Kid Rock is headed to the World Wrestling Entertainment’s Hall Of Fame for his music being a signature part of events over the years, according to Detroit News Monday.
“@KidRock has lent his signature sound to many @WWE events over the years. His support of our Superstars, events and commitment to our troops has been unwavering. For that and more, welcome to the celebrity wing of #WWEHOF,” the COO of the WWE Paul Michael Levesque, also known as Triple H, posted on Instagram.
“Every time I go to a WWE event I always have a good time; there is nothing like it and no better fans in the world,” Rock told Billboard. “The Hall of Fame ceremony will be a fun night and it will be great to see everyone again. I have so much respect for what those guys and girls do. I’m grateful to WWE for letting me be a part of WrestleMania weekend.”
The 47-year-old rocker will be inducted at the 2018 ceremony next month in New Orleans at the Smoothie King Center, two nights ahead of the big WrestleMania event.
Previous celebrity inductees include Snoop Dogg, Pete Rose, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mr. T, Mike Tyson and Donald Trump.
Many of the “Cowboy” singer’s songs have been part of the WWE events, including “American Bad Ass,”
“Lonely Road of Faith,” and his cover of ZZ Top’s “Legs.”
