Though offering no thoughts on Charlie Hustle’s non-election to the Canadian Baseball Hall Of Fame, Mr. T had harsh words for The Mirror concerning the WWE’s decision to induct Pete Rose into their Celebrity Wing (link culled from Baseball Think Factory).
“WWE asked me to be in the Hall of Fame and I turned it down. You know why? They put Pete Rose in the wrestling Hall of Fame. This guy can’t even get into his own Hall of Fame.”
Speaking during his UK Get Some Nuts tour, he continued: “After they put Rose in they came and asked me and I said “You don’t insult me! You don’t put Pete Rose in the Hall of Fame before me! I ain™t going to be a part of that.”
“They put him in and he only did one WrestleMania, and he didn’t even wrestle.”
As evidenced by the above clip, Rose did make multiple appearances at the WWE’s marquee event, being choke slammed by Kane (aka “The Big Red Machine”) at Wrestlemania XIV, XV and XVI.
