Sting says 'it would have made sense' for Lex Luger or Hulk Hogan to induct him into the WWE Hall of Fame

He's totally fine with Ric Flair, but there could have been some other good choices to induct him, according to the man himself.

Sting, of course, was recently inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame the day before WrestleMania 32. He was inducted by two-time Hall of Famer Ric Flair and announced his retirement at the end of his induction speech.

While Flair is arguably Sting's most famous and storied rival and one of the few WCW legends that is still active with WWE and has made a separate legacy with his current employer, Sting may have had another choice for the person to induct him if it had been up to him. He explained in a recent interview with Sports Illustrated:

​The "Nature Boy" Ric Flair seemed like the natural fit to induct Sting into the Hall of Fame, because Flair, unlike Hulk Hogan and Lex Luger, is the WWE's lone legend with deep ties to the former face of WCW.

"It made sense to have Ric do it," said Sting. "But it would have made sense to have Lex Luger do it--we've friends [sic] for almost thirty years--or even Hulk [Hogan]."

Sting had a lot more to say about the Hall of Fame and WrestleMania, including once again insisting that his loss to Triple H didn't mean as much to him as the match itself. Head over to Sports Illustrated and check it out.
