Does Yokozuna deserve to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame?

This has been something I have been thinking about since I learned of his induction into the WWE Hall of Fame on Tuesday during the Smackdown taping and that would be. Is Yokozuna a Hall of Famer? My initial reaction was to say Yes he was but after doing some research on him he wasn’t really in the business that long at least in the national spotlight for 6 years, in that time he won the Royal Rumble had 2 world title reigns along with winning the Tag Team titles on two occasions with the late Owen Hart. At the end of his stint with the WWE he was unable to pass a physical required for professional wrestlers by the New York State Athletic Commission and was eventually released from the WWF in 1998, although rumors persisted that he would be brought back if he lost enough weight. Yokozuna could do some amazing things in the ring for that time but by no means was it “mind blowing” . Is that enough to put you in a Hall of Fame? Or is it that the WWE is paying their respect because he is part of the legendary Anoa’I family which includes The Rock?

I do give Yokozuna credit for one important thing in wrestling history he Bonsai dropped Hulk Hogan straight to WCW Hell!!
