Eric LeGrand Reacts To Being Nominated For WWE’s ‘Warrior Award’, Talks WWE Hall Of Fame


2017 WWE “Warrior Award” recipient Eric LeGrand recently spoke with ESPN about being nominated for the award and more. You can check out some highlights below:

On being part of WWE’s Hall of Fame induction ceremony: “It’s going to be incredible. I honestly can’t put it into words yet. It has not sunk in that I’m going to be a part of the WWE Hall of Fame induction ceremony with all these great superstars. It’s going to be truly amazing. WrestleMania is one of the biggest events in the world and to have my name attached to it and be a part of it as a small kid from Avenel, New Jersey, is a true blessing and a true honor. It just shows you if you do right in the world, good things do happen to you.”

On finding out he was getting the “Warrior Award”: “I was in complete shock when I found out. What an honor. Paul’s assistant sent me an email on Tuesday saying Paul wanted to talk and wanted to schedule a call for Thursday. So I’m sitting here for two days wondering what Triple H wants to say to me. My heart was racing for two days wondering what this was all about. When he called me, he explained the award to me and what they do at WrestleMania, and then he told me at the end that they want to present the award to me, and I honestly didn’t know what to say. I didn’t know how to react. This was incredible as someone who grew up as a fan since I was a little kid.”
