Mike Tyson Inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame Live Report
Mike Tyson inducted by Triple H and Shawn Michaels
HBK and Triple H then came out to the DX music to a big ovation. They were in full comedy mode. Hunter said he and Shawn used to try to rush from shows to a sports bar to watch a Mike Tyson fight but Tyson knocked out his opponents so fast they usually missed it. Hunter made fun of Shawn getting knocked out at WM 14. He said that Tyson helped turn the tide in the war against WCW. Triple H was going to introduce Tyson but Michaels cut him off saying he thought he got to introduce him. Triple H said go ahead since you’re better than me at everything anyway. That drew laughter from the crowd and a loud, “Shawn is better” chant. Triple H said, “I do have feelings you know, guys.” Pretty funny stuff from DX.
They introduced Tyson and he was all smiles. I thought Mil Mascaras was difficult to understand. I couldn’t make out hardly anything Tyson said. He said something about watching Bruno Sammartino and Superstar Billy Graham. He said he almost became a pro wrestler instead of a boxer. He joked about being arrested. He also joked that John Cena and Dusty Rhodes were black. His speech ended out of nowhere and nobody seemed to know what to think.
