Triple H Comments on Selection Process for WWE’s Hall of Fame

A recent episode of the Pardon My Take podcast had Triple H as the guest. One of the topics discussed included WWE’s selection process for their Hall of Fame and Vince McMahon being in charge of deciding who gets to be inducted each year.
