Does Kid Rock deserve to be in the WWE Hall of Fame?
Say what you will about Kid Rock's politics, the dude made bangers. He was a steady partner with the WWE and deserves every bit of recognition he gets. Here is the company with more:
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. For his huge contributions to the sound of WWE, Kid Rock will receive the great honor of induction into the WWE Hall of Fame.
I guess the bar to be in the WWE Hall of Fame is to be a Trump supporter. This is a disgusting induction for the WWE that reeks of politics and stinks of disrespect. There are have been other artists that have been more instrumental in the success of the company, well before Kid Rock leased his tired act to the WWE, who deserve this honor more than he does.
Cyndi Lauper has not been honored for bringing professional wrestling into the mainstream by performing at the first Wrestlemania. Lemmy from legendary rock band "Motörhead" hasn't been recognized for writing and performing some of the most iconic WWE themes. And, more importantly, legendary Jim Johnston still hasn't been inducted into the Hall of Fame for composing the signature sounds of the WWE for over 32 years.
Kid Rock is just being honored because of who he supports, not what he's done. He doesn't deserve to be in the WWE Hall of Fame.
Lemmy, Cyndi Lauper and Muhammad Ali aren't in the WWE Hall of Fame.
