Earl Hebner Says He Thinks He Deserves To Be In The WWE Hall Of Fame

Former long-time WWE referee Earl Hebner recently made an appearance on the Refin' It Up podcast with Brian Hebner to talk about a number of topics such as how he thinks he deserves to be in the WWE Hall of Fame, but whether or not he gets inducted is up to the WWE.

Earl Hebner said:

“Yea, I would consider it. "All the stuff that I've done in this business and made a lot of the matches what they are. I think I deserve to be in there. But whether I do or not, it's up to them.”

Earl Hebner also talked about how it it weren't for pro wrestling legend Dusty Rhodes he would not be in the pro wrestling business and how Tommy Young was one of the greatest referees in history as well as how Tommy taught him to be a good referee and Dusty gave me the opportunity to be a good referee.

Earl Hebner said:

"Dusty means everything to me, because if it weren't for him, I wouldn't be in business. Tommy Young was one of the greatest referees that has ever been in the history of this business. Tommy is the one that taught me to be a good ref and Dusty gave me the opportunity to be a good ref. I guess the way he kept me and gave me the go ahead sign on matches and shit like that. He was great. I owe him everything."

Earl Hebner then talked about what being inducted into the TNA Hall of Fame means to him.

Earl Hebner said:

“It meant everything in the world to me in this business. I never thought I would ever get there, in any Hall of Fame, but I did. I was so happy that they recognized how valuable I was. They still have referees that are valuable, but they sort of broke the ice in knowing that in order for this business to succeed, they have to have a good ref. It's good that they noticed that and gave me the opportunity to be in the Hall of Fame, and I will never forget that night or what they did for me."
