Kid Rock will officially join the WWE Hall of Fame after being announced as the celebrity inductee for the 2018 class.
WWE announced the news on Monday via Billboard with Kid Rock being the latest member of the 2018 class that also includes Goldberg, the Dudley Boyz, Jeff Jarrett, Ivory and Hillbilly Jim with the induction ceremony taking place on Friday, April 6 during WrestleMania 34 weekend in New Orleans.
“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,” Kid Rock said about his induction. “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 has been a mainstay with WWE after performing at WrestleMania 25 as well as also making an appearance at a WWE Tribute for the Troops show in 2012.
