Thanks to Joe for sending this in:
I just returned from the HoF and I thought I'd give a quick rundown. (Note: every inductee received a standing ovation)
1. Ron Simmons gets inducted
Notes: JBL had the best 'inductor speech' of the night. He had no papers, had great stories and made you feel like you've been a fan of Simmons for his entire career.
Simmons speech was nice. Had some funny moments and ended with the expected 'DAMN!"
2. Mil Mascares gets inducted
Notes: Del Rio got a really good pop from the crowd and he seemed genuinely happy if not surprised by it. He didn't say a whole lot to build up his Uncle though.
Mil Mascares lost the crowd. Not really to his fault. Not many are familiar with him and it's clear English isn't his first language.
3. 4 Horsemen get inducted
Notes: Dusty did his typical preacher spiel. He was the first inductor to get a standing ovation.
Flair seemed really excited and had some stories from when they were together.
4. Tyson gets inducted
Notes: HBK and HHH have a funny intro for him going into DX mode with their humor.
Tyson was a train wreck however. He couldn't stay on one topic. Going from always loving WWE, to loving his family, to saying how Cena and Dusty act black (in a funny way). Then his ring slipped and fell off him, he laughed and left. Just a really strange speech that I have no doubt, will not make it on tv.
5. Yokozuna gets inducted.
Notes: Usos induct him and Rikishi along with Yoko's mother as well as I think the Wild Samoans were up there too.
It was a nice induction. Rikishi is a good speaker and helped promote how, while a monster with his character, Rodney was an amazing man who the family loved.
6. Edge gets inducted
Notes: Christian had great memories of him and got choked up a lot.
In the crowd were Lita, Rhino, and Lance Storm
It was a great show and Mania tomorrow should be electric.
