule of thumb is to say to yourself "Can I take two seconds and run a google search on this to back up what I'm saying?" Because I did and outside of a misspelled Facebook group and likeminded wishes, you got nothing.

If he did that then he'd have almost nothing to post.

Exactly, Stigs. It's not legitimate discussion of whether or not Big Daddy Crabtree should be in the HoF, it's a wrestler, with absolutely no influence or authority over such matters, bantering on a talk show. He's just giving an opinion like anyone else. I don't even know why it was worth bringing up in the first place.

Google, man, the collective knowledge of humanity is at everyone's fingertips. It's never been easier to weed the lies from the truth. Take it as a learning experience and the next time you want to add a little factoid to a conversation, take two seconds to verify it on a Google search. Like I said before, there's enough misinformation out there, no one needs to add to that pile.

The Vincent K McMahon award. So Vince Jr holds his dad with the utmost respect and this is evidenced by the fact that his father has never once been mentioned as part of a story when Jr feuded with anyone - "What would your dad think if he could see you now, Vince?"

I've read that this award is something serious and not part of any story or angle. No clue what it could possibly be, especially the part of "nobody has earned it until now".

Didn't know that double posts were still possible. Mr Mcneish, delete this if you can please.

Vincent K. McMahon is Vince Jr.

If the award is named after his father, it would have to be the Vincent J. McMahon Award.

I'm also curious about the Vincent J McMahon award. (purpose, criteria, etc.) Considering that Vince Sr has been held in high regard by the wrestling community, combined with his standing as a historical figure in the industry, it would seem logical to have such an award. As much as announcers like to name drop, it is surprising that his name almost never referenced. Over the years, I've heard Shane McMahon, indirectly mention him, referring to WWE as "a company started by my grandfather" a time or two, but the only time I've heard the name "Vincent J McMahon", specifically was during Paul Heyman's rant on Vince during the invasion angle. Otherwise, the younger or casual fan probably has no clue who he is.

Jim Johnston, Howard Finkel, Pat Patterson, or someone like that would be my choice to get the award.

I'd predict they give it to HHH as an angle. But who knows.
