Push For Paul Bearer To Be Inducted Into WWE Hall of Fame, Big Show Appearing On Psych, Glenn Beck

– After news broke Tuesday evening that Bill Moody, famously known as Paul Bearer, had passed away, there was a push among some WWE circles to posthumously induct the legendary manager into the WWE Hall of Fame this year.

Bearer addressed the topic to Chris Yandek of www.cyinterview.com in an interview in January, stating, “I know that I will [be in the WWE Hall of Fame]. So that’s all I need to know. Whether it’s next year or whether it’s five years from now, I know the time’s coming. … I’ve been very, very blessed in professional wrestling because I’m just a Alabama kid, from the Alabama Gulf Coast that grew up watching local territory days wrestling. … I have been all around the world. I performed in all 50 states, 28 countries and I got a paycheck every week.”

– The USA Network announced via press release Wednesday that Big Show will guest star on the next episode of Psych, which premieres Wednesday at 10:00 p.m.

– With conservative commentator Glenn Beck refusing to associate with WWE after publicly speaking out again Tea Party-inspired villains Jack Swagger and Zeb Colter, the sports-entertainment organization has nixed plans to draw attention to him.

    I know you can’t induct all at once, but some of these guys could, and should had been added, while alive. Bearer, Macho, Etc. Were they worried they’d go to TNA or something? Or that they would need to use them again on TV? So what? I’m glad Bruno’s going in now.

    Again, I know they can’t induct all at once cause they’d run out of HOF’er fast but…I’m sure they can come up with something.

    Unless they had in mind adding Bearer with Taker in the next few years (possible.)

    If not HOF, at least tribute former wrestlers every now and then (Instead of Wrestlemanias rewinds which are the same every year.)

  • DigitalWWE

    They should do next years old with just dead people that should’ve been inducted already. Macho Man, Paul Bearer, etc etc. That would be one hell of a HoF

    • askbillmitchell

      You can’t have more than one person (no more than two) people inducted into a HOF posthumously. It’s a mood killer, and no one is going to pay money to attend a HOF ceremony or watch a ceremony where the vibe is doom and gloom. I think when ever UT gets the nod, I think he and Moody should be inducted together. I think it’s only fitting.

        Even Uncle Paul himself would want that.

        I remember him telling me on Twitter that he would’ve wanted to be inducted in the same year as ‘Taker and Kane.

        But for now, I think the best scenario would be for Uncle Paul to be inducted this year, with ‘Taker (even with Kane and Mick) doing the honors.

        • ._.

          Just out of curiosity, why do you call him Uncle Paul? If he was really your uncle, you’d call him Uncle William, or Uncle Bill, so I am just a little confused. Maybe I’m missing something here …

          • MrJimmy

            Mankind called him Uncle Paul when Bearer managed him. It’s a nick name.

          • ._.

            Oh. I don’t remember that. Thanks!

        • askbillmitchell

          Now there is an idea, the brothers of destruction and Paul inducted with Mick Foley doing the inducting. With Kane knowing what is it 7 different languages? That could be a long acceptance speech.

        Frankly I wouldn’t be surprised if WWE never puts taker in the HoF. He certainly deserves to be there but I think Vince is afraid to kill the mystique of the character by doing so.

        By having Taker wrestle only once a year at Mania he can still get another 5 Manias out of Taker if he wants too. Hell, knowing Vince, maybe more.

      If that happened WWE wouldn’t sell any tickets for the event because no one would be appearing to accept.

      • DigitalWWE

        I highly doubt that.

        • http://twitter.com/AJCampbellNYG Andrew Campbell

          Part of the attraction of going to a Hall Of Fame ceremony is to see these stars of the past honoured in person. That’s the reason WWE selects atleast one huge name to lead the class each year, someone who they know will draw. Edge led the class last year and HBK the year before that.

          I don’t mean to sound insensitive but as a wrestling fan I wouldn’t pay money for a ticket to ONLY see the families of deceased stars accepting on their behalf. I doubt WWE would sell out MSG for a ceremony where all the inductees are deceased.

  • Scott Kinnard

    Paul Bearer should have been inducted years ago. It’s ashame he won’t be here to receive the honor. I’ll bet he’d have some great stories.

      kane and undertaker need to induct him. with undertaker after saying his trademark”REST IN PEACE”


  • http://twitter.com/AJCampbellNYG Andrew Campbell

    Glenn Beck is a nobody and WWE ended up giving the guy free promotion. They even got him trending on twitter. If WWE devoted half of the effort that they did on the Beck debacle as they did to getting some of their younger talent over, WWE would have alot more stars right now.

    • http://www.facebook.com/craig.deboard Craig DeBoard

      Them calling out Beck was an attempt to try to get Swagger over. WWE has teamed up and coming talent with celebrities since Mania 1.

      • http://twitter.com/AJCampbellNYG Andrew Campbell

        I wouldn’t exactly call Beck a “celebrity”. Also, love the name of the song.

