Paul Heyman Comments On Eric Bischoff's WWE Hall Of Fame Induction
The two were at war over 20 years ago
Paul Heyman has congratulated his former rival, Eric Bischoff, on his induction into the WWE Hall Of Fame as a part of the Class Of 2021.
Bischoff was confirmed as the second entrant into this year's Hall Of Fame, alongside Molly Holly, last week.
The former WCW executive producer was often at war with Paul Heyman, then running ECW, and Heyman has spoken about Bischoff's induction, saying the honour has been well earned by the first-ever Raw general manager.
Speaking on Talking Smack, Heyman said: "I presume this will surprise a lot of people. I don’t think the WWE Hall of Fame is complete without Eric Bischoff. This is an honor that is long overdue, and it’s well earned. It’s most deserved.
"The criteria to be in the WWE Hall of Fame is impact upon the industry. It would be very hard for anyone to argue that Eric Bischoff did not make as significant of an impact on this industry as almost anybody in its history.
"I respect the WWE for having the intelligence and for understanding just how much Eric Bischoff belongs in the Hall of Fame. I profoundly congratulate my old rival, Eric Bischoff, for his induction into the WWE Hall of Fame, Class of 2021."
