Sunny’s induction into the WWE Hall of Fame has been nixed from tonight’s broadcast on the USA Network in favor of Drew Carey’s since a promotional deal is in place to push his new series on GSN. The comedian’s acceptance speech was significantly edited and all boos directed at him were edited out.
A highlight reel showcasing Sunny, Abdullah the Butcher and Bob Armstrong will air.
The special will open up with Dusty Rhodes inducting The Road Warriors and Paul Ellering into the WWE Hall of Fame.
The broadcast will close with the Hall of Fame induction of Shawn Michaels. His speech was heavily edited as it lasts approximately four minutes. Triple H’s crack on Michaels “refusing to join the Hulk Hogan hair club,” however, remains intact.
TNA Wrestling talent Ric Flair, who attended the event, is not shown during the broadcast.
