Bill Pritchard

Jerry Lawler says the next inductee has won gold throughout his career and has been known by many names, but he has always been known as 'Iron.' They show a highlight clip of Mike Tyson's boxing career and WWE highlights, then he introduces HHH and Shawn Michaels to do the induction. Shawn says Tyson was the one of the scariest guys to step in the ring, and HHH says Tyson helped WWE start winning the war against WCW.

HHH jokes about Tyson knocking Shawn out at Wrestlemania 14, and Shawn acts embarrassed and says that wasn't part of their plan. HHH says it would be stupid to make fun of Tyson, because he would come out there and knock someone out like he did at Wrestlemania. Shawn says he just wants to do the intro, and HHH says he might as well let him because Shawn is better at everything, then the fans start a 'Shawn is better' chant. Shawn calls him the 'baddest man on the planet', then HHH calls him the 'baddest Hall of Famer' and Tyson walks out with the Bella Twins. 

Tyson talks about watching Bruno Sammartino defend his title against guys like The Sheik, and he says it has been fun to watch and he wished he was part of it. He says he got arrested and Mr. Damato took him in, but he is still here, then he waives to his family and says he is glad they came to this one. Tyson says he would have lost everything if he didn't do Wrestlemania for the money, then he thanks the crowd and wishes them a good night.
