Kid Rock Has Finally Arrived: He'll Join WWE Wrestling Hall of Fame

Kid Rock Has Finally Arrived: He'll Join WWE Wrestling Hall of Fame

Even more, some even say that Rock's contributions to WWE were never worthy of consideration to begin with. Kid Rock will join Bill Goldberg, the Dudley Boyz, Ivory, Jeff Jarrett and Hillbilly Jim as the 2018 inductees.

That's right, Detroit's chief export and person directly responsible for 14% of the nation's sales of truck nuts, will stand alongside wrestling royalty as a member of the WWE Hall of Fame class of 2018, with the Vince McMahon pro-wrestling conglomerate confirming the news earlier this morning.

The WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will stream live on WWE Network from the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans on April 6.

Kid Rock, who grew up a WWE fan, has performed at several of its events including the 25th WrestleMania in 2009 and Tribute to the Troops in 2012.

Citing more deserving names like Fred Durst, or Cyndi Lauper, fans believe that Kid Rock jumped the Hall of Fame line. Some of the celebrities inducted so far have contributed more than others, but all in all, it's a relatively harmless addition to the annual ceremony.

WWE has announced that musician Kid Rock will be entering the celebrity wing of their Hall of Fame.

Previous celebrity inductees include Snoop Dogg, Pete Rose, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mr. T, Mike Tyson and Donald Trump. Several of his songs have been the official themes for WWE pay-per-view events, including "Cocky" and the worldwide hit, "All Summer Long".
