I love the Hall of Fame. I love watching all the legends talk about their careers and telling old stories. This year's had a lot of great inductees. It was very emotional to see Eddie Guererro inducted by his wife And I loved seeing "Sensational" Sherri get inducted, one of the greatest female professional wrestlers.And last but not least Bret "The Hit-man" Hart. He is someone i least expected to get inducted with his history with the business.I never thought i would actually see Bret Hart in the WWE Hall of Fame. But never say never in this business.But overall it was a great induction ceremony. And I can not wait for next years ceremony!

I was so excited for this back in 2006, because one of my all time
favorites Bret Hart, was finally getting something right done to him. I
am proud to say it didn't disappoint.
The Blackjacks. Inducting them "Bobby Heenan" Bobby Heenan's speech was really moving, and actually quite funny. Big Weasel chant at the start. He names his favorite tag teams, but none of them were better then The Blackjacks. The Blackjacks speech was kinda unmemorable, I didn't really find anything of particular interest.
2 1/2 /5. For Heenan alone
Verne Gagne. Inducted by his son Greg. Greg cuts a decently funny promo, about how he never thought there would be a day, where Verne was inducted. Verne cuts a nice speech, I was pretty pleased.
2 1/2 /5
William "The Refrigerator" Perry Inducted by John Cena. HUGE heat for Cena. I'm talking major heat. Kinda disrespectful in my opinion. Cena shows once more why he is Vince's golden boy, and actually that's not a knock, He has some of the best Mic skills I have ever seen. His imitation for introducing Perry, was a hoot, and had everyone laughing. Perry cuts an OK speech, personally I don't think celebrities belong there
Tony Atlas Inducted by S.D Jones. S.D cuts a pretty crazy speech, reasonably entertaining stuff. Tony had a couple of interesting things, but it's hard not to look at him ridiculously now, with that laughing gimmick of his.
Sensational Sherri Inducted by Ted Dibiase. Huge pop for Dibiase. Ted cuts a very classy and witty speech, that was both engaging and heartwarming. Sherri cuts one of the most insane and all over the place speeches I have ever heard, yet one of the most endearing and fascinating as well. That woman is one of a kind, and even though it was a tad overlong, I enjoyed almost every minute of it. You won't see anything like this, that's guaranteed.
Mean Gene Okerlund Inducted by Hulk Hogan. Hogan comes out to an OK, but rather underwhelming pop for him. Lots of Hogan vs Austin chants. Hogan says that would be a good match one day|Yeah if that includes him, not jobbing|. The speech felt kinda forced, and it sorta seemed like he didn't wanna be there. Thought his stories about Mean Gene were cute. Mean Gene cuts a great speech all around. I loved his "my critics can kiss my ass" thing at the end
3 1/2 /5
Eddie Guerrero Inducted by Beniot, Chavo, and Rey. All 3 had entertaining and heartfelt speeches, my favorite had to be Chavo's though, I just felt it the most. An emotional time for everyone, and this was done with class.
Bret "The Hit-man" Hart. Inducted By Stone Cold Steve Austin. Nice pop for The Rattlesnake. Austin says he found a tag with a can of whoop ass, with Hogan's name on it. Big pop for that. Austin cuts a respectful, but bold and funny speech, as only Austin can do. Bret comes out to an enormous pop. His speech was honest, heartfelt, and very funny, with great stories about Owen and Jim Neidhart. Very well done stuff here.
Bottom line. This just oozed class. It was all great stuff. It was nice to see the wrestlers laughing, and having a good time. People like Mickie, Trish, Melina, Candice, Victoria. All looked lovely. Highly recommended, if you haven't seen it
