WWE’s 2023 Hall of Fame ceremony was a big night for the legends who saw their names inducted into history. Rey Mysterio, Stacy Keibler, Andy Kaufman, Tim White, and the Great Muta were all inducted, but two specific inductions seemed to garner opposite reactions from within WWE.

Rey Mysterio was the headliner for the 2023 WWE Hall of Fame. Konnan was on hand for his induction to give a great speech. Also, Ric Flair was there to induct the Great Muta, and The Nature Boy had a lot to say as well.

Sean Sapp dropped a note about the WWE Hall of Fame behind Fightful’s paywall. It was said that WWE really liked Konnan’s speech for Rey Mysterio. That being said, they were not as thrilled about Ric Flair’s induction of The Great Muta.

Perhaps it was the fact that Ric Flair mentioned Sting, who is now working for AEW, or it could have been his overall presentation. Either way, it seems that WWE wasn’t thrilled with The Nature Boy’s speech.


Konnan’s speech was well received, and that should come as no real surprise. Konnan’s speech came from the heart as he spoke about his long history with Rey Mysterio.

Ric Flair and the Great Muta have some history together as well, but it seems that WWE preferred Konnan’s time on the microphone over Flair’s this time. We will have to see when Ric Flair is invited back and given a live microphone.

What’s your take on this situation with the WWE Hall of Fame. Which induction speech did you like the most? Sound off in the comments section!
