WWE Hall of Fame ceremony - on Spike 04/02/05

The only inductions that were shown were for Roddy Piper and Hulk Hogan. The other inductees were already on stage, they'll probably be shown as extras on the WM21 DVD. Paul Orndorff looked pissed for some reason.

Ric Flair introduced Piper. Flair rambled on and no one knew what the heck he was talking about. He went into some long story about how Nasty Boy Brian Knobs got phlebitis from trying to put Piper "to bed". I'm guessing that means something like drink him under the table. At least, that's what I hope it means. Piper also drifted a bit as usual, but was surprisingly lucid. He joked about HBO and drug use.

Sylvester Stallone introduced Hogan, talking about how Hogan was slaughtering stuntmen during Rocky III. The fans cheered for about ten straight minutes when Hogan came out. They chanted "Ho-gan", "Thank you, Hogan" and "One More Match" several times. I even heard a "Hogan-Austin" chant try to get started. Hogan was visibly moved as he spoke. He only went about five minutes, just like his matches.

I was surprised that they only broadcast Piper/Hogan getting their awards.

Well, surprised/disappointed.

The WWE website has a list of who inducted each of the wrestlers. I would have liked to have seen the whole thing too.

I was also surprised and kind of disappointed they only did Piper and Hogan. But they'll probably have clips of it down the road...

Piper was awsome, hasn't missed a beat... The man's an absolute genius!

I was flipping around and caught this last night. I forgot how great Piper was, the guy really didn't miss a beat. I loved the "big vitamin" line.

I wonder what Mr. Wonderful was so pissed about? He looked as if he was mad at the world.

From an interview with him that I read a few months ago, I think he may be nuts. He sure seemed like it.
