Once some of these guys who are closer to retirement get in, I can see TNA inducting someone from the past. My biggest problem is that most of these guys weren't around long enough in my opinion to garner what I personally think of as a HOF run with the company. Jarrett easily comes to mind, AJ, Abyss, Storm, Roode, Joe... These are the guys I think of when I hear of a TNA induction. It's nice that they gave guys like Sting and Kurt the nod for how they helped TNA to grow, but it was a drop in the bucket to their total career; Kurt's being the closest to Borderline since he debuted in 1998 and spent 8 years with WWE before jumping ship and spending the past 7 years with TNA). I just think giving the HOF nod to someone who helped Pioneer the company would help me to accept the TNA HOF more than giving it to the biggest names in your current company. I'd much rather see Jerry Lynn as the next HOF name than Hulk Hogan, but with the logic presented, Hogan will probably be next.
