“Ask Vince McMahon” – Former WWE Superstar on Why He Still Is Not in Hall of Fame

Published 07/14/2021, 1:00 PM EDT


The WWE Hall of Fame debuted in 1993 to honor legendary WWE Superstars who made the WWE great. Over time, it’s grown to include wrestlers who contributed to the industry regardless of whether they worked in the WWE.
The Hall of Fame now includes celebrities who have played an important role in the company as well. However, not every ex-WWE wrestler is fortunate enough to call themselves a Hall of Famer. Barry Horowitz is one of them.

“And I swear, this must be every other person. ‘Why aren’t you a coach? And how come you’re not in the Hall of Fame?’ Why aren’t I a coach? And why am I not in the Hall of Fame?

Will WWE induct Barry Horowitz after all this time?

To be renowned as a WWE legend, an all-time great, a Hall of Famer, one has to go above and beyond in the business. Wrestlers like Shawn Michaels, Ric Flair, and Hulk Hogan, just to name a few, are living legends. They have poured their heart and soul into the company for their fans, so it is only natural that they achieve the status of all-time greats.

Barry Horowitz arguably also did what others before him did. But apparently, Vince McMahon doesn’t feel the same or he would have been in the Hall of Famer already. Similar to Horowitz, there are still many ex-WWE wrestlers who haven’t received the prestigious title of a Hall of Famer.

Wrestlers such as D-Lo Brown, Finlay, among others have yet to be inducted. Who knows, maybe McMahon might change his mind in the future.
