“His in-your-face style in the studio and on stage has made Kid Rock a big contributor to the soundtrack of the WWE Universe. Several of his songs have been the official themes for WWE pay-per-view events, including “Cocky” and the worldwide hit, “All Summer Long.” Kid Rock’s music has also been entrance music for a select few Superstars. The Undertaker used the 2000 single “American Bad Ass” as he thundered to the ring on his motorcycle, while Kid Rock’s cover of ZZ Top’s hit “Legs” blared through arenas around the world as Stacy Keibler made her way to the squared circle. He’s even brought his incomparable live show to WWE on several occasions, including a May 2000 edition of Monday Night Raw, a stellar performance at the 25th Anniversary of WrestleMania, and a show for America’s armed forces during the 2012 edition of WWE’s most patriotic night of the year, Tribute to the Troops.”
The WWE Hall of Fame induction ceremony will take place on April 6. Kid Rock will join Bill Goldberg, the Dudley Boyz, Ivory, Jeff Jarrett and Hillbilly Jim as the 2018 inductees. Kid Rock marks the ninth time a celebrity has been inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. The list of previous non-wrestler winners includes Snoop Dogg, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Mr. T.
