Paul Heyman: I Have No Desire To Be Inducted Into The WWE Hall Of Fame Right Now

Paul Heyman isn't interested in any accolades while he's building his resume.

Paul Heyman is, undoubtedly, a WWE Hall of Fame-level talent. He has a WWE resume that sees him having managed five WWE Champions and a track record of helping promote talent that includes Steve Austin, Undertaker, Rey Mysterio, Sabu, and more.

Currently managing -- or serving as a Special Counsel, to Roman Reigns, Paul Heyman reflected on his history with Undertaker and Steve Austin as they each had a final farewell during WrestleMania 38 weekend.

"First of all, Stone Cold Steve Austin was managed by me in WCW before he came to WWE," said Heyman to 101 WRIF. "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," he continued. "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."

As for his own Hall of Fame legacy, Paul Heyman is too focused on the now to worry about retiring into the WWE Hall of Fame.

"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," Paul explained.

For the time being, Paul Heyman is enjoying his run at the side of Roman Reigns and he recently signed a new agreement with WWE, keeping him in the fold for years to come. Learn more here.
