TMZ is reporting that WWE will induct Mr. T into the celebrity wing of their Hall of Fame as a member of the Class of 2014.
Vince McMahon is quoted in the report, saying, “His WWE appearances were instrumental in helping to establish WrestleMania as the pop-culture phenomenon it is today.”
Mr. T turned down WWE’s offer to be inducted in 2009. He teamed with Hulk Hogan at Wrestlemania I and faced Roddy Piper in a boxing match at Wrestlemania II.
Mr. T joins Carlos Colon, The Ultimate Warrior, Lita, Jake Roberts and Paul Bearer as 2014 inductees. The 2014 WWE Hall of Fame induction ceremony will take place on Saturday, April 5, 2014 from the New Orleans Arena in New Orleans, LA.
Richard Reacts: A very deserving induction into the celebrity wing and perfect timing with Hogan’s return to the company.
