Eric Bischoff to be inducted into WWE Hall of Fame




Once upon a time WWE RAW CEO Eric Bischoff should be admitted to WWE Hall of Fame. Bischoff will be part of the 2021 class next month, along with Molly Holly, as well as the 2020 class.

On this week’s After The Bell podcast, SmackDown commentator and show host Corey Graves was a guest of Eric Bischoff. Graves announced to Bischoff that he would be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. Emotional Bischoff was grateful and surprised by the announcement. Here is what Eric Bischoff had to say:

“Wow! Thanks. I don’t know exactly what to say. Wow. That’s great. It’s going to take a few minutes. Wow – that’s all I have. For a guy who won’t shut up a podcast on his own, I have nothing to say, I’m just speechless. Wow. This is going to take a minute.This is just … I’m not going to lie to you because every year at this time I get emails and they ask social media, I’ve always been pretty good at not implying it.I don’t think about it, ever, nor in what real degree.But look at some of the names associated – many names, all names – with the WWE Hall of Fame.I will personalize this for me.

“What is happening to me now, when I first started working in sports entertainment for Verne Gagne in 1987, I knew nothing, I was a big fan of wrestling, I had no experience, it was an opportunity for me to open Verne’s eyes on the pedestal and to think that if someone approached me and said at 20-21, you and Verne Gagne would be in the WWE Hall of Fame, my head would explode. “

Eric Bischoff said the admission to the WWE Hall of Fame is huge. Bischoff said he loved the Hall of Fame event and called it “special.”

Eric Bischoff did not think he would be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame

Eric Bischoff discovered in interview with Sportskeeda Wrestling earlier this year that he didn’t think he would be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.

“It’s funny. It’s almost like an hour. I start getting those questions every year around January. I don’t think about it. Honestly, I don’t think. The only time a thought comes to my mind is when I have to answer a question like this. First of all, to be honest, I don’t think it’s going to happen for a variety of reasons. “

This year’s WWE Hall of Fame will feature not only the 2021 class, but also the 2020 class, as the event could not have been held last year.
