Triple H Addresses Chyna’s Hall of Fame Spot


During the Stone Cold Steve Austin Podcast interview with Triple H, the topic of Chyna being in the Hall of Fame came up. When asked if former WWE women’s wrestler Chyna deserved a spot in the WWE’s Hall of Fame, Triple H responded as such; “Does she deserve to go into the Hall Of Fame? Absolutely.”

“Well, it is a little bit like a double-sided sword. It’s not just as easy as, “Should this person go into the Hall of Fame?” She completely, 100% transcended the business. Changed the business. Paradigm shifter of the business. Did what no woman ever did before, and was awesome at it, and a phenomenal talent. All the other stuff that happened happened — and I don’t need to get into any of the other stuff — but there’s no beef on this side with anything, and I mean that 100%.

From a career standpoint, should she be in the Hall of Fame? Absolutely. It’s a bit difficult, though, and this is the flipside of the coin — and this is the side nobody looks at — I’ve got an eight-year-old kid, and my eight-year-old kid sees Hall of Fame, and my eight-year-old kid goes on the Internet to look at Chyna. What comes up? And I’m not criticizing anybody. I’m not criticizing lifestyle choices. Everybody has their reasons. I don’t know what they were. I don’t care to know. It’s not a morality thing or anything else. It is just the fact of what it is. That’s a difficult choice.”


EN: In pure speculation, it could be argued that these paradigms also apply to Chris Benoit, infamous for instigating a double-murder-suicide in the Summer of 2007, which changed the face of the WWE as a result of his actions. Should the WWE ever decide to adhere to their policy of “never say never”, and induct the former champion into their Hall of Fame, what’s to stop the eight year old children from inevitably researching the man to find the news that he murdered his family, and himself, in the span of a weekend?

It’s not too far from the imagination to assume that this is a general policy for the Hall of Fame itself; personal choices affect the eligibility of an induction for certain superstars. Which, of course, fails to explain why convicted rapist Mike Tyson is in the Hall of Fame, despite his past actions.
