Wrestling legend Jazz isn’t sure if she will ever go into the WWE Hall of Fame one day. However, if she were to be inducted there are a couple things she would like to be done when that time comes.
When referring to women of WWE during the early 2000s one cannot speak on that time period without mentioning Jazz. She is just as iconic of a name as current Hall of Famers, Trish Stratus, Lita, and Molly Holly.
Jazz recently spoke with The Angle Podcast in regards to the thought of ever being inducted. She made two important points to her answer.
The first is she wants it to be done while she is living. She doesn’t want it to be done posthumous, give her her flowers while she can celebrate the moment with her family. And the second is she would love to be inducted by Paul Heyman.
“Me being a Hall of Famer for WWE, I don’t know. I mean I don’t know if that will ever happen. I just want to say this. If it’s ever going to happen, do it while I’m alive. Don’t wait until I’m dead and gone. I would like to be there and share that moment with my kids. Don’t bring my kids up on the stage with tears in their eyes wishing their mom was there to receive this. Give me my flowers while I live. Don’t let me die and be forgotten about and then oh yea here. If it were to happen, I would love to be inducted by Paul Heyman.”
Heyman and Jazz go back to the days of ECW, so her being inducted by Heyman would certainly be a full circle moment in her career. She recently wrapped up some time with IMPACT Wrestling and has stated that she is doing a final tour of the indies this year before retiring.
While speaking on her run with IMPACT, Jazz had the following to say and had big praise for the Knockouts Champion Deonna Purrazzo.
“There was no timetable [for her IMPACT run] and it went longer than what I thought. I wasn’t expecting a 4,5, or 6-month run. I was thinking maybe 3 appearances or something and bam they took me out real quick, but they hung in there with me. I’m so grateful for it. I knew myself that I was not the Jazz that everyone was used to seeing and I was a little stressed out thinking about how the fans would react. I’ve had a great career! And that’s just my in-ring performance that I’m retired from. Behind the scenes I’m still going strong!”
“I was excited about it. I love Deonna’s work. She is one of the best out here right now. If there’s someone that I’m passing the torch onto it couldn’t have been a better person than Deonna. She’s so well deserving of that. She’s a great champion and has a great mind for the business. She loves the business. I love everything about her.”
