Dan Severn Wants to Be Inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame and He Should Be: Amateur Wrestling/MMA/Pro Wrestling Star Speaks Out
In amateur wrestling, mixed martial arts and professional wrestling, Dan Severn’s contributions stand out.

One of his runs as champ was one of the longest in the NWA title’s history. His reign as champion gave him a chance to spend time with professional wrestling legend Lou Thesz. A former WWE superstar, he was part of the company during one of the most successful periods of that promotion’s history.
