Kid Rock will be inducted in the WWE Hall of Fame during WrestleMania 34 weekend, in a ceremony set to take place on Friday, April 6th. Rock has performed at several WWE events throughout his musical career, including WrestleMania 25 in 2009 and Tribute To The Troops in 2012. He called his induction a “real honor,” telling Billboard, “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. 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.”
Kid Rock will be inducted into the celebrity wing of the WWE Hall of Fame, which includes Snoop Dogg, Mike Tyson, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Drew Carey, Bob Uecker and Pete Rose. The April 6th induction ceremony will stream live on WWE Network from the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans, with WrestleMania 34 taking place two days later on April 8th at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. Rock's latest album, called Sweet Southern Sugar, came out last November. He's currently in the final two weeks of his “American Rock 'N' Roll Tour,” which pulls into Chicago on Friday (March 16th). Rock was forced to change its name from “The Greatest Show On Earth” after being sued by the owners of the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus.
