Mr. T was instrumental in the launch of WWE in the mid 80s and until now has not been recognized by them, but we need not “pity” him anymore.
Reports came out today stating that the 61-year-old actor would be honored in the WWE Hall of Fame on a taping that will be aired on April 5th.
“His WWE appearances were instrumental in helping to establish WrestleMania as the pop-culture phenomenon it is today,” Vince McMahon told TMZ.
The former A-Team star not only fought on WWE in the 80s but teamed up with Hulk Hogan for the inaugural WrestleMania event at Madison Square Garden against “Rowdy” Roddy Piper and “Mr. Wonderful” Paul Orndorff, a fight which he won.
This is great news for Mr. T who has been dealing with recent legal trouble. Earlier this month, word got out that he was allegedly being sued by an alleged illegitimate son for emotional scarring and abandonment and that reportedly caused him to join a gang.
