Vader addressed the subject in a 2014 interview with WrestlingInc.com.
There's been mention and talk, and, you just never know. It's a very tough club to get in to. I don't know. I guess that's my answer, I don't know. I hope so. I think I've earned it. I think that my representation from Europe, you know, from the AWA to Europe, I had three World titles and an Intercontinental title over there in Europe, the largest wrestling company in Europe, a legitimate, recognized world title at the time, the CWA, three of those and an Intercontinental over there, and then coming back to Mexico, I had three World titles down there, and three with the WCW and the United States title. In Japan I just blew it up over there, twelve tag titles, and Intercontinental titles, World titles. I think a lot of stuff that I've done has been historic, I mean the match with Inoki... I mean they had to shove an eye back in my face and keep wrestling. That's just crazy, in front of eighty-thousand people, it never crossed my mind to stop, I just instinctively just did it. And I think back and I go "Wow, why didn't I just stop and we could reschedule this thing, skip a few months and get well." You know, I think so.
It's a big deal, let's face it, WWE, to me… I've been to so many award banquets, All-American this, All-American banquet here, the All-American teams and the All-Conference teams and all these award banquets… to me, that would be, as much as I love football, and even my Super-Bowl ring, this would be the most meaningful thing in my life. I hope it happens. If it doesn't, I'll be disappointed, but life goes on. I think I've earned it, I really do. I don't think you can argue with my accomplishments and just the matches, the work.
