WWE Hall of Fame 2017 Inductees 

I did what I did. I did a few things like moonsaults off the tops of cages, but usually I relied on wrestling and technique. A lot of people used to think you had to be really chancy, but I was never like that necessarily. If you know how to structure a match, you don’t always need that stuff. Other guys are starting to understand that, and I haven’t seen this much great talent in a long time. Obviously wrestling is doing something right.” — Kurt Angle 

It was a surprise. I had a message on my phone [from WWE] to call the number back. I think they got ahold of Ricky at the time. When they called, it was just like a suckerpunch. It just knocked us off our feet. It’s an honor for Ricky and me to go into the Hall of Fame.” — Robert Gibson (The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express)

I’m humbled and honored, man. Just to be a part of it. I remember Dusty telling me one time, “You know, D, there’s only two things left in our business that’s still real: your first world title, and the hall of fame.” That’s gonna be emotional for me.” — Diamond Dallas Page

If you looked at all the boxes you would check to make a main event guy that would go down in history as one of the best, Rude checked all the boxes. He was an all-around package. He looked good, he could play the part, he knew what to do. He could take great bumps, feed the babyface when it was time to feed, and he would never run out of gas.” — Ricky Steamboat, on 'Ravishing’ Rick Rude

People think because I do a lot of talking on TV and stuff and that I am an outgoing person, well I am really not, I am kind of a loner. You guys were able to do that for me, and get me back out there, get me on this podcast, and get my name out there. This Hall of Fame thing, I am just honored to be apart of that. I really want to thank the WWE, the WWE Universe, Vince McMahon, Steph, Hunter, all those guys that gave me the opportunity to portray my talents and gave me a break, I just want to thank them all and say I appreciate it.” — Teddy Long

When you are in WWE, you dream of that moment when you get to reflect on your career and the things that you did and you get that wonderful individual honor. It seemed so far off in the distance for me when I was wrestling. I didn’t know when — or if — I’d ever experience that feeling. I certainly didn’t think I’d have that opportunity this early in my life. It’s amazing and very, very humbling.” — Beth Phoenix

That’s one thing I really admire about these men. Sure they’ve probably had their disputes from time to time but they’ve always stuck together. So many bands from the eighties have broken up and they’re not touring anymore which really sucks for people like me that would want to see them live. Def Leppard isn’t like that. They are brothers. They are a family. They are everything a band should be and more.

“One of the things I always tell everyone about Hysteria is that when Steve and I listened to the final mix in Holland we listened to the whole album in silence. We were blown away by what Mutt had done. I can honestly say that if it had never sold a single copy that wouldn’t have mattered as we had achieved what I believe to be out creative and artistic zenith. Obviously this was Mutt’s plan. It was much bigger than we thought it was. When we heard the finished product all of the hours and tireless experiments melted away to wonder. Recording Hysteria allowed Steve and I to finally fulfill our ‘guitar orchestra’ dream that we had been planning and talking about for years. Mutt pushed and even gave those dreams deeper dimension.
The album was not genre specific like a ‘rock album as it crossed over into many genres of music. It also appealed to multi-dimensional audiences and demographics without losing any of its rock edge.
The focus of the album was on the songs and production enhancement of those songs. The instruments became secondary as they were just a tool to fulfill the vision. There are so many guitars and vocals but nothing gratuitous. The genius of Mutt is if it’s not enhancing then it’s taking away. With so many ideas floating around we ended up enhancing like crazy always with the two key elements in mind, rhythm and melody. Sonically this album sounded different to anything that had come before it but would go on to inspire a whole generation. There was enough ear candy in the overdubs to keep people interested 26 years later. All that added up to making 'Star Wars for the ears.’
While rehearsing for 'Viva Hysteria 2013’ in Las Vegas it really hit home how much magic we had actually injected into the album.”

“You’re gonna get caught,” says Lommy as he sees her flicking through her messages. She waves him away. Mrs. Tarth is too busy grading papers to notice them while they’re supposed to be working on a group assignment.

“I don’t care, Lom. There’s something weird going on. I feel it in my bones,” Arya says.
