We get a clip of the other inductees not featured on the broadcast (Yokozuna, Mil Marascas, Ron Simmons) then Jerry Lawler leads us into a highlight clip for Edge. Christian says he knows the path that Edge took to the WWE better than anyone, and he says you can take him away from his home but he will always return. He plays a clip of Edge doing wrestling moves in their old grade school, and he says Edge sent that to him last month but now he probably regrets it. Christian says he can talk about Edge's career, but he knows how hard he worked because he wanted to make enough money to buy his mom a house. He says Edge's mom worked a bunch of jobs, and Edge just wanted to take care of his mom so she didn't have to worry anymore.
Christian introduces Edge to the crowd and they hug before Edge takes some pictures on his phone and the fans start a thank you chant. He references his new hair cut and tells them not to worry because it is him, then he says Christian is more than his friend and he respects his morals and being a good husband. Edge thanks Beth (Phoenix) for being in his life and he says he loves her, then Edge thanks him mom, who he calls the best tag team partner he could ask for.
Edge says he was proud to buy his mom a house, but seeing her face tonight was even better, then Edge thanks everyone and repeats a song lyric. He says he did what he wanted to do and now he is a Hall of Famer, then he thanks them again by playing a clip of him and Christian dressed as Elvis. Edge tells them to cut the music because he doesn't want anything formal, then the fans chant for a five second pose. He says this is a party and he wants to do it a little better so he calls for some rock music, and Foo Fighters' 'Walk' plays as the show comes to a close.
