Jim Ross has high praise for his former broadcast partner Paul Heyman.
During a conversation with Conrad Thompson on the latest episode of his Grilling JR podcast. he discussed the possibility of Heyman being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame with Ross saying that Heyman is shoe-in for anybody’s Hall of Fame.
Any time is a good time for Paul Heyman to be inducted because he certainly earned those accolades. I have heard no talk about that. It’s an interesting question, and it certainly could happen. Heyman is Hall of Fame-bound. There’s no doubt about that. But I don’t know what the game plan is there. They seem to keep that the Hall of Fame thing kind of under wraps, which I think is great,” said JR, who went into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2007. “It’s just hard to say who’s gonna go where when you hear all these rumors, but Heyman deserves to go in anybody’s Hall of Fame.
On Heyman maybe being inducted in the 2024 class since WrestleMania 40 takes place in Philadelphia:
As far as Paul Heyman is concerned, he could go in any time, and it would work. So, fingers crossed for Paul. Hopefully, he gets in, and it’ll be a fun thing for him, and the audience in Philadelphia would be entertained. He’d have a great speech, so we will see how it all works out.
At a separate point in the podcast Ross gave his thoughts on the Brawl Out incident from 2022, and how he would have handled the situation if he was the head of talent relations like he was in WWE. You can read about that here.
