I almost do to be honest. I did not know until I saw it on VHS years ago that they had that type of connection, I kind of almost start tear up a little seeing that. What a wonderful speech by a wonderful man, I truly repect the man who announced one of the all time classics Hogan vs. Goldberg, a moment in time. Him and Monsoon were great together, though that was seen through me watching the network and DVDS before I had the network before it was around. Surprised the body did not talk about Monsoon, he may have though have not seen the pleasure of watching the whole inductions.

Re: Does anyone almost tear up a little bit when they show Bobby Hennans induction speech on Maina 20 and he talks about Gorrlia

Yes, I tear up just about every time. Also on the clip from the Nitro episode where they mention Gorilla's passing. Even though Tony Schiavone acts like an ass during it.

They really were such a fantastic duo, couldn't fake a chemistry like the one they had.

Seriously, it was a very great and emotional speech. They were fantastic as a duo and I miss them.

Right in the feels. I do miss Gorilla a lot. And it aggrevates me a bit when listening to the 3 stooges today. No passion, no fire and cringeworthy comments.

I liked King as a commentater, though I always despised him as a wrestler and the shit he pulled with Tommy Dreamer, but even he's just going through the motion now.

Gorilla and Heenan, absolute legendary commentators.

Heenan's speech is the greatest HOF speech of all time. It was both funny and emotional.

His rant about the World Wildlife Fund was hilarious:

"You want to talk about wildlife? Back in my day we had a Moondog, a Junkyard Dog, two Bulldogs, a Mad Dog, a Birdman, a Red Rooster, and to top it all off, WE HAD A WEASEL AND A GORILLA DOING COMMENTARY!"

When he points to the sky at the end and says he wished Monsoon could have been there, it just broke my heart right there.

Definitely a tear-jerker for sure. The Monsoon/Heenan pairing was golden and untouchable. That chemistry cannot be taught in a seminar.

Monsoon/Heenan and JR/King are my two all-time favorite announce teams and for good reason.
