Definitely not as good as the live ones with a crowd, but somehow I've been looking forward to this far more than Wrestlemania.

Yeah I agree, I always look more forward to the HOF than Mania. I just really don’t like this year’s production with no live crowd. With them wanting the first live crowd for Mania I guess there was no other alternative since they weren’t going to do this after Mania. 

From what I saw of JBL’s speech, it was edited so severely and incoherently that it was barely worth watching. It’s painfully obvious it’s not live and was chopped to bits.

"Brickhouse Brown?  Is he the least heralded legacy HOFer ever?  Who inside of WWE pushed for him?  There’s no way Vince even knows who he is. He was never even a top 5 star in any of the smaller territories. 


Probably wanted to recognize an African American.  Titus is getting the Warrior Award, but of course that isn't based on wrestling accomplishments.

Titus' speech is the best so far, not even close in my opinion.  He also knocked it out with a lot of details in a very efficient manner.

nWo closes the first show of course, no one revealing anything new as part of the induction speeches.  All of them looked to be in pretty good health.

The first show ran a little over an hour and a half I think.  They second one is hosted by Corey Graves and Kayla Braxton.  First inductee is Rob Van Dam.

I think the worst part is that everyone has obviously been told to keep their speeches short so nobody is really telling any of the stories that have made the HOF so great in previous years.

Yeah, it feels kind of "paint by numbers," everyone hitting the high spots and moving on.

Rob Van Dam is kind of rambling, talking about "energy," and "changing energy," but he did get his thank you's in toward the end.

Several ads for Wrestlemania here tonight.  The thing is, if you're watching this show, then you already have Peacock and they don't need to be running these same tired commercials.  They already have this audience locked in.

Between inductions, Sasha Banks indicated how "Holly Molly" is so deserving of this HOF induction.

It’s like a Young Bucks match. Superkick...superkick...superkick...

Molly Holly was brief, but she did mention the names of all the people who work in the back.  As always, she comes across as a genuinely nice and humble individual.

The video package for Ozzy was really good.  Tons of the talent have a picture with him and they showed a whole bunch of those.  He had a quick video from home where he thanked Vince and Hunter and said he doesn't deserve the honor, but it's all about the fans.
