WWE News: Drew Carey Undeserving of WWE Hall of Fame Induction
WWE News finds Drew Carey’s induction suspicious but understandable
The wrestling community is a tough cookie to crack. It’s an exclusive club. Either you belong or you don’t.
Drew Carey doesn’t belong. The famed comedian and the current host of The Price is Right was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame over the weekend with such greats as The Road Warriors and Shawn Michaels.
This, of course, has drawn a lot of heat from the community because as it should be the Hall of Fame is hallowed ground regardless of the sport. Drew Carey made his claim to fame in the WWE as being a novelty entrant into the Royal Rumble.
While this was certainly a memorable moment, it wasn’t as if Drew Carey deserved to be immortalized for more than just that one brief moment.
Still, the WWE has motives for their Hall of Fame and that influences their decision.
Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com has some very good insight into Carey’s induction and why wrestling fans, like it or not, should just accept the nature of the honor.
I know a lot of fans were griping about Drew Carey, but for every name like that (and Carey was a promotional tie-in for his GSN game show, nothing more), WWE brings in names like Bob Armstrong and Abdullah the Butcher, just because they can. You have to take the good with the bad and WWE has given us a lot of good names that historically, they didn't need to honor. So, I'll take a Drew Carey if it means Gordon Solie and Eddie Graham and The Sheik get remembered as well.
The WWE needs mainstream publicity wherever they can get it. Putting Drew Carey in the Hall means nothing. It’s the catalyst to putting the older guys in.
If that’s the trade off I’ll take it.
