When Kevin Greene played for the Pittsburgh Steelers, he created more than just a name for himself. He developed an almost Hulk Hogan type of aura with his long blonde hair, and his ability to sack the quarterback. He was a large part of the team who made it to Super Bowl XXX to face the Dallas Cowboys, and although he played for the Rams, Steelers, 49ers and Panthers, it shouldn't come as a surprise he went into the Pro Football Hall of Fame as a member of the black and gold.

On the complete other side of the spectrum is Tony Dungy. A former player, and coach, for the Steelers, was as quiet as they come, but proved you don't have to be loud and boisterous to be successful. His success as a coach was always linked back to Chuck Noll, who gave him his first coaching job as an assistant in 1981.

It is great for Steelers fans to be able to boast of the ridiculous amount of members of this prestigious fantasy team who sport the hypocycloids next to their bust.

Speaking of busts, how awesome did Kevin Greene's look when it was unveiled Saturday night at the enshrinement ceremony?

So, with Greene and Dungy as the latest editions, it is time to update the list of Steelers players and owners who are forever enshrined in Canton, OH.

Take a look at the list below, and most will still get frustrated without Donnie Shell and L.C. Greenwood on the list.
