Stacy Keibler Set for WWE Hall of Fame Induction
Stacy Keibler is about to receive the highest honor from WWE. It was announced this week that the former WWE Superstar will be inducted into the company's hall of fame. The ceremony will take place at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles on Friday, one day before WrestleMania 39. Keibler will join a WWE Hall of Fame class that includes Andy Kaufman, The Great Muta and Rey Mysterio.
"I never thought I would be in the Hall of Fame, to be honest," Keibler told PEOPLE. "I was completely shocked when I got the call. I had tears in my eyes." Keibler began her professional wrestling career in 1999 as she was a member of WCW's dance team the Nitro Girls. She worked her way up the ladder in WCW before joining WWE when the latter bought WCW in 2001. Keibler was one of the more popular Superstars of early 2000s despite never winning a title. She ended her run with WWE in 2006 but has made a few appearances over the years, including when she inducted her friend Torrie Wilson into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2019. Here's a look at Keibler and fans reacting to her WWE Hall of Fame induction.

And this fan said: "Anyone that thinks Stacy Keibler isn't deserving of her spot in the HOF just doesn't get sports-entertainment. She did it ALL. Wrestled, managed, danced, hosted, media, modeling, and more across TWO major promotions while being a great face or a dastardly heel. She's earned it."prev