    • http://www.facebook.com/craig.deboard Craig DeBoard

      Incidentally, I hate Glen Beck. In fact my punk band did a song. Look it up on YouTube. we’re a band called The Toxics and the song is called Glenn Beck Is A Cunt.

      If it was that easy they would have done it already.

    • John Styles

      im just confused, who is Glen Beck ?

    Silence is Silver but my Words are GOLDEN ,so shut up and read

    This is to certify the fact that I’m blocked again and again by those lameass,incompetent,lowlife scumbags and mentally handicapped bunch of idiots consisting of PG tools and cheatlord Cena’s worshippers who unprofessionally called themselves admins of WRESTLINGINC.COM………

    Among the great people of them,there are some deformed ten-head and hands deity worshipping immigrant scums from the lowest and dirtiest places on earth that are certified pusssies with fake accounts who blocks great trolls like THE COUNT whenever they got owned as always ,and these very association of untalented scums came from different untalented backgrounds as you can possibly see.They couldn’t even generate decent spoilers of their own and have to either copy or bootleg their sources from other better websites as you all know it..Its the only cult group on earth who blocks user just because of exposing the dirty and disgusting truths about the biggest backstage politician on earth and cheatlord bully called JOHN the CANCER cena,the deformed cowboy wannabe backstage politician cum Political stooge Jim -the goodfella talking from the side of the mouth-Ross,the fake Jamaican and real african PG brown-nosing chimpanzee called Kofi- the john laurinitis’s real life asss kisser cum coffee maker-Kingston and the mother of all she-devil cum the BITCHH and ever failing politician wannabe HAG Linda McMahon…

    They just thought that worshipping these PG clowns would cement their positive status to WWE as a whole and maybe they’d be known enough oneday in the future that they could actually land up in the WWE offices rather than maintaining this junk hole they called their own PG site..If you go to any other websites or in particular,those website where they used to obtained and bootleg their sources,I guaran-damn-tee that you will never find such pusssy like these clownshoes who worships the PG agendas like nazis and oppose anyone with the attitude era’s mindset vested with truths.

    And in closing,these bunch of jabronis,among the other great admins,consists of virgins who are mostly hommos, fake Christians,illegal aliens and bloody brownskin immigrants who thought supporting cena or PG makes them look more americans or respected citizens whilst in reality,you just couldn’t find more pathetic wannabes even if you travel half the damn globe.

    So I will be gone for now but I beg each and every great fellow anti-cenas,attitude,wcw and original ecw fans to go on exposing what you believe in.You just can’t let such lowlife scums of jabronis let you bite all those PG craps they trya shove down your throat through this shitthole website..And anyone who wants more inside sources or truth about these scumbags among the good admins,plz do inform…I WILL EXPOSE MORE IN DETAIL IF YOU WANT TO,STRAIGHT TO THE BONE MARROWS

    PEACE be with you all outlaws…My spirit will always be with you…see you on the other side 4

    • MrJimmy

      Who cares? Just fuck off.

      • Reality

        just read his name and don’t feed him

  • morrisonfanone

    Good. I called this. I would like to see Kane and Undertaker induct him.

  • http://www.facebook.com/HershBar Hershey Maxwell Barber

    They should wait till next year. This just seems too rushed.

  • http://www.facebook.com/ldozier3 Lorenzo Dozier

    It’s too soon to put him in the Hall of Fame. The family needs time to
    grieve. I understand that they did this with Eddie Guerrero a couple of
    years ago but think about the Family first, they need peace. Let him go
    in next year and have either Glen & Mark induct him into the Hall of

    This year would of been great too but, we already have a decent stack
    list for 2013. Let alone, Randy Savage didn’t get put in yet, he died
    too. Let’s put him in around 2014, sounds more special for the 30th anniversary of Mania

  • http://www.facebook.com/craig.deboard Craig DeBoard

    I believe Paul should have been inducted a long time ago and I have no problem with him being inducted now, but can we PLEASE stop thinking that just because someone dies they should automatically get a spot in the HoF? It’s just dumb.

    Death does not mean someone had a great career. It just means they’re dead.

  • mr meow

    I think the only reason to rush it for this year is if it’s going to be Undertaker’s last Wrestlemania, I’m not sure if it’s unnecessary sentimentalism, but it somehow seems right for Bearer to go in at Undertaker’s last Wrestlemania.

  • Jose

    I agree he should have been in the hall of fame already. The only reason on why I think they held back was maybe to induct him with Taker. Only reasonable.

    But what bothers me the most is that if Bearer does get inducted into the hall of fame, of course Taker is the only choice along with Kane. But would they let Taker do it? I mean think about it they’re so into his character that I wonder if they’ll allow taker to come out and break kayfabe. He’s never at any other all of fame or ever since he returned to the dead man gimmick just hiding. Hopefully they won’t let the character stop Taker from inducting him.

  • KhaoticKayla

    please do not put him in the HOF. His wish was not to be inducted until Kane and Undertaker would. That would be insulting his memory if you don’t follow his wishes
