Torrie Wilson Responds To Negative Backlash Over Hall Of Fame Inclusion

Torrie Wilson was recently announced to be joining WWE's Hall Of Fame Class of 2019. She has since seen a negative backlash to this news, and has responded.

We recently reported on former WWE Superstar, Torrie Wilson, becoming an inductee into WWE’s Hall Of Fame Class of 2019.

Since then, however, there has been some negative backlash regarding her induction by some members of the WWE Universe. They do not believe that she has earned a spot amongst the other members of WWE’s Hall Of Fame.

Speaking with David LeGreca and Bully Ray on Busted Open Radio, Torrie Wilson addressed these comments and the fans who have been criticising WWE for wanting her to join her peers like Trish Stratus and Lita.

“I think some of the people that are angry are the same people that are forgetting that this is an entertainment show and I was not calling the shots backstage going, ‘Hey Vince, can I please wrestle in a bikini tonight?’” she explained. “I actually was out there with Fit Finlay going, ‘OK, what’s the most athletic match I can put together with a bikini on?”

During her tenure with the company, one thing Torrie Wilson was never able to accomplish was becoming a champion — a fact she is acutely aware of after making a list of her accomplishments once she’d received the phone call by Mark Carrano offering her a HOF spot.

“Immediately when I hung up the phone, I sat there and thought, like…I basically started putting together this list of all the things I’m not. And I was never a champion,” Wilson said.

“I could do much better than my haters about beating myself up. Then I had to put myself in check but there are a lot of things that I am. I’m not Charlotte Flair, I’m not jumping off ladders, but I am Torrie Wilson and I did have something to bring to the table. I think for most people, we are just too quick to start listening to the negatives and losing focus on what we can bring to the table.”

Torrie Wilson joins The Honky Tonk Man and D-Generation X (Triple H, Shawn Michaels, Billy Gunn, Road Dogg, X-Pac, and Chyna.)

This year’s HOF ceremony takes place on April 6th, 2019 from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York over WrestleMania weekend.
