Chyna is one of the most important wrestlers to ever step foot in a WWE ring, and most fans are wondering when she will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. When that day comes, it looks like Mick Foley could be the one to induct her.
Although some fans would like to remember Chyna’s career in WWE in a controversial manner, most people fondly remember how Chyna dazzler and entertained them with her power and presence.
She was instrumental in helping women’s wrestling become what it is today, and because of her influence on the WWE, she is deserving of a Hall of Fame induction sooner rather than later. It’s all obviously up to Vince McMahon (and those related to him, to a certain extent), but I’d like to think that most people want to see Chyna honored.
Yesterday, Chyna’s Twitter account tweeted out a video of Mick Foley as “Mankind” helping Chyna defeat Triple H, with the tweet asking if Foley could induct Chyna into the HOF one day.
This morning, Foley responded that he would be “honored” to induct Chyna if the situation arose and he were asked to deliver the speech.
Count me in as someone who would absolutely love to see this. Chyna and Foley are two of my favorite wrestlers of all-time, and I couldn’t think of many people who would give a better speech about Chyna’s career than Foley. His ability to tell stories and talk about human emotions would also make his speech about Chyna’s career quite an impactful one.
Chyna was a one-time WWF Women’s Champion and a two-time Intercontinental Champion. She defeated Jeff Jarrett and Chris Jericho for those two reigns, meaning she defeated two of the greatest IC Champions of all-time for that belt. Jarrett, of course, was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2018, and that might be another indication that Chyna’s induction can’t be too far away despite the politics involved.
After all, it was “Stone Cold” Steve Austin who stated that Chyna deserved to go into the HOF while she was still alive. Hopefully WWE will honor her career soon enough, even if she didn’t get to give a speech at the HOF herself.
