    I don't know about Benoit tbh. That'd be like OJ Simpson winning the ESPY award for courage.

    For Benoit, if it's going to happen, I can see it happening if they sorta snuck it in. Whether as part of a group induction or similarly to the Legacy inductions that they started last year. It could be as far as a couple decades away, but the HOF has taught me to not rule anyone out. What is impossible today can become a possibility in the future.

    Re: WWE Hall of Fame 2017 - Rick Rude is Number 6

    Eric LeGrand, a former standout for the Rutgers University football team-turned-motivational speaker, has been named the recipient of the third annual Warrior Award. The news was first reported by ESPN.com.

    Named after WWE Hall of Famer Ultimate Warrior, The Warrior Award is presented to an individual who has exhibited unwavering strength and perseverance, and who lives life with the courage and compassion that embodies the indomitable spirit of Ultimate Warrior.

    The award will be presented to LeGrand by Dana Warrior, widow of Ultimate Warrior, at the 2017 WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, which will broadcast from Orlando, Florida’s Amway Center live on WWE Network at 8 ET/5 PT on Friday, March 31. USA Network will also broadcast a special presentation of the ceremony on Monday, April 3 at 11 p.m. ET/PT, immediately following Raw.

    LeGrand was a key player on the Rutgers University football team, before a spinal cord injury sustained during a game in October 2010 left him paralyzed from the neck down. LeGrand’s tremendous courage and unwavering strength throughout his rehabilitation captured the attention of the nation. He resumed his college classes via Skype and launched his sports broadcasting career as an analyst for Rutgers Football Radio Network. LeGrand founded the charity Team LeGrand of the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation in 2013, and is now a highly sought-after motivational speaker. In support of LeGrand’s mission – raising funds for research to find a cure for paralysis and to help improve the quality of life for people with spinal cord injuries – WWE will make a $25,000 donation to Team LeGrand.

    “It is an absolute honor to be named the 2017 Warrior Award recipient,” said LeGrand. “I am truly grateful for WWE’s support of my personal journey, and I am proud to continue to be an example of strength for people everywhere.”

    “Eric LeGrand has shown incredible perseverance and unwavering positivity throughout his recovery,” said Stephanie McMahon, WWE Chief Brand Officer. “From the work he does helping others with spinal cord injuries to his motivational speaking, Eric is the perfect choice for this prestigious award.”

    “Eric LeGrand truly embodies the Warrior spirit with his determination and positive outlook,” said Dana Warrior. “I am honored to present this year’s Warrior Award to Eric at the WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony.”

    Last year, The Warrior Award was presented to Joan Lunden, an award-winning journalist, best-selling author and breast cancer survivor. In 2015, the award was presented for the first time to Connor Michalek, a Pittsburgh native and passionate WWE fan who passed away after battling cancer. In his honor, Connor’s Cure was created as a fund to support pediatric brain and spinal cord cancer research. To date, Connor’s Cure has raised $1 million and assisted more than 100 families around the world.
    They still don't get what Warrior wanted. Still though LeGrand is a fighter and he has an amazing story.

    Warrior would be proud, just what he wanted

    and yes Dook, I will never give up talking about how shitty is that WWE took a dead man's wish and turned it into a chance to masterbate over their charity work.

    I mean, it was alright with Connor and I doubt anyone would bitch about that, but now it's getting a bit ridiculous. Maybe Steph figures the people Warrior wanted to acknowledge with this award should already be happy enough receiving a weekly paycheck.

    At this point, I can't think of anyone that is an absolute lock to not get into the HOF due to issues. The fact that the WWE HOF has Bret, Bruno, Warrior, Zbyszko, Graham, and others is just an insane notion. Although I certainly wouldn't expect it any time soon, I could even see CM Punk and shockingly Benoit sneaked in there at some point.
    I would not be shocked if Punk were to wrestle with wwe again.

    Yes, but there's a bit of a wrinkle in that. Namely, they work for McMahons. And McMahons are fucking nuts. It's a miracle that any of them don't break down into PTSD.

    You would think that the Warrior Award would go to people who... actually deserve it?

    I mean, the Brawler was good shot for it, same goes to Tim White (for his friendship and practically taking care of Andre in his late years), or god forbid, Bucky Beaver Kevin Dunn.

    So are all of the people in the Hall of Fame. Only difference is one group has no name and would garner no public attention for the company if they announced them on TV, whereas the other group will. This tactic by the 'E to use the Warrior award to promote tear-jerking/inspirational stories that helps them look like charity gods and can't actually be argued with because who's gonna get mad at dead kid, a cancer survivor and a former football player in a wheel chair being given honours for their struggles.

    It's not what Warrior wanted but there's no arguing with the logic behind what it is, even if you're being cynical about it. I just wish they concentrated on people in or closely related to wrestling rather than people that are in no way involved at all.

I can honestly say that I have never had anything I would call a bad blowjob, that wasn't a great experience but up until I started gushing blood I was having a great time!

    I don't think I've been more excited for an induction speech in my life.

    I wonder how many people he'll try to bury. Man I can't wait.
