While speaking on a recent edition of the “Busted Open Radio” podcast, Tommy Dreamer gave his thoughts on who should be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.
The Impact Wrestling Digital Media Champion named ECW co-founder Paul Heyman and ECW original Sabu. He said,
“Paul because he’s the greatest manager of all time. Statistically, I can prove that. He also created this thing called ECW, and it came a lot from his mind. He would listen to myself and others and he has a brilliant mind.” With WrestleMania 40 taking place in Philadelphia — the former home of ECW — there has been growing buzz about WWE acknowledging the company’s legacy at next year’s “Showcase of Immortals.” However, Dreamer argues that the location of the event shouldn’t be the reason for Heyman to get inducted. “Philadelphia is the easy tie-in, but if WrestleMania is in Montreal, Paul Heyman should [still] be eventually in the Hall of Fame.”
He continued, “And Sabu because the guy changed the industry. The whole using tables [in matches], what he did to his body for [the sake of] entertainment; he was such a different wrestler. He changed the industry and doesn’t get enough credit for changing the industry.”
