Booker T has commented that he would like to see Shane McMahon inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.
On February 18th it was announced that The Undertaker will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as part of the class of 2022.
This has naturally sparked speculation over which other Superstars deserve to take their place alongside the likes of Stone Cold Steve Austin, Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels and Hulk Hogan.
Speaking on his Hall of Fame podcast, Booker T, who was inducted in both 2013 and 2019, named a couple of former favourites he’d like to see receive the honour. Booker initially commented on Matt Borne, who was better known as Doink The Clown, being inducted.
“I’m not against that one bit, Matt Borne in himself was a hell of a worker and had a hell of a career, as well as Doink The Clown, it’s iconic. The original Doink The Clown, I loved it. So yeah, I would definitely give him the nod.”
Expanding further, the former World Champion said that Shane McMahon is also deserving of his own induction.
“I think so. I think Shane can be recognized as an in-ring performer as far as what he contributed to the business. Some of the feats that Shane McMahon has pulled off,” he said. “Just go back to talking about Kurt Angle and that over-the-top suplex through the glass. That one right there is something that totally sticks out in my mind. As well as him jumping off the tron, that one totally sticks out in my head, as well as off the cage. The guy has got Hall Of Fame moments.”
Despite it being heavily reported that Shane McMahon was “out” of WWE, it appears that he’s still working with the company in some capacity, at least for the moment.
Marco Masotti, who owns South African rugby team the Sharks, recently revealed on social media that he had met Shane McMahon to discuss a partnership with WWE. The post also included Doug Cifu who is the co-owner of NHL franchise the Florida Panthers.
