WWE has announced that musician Kid Rock will be entering the celebrity wing of their Hall of Fame.

Kid Rock will be inducted during the Hall of Fame ceremony during Wrestlemania weekend in New Orleans on Friday, April 6.

The late Joe C would be thrilled.

WWE Hall of Famer Kid Rock provides the soundtrack for Stacy Keibler's ring entrance with his cover of ZZ Top's "Legs". Kid Rock will join Bill Goldberg, the Dudley Boyz, Ivory, Jeff Jarrett and Hillbilly Jim as the 2018 inductees. While a fairly obvious attempt to draw extra mainstream attention to WrestleMania weekend each year, the celebrity wing is in theory meant to honor stars from outside the pro wrestling world that have made some type of memorable contribution to WWE history.

Kid Rock has made several special appearances for the WWE as well including Monday Night Raw in 2000, a performance during WrestleMania XXV, and a concert for the armed forces in attendance for Tribute For The Troops in 2012.

"Several of his songs have been the official themes for WWE pay-per-view events, including "Cocky" and the worldwide hit, 'All Summer Long, '" the entertainment company explains online.

Now The Undertaker is back to his older gimmick and has not used a rock song for his theme since 2004.

Previous celebrity inductees include Snoop Dogg, Pete Rose, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mr. T, Mike Tyson and Donald Trump.

The WWE usually likes to induct celebrities that have appeared on their shows in the past to be in their Hall of Fame.
