When asked why the "Macho Man" isn't in the Hall, he responded, "Are you telling me that the WWE hadn't made an overture to Randy about being in the Hall of Fame? That's BS. They asked him many times and he declined. For whatever reason, that's what I'm still trying to figure out."
Okerlund also gave his thoughts on Savage's rival Ultimate Warrior.
"He did have a look, that's about as far as it goes. He couldn't talk, he sure as hell couldn't work in the ring, that was very marginal. I think one of the worst matches I've seen in my life was between Warrior and Papa Shango. What a disaster of monumental proportions," he said.
Okerlund also explained how WWE's pay-per-view frequency has changed the promotion.
"I personally think we have way too many pay-per-views," he says. "I don't think we get the chance to adequately develop the storylines with the guys and gals between pay per views. I'd like to see us down to about eight pay per views a year."
Okerlund also discussed joining WCW in 1993, Roddy Piper not being given enough credit for WrestleMania, hating an angle Vince Russo scripted him and more. You can listen to the full episode at insidetheropes.podbean.com, and check out facebook.com/theinsidenetwork for upcoming shows and guests.
