Jim Ross Blogs About HOF: If Flair Will Be There, Savage, Ole, Edge Inducted Too Early?
Source: JR's BBQJim Ross is back with his latest blog, here are some highlights:
If Edge is being inducted too early: "Not in my view. I don't know that a waiting period even exists, I'd suggest there is none, for going into the WWE HOF after retirement. It certainly didn't apply to the King and I who both went in the HOF in 2007 while both still active. Edge is extremely deserving and when one examines his total body of work, it is incredible."
Why Ole Anderson was omitted from the Horsemen being inducted: "I do not know what the future may hold for this particular induction. I didn't even know the Horsemen were going to be inducted until I heard it on Raw. Ole has been in poor health and there's a chance that he couldn't attend nor would he want to based on comments that he has made in the past. Nonetheless, Ole Anderson's contributions to the Four Horsemen were invaluable and shouldn't be forgotten."
If Ric Flair will attend the HOF Ceremony to join the Horsemen: "Absolutely. I'd bet on it. This is merely my personal opinion but knowing Naitch as well and for as long as I have, I don't see him missing this night no matter if he works elsewhere or not."
Randy Savage not being inducted: "Amazingly, when Edge and the Horsemen were introduced being 2012 WWE HOF inductees, we got a ton of Tweets from fans who, for some crazy reason, felt that these two announcements represented the entire class. I don't know how many total inductees will be announced but it's generally around 6-8 if memory serves me correctly. Oh, yeah the Horsemen would count as one. As usual, Macho Man is an emotional and deserving selection and, as usual, I'm not sure when he will be honored. Yeah, I know, it's past due."
