In a recent interview with Busted Open Radio, WWE Hall of Famer Molly Holly discussed her speech being cut short for the broadcast, but how the company made things right by posting her full speech on their official YouTube account.

“It was awesome that Hurricane Helms was the one to tell me that I was going to be inducted in to the Hall of Fame. The fact that he legitimately, for real, got choked up and was super proud of me, that was really special, I loved that moment. Behind the scenes, after that, I was told that I would have about 15 minutes to give a speech, so I spent a lot of time and had three friends of mine that are professional writers help me. I practiced it for 60 hours, I have a regular 9 to 5 job and after work every day, I would practice it while I was going for a walk, I worked really hard on it.

Then, a couple of days before, they said, oh never mind, you actually have two minutes to give your speech. I cried for like four hours. A lot of times, when I used to wrestle full-time, they would tell us you have 12 minutes to wrestle and then, right before we walk out, they would be like, nope you have four minutes. We were so ready to tell a story of good versus evil and give the fans their money’s worth, now it’s just entrances, two moves and the match, it would be such a heartbreak.

I think I took a lot of that resentment, or hurt, or whatever from 20 years ago and piled it on that moment when they cut my speech down. I was so sad, but here’s the good news, the WWE made it right and they let me give my speech on their YouTube page, which is like, 75 million people that can look at that. Sure, I was so hurt, and then I was so happy that they let me thank Dean Malenko and Lanny Poffo and these people that really helped shape my career, it’s been a roller-coaster of emotions for me.”
