The biggest Hall of Fame snub this side of Pete Rose is finally being resolved: Mr. T will be the celebrity inductee into the WWE Hall of Fame in April, the WWE announced Monday.
Mr. T turned down a Hall of Fame spot in 2009 but has since resolved the problems he had with the company.
Mr. T, who became a pop culture icon following appearances in “Rocky III” and “The A-Team,” was instrumental in increasing the popularity of WrestleMania. He appeared in the first WrestleMania as a partner of Hulk Hogan against Rowdy Roddy Piper and Mr. Wonderful. He also beat Piper in a boxing match at WrestleMania 2.
Mr. T also served as a special judge in WWF and WCW events at various points during his career.
The ceremony will be aired on WWE Network on April 5, according to TMZ.
