Tony Schiavone is on AEW Dynamite most weeks, but you’ll never hear his name at the WWE Hall Of Fame. Not even on his dead body.
During What Happened When, Tony Schiavone discussed how WWE “f*cked” Eric Bischoff by leaving him out of the WWE Hall Of Fame. The nWo will be inducted without Bischoff, but Schiavone expected as much.
The legendary sports announcer went on to explain that he has instructed his family to never all WWE to induct him into their Hall Of Fame. It doesn’t matter if he’s already dead, Tony Schiavone doesn’t want an induction.
“Well Eric got f*cked over once by Vince [McMahon] this year, so why wouldn’t Vince f*ck him over again? You know what? That’s f*cking fine with me,” Schiavone said about not going into the WWE Hall Of Fame. “And I hope that I’m working with AEW until the day I die, because once it’s all over with, my family has been instructed… I’ve told you this I think on the air here before.”
“My family has been instructed that if they want to induct me in anyway, postmortem, the answer from the family is no. So, don’t expect from me to be inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame. You know, now I’m pissed off. I’m pissed off because Eric is not a part of the n.W.o. into the Hall Of Fame, and I’m pissed off because Eric got f*cked over by Vince McMahon. Not Bruce Prichard, who’s our friend, who’s a good guy, straight up guy, but by Vince McMahon.”
“You know, and everybody knows that Eric was brought in just so he could get fired, and that f*cking sucks. I know it, and I’ll guarantee you that I’m right, and the fact he wasn’t put in the n.W.o. Hall Of Fame — into the Hall Of Fame with the n.W.o. confirms it.”
It looks like we can cross Tony Schiavone off the list of future WWE Hall Of Fame inductees. His contributions to WCW alone would probably warrant an induction. It’s not happening and Schiavone seemed very serious about it too.
