Dusty and Eric team up to talk about all of the inductees into the first class of the Stunt Granny Hall of Fame. Oh, you’ve read the listings below, but have you really — and I mean really — thought about why each of those inductees is in an elite fraternity such as the Stunt Granny Hall of Fame? Well, you might have thought you thought about it, but Dusty and Eric have thought about it more, and they continue the explanation via a discussion right here. (And they might even tease nominees for next year! And by “might,” I mean “do”!) So click to listen!
The best matches. The matches that mean the most to you. The matches you have fond recollections of. The matches you want to see over and over and over again. You know the drill.

Here are the inductees into the fun wrestler wing of the Hall. The first one listed got an automatic bid, because he’s fucking awesome that’s why.
Evil Doink the Clown
Honky Tonk Man
Big Boss Man
There are seven inductees into the Serious Wrestler wing of the Hall. The first three were automatic bids, meaning that they appeared on enough initial nominee ballots that they didn’t even need to be put to vote. I will list the inductees below, and then later on tonight me and Eric Nelson will be recording a very special Stunt Granny Audio to talk about them all.

This day marks the second anniversary of the start up of ye olde Stunt Granny. To celebrate such a momentous occasion, I am pleased to announce the official Stunt Granny Hall of Fame opens today! There will be four official wings therein:
Serious wrestlers: This wing celebrates the lineage that dates back to Frank Gotch and George Hackenschmidt. We’re talking about good workers, high flyers, brawlers, whatever. Serious money drawing, money making talent.
Fun wrestlers: We here at Stunt Granny are big fans of comedy in wrestling, as long as it is done right. For example, a fat white man dancing poorly while claiming to be from deepest, darkest Africa will beat a midget transvestite any day of the week.
Angles: We’re talking about memorable, money drawing angles that inspired you to buy the next PPV, go to the next show in your area, watch the next television show on your favorite cable network, etc. Abortions and miscarriages need not apply.
Matches: We at Stunt Granny don’t give two scoops of Kellogg’s Raisin Fuck if a match was four stars or only three and a quarter stars or whatever. We just know what we like to watch. These are the matches we wear out our Beta, VHS and DVD players to.
Each one of the five of us – me, Jeremy Maes, Eric Nelson, Kevin DiFrango, Jordan Smith – nominated five people or things per category. And then we voted on them. A nominee needed three or more “yes” votes in order to be inducted into the Hall of Fame. What follows will be four separate posts, one for each wing, listing the first annual inductees into each wing of the Hall. Before I get to that, I’d like to remind you that the Stunt Granny Hall of Fame is brought to you by Red Baron frozen pizza, which just so happens to be the best frozen pizza that could possibly happen. Perhaps you should enjoy a slice today, while reading about the inductees. – Dusty
