It's just because it an idea that Warrior mentioned in his speech so doing it without acknowledging him would be hard. I do agree that they gloss over some of the horrible things he did and say but that happens a lot when someone passes away.
Warriors speech never mentioned people like those being honored. WWE hacked and botched his idea.
Warriors idea was and always will be to honor the "BACKSTAGE" people who set up the ring, the refs who ref the matches, those who contribute to making the guys look like a million bucks.
Not some 6-7 year old kid with cancer, not just another PR stunt like this year. I will never like the warrior award, it's a PR award at this point and has nothing to do with the dedication and work effort people bring to making the WWe look like a million bucks.
Having said that, Beth is married to Edge?!?!?! I never knew that... Damnit my Glamazon is married to Edge! Lucky bastard. Beth deserved her time in the HOF, she was 2-3 time woman's champ. She dominated her division when she was allowed to and was always very entertaining. If Koko can be in, surely they can induct her in.
As for the rest... I like Jim's induction speech and Kurt was ok.
Overall though the speeches were just that, something to pass the time.

I'm with you, the whole thing is just PR. Just like the celebrity inductee. Plus Warriors original idea wasn't a bad one. James Dudley, while he did work a little on screen, mostly worked backstage in various roles and was put into the first class of the Hall of Fame. Although I'm sure the day Kevin Dunn steps away he'll be put into the Hall of Fame.
Yeah Edge & Beth have been married for a while, they have 2 kids together. They got married last year I believe and have been together for a long time.
