Pro wrestling legend Sgt. Slaughter recently spoke with the folks from FOX News for an interview. During the discussion, the WWE Hall Of Famer made some interesting comments about the process of deciding who gets selected to be inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame during WrestleMania weekend every year.
“Being inducted into the Hall of Fame is the number one thing that you’re shooting for,” Slaughter told FOX News. “You don’t win titles, you earn titles, and to earn the right to be a Hall of Famer and voted in by your peers — I was unanimously voted in. I was still wrestling, actually, and it was a great honor. I knew what it was like for me to think of what I wanted to say, who I wanted to thank, and as anything, there’s time limits.”
Slaughter continued, “Wrestlers can talk the chrome off a bumper, so you have to try to get it all into one 10-minute conversation — your whole career, your whole life and who to thank. So it’s a pretty big deal and I really enjoyed it.”
From there, the pro wrestling legend spoke about his excitement for this year’s WWE Hall Of Fame induction ceremony at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York during WrestleMania 35 Weekend.
“This year it’s going to be at the Barclays Center, and I look forward to it because it’s my favorite time of the week when I hear the stories and hear who they thank and how they got there.”
