I think this year HOF should be interesting. I really like to see Flair speech the most. I know the USA network will give us a cut up pieces of the speech, but nonetheless, I'll pick up the WM DVD to get the full version.

i'm disappointed they are calling him Gerald.

Jack & Jerry Brisco will always be cooler than Jack and Gerald.

fun note, Jerry Brisco has also been a tag champ with Rocky Johnson

The Rock stuff was just plain awesome, in that there was one mark-out moment after another.

As for Ric Flair, it was great to see that even though he so richly deserves the honor that was given to him tonight, the guy still, after all of these many years, has sense of modesty.

Though, with that being said, it has to be asked, where was Arn Anderson?

Well Sky Sports aired an hour of this year's Hall of Fame today and that really was something special. The airing showed The Rock inducting his father and grandfather and skipped to Trips inducting Flair. The Rock was the typical tease he is for the first part - enjoyed his comparison of him in Doom and Cena in The Marine. Now there's a match I'd love to see. Glad Rocky acknowledged Santino too - fine moment! Regardless, a really heartfelt promo he made that touched my heart and brought it back home. Flair's induction was something I'll cherish in my mind for a long time. He is in a c1ass of his own as Hunter got spot on. Again, another heart felt speech which had me on the brink of tears. He's such an honourable man to his family and three wives and I'm glad I saw that side of him today since it's the first I've seen it. Congratulations goes down to this year's inductees this year.
