Former WWE star Torrie Wilson is the latest inductee announced for this year’s WWE Hall of Fame class.
She joins The Honky Tonk Man and DX (X-Pac, Triple H, Shawn Michaels, Billy Gunn, Road Dogg, and Chyna). This year’s ceremony will take place on April 6, 2019 from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, which is the same weekend as WrestleMania 35.
Wilson was recently interviewed by Busted Open Radio and during the interview, she talked about fans who are criticizing WWE’s decision to put her in the Hall of Fame.
“I think some of the people that are angry are the same people that are forgetting that this is an entertainment show. I was not calling the shots backstage going, ‘Hey Vince, can I please wrestle in a bikini tonight?’ I actually was out there with Fit Finlay going, ‘OK, what’s the most athletic match I can put together with a bikini on?”
Wilson would continue by stating that when she got off the phone with a WWE executive, she started making a list of things that she never achieved in the WWE which includes being a champion. However, she won’t let negative people get to her.
“I could do much better than my haters about beating myself up. Then I had to put myself in check but there are a lot of things that I am. I’m not Charlotte Flair, I’m not jumping off ladders, but I am Torrie Wilson and I did have something to bring to the table. I think for most people, we are just too quick to start looking at the negatives and losing focus on what we can bring to the table.”
