Andy Kaufman to be inducted into the WWE HOF

Andy Kaufman to be inducted into the WWE HOF
20 Mar
Not in Hall of Fame

Wrestlemania is coming fast and furious, and we now know our third entrant to the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2023, which is Andy Kaufman.

Kaufman was a popular actor and comedian, who was the breakout star of the sitcom, Taxi.  Always enamoured with pro wrestling, Kaufman incorporated intergender wrestling into his act, and worked that into a money-making angle in Memphis with Jerry “The King” Lawler, that would bleed across Saturday Night Live and Late Night With David Letterman.  

We assume that it will be Lawler who will be doing the induction.

This is long overdue, and when the WWE first added a celebrity wing, this is the man who should have spearheaded it.  

It will be a posthumous induction, as Kaufman passed aay from cancer in 1983.
