- TMZ reports that boxing legend Mike Tyson will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame from Miami, Florida this year during WrestleMania 28 weekend.

Tyson told TMZ, “I am honored to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. I was the youngest heavyweight champion of all time, but the most fun I ever had in the ring was with WWE.”

Tyson hosted RAW last year but his most famous appearance with WWE came back in 1998 when he had a confrontation with Steve Austin on RAW before being the special enforcer for Austin vs. Shawn Michaels at WrestleMania.

Look for Tyson to be officially announced on tonight’s RAW Supershow. He will join Edge, The Four Horsemen and Mil Mascaras in the 2012 Hall of Fame.

    Best celebrity to put in.

    If anything (keyword being IF) WWE should have a Celeb wing then it might be more understandable

  • Jason

    At least William Perry & Mr T COMPETED in matches (Mania I & a boxing match at II for Mr T and The battle royal at II for The Fridge). Drew was what in a Rumble and really didn’t do squat and eliminated himself.

  • KpNuttzLol

    Wow. Owen Hart and Benoit probably will never get admitted a spot in the Hall Of Fame despite their dedication yet somebody as controversial as Tyson will. I understand he is an accomplished boxer but this just seems to be a major screw up :(

    @CC almost everyone in america knows that was BS

    @ Gary Well I felt exactly the same way about Drew Carey, and every other celebrity (Pete Rose, Bob Uecker, William Perry and so on). It’s not that I don’t like him because I do, I just don’t think he should go into the WWE’s version that’s all especially when those names I used for example haven’t even been considered. Any other HOF like say in boxing for example, yeah sure, but WWE’s? no.

  • thomas

    what a asshole he should not even be thought of being placed in the HOF come on I feel the same way as Diesel keep him out of this

  • thomas

    Mike It seems he did nothing for the wresting world so why should he be

  • Gary

    diesel, you forgot the like of drew carey lol…i think over the clebs this one had a good reason, the him and austin thing was pretty big back in the day and i’d rather see Mike Tyson in HOF then Drew Carrey

  • Diesel

    I respect Tyson for what he’s done in the world of boxing and without question he WAS one of the best, BUT I don’t think he should go into the WWE Hall Of Fame. Any other HOF certainly without question, but not WWE’s. Especially when there are so may big names in wrestling that haven’t been inducted yet like Randy Savage, Davey Boy Smith, Ron Simmons, Vader & Jake Roberts for example.

    And just incase you can’t understand what I’m saying, I brought a little sign language for ya!

    Hey, if you are gonna induct anyone in the PG era, it might as well be a convicted rapist.

  • davey zoo

    If they have to have celebs in HOF then this is the right sort of person, along with Mr T, to go in. This years is looking good so far. IMO.
