Every year, a certain group of talent is elected into the WWE Hall of Fame, and 2014 was going to be no exception. With WWE "WrestleMania XXX" on Sunday, it was time to elect seven fantastic individuals into the Hall of Fame on the evening of Saturday, April 5, 2014. It was a night filled with laughter, emotions, great stories, and touching moments. Watching it was fantastic, but being there in person was legendary.
In what was said to be one of the greatest classes to ever be inducted, it was a long night, but a great one. All of the WWE superstars were in attendance, and in a rare situation, that actually means all of them were there.
One of the greatest inductions came from superstar Kane who inducted the late Paul Bearer and his induction was accepted by his two sons. It was what happened after they left the stage that shocked the world.
The Undertaker, who was long time managed by Bearer and who never shows up at events like this so as to keep the persona intact, came out on stage. He said not a word, posed in the fog, and held up the iconic urn in tribute to his late manager, Paul Bearer.
One of the funnier moments of the evening came from Mr. T's acceptance speech. As the celebrity inductee went on and on about his "mama," Kane's music hit and the "big red corporate machine" walked out on stage to essentially tell Mr. T that his time was up.
Diamond Dallas Page inducted a clean and sober Jake "The Snake" Roberts who gave a very moving and heartwarming speech.
Hall of Famer Trish Stratus opened up the evening by inducted her former nemesis and great friend, Lita. The "Queen of Extreme" gave a very good, and lengthy, acceptance speech.
Carlos Colon humbly accepted his induction into the WWE Hall of Fame after being brought in by his three wrestling sons. Yes, even Carlito was there for his dad.
Razor Ramon (Scott Hall) was inducted in by his longtime tag-team partner and one of his greatest friends, Kevin Nash. After giving a short and moving acceptance speech, the rest of the members of "The Kliq" (Shawn Michaels, Triple H, and X-Pac) reunited with Hall and Nash on stage.
Ending the night was Linda McMahon who introduced and inducted the Ultimate Warrior who is now legally known as Warrior. He came out to his heart-pumping music, but calmly gave a great acceptance speech full of awesome stories to finish out the night
