In February 1993, the WWE Hall of Fame was established to honor and immortalize the best WWE Superstars and Divas in history. The late, great Andre the Giant became the first inductee.

That same year, rival organization WCW responded with the formation of their own Hall of Fame, which focused on the legends that competed in NWA and Jim Crockett Promotions — the organizations that ultimately paved the way for WCW.

Over the course of three years, the WCW Hall of Fame inducted 17 renowned competitors, including retired, semi-retired and posthumous honorees. WCW’s annual Slamboree event hosted the induction ceremony and also featured a “Legends Reunion” that honored NWA and Jim Crockett Promotions competitors.
