Paul Heyman Reacts To WWE Inducting Eric Bischoff Into The Hall Of Fame

What does Paul Heyman think of Eric Bischoff being announced as one of the inductees for this year’s class at the WWE Hall Of Fame?

Who better to ask than the “Evil Genius” himself?

During today’s installment of Talking Smack, the special counsel to WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns gave his in-depth reaction to the news that Eric Bischoff is being inducted into this year’s WWE Hall Of Fame class.

Featured below are some of the highlights from his appearance on the show.

On Eric Bischoff being inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame this year: “Eric Bischoff in the WWE Hall of Fame. 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 criterion to be in the WWE Hall of Fame is impact upon the industry, and it would be very hard for anyone to argue that Eric Bischoff did not make as significant an impact on this industry as almost anybody else in its history. I respect WWE for having the intelligence and for understanding just how much Eric Bischoff belongs in the Hall of Fame. I congratulate, profoundly congratulate my old rival, Eric Bischoff, for his induction into the WWE Hall of Fame class 2021.”

On him being the only man left standing on TV every week out of the top three promoters in the business from the 1990s: “I would like to add, however, that if you look back in history, and I don’t do that often, that the 1990s in this industry were ruled by Eric Bischoff, Paul Heyman, and Vincent Kennedy McMahon. Only one of us is still relevant enough to be on television each and every week. On top. In the main event of WrestleMania with the biggest star in the industry, the champ, Roman Reigns.”
