On the latest episode of his “What Happened When” podcast, AEW commentator Tony Schiavone recalled working with Lance Russell on WCW commentary and declared that Russell deserves a spot in the WWE Hall Of Fame.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:


On working with Lance Russell: “I love Lance Russell. You know, I did get a chance to work with Lance in WCW. Lance was a really intelligent wonderful man, he was. And I remember listening to some of his older stuff. I didn’t listen to much of it. But back in the day and everything, everything I listened to. I just loved what he did.”

On his belief that Lance should be in the WWE Hall of Fame: “It goes back to this Hall of Fame thing We talk about is he in the WWE Hall of Fame? [No] So when you and I have talked about a lot. What do you think about the WWE Hall of Fame? There’s a reason why I think I should never be in it. Because Lance Russell, Bob Cottle and many of the guys who have been regional announcers before should be in there long before I should ever be in there. And if they are not there, then I scream cream bulls**t.”
