Interview highlights courtesy of Aaron Carnevale:

His thoughts on his fellow inductees in this year’s WWE Hall of Fame class: “All of those guys (Bruno Sammartino, Bob Backlund, Mick Foley, Trish Stratus, and Donald Trump) have their own special unique talent. They all brought something different to the game. I’m honored to be sitting out there watching these guys and get that honor. I am looking forward to seeing Bruno Sammartino finally taking that step into immortality. I think it is something that is long overdue. It’s going to be a great night any way you look at it.”

The build-up to WrestleMania XXIX: “WrestleMania always starts the day after the previous WrestleMania. The build-up has been no different as far as the promotion goes, and you have to notice that. The fans are going to show up and it is going to be a great night of wrestling and a great night of entertainment.”

His mission statement for his Reality of Wrestling promotion in Houston, TX: “I’m trying to create an environment for the young people that want to get into this business and see what it is really all about from a true perspective.”

    This year the Hall of Fame class is indeed very much star studded and talented
    the Only person that doesn’t fit there is Donald Trump

      He does belong. People just don’t get it that a Celebrity Induction is different from a Superstar Induction. Donald Trump has benefited wrestling. He hosted WM IV and V and he was a key part in the most lucrative WrestleMania of all time. WrestleMania 23. He belongs. The only celeb that does not belong is Drew Carey.

        Bob Uecker doesn’t belong there. What the fuck did he ever do for WWE let alone Wrestlemania?!

          Maybe you didn’t watch WrestleMania III or IV. He was very entertaining in both.

        Hey i don’t mean that Trump doesn’t belong in the Hall of Fame
        IMO he just shouldn’t be In THIS class.

          What is the difference? If he is inducted 5 years from now….he will still be in the HOF with everyone that was inducted this year.

            Yes may be but my point was because people are saying this to be the best class in history thats why I thought they could do this one without any celebrity

          • http://www.facebook.com/tomwing77 Thomas Wing

            I don’t think this is the best class in history. I think its a good class don’t get me wrong. I don’t really think one class is more better than the other. I think it is the most high profiled class since 05 led by Hogan. WWE will always try to put in a celebrity contributor every year to the celeb hall of fame. I would rather they do Trump in 2013 instead of doing Trump with 2011 and doing Drew Carey in 2013. Better yet…just do Trump in 2013 and Drew Carey…..NEVER lol

      I hate Donald Trump, however he definately deserves it with his hosting of WM’s IV & V as well as his involvement in WM 23. He also has appeared on RAW a bunch of times too. I may not like his political agenda, but you can’t deny what he has done for WWE.

        yes that is true

  • the_unknown

    last year’s wrestlemania build-up was ten times better. im just not sold on any of the matches booked this year. that not to say that this year’s mania won’t be great but just based off of the build-up in the past few weeks im not even considering streaming the ppv this year lol
