Does anybody know any reason Vince might not want to put him in? Or has it just never been the right time? Promote this thread!

Reason being is Bob thinks he has "one more run" and thinks the Hall Of Fame would only be appropriate if he was done for good. So he'll be in one day, it's up to him when. This was confirmed on one of the Legends Roundtables on 24/7.

For six years, midget to giant, nobody beat him! EXCEPT FOR THE IRON SHEIK! (edited by Trunzo on 9.2.10 0711)
My guess would be an error in judgment my the WWF. They probably expected the Iraq vs America sentiment to draw much greater than it did.
