Former WCW World Heavyweight Champion Teases Hall of Fame Induction?


Late Sunday night on Twitter, two-time WCW World Heavyweight Champion and former WWE Superstar Vader appeared to teased himself as an inductee into the WWE Hall of Fame by tweeting its logo.

Vader addressed the subject in a 2014 interview.

There’s been mention and talk, and, you just never know. It’s a very tough club to get in to. I don’t know. I guess that’s my answer, I don’t know. I hope so. I think I’ve earned it. I think that my representation from Europe, you know, from the AWA to Europe, I had three World titles and an Intercontinental title over there in Europe, the largest wrestling company in Europe, a legitimate, recognized world title at the time, the CWA, three of those and an Intercontinental over there, and then coming back to Mexico, I had three World titles down there, and three with the WCW and the United States title. In Japan I just blew it up over there, twelve tag titles, and Intercontinental titles, World titles. I think a lot of stuff that I’ve done has been historic, I mean the match with Inoki… I mean they had to shove an eye back in my face and keep wrestling. That’s just crazy, in front of eighty-thousand people, it never crossed my mind to stop, I just instinctively just did it. And I think back and I go “Wow, why didn’t I just stop and we could reschedule this thing, skip a few months and get well.” You know, I think so.

It’s a big deal, let’s face it, WWE, to me… I’ve been to so many award banquets, All-American this, All-American banquet here, the All-American teams and the All-Conference teams and all these award banquets… to me, that would be, as much as I love football, and even my Super-Bowl ring, this would be the most meaningful thing in my life. I hope it happens. If it doesn’t, I’ll be disappointed, but life goes on. I think I’ve earned it, I really do. I don’t think you can argue with my accomplishments and just the matches, the work.
