Mr. T disappointed he wasn’t allowed to finish hall of fame speech



Mr. T used Twitter to air his thanks and frustration regarding his Hall
of Fame speech getting cut before he was finished. “Thank you very much
for all your support! I am very disappointed and saddened that you
couldn’t hear the rest of my speech. I was told my speech went too long?
Really? Seriously?” Mr. T wrote. He said that all the inductees were told
that the fans would want to hear their stories and were instructed to
“take our time and enjoy the moment.” Mr. T added that he was moved by the
support fans showed to him after his speech was cut short and he will post
the remainder of the speech for everyone to read it. “My mother taught me
to stand up for what I believed in. I put a lot of care and love into my
speech. I wanted it to inspire and motivate people when they are hurting.
Since my mother taught me to always try and take the high road, I will. If
my speech helped just 1 mother & 1 son out there, thank you GOD,” he
wrote. Mr. T also thanked Rowdy Roddy Piper for his words after his
speech, saying they meant a lot to him. The two were not very friendly due
to the heat they had at the time of WrestleMania I and II.

    Honestly, I can’t defend him for it. Jake’s was from the heart and emotionally powerful. Warrior repeated himself a couple times, but he had the right as the headliner. Scott, Carlos, and Bearer’s kids were cut short. Mr. T could have kept it short and sweet but he was rambling on. I respect that he built himself up, that his mom raised him right, and God is his savior however, you have to look at making your point and not ramble on.

    He went on forever but they could have given him a wrap it up sign or something…I pity the fool that treats Mr. T like a jabroni!!

    Honestly I thought Lita was going to talk for three hours. Maybe they should give each inductee a time limit based on how much they would like to hear from each one. Maybe they should have told him you have five minutes so make it count.

    If any speech needed cut short, it was Lita. You want to talk about rambling.

    really? His claim to fame in the WWF was 30 years ago! He should have took 5 minutes, no longer!

    Lita looked hot but yes she rambled on FOREVER most of it was incoherent but they let her finish!
