WWE inducted D-Generation X (Triple H, Shawn Michaels, X-Pac, Billy Gunn, Road Dogg, and Chyna) into this year’s Hall of Fame class earlier this month.
While talking on his X-Pac 1,2,360 podcast, Waltman brought up how he thinks the WrestleMania battle royal should be renamed the Chyna Memorial Battle Royal. He elaborated on this mindset during the podcast where he would mention that he was the first person to offer up that idea.
“I did mention something before we went out, I asked a question. I said, ‘Has anyone talked about that,'” Waltman said on renaming the battle royal after Chyna. “And someone said, ‘no, no one’s ever brought it up’ and I am like ‘well I am.’… I read people going ‘oh, I am disappointed that they didn’t turn it into the Chyna Battle Royal like the next day.’ I said it the night before. Can you at least wait till next year to b*** about it? If they don’t do it next year, I can see people complaining about it. But God, can you at least give them one year?”
“I had no doubts about this but I know a lot of people did. I knew that she would be honored properly, and she was. I just thought it was really nice for her and that she’d be extremely happy with all of that. I know her as well as anyone, and it felt like she was there.”
