The 2013 WWE Hall of Fame ran for three and a half hours yesterday with stories from Mick Foley, Trish Stratus, Booker T, Bob Backlund, Donald Trump, and Bruno Sammartino.
Their respective inductors – Terry Funk, Stephanie McMahon, Stevie Ray, Maria Menounos, Vince McMahon, and Arnold Schwarzenegger – also had some stories to tell, most of which were welcomed, while another, Maria Menounos, was booed.
From dropped elbows, to Santa Claus, to baby announcements, to crazy behavior, etc, the Class of 2013 didn’t disappoint when it came to their speeches.
Some fans however decided to tarnish the show by disrespecting two of the celebrities involved in the show – Maria Menonous and Donald Trump. Booing, chanting obscenities, and causing disturbance, it still showed that some wrestling fans have no business to attend on such a night.
There’s a certain type of friendly boo – like Trish Stratus’ husband got when he was mentioned – to a completely different “get off the stage” boo like Menounos and Trump received.
This event is the honor and appreciate everyone involved and not to voice your displeasure at someone. Hopefully one day, WWE will realise that the Hall of Fame should be in an intimate setting, ensuring the total respect for the inductees and whoever is inducting them.
