Vince McMahon is the chairman of WWE. He is the man who bought the company from his own father and has pushed over the past few decades to make it the global phenomenon that it currently is.
Despite this, McMahon impressively hasn’t decided to give himself the honor of being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.
The Chairman is the one who chooses all of the inductees each year and with rumors that Triple H could be set to take his place amongst wrestling’s elite next year, many have questioned whether Vince McMahon will be added to this prestigious group as well.
Dave Meltzer was on hand to answer this question on the latest episode of The Wrestling Observer, where he stated that he believed McMahon would be added to the Hall of Fame after he passed away.
“Vince McMahon will be in that Hall Of Fame as soon as he passes away, we all know that. He’s not gonna put himself in because he’s already given himself enough awards. Like when he gave himself that award at Madison Square Garden for being the genius who created WrestleMania… that was awesome,” he said via Ringsidenews.
Vince McMahon has all of the power in WWE and could opt to add himself to the Hall of Fame at any point in the future, but since every member of the WWE Universe is already aware of the contribution he has given to WWE there wouldn’t be much of a point.
There are already a number of rumored names for next year’s Hall of Fame, which include the aforementioned Triple H, The Rock and Vader. Of course, the names won’t start to be released until after the Royal Rumble which means that the speculation will continue until WWE makes their upcoming class official.
