5 WWE Hall of Famers Who Failed To Win Singles Championship in WWE

WWE has their very own Hall of Fame that’s made up of some of the biggest names in the world of pro wrestling. Some of these superstars won multiple titles during their time with the WWE. Stars like Bruno Sammartino, Andre the Giant, Hulk Hogan, and Ric Flair had multiple championship reigns in the WWE. Then there are legends who surprisingly failed to win a singles title in Vince McMahon’s promotion. That being said, here are five WWE Hall of Famers who didn’t capture a singles title during their time in the WWE.

Harley Race

One of the toughest men to ever lace up a pair of boots, Harley Race competed for wrestling promotions around the world. Race is one of the six men to receive inductions in the WWE Hall of Fame, the NWA Hall of Fame, the WCW Hall of Fame, the Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame, and the Wrestling Observer Newsletter Hall of Fame.

Though Race spent nearly three years in the WWE, he failed to win a singles title despite working major pay-per-view events such as King of the Ring and WrestleMania. Race was inducted into WWE’s Hall of Fame in 2004. Sadly, he passed away in 2019.

Jake “The Snake” Roberts

One of the few stars that made fans boo Hulk Hogan, Jake “The Snake” Roberts worked numerous stints in the WWE. Unfortunately, none of the appearances led him to world title glory. Jake Roberts was known for his ability to cut chilling promos as well as his deadly DDT finisher.

Jake Roberts is currently signed to All Elite Wrestling where he manages “The Murderhawk Monster” Lance Archer. Most recently, Jake Roberts managed Archer during his match against Wardlow few on AEW Dynamite.

Jerry Lawler

Jerry Lawler carried the Attitude Era commentary alongside Jim Ross. King’s association with Vince McMahon is decades old. Lawler was the face of the Memphis territory of professional wrestling and won more than 165 championships during his illustrious career.

Lawler signed with WWE (then WWF) in 1992 but failed to capture a singles title during his career with the company that’s continuing to this day. Lawler was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as a member of the Class of 2007.

Vader

Vader was arguably the greatest big man to step foot inside the squared circle. The real-life Leon White had a successful career in the NFL before making a name for himself in pro wrestling. Vader worked different stints in All Japan, New Japan Pro Wrestling and WCW, winning titles in all three promotions.

The big man joined WWE in 1996 and made his in-ring debut at the 30-Man Royal Rumble match the same year. Despite being involved in multiple title bouts against the likes of Shawn Michaels and The Undertaker, Vader failed to win any of those matches. He was inducted into HOF posthumously in 2022.

Dusty Rhodes

The Dream will forever be enshrined in the history books for his tremendous contributions to the world of pro wrestling. Dusty Rhodes won multiple titles outside of WWE but failed to capture any during his different stints with the company between 1977 and 1983.

Dusty Rhodes

His youngest son, Cody Rhodes, is currently navigating the upper echelons of WWE to capture the title that eluded his illustrious father throughout his career. Cody has made it clear that he wants the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. We’ll have to wait for that time to come.
