Chris Jericho spoke with the Mirror out of the United Kingdom about WWE finally inducting ”Macho Man” Randy Savage into their Hall of Fame.

Below is an excerpt:

"Well, absolutely it’s one of the guys that needed to go in there to make it a legitimate Hall of Fame," he exclusively told Mirror TV.

"They’ve done a great job over the last few years, putting in those last few guys like Bob Backlund, Bruno Sammartino, Bret Hart, and now Savage, those were the holdouts that needed to be in there to give that Hall some semblance of credibility.

"Now that Savage is going in, it’s kind of closing the book on the outstanding that needed to be in there - like the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame needs to put Deep Purple in there before I can ever take it seriously. Until they do, it’s kind of a joke to me. The fact Savage is finally going in is great.”

Richard Reacts: I completely agree with Chris. While he didn't mention Ultimate Warrior, that was another name that had to go in for it to be considered a legitimate Hall of Fame. WWE has done a good job in recent years in getting names in that need to be in.
