Jim Ross Gives His Thoughts On Lex Luger Not Being In WWE Hall Of Fame

Why isn’t Lex Luger in the WWE Hall of Fame?

Jim Ross weighed in on this subject during a recent installment of his “Grilling JR” podcast.

During the latest episode of the weekly program that the All Elite Wrestling commentator co-hosts with Conrad Thompson, “Good Ole’ J.R.” gave his thoughts on “The Total Package” not being part of the WWE Hall of Fame.

Featured below is an excerpt from the show where he touches on this particular topic.

“It’s some of those things we talked about. The embarrassment that he put on the company. I believe he will be. I believe Lex Luger will be in the WWE Hall of Fame. I think it’ll be a popular decision when it occurs because he’ll be allowed his two or three minutes he’s allocated, which we talked about before is ridiculous. Don’t induct so damn many people. Have a manageable number of people, so they have the appropriate time to tell their story. He’s got a hell of a story to tell. So, I believe Lex will be in the WWE Hall of Fame at some point in time. I think cooler heads will prevail, and he’ll be inducted. But I think it was the burning of the bridges and how he conducted himself on his exit contributed to him [not being in]. If you want a story – if they want to tell stories and a visual – here’s a guy that could be rolled onto the stage to tell his story. He’s in a wheelchair. If you’re looking for a story, this could be a great story and a story of success because Lex found true happiness in his faith. I think he’ll be in, and I think it’ll be a great induction. Some old wounds just don’t heal as quickly as others…..I just think there are a lot of reasons you would do it.”
