Former WWE Superstar Sean Waltman recently spoke about Mark Henry being inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame, Daniel Bryan getting medically cleared for an in-ring return with WWE and more during the latest edition of his X-Pac 12360 podcast. Featured below are some of the highlights.
On Mark Henry being inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame this year: “There were so many people that were congratulating Mark on Twitter and I didn’t… I purposely avoided it so people didn’t bring up me dressing up in blackface like Mark. Not that I’m afraid. I just didn’t want to insert that into the Hall of Fame conversation. He was fine with it, but I’m not fine with it now. That’s all. And there was nothing bad meant by it, but the things I know now, I’m a little embarrassed by it.”
On Daniel Bryan finally getting medically cleared to return to the ring in WWE: “I’m just really really happy for him. All I could do was have a feel-good moment for Bryan. I totally can understand, because I deal with some of those issues. I know how scary that could be, just the prospect of what’s in store for the future and things like that. I just had to quit doing what I love doing and not on my own terms. And so I’m really happy that it turned out this way, instead of Bryan having to leave WWE to do what he wants to to be happy.
“Trust me, I don’t think they just ran and just jumped right into the deep end of the pool right away. That’s just what we saw… Actually, it’s exactly the right time. Not a moment too late and not a moment too soon because they had to make really really sure and have a lot of different opinions on this, you know? And people can selfishly want to see him back in the ring and in a match but let’s make sure he can do it and not cause any permanent damage.”
On the Ultimate Deletion match on RAW: “I thought it was excellent, it was so wacky, silly, crazy, different. And I am sure some people are crapping all over it, I was just really entertained. I loved when the drone had the big hologram pop up out of it, that was classic. It was well put together. I really like the match they put together for that.”
