He joins Goldberg, The Dudley Boyz, Ivory, Jeff Jarrett, Hillbilly Jim and Warrior Award recipient Jarrius “JJ” Robertson among those being honored that night.
The Kid Rock has made several contributions for the company and continues to do so with his song “New Orleans” set to be the official show for the Grandest stage, next month.
Kid Rock was a special guest at Wrestlemania 25, where he performed live in Houston in front of a jam packed arena.
The star has made several more appearances for the company with the memorable ones being in a Monday Night RAW episode in May 2000 and a key appearance at 2012 edition of Tribute To The Troops.
The most notable contribution by the star was the usage of his single “American Badass” as the theme song of the Undertaker during his gimmick as a biker. Apart from that, his song “Legs” was used as diva Stacy Keibler’s theme right through the Attitude Era.
The induction of Kid Rock is a truly deserving one considering his contributions over the years for the company.
The line-up for the Hall Of Fame seems complete with the addition of the celebrity. The ceremony is scheduled to take place at the Smoothie King Centre on April 6.
