Sean Waltman Talks DX HOF Induction Being Nixed In 2013, Honky Tonk Man & More

Soon to be WWE Hall Of Famer Sean “X-Pac” Waltman was recently interviewed on the WINCLY podcast in which he talked about watching D-Generation X while he was working with WCW, why WWE is inducting DX into the Hall Of Fame now, and The Honky Tonk Man finally being inducted into the Hall Of Fame. Below are the highlights, courtesy of WrestlingInc.

Watching his friends in D-Generation X while in WCW: 

“No you’re happy,” Waltman said. “Eric Bischoff wanted to destroy Vince in the ratings, but we wanted them to stay in the game. We wanted it to be neck-and-neck. We didn’t want to skunk the other team and spike the football every single time.”

Why WWE is inducting DX into the Hall Of Fame now: 

“I don’t know [laughs],” Waltman said. “New York, I’m thinking it’s New York. The last time they talked about inducting us was I think the last time we did New York [WrestleMania 29 in 2013] and they ended up inducting Bruno [Sammartino].”

The Honky Tonk Man being inducted into the Hall Of Fame:

 “They asked him several years ago and for whatever reason, he declined at the time,” said Waltman. “But it’s long overdue… I can sing every single word of Honky Tonk’s theme song. He was great.

“He might not be that cruiserweight-style wrestler or a Bret Hart-type of wrestler, but I thought he was great. He was such an over-the-top character and it was a character on the peripheral of wrestling. I’m happy for him. He deserves it.”
