In an interview with Chris Smith at the UK’s Mirror, Mr. T talked about rejecting WWE’s invitation to induct him in to the Hall of Fame. He apparently felt slighted when they chose Pete Rose to be the first celebrity inductee. Or, as he put it:
“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 ainâ€™t going to be a part of that.”
