Mike Tyson Will Be Inducted Into WWE Hall of Fame
Mike Tyson was never officially apart of the WWE, but that isn’t stopping him from joining Wrestling’s Hall of Fame. Tyson, who was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame last year, will soon join the WWE Hall of Fame.
World Wrestling Entertainment announced today that Tyson would be inducted on March 31st at AmericanAirlines Arena, the night before WrestleMania XXVVIII.
“I am honored to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. I was the youngest heavyweight champion of all time, but the most fun I ever had in the ring was with WWE.”
ESPN reports that Tyson appeared on Monday Night Raw in 1998 after he was suspended from boxing for pulling a WWE like move (biting off Evander Holyfield’s ear) in the boxing ring. Tyson fought Stone Cold Steve Austin and was later named the special enforcer for WrestleMania XIV.
Tyson even delivered the knockout blow after Michaels disputed his officiating.
Here are some highlights from WrestleMania 14.
Tyson made another appearance on Monday Night Raw in 2010 in a tag-team match with Chris Jericho, Shawn Michaels and Triple H.
Here’s the video from Monday Night Raw.
Tyson will join the WWE Hall of Fame celebrity ring. Drew Carey, Bob Uecker, Pete Rose, and William “The Refrigerator” Perry are all members of the WWE Hall of Fame.
Edge, The Four Horsemen and Mil Mascaras, will also be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame this March.
