Paul Heyman Explains Why He Previously Declined A WWE Hall Of Fame Induction

As previously reported, longtime WWE personality and former ECW executive Paul Heyman has been officially announced for the 2024 WWE Hall of Fame in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

During an interview with TMZ, Heyman explained why he had previously refused to be inducted into WWE’s Hall of Fame.

“Well, I mean, imagine it this way, if I had accepted the award while I was The Advocate for Brock Lesnar and none of my work with Roman Reigns and The Bloodline was part of my Hall of Fame induction, then by now, we’d be sitting there saying, ‘Oh, how did we induct him five years ago and missed this whole chapter of his career.’”

“So, you know, the only thing that gives me pause this year is that Roman Reigns and I are not going anywhere. We plan on sticking around. He will continue to be the reigning defending Undisputed WWE Universal Heavyweight Champion in the greatest title run of all time and the part of the industry that we are viewing to disrupt now, which would be a disruption of the disruption that we started in August 2020.”
