Completely,’” Van Dam mentioned.

I suppose Vince mentioned one thing to the impact of ‘Too unhealthy RVD is already within the Corridor of Fame, or he’d be a great candidate for this 12 months’, and somebody mentioned, I believe it was Michael Hayes, mentioned, ‘Vince, RVD is just not within the Corridor of Fame.’ He thought I used to be and was like, ‘What?’ So, fairly cool how that went down and I’m glad, clearly, to be a part of it.”

“For me, I used to be like, nicely, I don’t know what I’m going to say anyway. So it sucks, you recognize, three to 5 minutes. My complete life, I’ve stayed and listened to all these nice lengthy speeches about all these legends. Now I’m going to be in entrance of an empty area, and in three minutes, I’m going to say thanks. However I figured I used to be going to go a little bit bit lengthy, you recognize, possibly 5 or 6 minutes and provides them stuff to edit. I went 26 minutes and didn’t even understand it, I believe as a result of there was no person there. It was bizarre.”
“I’d say one thing and they’d flip up the applause and switch it down so I’d have an concept. Then I’d say one thing else. I had no concept I went that lengthy, however no person appeared upset.
