We’ve received several from readers asking about Paul Bearer being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame this year as a posthumous inductee. We can confirm it was brought up when the news broke that he had died.
Bearer was well-liked and respected by everyone and I wouldn’t be surprised if a deal got done. Bearer spoke about his WWE legacy and a possible spot in the WWE Hall of Fame with Chris Yanek in January.
“I know that I will [be in the WWE Hall of Fame]. So that’s all I need to know. Whether it’s next year or whether it’s five years from now, I know the time’s coming. … I’ve been very, very blessed in professional wrestling because I’m just a Alabama kid, from the Alabama Gulf Coast that grew up watching local territory days wrestling. … I have been all around the world. I performed in all 50 states, 28 countries and I got a paycheck every week.”
