Teddy Long Announced for WWE Hall of Fame

Works for me.  Long is one of those lifers in wrestling and he deserves something like this.  Teddy joins the Rock N Roll Express and Kurt Angle in the 2017 Class.

    I hope he puts somebody into a tag match in his appectance speech.

    All seriousness though it’s crazy how long he has been around how many eras he was apart of on screen. Underrated manager, good ref, and steady face authority figure for a long time. Well deserved.

    WWE Hall of Fame is kind of a joke. Its completely worthless. Look who’s in it: Drew Carey, Snoop Dog, William Perry, Vince Sr.’s limo driver. Yeah wow, what a prestigious honor. LOLOLOL

    Truth hurts doesn’t it? Is there any point to debate “do you think so and so will ever be in the WWE Hall of Fame” Unless your name is Benoit, the answer is yes. WWE inducts 10 guys every year and they are already grasping at straws. I mean I hear Beth Phoenix will be inducted this year. I mean come on! Only thing to debate these days is if the it was a LEGIT Hall of Fame, who would be in it. Hogan, Flair, Austin, guys like that. Not Koko Frickin’ B. Ware and Pete Rose. FUCK!

    How are they grasping at straws by inducting guys like Kurt Angle, the Rock N Roll Express, and Teddy Long? Teddy Long has been in the business for 30 years as a Manager, Referee, and a General Manager. I would say that warrants a HOF induction. You’d know that if you pulled your head out of your backside for one minute and didn’t hate on everything.

    I’m saying Gracie it’s a stupid thing to argue. Teddy long is getting an honour. Everyone knows the hall of fame doesn’t mean much. But if he’s being honoured by his peers. It must mean something to know
    Your years of work warrant ceramony. Don’t take it away from him.

    That so called honor is lessened when its given out to everyone. Can’t wait til they have to start inducting guys like the Brooklyn Brawler and Dale Wolfe cause they’ve run out of guys to induct. Byron Saxton will probably be a Hall of Fame inductee in a few years at the pace they’re going.

    Might still mean something to teddy himself. Years of service being honored. I see it as a good thing. Good for teddy:)
