It wasn't a bad show, though I would have liked to have seen footage of the rest of the ceremony. I was kind of disappointed to find out it was all Piper and Hogan. Never been a Hogan fan but the ovation was pretty cool.

Anyway, as soon as I saw Ron Simmons in the crowd I expected to start hearing rumours about him interfering to help JBL keep the belt but so far I haven't seen anything. It was kind of funny seeing Big Show cry...I'm guessing he must be sad because his father, Andre the Giant, wasn't able to induct Hogan or something...

    Actually, I remember reading that doing the film actually got Hogan fired from WWE by McMahon. Not to start a big debate about it or anything, and I understand the reasons why completely. Just something to think about.



McMahon Sr. fired him. I believe it was Rocky 3 that actually got McMahon Jr. very much behind the idea of re-hiring the guy (now that he was in charge and not his dad) and letting him be the face of the company. Technically, it's when Hulkamania for the WWF really got started.

Stallone may not be a wrestling figure, but since everyone who could induct him was already either doing an induction or being inducted themselves, I suppose a star like Stallone is fitting given the circumstances. If it had been a McMahon, it would have seen less special.

Piper was this years Heenan, in that he stole the show with his humor. Very suprising to see him look so much better than he was two years ago. It was nice to see Flair inducting him too...maybe I missed the induction announcements(outside of Stallone) but I surprised to see that they went with who most of the internet predicted. As I feel there's no one's more deserving of those types of ovations than Hogan, it was great to see. "Thank you Hogan" was great...and I concurred. Even HHH seemed to be genuinely enthused for him...I thought they were on bad terms. Really wished to see the other inductions, but I guess thats what the DVD is for. Pretty good show.

The ovation for Hogan, may be one of those things that I will always remember....one of the reasons I love wrestling. Not even a big Hogan fan...but the love the audience showed for the Icon of wrestling...was just insane. Big Show crying was something I thought I'd never see...

Piper looked good as well...and I also wish this was something they devoted more time too...I'd have loved to see the entire show.

I didn't care for the Hogan speech, and it looked as though his son didn't want to be there. Heck, it didn't even look as though he showered before the show.

Oh, and what's up with Hulk NOT thanking Vince McMahon Jr. for giving him the ball? Or for the Iron Sheik, for laying down for him? For shame, Hulk.

Hogans son (someone cloned Nick Carter???) seemed to be smiling alot and looking happy for his dad to me.....and I think it was just his modern day hair style that gave him that "didn't shower" look.

Also, since Spike TV cut out alot of Hogans speech, he might of thanked Vince and Sheik, I don't know.

Hm? I cant figure out if you're trolling or if you just made a mistake... or is.. wait, Andre is not Show's father.. or have I overlooked- hmm.. Im confused.

EDIT: Andre is not his dad right? I think they would have mentioned that sometime during Show's career. Im being an idiot.

When WCW first brought in The Giant (Big Show) to feud with Hogan, they billed him as the "Son of Andre."

Tell me about it. I am old enough to remember Flair at his best (mid to late 80's). He gave the absolute best interviews I had ever seen. Now, he rambles on like a incoherent Alzheimer's patient. Isn't there an old wrestler's home we can put him in?

Who Took My Honor: I was joking. Had been talking with a friend the other day about how Paul Wight debuted in WCW by throwing a shirt in Hogan's face at some autograph signing. Hogan's response was something like, "but that's Andre's shirt..." Then they claimed for a few months that Paul Wight was the son of Andre the Giant...

Of course, thank God he wasn't because then we would have never gotten the whole Bossman/Big Show feud. I don't care what anybody said, Bossman had some of the greatest lines ever...
