Paul Heyman is set to be honored with induction into the WWE Hall of Fame.

The announcement, made by the AP on Monday, revealed Heyman as the inaugural member of the honorary class. The induction ceremony is scheduled to take place on April 5th at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, a city synonymous with Heyman’s groundbreaking work in ECW.

Reflecting on his illustrious career, Heyman expressed gratitude for the recognition but emphasized that he still feels he has much left to accomplish. “I consistently feel like I’m just getting started, and I’m just figuring this out,” Heyman remarked.

Despite his remarkable achievements, he views his body of work as incomplete, driven by a relentless desire to continue pushing boundaries and achieving new heights.


Heyman’s journey in wrestling spans decades, starting in the 1970s when he served as a photographer for Vince McMahon Sr. in WWWF. He later made his mark as a manager in WCW before revolutionizing the industry as the creative force behind ECW in the mid-90s. Heyman’s innovative storytelling and unparalleled vision cemented his legacy as one of the most influential figures in wrestling history.

The decision to hold the induction ceremony in Philadelphia, the iconic home of ECW, adds an extra layer of significance to Heyman’s induction, honoring his profound impact on the industry and his enduring legacy in the city where his revolutionary vision took flight.
