Teddy Long latest to join the 2017 Hall Of Fame Class

How bout that playa?!

Former WWE SmackDown General Manager Teddy Long has been announced as the latest entry into the 2017 WWE Hall Of Fame Class. He joins the likes of Kurt Angle and The Rock N’ Roll Express. Long recently spoke to FOX Sports to react to the news, and here’s what he had to say:

“Well, I was really surprised, you know?,” Long said, when asked about his reaction when he got the call. “I had thought about being inducted into the Hall of Fame and I thought ‘well, if they’re going to do that, I’m pretty sure my time will come one day.’ And that’s what did happen. I was real excited, it’s such an honor to be a part of something like this. To go into the 2017 WWE Hall of Fame… man, it’s just great. It don’t get no better than that.

“I just want to thank Vince McMahon and the McMahon family, and the WWE Universe, and all the people that just hung out with me and wanted some more Teddy Long. I’m just excited right now so I’m kind of lost for words.”

  • I have profited 104 thousand bucks in 2016 by doing an on-line job from my house and I did that by work­ing part time f­­o­­r 3 or sometimes more h /daily. I was following a business model I came across from this website i found online and I am happy that I was able to earn so much money. It’s very user-friendly and I’m just so grateful that I found out about it. Here is what i do… STATICTAB.COM/r2tyhgi

I was following a money making model I found online and I am so happy that i was able to make so much extra income. It’s really beginner friendly a­n­d I’m so thankful that i found this.

    That’s a good compromise. I’d dig that.

    JBL wants to do it. He said on Facebook that he got to induct all of the other people he rode with, Godfather and Ron Simmons, so Teddy is the only one that he hasn’t gotten a chance to do it for. Based on what he’s said in interviews, Teddy may want Vince to do it since he was grateful for the shot that Vince gave him. We’ll see. My guess would be that the APA inducts him.

    Teddy used to ride with JBL, Ron and The Godfather. Any of those guys would make sense. Him and Booker T go way back to Teddy’s time in WCW, so he would make sense too. As long as they don’t try to do Ric Flair it should be okay.

    Still no Davey Boy Smith/British Bulldogs??

    F***s sake WWE

    LMBO! “Meanwhile I wuz in the back hashed up. Smokin’ big hash…”

    Too old Scorpio gonna be like awwww they was up there fighting agiiiiiin

  • D2K

    They could, but I don’t really see any other than a cursory-connection with JBL and Booker T.

    I would think that Ron Simmons would probably be there somewhere anyway. He’s on the Legends deal so that wouldn’t cost the extra. Teddy Long managed Ron Simmons and Butch Reed when they were called Doom and they won the tag team titles too. Another name I wouldn’t mind seeing induct him is 2 Cold Scorpio just because I would love to hear him in front of a live audience tell some stories.

    They could always ask someone who’s gonna be there anyway, like JBL or Booker T to do it if they wanted to save money.

    Congrats Teddy. So who inducts him? Butch Reed? Ron Simmons. Dan Spivey?
