A video package quickly highlights the various WrestleMania’s.  It is notable that celebrities are emphasized in this package instead of wrestlers, partly due to the fact that Hulk Hogan, competing in WCW, was in the main event of most of them.

Vince McMahon and Jerry Lawler are doing commentary and they are live from Hartford, Connecticut.  The Hartford Civic Center is probably the worst WrestleMania venue in history since it lacks the history and size of its predecessors and successors.  Its selection is an illustration of the problems that the company was experiencing the mid-1990s.

Yokozuna: Hall of Famer

Didn’t see that coming.  Any thoughts?

Not really.  He’s not so obvious a candidate that he’s able to headline the show, but he’s not a ridiculously bad choice either.  I suppose one could make a case for him because he was a pretty big star and won a Royal Rumble and beat Hogan.  Just seems like weird timing since he hasn’t exactly been in the news lately or anything.  Maybe they’ll get Lex Luger to induct him, just to be dicks.
