Other members of the 2011 WWE Hall of Fame Class include â€œThe Heartbreak Kidâ€ Shawn Michaels, â€œHacksawâ€ Jim Duggan, â€œBulletâ€ Bob Armstrong and the original WWE Diva, Sunny.
Carey established his place in WWE history as a surprise entrant in the 2001 Royal Rumble. However, Careyâ€™s fortunes quickly turned, when the massive WWE Superstar Kane entered the ring, prompting Carey to eliminate himself from the match.

Carey will lead a cast of improvisation all-stars, including Ryan Styles, Colin Mochrie, Greg Proops, Brad Sherwood and Kathy Kinney, in the new series â€œDrew Careyâ€™s Improv-A-Ganza,â€ which premieres April 11 at 8 pm ET/PT on GSN.
