After a long night very good speeches and moments at the WWE Hall of Fame induction ceremony in San Jose, California last night (March 28, 2015), it's kind of a bummer that one of the things getting the most buzz today is something that wasn't said.
But many fans did notice when Rikishi kicked off the evening with lots of talk about family, but not much for his Attitude Era partners Brian Christopher or Scott Taylor.
Big 'kish joining the team of Too Cool in 1999 signaled a face turn for Grandmaster Sexay (Christopher) and Scotty 2 Hotty (Taylor) and as a trio they reached a peak with a famous dance break during the Royal Rumble match in 2000 and a tag title win for Sexay & Scotty & an Intercontinental championship for Rikishi during a feud with the McMahon-Helmsley Regime.
Scotty took to Twitter to express his disappointment at the snub:
In Dec. 99, 3 guys that were pretty much obsolete in the wrestling biz came together and made each other. 1 apparently doesn't remember that— Scotty 2 Hotty (@TheScotty2Hotty) March 29, 2015
It's not at all about us being in the HOF. He absolutely deserves it. Just as we deserved a mention.— Scotty 2 Hotty (@TheScotty2Hotty) March 29, 2015
What do you think, Cagesiders? Does Too Cool have a reason to be hurt? Should Rikishi try to mend fences publicly after the fact? Would you rather be talking about the legacy of Connor Michalek?
