Mr. T used Twitter to air his thanks and frustration regarding his Hall of Fame speech getting cut before he was finished.
“Thank you very much for all your support! I am very disappointed and saddened that you couldn’t hear the rest of my speech. I was told my speech went too long? Really? Seriously?” Mr. T wrote.
He said that all the inductees were told that the fans would want to hear their stories and were instructed to “take our time and enjoy the moment.”
Mr. T added that he was moved by the support fans showed to him after his speech was cut short and he will post the remainder of the speech for everyone to read it.
“My mother taught me to stand up for what I believed in. I put a lot of care and love into my speech. I wanted it to inspire and motivate people when they are hurting. Since my mother taught me to always try and take the high road, I will. If my speech helped just 1 mother & 1 son out there, thank you GOD,” he wrote.
Mr. T also thanked Rowdy Roddy Piper for his words after his speech, saying they meant a lot to him. The two were not very friendly due to the heat they had at the time of WrestleMania I and II.
