WWE decided to remove Sunny’s induction from Monday’s WWE Hall of Fame broadcast on the USA Network. Instead, they instead went with Drew Carey’s induction since they have a promotional deal with him to push his new TV show.
The one-hour special opened up with Dusty Rhodes inducting The Road Warriors and Paul Ellering. The show closed with Shawn Michaels being inducted by Triple H.
A video package highlighted the inductions of Sunny, Abdullah the Butcher and Bullet Bob Armstrong.
