Celebrity Says He Turned Down the WWE Hall of Fame

– In an interview with The UK Mirror, actor and early headliner Mr. T commented that he turned down an invitation to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame because of the induction of another celebrity, Pete Rose.

“WWE asked me to be in the Hall of Fame and I turned it down. You know why? They put Pete Rose in the wrestling Hall of Fame. This guy can’t even get into his own Hall of Fame. After they put Rose in they came and asked me and I said “You don’t insult me! You don’t put Pete Rose in the Hall of Fame before me! I ain’t going to be a part of that. They put him in and he only did one WrestleMania, and he didn’t even wrestle.”

T also claimed he was the only celebrity to have wrestled at WrestleMania, forgetting about NFL great Lawrence Taylor, who headlined WrestleMania 11’s main event against the late Bam Bam Bigelow. There is also William “The Refrigerator” Perry, who competed in the Wrestlemania 2 NFL Battle Royal and was inducted into the Hall several years ago. And last year, boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. faced off with at WrestleMania 24. T teamed with to defeat Paul Orndorff and at WrestleMania 1 and had a boxing match with Piper at WrestleMania 2. Pete Rose actually appeared at WrestleMania 14, 15 and 16 – one more than Mr. T.
