X-Pac 1, 2, 360 Recap w/ Al Snow – DDP in the HOF, Shoot Incidents on Tough Enough, ‘Head’ Gimmick, More!
X-Pac talks about the announcement that DDP will be the first entrant into WWE’s Hall of Fame Class of 2017. He says he’s so thrilled for Page, and he’s more than deserving of this induction. He adds that Page had a Hall of Fame career, but he’s also a Hall of Fame human being.
Speaking about the Hall of Fame show, X-Pac feels that WWE should put a time limit on speeches. He informs that Vince McMahon tells every inductee to take as long as they want for their speeches, and more often than not the inductees take advantage of that. He says other than someone like Dusty Rhodes, nobody wants to listen to a 30 minute speech.
For the first time ever, NJPW has announced that they will be hosting self-produced tour dates in the United States. X-Pac says that’s very cool, but NJPW can’t half-ass this. The whole show needs to be authentic for American viewers to get behind it, just like the Japanese audience wants to see authentic WWE production when WWE travels to Japan.
