Jim Ross Believes Lex Luger Will Be Inducted Into The WWE Hall Of Fame "At Some Point In Time"

JR wants to see The Total Package in the hall of fame

Despite a noteworthy career that featured multiple world title reigns and a defining moment of the Monday Night Wars, Lex Luger has yet to be inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame.

Former WWE Commentator Jim Ross believes The Total Package will eventually receive a Hall Of Fame ring, though. 

"Some of those things we just talked about, the embarrassment he'd thrown on the company. I believe he will be. I believe that Lex Luger will be in the WWE Hall of Fame," Ross said on Grilling JR.

"I think it will be a popular decision when it occurs because he'll be allowed, in his two or three minutes he's allocated, which we've talked about before is ridiculous. Don't induct so damn many people. Have a manageable number of people so they have the appropriate time, using common sense and logic, to tell their story. He's got a hell of a story to tell.

"So, I believe that Lex will be in the WWE Hall of Fame at some point in time. That's just my take on it. I don't have any insider knowledge and all that good sh*t. I haven't talked to Dave or anybody else about it. I think cooler heads will prevail at some point in time and he'll be inducted. But, I think this burning of the bridges, how he conducted himself on his exit, things like that contributed to him," JR continued.

"But if they want to tell stories and they want a visual, Lex obviously thank God still alive, here's a guy that can be rolled onto the stage to tell his story. He's in a wheelchair. So, if you're looking for a story, this could be a great story. A story of success because Lex found true happiness in his faith and many heathens don't give a sh*t about faith to any degree.

"So, I think he'll be in and I think it'll be a great induction. I truly believe that. I think it'll be great. So, we'll see, but I think that some old wounds just don't heal as quickly as others. When you embarrass the company to some degree and look, here's the thing, Vince put the Warrior in, so I don't know that Lex did anything more egregious by a long shot than the Warrior did to WWE," the former WWE commentator added.

"Do they still have that Warrior Award? And you and I are discussing Luger going to the Hall of Fame? It's a no-brainer. I think Vince is smart enough to know. He didn't like posthumous inductions and I -- but it's a story, it's a real story that he didn't write I just think there's a lot of reasons you would do it."

Lex Luger isn't the only former wrestler that people believe should be in the WWE Hall Of Fame. Mick Foley has recently campaigned for former WCW World Heavyweight Champion and IWGP Heavyweight Champion Vader to be honoured by WWE.
