Mike Tyson to be inducted into WWE Hall of Fame



from wwe.com

Boxing legend and pop culture icon “Iron” Mike Tyson will be inducted into the WWE’s 2012 Hall of Fame class on March 31 in Miami, WWE announced to major media markets throughout the nation Monday. Among the most decorated pugilists in history, Tyson established his place in WWE lore in 1998 when he served as a special “outside enforcer” for the WWE Championship main event of WrestleMania XIV between Shawn Michaels and “Stone Cold” Steve Austin.

    Great. Add a rapist and a cannibal into the HOF. Why not induct Benoit while you’re at it? In all seriousness, at least Tyson got a little physical in the ring and was on TV more than one time to do his past stuff with WWE. Even Pete Rose got manhandled. Can Drew Carey say that? Nope. So I’d say Tyson is the most “worthy” of the celebrity inductees thus far.

    Correction on my part….Lawrence Taylor should be inducted too for how physical he got with Bam Bam Bigelow at Wrestlemania XI. Even though he’s a druggie and a sex offender…..he should be commended for his match with Bam Bam.

    “I could feel his muscle tissues collapse under my force. It’s ludicrous these mortals even attempt to enter my realm.” – Mike Tyson

    If Pete Rose is in and Drew Carey then why not Iron Mike.

    It’ll be interesting to see how people react to this one, because everyone hates it when celebrities get inducted into the HOF. However, Tyson was a big part of one of the most important moments in the Attitude Era, and we all know that the IWC (myself included, I guess) has a big hardon for the Attitude Era…

    Mike Tyson and any other celebrity for that fact SHOULD NOT be in the WWE Hall Of Fame simply because they are not WRESTLERS or contributed anything to the sport what so ever. As for Tyson he shouldn’t be inducted into anything other then a prison cell. The guy is a convicted rapist and an animal in his own sport, Tyson shouldn’t be honored he should be put into a paddled cell.

    They need an all clowns section for the HOF…..Flair, Doink, Tyson, Carey and Rose!!!!

    Okay so explain something to me Linda McMahon has political aspirations even though she is no longer working in WWE everybody knows she is affiliated with it and then they induct a convicted rapist into their Hall of Fame. Bad idea and even worse politics…

    I really don’t like celebrities in the HOF, but as long as they are, will someone explain to me why Mr T. isn’t in it. After all, he did main event the first Wrestlemania. For that manner how about Cindi Lauper. There may not be a Wrestlemania without her involvement with Lou Albano.

    I still have my cable TV magazine at home with Stone Cold facing Shawn Michaels and Tyson in the middle. Tyson definitely deserves to be in there even if his personal behavior hasn’t exactly been the best.
