Eric Bischoff Unsure Who Will Induct Him Into The WWE Hall Of Fame
His induction was confirmed on Thursday
Eric Bischoff does not believe there is an obvious choice to induct him into the WWE Hall Of Fame, although feels Hulk Hogan would be the first person to do the job in his own mind.
Bischoff was confirmed on Thursday as the second name in the Class of 2021 for the WWE Hall Of Fame. The former WCW executive producer and WWE on-air talent will join Molly Holly in this year's Class.
Since the news was announced, speculation on social media has turned to who could induct Bischoff. The 65-year-old has enjoyed infamous on-screen battles with the likes of 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin and John Cena, while the intensity of The Monday Night Wars has led some to consider Vince McMahon.
However, Bischoff himself named Hulk Hogan as a potential option due to their work together on the NWO in WCW, while also suggesting former TBS and WCW Executive Bill Shaw.
“I don’t know that there’s an obvious answer to me," Bischoff told the After 83 Weeks Podcast. “Clearly Hulk [Hogan] is one of my best friends, and the history that we have together in the industry and the friendship that we’ve maintained…Certainly, if I have to sit down and think about that, that’s [Hogan] probably where I’m going to go to first.
"I’ve got a family that I would love to see up there too, and sharing that moment. My wife, or my wife and my kids, or there are other people. Bill Shaw, who gave me the real opportunity that I had in WCW, would be someone that I would think about. There’s a lot of people that come to my mind that make sense."
