Mike Tyson Explains How He Got Into The WWE Hall Of Fame

The Los Angeles Times has a new article online featuring quotes from 2012 WWE Hall of Fame inductee Mike Tyson. Below is an excerpt:

How’d you get into the WWE Hall of Fame?

“They think I belong in there and want me to fly out and get inducted into their hall. I’m not going to argue with them. I’m ecstatic. I watched wrestling before I ever watched boxing on TV. Bruno Sammartino was my favorite, but I liked all those guys: Junkyard Dog, Nikolai Volkoff, the Iron Sheik, Superstar Billy Graham.”

    To Mike Tyson I hope you boycott this I’ve been a fan my entire life to watch celebrity’s get noticed in this “hall of fame” is a joke. guys that were building blocks for the company don’t get any recognition thats complete bs that’s why guys like drew Carey should get slapped out nd someone should rob his ass for that ring before he pawns it off and goes broke of all the cocaine he’s doing that made him skinny ps fuck you I’ll fuck you til you love me faggot

      You have issues.

      Tyson was part of one of the biggest turning points in WWE history when Austin went over HBK and really ushered in the Attitude era.

      Drew Carey was a joke. Mike Tyson was part of mania 14 in the huge match between Shawn and Austin. Not to mention the huge part he played leading up to mania. You are just some bitter old man more than likely. Get over yourself.

    I'm not a fan of non-wrestling celebrities getting into the HOF but at least Tyson was and is a fan which is more than can be said for the other celebrities that have been inducted. The only reason Vince inducts celebrities into the HOF anyway is to get mainstream attention and publicity.
