Here’s Ozzy Osbourne’s WWE Hall of Fame Induction Video
The WWE has released Ozzy Osbourne’s acceptance video from his recent induction into their Hall of Fame.
Says Ozzy in the video:
“As you, Hoke Hogannnnn, travel to WRESTLEMANIA by conventional means, the normals you travel with experience malfunctions. As you realize ALL THAT IS LEFT is total self-destruction, do you, Hoke Hogan, show self-pity? DO YOU, HOKE HOGAN, try to reason why? Do you, Hoke Hogan, try and comfort the normals that have even more fear than you? AS YOU REALIZE, Hoke Hogan, you are about to enter a world close to Parts Unknown. DO YOU, Hoke Hogan, look for a place to hide? Or do you, Hoke Hogan, face that challenge? That may be more powerful THAN EVEN YOU ARE, HOKE HOGAN! You, Hoke Hogan, must self-destruct. So that you will know, Hoke Hogan, who is… the chosen one. FOR HOKE HOGAN, I am not the chosen one that you speak of. I am not. I, Hoke Hogan, am the ONLY one.”
Just kidding. What he actually said was something like, “Ooh this is so flattering I don’t deserve it it’s all about the fans yay!”, or whatever normal boring stuff people during these things.
You can watch the video below. It’s honestly pretty weird, and not just because Ozzy has to Zoom in for the ceremony; there was no crowd in attendance, so they used canned audience cheers. They try to make it seem like it’s all the fans clapping on Zoom, but the audio is much too crisp for that to actually be the case. It’s just, I dunno. Strange.
Ozzy, meanwhile, is currently working on a new album with Ordinary Man producer Andrew Watt. The album will also feature his former/Metallica’s current bassist, Robert Trujillo; Red Hot Chili Peppers/Ordinary Man drummer Chad Smith; and Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins.
The European leg of his “No More Tours 2” farewell trek, which will also feature Judas Priest, is scheduled to resume in 2022. Get dates here.
Look out, DDT comin’ up:
