...Sammarntino ect? Or, was he 'too small time' meaning he was HUGE in his own territory but everywhere else, he wasn't as big? (Anything he's done in the WWF doesn't count. I'm talking about pre-WWF Lawler)















Did I call Lawler small time? No I didn't. That is a belief among some, that he was his biggest in his own territory and didn't travel the world like Flair did

That's hard to say considering the WWE does often zero in on the global conglomoration of wrestling when it comes to naming legends. I consider Lawler a legend, even if a majority of his fame has to do with his own egotistical booking. He was big in Memphis when being big in the South meant everything in wrestling.































So I'd count him, but if he gets in at all under the WWE's terms, it'll probably be due to announcing

He did some great things to promote the sport in its own right. Remember the Andy Kaufman piledriver? Great stuff......
