• WWE Veteran Explains Why The Hall Of Fame Doesn’t Mean Much
During an interview with veteran referee Mike Chioda on Mailbag Mondays, former SmackDown Ring Announcer Tony Chimel was asked if he thinks WWE will induct him into the Hall of Fame one day.
Chimel went on to say the following:
“It really doesn’t mean much, the Hall of Fame. It’s just another venue for them to make a crap ton of money.
It’s nice if you get in there or you get asked to be in there whatever but let’s call it what it is – it’s a money-making machine and that’s what they do it for.”
Chimel said he doesn’t think WWE will ever call him for an induction, but if they do, he wants John Cena or Edge to induct him.
While he thinks the WWE Hall of Fame doesn’t mean much, he did note that there are people who are very worthy of being inducted, and was pleased to see late referee Tim White getting honored this year.
WWE Hall of Fame currently has 246 inductees.
