Paul Heyman was recently interviewed by 101 WRIF in Detroit, MI to promote Monday’s episode of RAW in the city and commented on his history working with “Stone Cold” Steve Austin and The Undertaker.
During the interview, Heyman was asked about going into the WWE Hall of Fame someday and revealed that he’s not interested in doing so. Heyman said,
“I have absolutely no desire to go into the Hall of Fame”.
You can check out some additional highlights from the interview below:
On his history with Steve Austin and Undertaker: “First of all, Stone Cold Steve Austin was managed by me in WCW before he came to WWE. In between WCW and WWE, Steve Austin stopped off in ECW, which I owned at the time. So I’ve known Steve Austin for over 30 years and I’m very proud of him and I thought it was very smart for him to wrestle his last match instead of stepping up and trying one more run against The Tribal Chief, Roman Reigns.
“As for the Undertaker. I’ve managed him as well in WCW. As he has revealed in the past few weeks during some interviews, I was one of the people that facilitated his move to WWE and to become The Undertaker, and I also applaud his decision to enter the Hall of Fame, signifying the end of The Undertaker’s career, before he got itchy, and decided to step up one more time against The Tribal Chief, to get smashed, the same way Brock Lesnar did at WrestleMania this past Sunday. So I have enjoyed both Austin and Undertaker’s final bow, and I encourage others to take final vows before they step into the ring with Roman Reigns and get hurt.”
On a possible Hall of Fame induction: “Yeah, I have absolutely no desire to go into the Hall of Fame. Well, I am the ‘Special Counsel’ to ‘The Tribal Chief’ Roman Reigns. I’m putting together a Hall of Fame run simply based on what we do as The Undisputed Champion right now, let alone everything else that has been accomplished beforehand. So while we’re in the middle of this run, it would make no sense for me to go into the Hall of Fame.”
