WWE Hall of Fame: The Final Frontier.
Captain Kirk himself, William Shatner, will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as a member of the 2020 Class. It will take its place in sports and entertainment history during its 2021 WWE Hall of Fame induction ceremony, which airs next Tuesday, April. 6, at Peacock in the US and WWE Network all over the place. Shatner’s induction news was first reported by USA Today…
Shatner is loved by millions around the world for his iconic portrayal of James T. Kirk, Captain of the USS Enterprise, in the original Star Trek television series, as well as in the film series. He also starred in TJ Hooker, hosted Rescue 911, received Emmy and Golden Globe awards for his role as Danny Crane in Boston Legal, and has released numerous oral albums and bestselling books.
He made his first trip to the WWE universe in early 1995 when he made a special guest appearance in Jerry Lawler’s The King, King’s Court. Shatner was not too happy about Lawler’s bullying and sent the “King” flying with a monkey jump. Shatner returned to Raw a week later to be in the corner of Bret “Hit Man” Hart for a duel with Jeff Jarrett. When Road Dogg got too close to the scene, Shatner grabbed him with his big right hand and slammed into the towbar.
The disagreement between Shatner and Lawler ended up under a bridge as Shatner returned to WWE in 2007 to induct The King into the WWE Hall of Fame.
Shatner returned to the red brand as a special guest in February 2010, giving the WWE Universe an unforgettable evening it can, including dramatic interpretations of multiple Superstar entry themes and using his Priceline negotiating skills to resolve disputes. In addition, Shatner was also the narrator on WWE Network’s reality show “WWE Breaking Ground”.
Shatner is currently the host of The Unexplained on the History Channel, which explores the world’s most fascinating and unexplained mysteries. He also stars in the romantic comedy “A Moment of Old Age”, which is now in theaters and is in demand. Shatner also enjoys doing charity work, especially through his annual Hollywood Charity Horse Show, which raises funds for charities for children and veterans.
