Jazz Comments on WWE Hall of Fame Induction Being Remaining Accolade for Her Career

A recent episode of the Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling podcast had Jazz as the guest. One of the topics discussed included Jazz’s thoughts on an induction into WWE’s Hall of Fame being the remaining accolade to get for her career.

“I just turned 49, so, and I figured it’s nothing really left for me to do. I’ve accomplished almost any and everything that I could ever want in this business. Only thing left for me is the WWE Hall Of Fame, and if that happens, yes and if it don’t, I’m good. I’ve still had a great career. I’ve made a great living off this business. Has it been tough? You damn right it’s been tough but, I did it.”
