"There's been a lot of guys go in that belong there, and...there are some who shouldn't be in there, but who the hell am I? Hell, I'm not in there, so what the hell. Maybe someday when they put some more guys in there, maybe I'll go in. I would love to go in, not so much for me, but for my kids, man. It's part of my legacy. I put so much into wrestling; 37 years of it. Why I'm not there, I'm sure somebody's got a reason."
He also addressed WWE possibly being scared to take a chance on him...
"I don't think it's the past. I think it's just me, period, because of what I believe in... I'm a team player because I want the product better, but… my nose doesn't fit well up anybody's butt."
