Muhammad Ali Revived as He Joins WWE Hall of Fame Induction

Wrestling fans can expect a stunner from WWE in the world of sports entertainment.

Muhammad Ali, a boxing superstar, will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in April, despite already being a member of the Boxing Hall.

According to TMZ, the renowned boxer will be inducted with Paul Heyman, Bull Nakano, and the US Express.

“Known simply as ‘The Greatest,'” the WWE said in a statement at the time, “Ali’s influence transcended sports as his work as an activist, artist, and personality established him as one of the most renowned figures in the entire world.”

Ali rose to prominence on the WWE stage, most known for an exhibition fight against Antonio Inoki in Japan in June 1976. The event, billed “The War of the Worlds,” finished in a 15-round draw and was broadcast to about 33,000 viewers at Shea Stadium in Queens, NY.

The late Ali, who passed away in 2016 at the age of 74, had a big impact in WWE, including serving as a special guest referee at WrestleMania 1984.

In the main event, which included Hulk Hogan, Mr. T, “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, and Paul Orndorff, Ali delivered a punch to Piper.

His induction into the WWE Hall of Fame is set on April 5 at Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center, with his wife, Lonnie Ali, expected to speak.
