Eric Bischoff was left speechless when he was told by Corey Graves that he will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame class of 2021 next month during WrestleMania week.
“Eric, after all these years and contributions you have made to the sports-entertainment industry, it is our honor and our pleasure to inform you that you, Eric Bischoff, will be inducted as a member of the 2021 class of the WWE Hall of Fame,” Graves told Bischoff as he looked on.
A visibly emotional Bischoff, who has seen it all in this business, could hardly speak. “Wow. Thank you. I don’t know quite what to say. Wow. That’s awesome,” he said, with his voice breaking down fighting tears.
With Graves telling Eric that they’ll give him a few minutes to process, Bischoff replied, “It will take more than a few minutes. Guys, this, wow, that’s all I got man. For a guy that can never shut the hell up on my own podcast, I don’t have anything to say. I’m just speechless.”
Truly an honor. Congrats @EBischoff!
