When longtime professional wrestler Scott Steiner was hospitalized on Friday night, there were many fans that examined his career and wondered if he was in the WWE Hall of Fame. He has been active for roughly four decades, and believe he is deserving of the honor. However, Steiner doesn't actually care.

"Can you go someplace and say that it is legit when it doesn't exist? How can you say it is legit? It defies all odds," Steiner said during the conversation. "You cannot have a Hall of Fame if you cannot visit. It is the creation of someone's mind. It boggles my mind that people care about being in the Hall of Fame when it doesn't even exist."
To further his point, Steiner compared the WWE's Hall of Fame experience to going to a grocery store and finding out that there is no food available. In his mind, this just means that the entire thing is a joke.

Steiner may not care about the Hall of Fame, but the fans would like to see him given the honor. Although they would simply prefer for him to get back to full health following his hospitalization.
