— SBNation has a lengthy interview with Shawn Michaels and Triple H promoting WrestleMania. In the interview, the topic of Bill Goldberg being inducted into the Hall of Fame is brought up.
“Bill’s trying to get into the Hall of Fame,” said Triple H. “If there’s a rumor about him coming back, he probably started it. I’ve not seen any mention of his name… We have a unique business, and we try to do a legitimate Hall of Fame. We try to honor the guys that deserve it. To the guys that go in, it’s something special. I heard Hogan s–t on it, but I don’t think anything’s special to him except for money. Like, if you called Michael Jordan to put him into the Basketball Hall of Fame, and he said, ‘All right, but I’m only gonna show up if I get to play for the Bulls next year.’ We get that all the time. We call a guy to honor him in the Hall of Fame, and he goes, ‘I want to do an angle. I want a one-off. I need a hundred grand.’ So when you say, ‘What about Goldberg?’, no offense to Bill, but you’ve got guys like Bruno San Martino that were legends with longevity that should be in there, but they’re holding out because they think they’ve got one more run. Just using Bill as an example, how many years did he wrestle? Not many.”
Shawn Michaels chimed in with his opinion as well, saying, “To me, he’s not even in the ball park. Not because he’s not talented, but greatness doesn’t happen in a few years. Greatness is established over a long period of time. We try to promote people and get them over, but you can’t do it that quickly. In our line of work, there are other qualities that make somebody viable besides just whether they’re tough or not. In every other line of work — like if you’re a lineman who can’t play, everybody knows you can’t play.”
