— Randy Orton inducted his father, while also acknowledging his grandfather’s presence in the crowd. Bob Orton offered little in the way of a speech.
— Jim Ross inducted Nikolai Volkoff, who gave an emotional speech about having to represent the very country he was so eager to leave during his WWE run.
— Sgt. Slaughter inducted Iron Sheik, who gave a entertaining and, at times, incoherent speech that even got Gene Okerlund a bit frustrated.
— Bobby Heenan inducted Paul Orndoff, who was said to be gracious and bitter at the same time. He also gave a shout out to his kids, evidently not knowing that his speech would not air on the Spike TV telecast.
— Jerry Lawler inducted Jimmy Hart, who gave a solid speech with a lot of thank-yous, including credit to his megaphone.
— After Hogan’s speech, his family took the stage and presented The Hulkster with a glass case of various memorabilia.
