Update on Honky Tonk Man signing with WWE

Apr 6, 2013 - by Steve Gerweck

The Honky Tonk Man announced on his Facebook page that he has signed a
new multi-year WWE Legends deal, allowing WWE to use his likeness in
merchandise as well as task him with appearances. “I am honored to be back
with the WWE and am very excited to be teaming up with WWE again for some
more Shake, Rattle and Roll,” the self-proclaimed greatest
Intercontinental champion of all time said. “Never say Never in #WWE,” he
later added on Twitter, a phrase that many – if not almost all –
Superstars say whenever they leave the company. Honky Tonk Man wrestled
for the WWE between 1986 and 1991 and then moved to WCW for a few in 1994
before returning to do sporadic appearances for WWE in 1997. He still
holds the record of the longest reigning Intercontinental champion ever in
the WWE, lasting one year, two months, and 27 days, before losing it in 30
seconds to the Ultimate Warrior at SummerSlam 88.
