Raven Thinks Backstage Politics Will Stop Him From Being Inducted Into WWE Hall Of Fame
Will Raven ever be inducted into the WWE HOF?
Raven was recently inducted into the IMPACT Wrestling Hall of Fame, with the former NWA/TNA Heavyweight Champion inducted into the HOF by long-time rival Tommy Dreamer.
However, the cult figure doesn’t believe he will ever be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, with Raven saying the following during a virtual signing with K&S Wrestlefest:
"I would've liked to have been world champion in New York [WWE]. But you know, that's a hell of a lot of politics,” said Raven, before explaining that the same ‘politics’ will possibly scupper his chances of going in the HOF.
"A lot of the heat's my fault though because I had to be the smartest guy in the room,” Raven continued. "Even if I wasn't, I had to act like I was so I burned my own bridges. I knew it back then but couldn't help it."
Regarded as one of the great minds of modern wrestling, Raven was a multi-time champion across ECW, WCW, and WWE, and was the first wrestler to have an action figure of himself from all three companies, as well as TNA.
