WWE Hall Of Fame Induction Of Muhammad Ali

Muhammad Ali

Prior to this year’s WrestleMania celebrations in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on April 5, boxing hero Muhammad Ali, also referred to as “The Greatest,” will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2024, it was announced on Monday by international news site Variety.

Ali, an Olympic gold medallist and three-time world heavyweight boxing champion, enthralled viewers everywhere.

His reputation as a prominent personality, artist, and activist extended beyond the realm of sports.

He faced Antonio Inoki in “The War of the Worlds,” an exhibition bout, on June 26, 1976, at Tokyo, Japan’s Nippon Budokan venue.

This incident emphasises Ali’s legacy even more because it is frequently seen as a forerunner to contemporary mixed martial arts.

Ali maintained his affiliation with combat sports even after he announced his retirement from boxing with an outstanding 56-5 record that included 37 knockouts. He was most known for refereeing the main match between Hulk Hogan & Mr. T and “Rowdy” Roddy Piper & “Mr. Wonderful” Paul Orndorff at the first WrestleMania in 1984 as a special guest referee.

Ali’s crucial blow to Piper with his trademark right-hand punch brought the contest back to order and made a lasting impression.

On June 3, 2016, at the age of 74, Ali passed away, ending an era, but his reputation as one of the greatest sportsmen of all time lives on.
