During an interview with Steve Fall of Wrestlingnewsco, legendary referee Earl Hebner was asked if he thinks he should be in the WWE Hall of Fame.

Earl said he should be, but thinks it’s not going to happen because of his issues with Vince McMahon.

Hebner also said that WWE should’ve inducted fellow veteran referee Tim White into the Hall of Fame a long time ago. WWE posthumously honored White with the Warrior Award at the 2023 Hall of Fame ceremony.

Here’s what Hebner said:

“I should but I don’t know. There were a few problems when I left with me and Vince so I don’t know.

They should have put Tim White in the Hall of Fame way way before he passed away. I think the Hall of Fame means nothing if you’re not alive. You don’t get any benefits out of it. It’s just you know, what good does it do you?

What would it do me if I was dead and they put me in the Hall of Fame. What does it mean? Nothing. I don’t know it. Timmy didn’t know it. What the hell? He’s not the only one. Vader, Macho Man. What good does it do you know?

Timmy deserved it way, way long before they gave it to him. Before he passed. He deserved it probably 10 years before that, the way he took care of Andre and kept Andre going and, and everything. But, you know, there were a lot of other referees that need to be in the Hall of Fame, but I don’t know if they’re gonna put any referees in. No big deal to me either way.

All the people in the Hall of Fame that’s not wrestlers, they don’t belong in the Hall of Fame. Would any of those people go into the Baseball Hall of Fame or the NFL Hall of Fame? Hell no, they wouldn’t. So you get all these jabronies to come in? It’s a joke.”
