WWE Hall of Fame 2024: Paul Heyman inducted by Roman Reigns

Paul Heyman was the first inductee into the WWE Hall of Fame 2024 class. Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns was the one to induct him into the prestigious club. Roman came straight to the point and revealed the things that Heyman taught him. It was also revealed that The Tribal Chief moniker was innovated by his Wise Man and he’ll drop this character if Heyman ever goes away.

Heyman came out to the ring in a round of applause greeted by his former ECW pals Rob Van Dam, Tommy Dreamer, and Bubba Ray Dudley. “It’s time for Stephanie to admit she married the wrong Paul,” was Heyman’s first punchline to Stephanie McMahon.

Putting over Triple H for all his works, Heyman talked about how ECW changed the game in the 90s. Heyman also mentioned Brock Lesnar in his full gimmick voice, multiple times, while talking about conquering The Undertaker’s Streak 10 years ago to end his WWE Hall of Fame 2024 speech.
