Arnold Schwarzengger to be celebrity inducted into 2015 WWE Hall of Fame

WWE announced that pop-culture icon Arnold Schwarzenegger will be inducted into the celebrity wing of the WWE Hall of Fame at a ceremony during WrestleMania Week on Saturday, March 28 at SAP Center in San Jose, Calif.

Former Governor of California from 2003-2011 and the star of such blockbuster films as “Predator,” “True Lies,” “Kindergarten Cop” and the wildly successful “Terminator” franchise, Schwarzenegger is a longtime WWE fan dating to the 1970s, appearing at many “Monday Night Raw” and “SmackDown” events through the years.

A seven-time Mr. Olympia winner, he is the founder of the Arnold Schwarzenegger Sports Festival, the world’s largest annual sports weekend, which hosts 200,000 attendees and more than 18,000 of the world’s top athletes. He also appeared at the 2013 WWE Hall of Fame Ceremony at Madison Square Garden, inducting his friend, the Living Legend Bruno Sammartino.

Most recently, Schwarzenegger guest starred on the March 24, 2014 episode of “Monday Night Raw” opposite WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan and WWE Superstar The Miz. Schwarzenegger's decades-long health and fitness crusade is a perfect fit with WWE.

“We are honored to induct Arnold Schwarzenegger into the WWE Hall of Fame,” said WWE Executive Vice President of Talent, Live Events and Creative, Paul Triple H Levesque. “His larger-than-life on- and off-screen presence translated perfectly into the world of WWE, resulting in many memorable moments.”

Schwazenegger is part of the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2015 along with the Macho Man Randy Savage. More HOF honorees to be announced in the coming weeks.
