It’s part of his thing. There are certain wrestlers who become popular with the fans for one reason or another, but in some cases their popularity rises after they hang up their boots. It can be rather interesting to see what a wrestler comes up once their career is over. This is certainly true with a former WWE star, who now thinks that his gimmick has been stolen by someone who came along later.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: BREAKING: WWE Possibly NXT Women’s Title, New Champion To Be Crowned

Former WWE star Virgil has taken to Instagram, announcing that he has been inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame. He thanked his favorite opponents in the business, including names such as Andre the Giant, Randy Savage and Bret Hart, along with the “million dollar dandy El Dandy”. Finally, Virgil thanked Damage CTRL for allowing him to be their hero and accused the Miz of stealing his gimmick. There is nothing to suggest that WWE has inducted Virgil into the Hall Of Fame.

Virgil is one of the more unique stars you’ll ever see. Check out some of his career, including out of the ring:

Opinion: Virgil is one of the most entertaining stars that you’ll ever see because he knows how to stick with something. Everyone knows that his stories are all over the place and that is what makes them so entertaining. It’s not about the stories making sense or being based in reality, but rather sticking with them no matter what. This is the case again, and hopefully Miz gets a chuckle out of being included in the latest gag.
