Posted By Caroline Walsh on 03/13/17


Eric LeGrand spoke with ESPN about being announced as the 2017 WWE Warrior Award recipient. Highlights are below:

On finding out he was getting the award: ďI was in complete shock when I found out. What an honor. Paulís assistant sent me an email on Tuesday saying Paul wanted to talk and wanted to schedule a call for Thursday. So Iím 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 didnít know what to say. I didnít know how to react. This was incredible as someone who grew up as a fan since I was a little kid.Ē

On being part of WWEís Hall of Fame induction ceremony: ďItís going to be incredible. I honestly canít put it into words yet. It has not sunk in that Iím going to be a part of the WWE Hall of Fame induction ceremony with all these great superstars. Itís 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.Ē
