William Shatner To Be Inducted Into The WWE Hall Of Fame

He will enter the Celebrity Wing as an inductee in the Class Of 2020

WWE have confirmed that William Shatner will be inducted into the Hall Of Fame this year as a member of the Class of 2020. 

Legendary actor Shatner, best known for his portrayal of James T. Kirk, captain of the USS Enterprise in the original 'Star Trek' television series, made a foray into the world of WWE when he appeared as a special guest on Jerry 'The King' Lawler’s 'King’s Court', sending Lawler flying with a Monkey Flip, before returning a week later to be in Bret Hart's corner for a match with Jeff Jarrett. 

Shatner would return to induct his former rival Lawler into the Hall Of Fame in 2007, and was a special guest host of Monday Night Raw in February 2010.

WWE say that Shatner, who will enter the Celebrity Wing, will be officially recognised as a member of the Class of 2020, joining John 'Bradshaw' Layfield, Jushin 'Thunder' Liger, The Bella Twins, The NWO and The British Bulldog. 

The 90-year-old's induction with the Class Of 2020, as well as the Class Of 2021, will be broadcast on the WWE Network across the world on Tuesday 6 April. The promotion are reportedly filming the ceremony this week.
