Ray made an appearance on the Wrestling Epicenter where he spoke about the criticism from fans about the induction. For Ray, he thinks this honor means that talent has left a mark in wrestling and people would always remember it.
“Yeah, man! It is cool. But, you know, people were always bothering me about the Hall of Fame and I never really had thought about it,” said Stevie Ray. “I always thought that the Hall of Fame meant that you left a mark in wrestling and people would always remember it and I never thought… You know, it was in the back of my mind. But it is cool that it happened and hey, Harlem Heat is in the Hall of Fame!”
Regarding the fan criticism, he doesn’t care what people say because he knows the type of impact that they left on the business.
“You know, I could give two sh*ts what people say. We went into the Hall of Fame as a tag team. We went into the Hall of Fame as a record-breaking tag team! We went into the Hall of Fame as a tag team that brought tag team wrestling back as it was dormant at the time. We went in as a tag team that actually got ratings – our ratings were very high back in the 90s and they know what the people liked. So, anyone that does not understand that can suck my d***. Anyone that doesn’t understand that can kiss my black a**.”
