Kid Rock Tapped for the WWE Hall of Fame

Kid Rock has been a fixture at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony in recent years, but he’ll have a different kind of hall of fame to focus on next month.

Per Billboard, Rock will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as a part of their celebrity wing, which also includes Snoop Dogg, Pete Rose, Mike Tyson and Arnold Schwarzenegger to name just a handful.

Rock has had a working relationship with the WWE for nearly two decades and has performed at a number of events including WrestleMania 25 and the 2012 installment of WWE’s Tribute to the Troops.  He’s also provided entrance music for The Undertaker (“American Bad Ass”) and Stacy Keibler (cover of ZZ Top’s “Legs.”)
