Isn’t it cool that we live in a world where the lead singer of a metal band in his 70’s can be inducted into the Wrestling Hall Of Fame? Ozzy Osbourne was inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame Tuesday night (April 6) as an unannounced addition of the combined 2020/2021 induction ceremony.
Although the Ozzman was not present to accept the honor, he did tape a video message that was aired as part of the show which you can watch below.
“Thank you so much WWE Universe for this award,” Ozzy says. “I don’t deserve it, but thank you anyway.”
He went on to say: “It’s all about the fans, really. Our fans are what keep us alive really. It’s all about them.
“I wanna thank Vince McMahon and Triple H. Thank you very much, God bless you.”
Ozzy has made numerous on WWE TV over the years, including at WrestleMania 2 where he joined Captain Lou Albano to manage The British Bulldogs in their WWF tag team championship win over Brutus Beefcake and Greg ‘The Hammer’ Valentine. Osbourne also performed live at a SmackDown taping in Baltimore in May 2007, and later served as a special guest host for Raw in November 2009.
The WWE Hall Of Fame 2020 and 2021 induction ceremonies were taped in Florida on Tuesday and Wednesday of last week, and the edited version aired last night on Peacock in the United States and on WWE Network around the world.
