Mr. T posted the following via his Twitter account:

To my fans:

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? Matthew 10:32-33


All the inductees were told that you, "the fans, wanted to hear our stories", to take our time and enjoy the moment but something...


I was deeply moved by the outpouring of support you showed me after my HOF speech was cut short.


Soon I will post the remainder of my speech for you to read. Thank you for your support.


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!

Yes, really and seriously.  The WWE went out of their way to give T plenty of time to finish and handle his removal as gracefully as possible given the circumstances.

Honestly I don't think anybody needed to be cut - they were live on their own network, let them speak. I do think Mr T and Lita went pretty long, but at least Lita was entertaining as hell.

Mr. T would still be up there rambling if they didn't cut him.  The fact is, the crowd was playing along and mocking him with cheers and chants (which he didn't realize were largely sarcastic) for a long time, but the mood was darkening and he was about to get booed.  They saved him a lot of embarrassment by pulling him when they did.  That's why they did it more than anything.

I think the one thing I got from T's speech is not to talk about his momma.

I love Lita, but I can't agree.  Her stories were awkward and long and really not funny.

Just bend over and show your thong and move along...

I thought Lita was fine.  She needed to cut that first story short about travelling to Mexico though.  That went on forever.  The speech got better from there.

I think Mr T was almost finished talking about his mother, but they were worried he was then going to read the bible from cover to cover. He could have told one rasslin story, surely?

I was kind of hoping Piper would appear and cut a heel promo on T.

North American Feral Apes often feel slighted when asked to follow rules, time constraints, civility, etc.

Did Lita tell any golden shower stories. I mean if she spoke about that she could have went on all night as far as I was concerned. I LOVE golden shower stories.
