Eric Bischoff’s Absence From nWo WWE Hall Of Fame Reportedly Surprised Some Within The Company
The nWo will be inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame Class of 2020. It’s unclear if they will headline the event or whether that honor will go to Batista. Either way, plenty of fans are very excited about this.
Hulk Hogan, Scott Hall, Kevin Nash, and Sean Waltman are all receiving their second WWE Hall Of Fame rings as part of the event as well. We previously addressed why The Big Show is likely not included in this group.
Eric Bischoff was a big part of the nWo behind the scenes and later on, as part of the faction. Some in WWE were surprised that Eric Bischoff wasn’t included as Brad Shepard reports. This is despite his recent departure from WWE after a very short tenure.
According to a source in #WWE, there was surprise internally that Eric Bischoff won’t be inducted into the Hall of Fame as part of the NWO, in spite of his recent tenure in the company.
You can never say never in WWE. That being said, perhaps Eric Bischoff will receive his own induction someday. It didn’t happen this year as WWE is only recognizing four members of the nWo faction instead of the 62 members that they could include. That would be a lot of rings.
