The 2018 WWE Hall of Fame induction ceremony is less than a month away. This year’s class will include Goldberg, the Dudley Boyz, Ivory, Jeff Jarrett, Hillbilly Jim and Kid Rock.
WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley appeared on the Busted Open radio show this week and spoke about two legends he feels belong in the Hall of Fame.
Foley, who was inducted back in 2013, told hosts Dave LaGreca & Tommy Dreamer that he wants to see longtime rival and former WCW world champion Vader immortalized.
“Leon was so dominant not just in WCW, I mean he’ll be the first to tell you, if he came in during the attitude era in WWE he would have been amazing,” he said. “They had him from the get-go running away from people. I remember driving with him and he would be like ‘I’m Vader and running away from people!’. Where as I was given open reign to do whatever I wanted with my character, he just seemed to have so many people in his ear to tell him how to be Vader, when he’s done it successfully all over the world…. I think when you take into account everything he’s accomplished in WCW, NJPW, Mexico and in Germany and Europe.”
Mick Foley said he’d also like to see fellow Attitude Era performer Chyna in the WWE Hall of Fame. Chyna has been persona non grata in the WWE Universe over the past several years, with Triple H famously stating that she’s an unlikely candidate because, ‘what would the children think if they Googled her?’ WWE has softened its stance on Chyna lately, including her in video packages and Triple H and Stephanie McMahon even mentioning her on WWE television in recent months. Foley feels it’s time to honor formally honor the late 9th Wonder of the World.
“I also really like just the fact that Chyna is being mentioned and she’s being shown in clips. I would love to see her in. I know how much it would mean to her mom. I tell people you can’t let that one decision dictate if your career was a success. I didn’t wander around wondering if my career had meant anything because I wasn’t in the hall of fame, but it is a big deal.”
