- At best we can tell, WWE Champion The Rock was not in attendance for Saturday night’s ceremony but one fan noted they spotted his mother in the crowd. Dolph Ziggler tweeted the following before last night’s ceremony about Rock:
“hey @TheRock marks would 90’s rock sit back and ‘know his role’?”
– Mostly everyone in attendance for Saturday night’s WWE Hall of Fame induction ceremony at Madison Square Garden noted that the crowd was very rough at times. Donald Trump and Maria Menounos apparently received the biggest boos of the night. One fan noted that Maria looked like she was going to cry. She went long during her speech for Bob Backlund and was met with “WHAT?” chants.
When John Cena was shown on the big screen, the crowd booed him out of the building. WWE aired a Make-A-Wish video featuring Cena and even that got a very negative reaction from the crowd.
– There was a strong buzz around Bruno Sammartino backstage at the Hall of Fame Saturday night. Many of the WWE stars were meeting Bruno for the first time ever.
