Terri Runnels says Chyna should be in the WWE Hall of Fame

Apr 15, 2018 - by Steve Gerweck

“Without a doubt. Absolutely. Why wouldn’t she be? I can’t really give you that answer. I’m not in the office and I can’t give you that answer, but I know that there is a lot of emotions that are tied in with her, and we know the story of the different relationships and how they ended up happening, but you know, I think Joanie is one of those people, no matter where you live in the world, she is one of the women in the world you have heard of. I know that Dustin Rhodes was very good with working with her. In the beginning, I know some of the guys didn’t want to work with her because they thought it would look bad if they worked with a female, but I’m proud of Dustin for being front and center and was willing to work with her immediately.”

    If WWE decides to induct a woman from New York next year then they can give Chyna her long overdue induction.

    Also, next year on October 17th is the 20th anniversary of The Good Housekeeping match from 1999 where Chyna beat Jarrett for the Intercontinental Championship.

    But with WWE not wanting to induct more than 1 deceased person a year (excluding the Legacy Wing) WWE might induct Dawn Marie Psaltis (Dawn Marie 2) from New Jersey instead as their female inductee if WWE decides to induct Bam Bam Bigelow in 2019.

    I doubt we’ll ever see dawn marie in the hof. Such a random choice too. If any woman deserves it, it’s chyna

  4. Disgruntled Jobber says:

    They already said why they won’t put Chyna in the Hall. On Stone Cold’s podcast, Levesque, in perhaps the most moronic statement not said by Glen Gillberti, said “People could google her and find out what she did.” meaning porn.

    The WWE inducted Snuka even though they knew of his alleged involvement in a woman’s murder. Inducted people like Trump and Kid Rock despite shady details in their past. Inducted Duggan despite his legendary drug bust.

    We all know the real reason is they black balled her, bottom line. So we can hope they’ll induct her, but it will never happen.
