Vince Russo slates the WWE and the way they treat their Hall of Famers

Published 7 Comments

Former WWE writer Vince Russo has slammed his former employer and said the Hall of Fame has done more hard than good for the company.

Pleading a case for Chyna's induction

Russo recently commented on CSRWrestling about the events involving WWE Hall of Famers such as Hulk Hogan, Sunny, and Jimmy Snuka, and he had a very strong opinion on how the company was treating their situations.

He made the case that if those three Hall of Famers are allowed to keep their spot in the hall despite their history and what they have done (racist remarks in the case of Hogan, DUIs in the case of Sunny, and possible murder in the case of Snuka) then why can’t someone like Chyna be inducted? Or, should all three of them be removed from the Hall because of their actions.

He challenged Hunter, also known as Triple H, directly to reconsider his decision over Chyna not being inducted into the Hall of Fame because of her history in the adult film industry. Triple H as you may remember made comments about Chyna’s career after the WWE, saying it wouldn’t be something he would like to be associated with the Hall of Fame.

HOF doing more harm than good

In terms of the Hall of Fame itself, Russo also said it has done more harm than good to the company.

He said: “Here’s the cold, hard, truth. The WWE Hall of Fame has done more harm than good for the WWE. Whether you are in, or out, means nothing—if the fans had a say-so, yes, but a stubborn owner with a long memory and not such a quick, forgiving spirit—maybe not so much.

“If you want to honor veterans of the ring—GREAT—but, honor them in a way where it REALLY helps them—in their pocketbook. I’m not talking about dollars and cents of a “Legend’s contract.” I’m talking about REAL, PAYING WORK inside the organization. That’s what all the professional sports teams do when they REALLY want to take care of their alumni.

“Make them scouts, put them in the training facility where they can teach the psychology of promos and in-ring work, make them spokespersons for the company–ambassadors, let them work with the various WWE charities—there are hundreds of ways to utilize these former employs in a way that will actually “HELP” them. A Vince McMahon pat on the back doesn’t put food on the table.

“Man, the WWE just needs to get real. Stop the B***S*** for once. You really want to HONOR these guys and gals that gave you their bodies and lives for decades—then honor them where they can really use the help–and that’s financially.

“It will make their lives much easier, and prevent you from having to towel egg off your face every time a Hall of Famer makes a bad decision—or—one that you deem as being.”

WWE Fans: What do you think? Do you agree with Vince Russo? Should Chyna be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame? Or should Hulk Hogan, Sunny, and Jimmy Snuka be removed from the Hall? Leave a comment below…
