Booker T Believes Eric Bischoff Should Not Be Inducted Into WWE Hall Of Fame With NWO
He has strong feelings about the boss getting involved...
The 2020 WWE Hall of Fame class includes the New World Order, which, if every member were to be inducted, would total beyond three dozen members.
WWE's idea of the nWo, for induction purposes, streamlines the group to just four men: Hulk Hogan, Scott Hall, Kevin Nash, and Syxx. This leaves out a few notable members, including shot-calling mouthpiece Eric Bischoff.
Count former WCW World champion Booker T among those who doesn't believe Bischoff should be inducted with the nWo.
Booker, while giving Bischoff props for doing right by him personally and for many other performers, explained, "I just thought that was the recipe for disaster, and the demise at the end of the day, for WCW. I just don’t know, people can say ‘well Vince McMahon, he played a part in the company.’ Well, it was his money. It was his company. Eric Bischoff was hired to do a certain job, and I say the same thing about Vince Russo.
"I always thought when Eric Bischoff stopped running the company, and became a star on the WCW show; I think that was the beginning of the end. I think there was no way he could actually manage or micromanage, you know, the company from that perspective."
