Stacy Keibler is heading for the WWE Hall of Fame.
It has been confirmed via PEOPLE Magazine that Stacy Keibler will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame on March 31st.
Keibler entered the world of professional wrestling after becoming a fan alongside her boyfriend at the time. After winning a contest in 1999, she was hired by World Championship Wrestling as one of their Nitro Girls, and went on to perform as heel valet Miss Hancock.
After WCW closed its doors in 2001, Stacy was hired by WWE and went on to form alliances with The Dudley Boys, Test, Scott Steiner, and later The Hurricane and Rosey. She also had feuds with the likes of Torrie Wilson, Sable, and Candice Michelle.
Speaking to PEOPLE, Keibler admitted she never thought she would get the call to be in the Hall of Fame.
“I never thought I would be in the Hall of Fame, to be honest. I was completely shocked when I got the call. I had tears in my eyes.”
The star revealed that all of her family will be in attendance for her induction, adding that she wants to make sure she doesn’t cry on the big night.
“My husband’s coming, my husband’s family’s coming, my family, my kids. We have friends coming from L.A., from Austin. So it’s really exciting because a lot of these people didn’t get to see me in action.
I get tears in my eyes every time. How am I going to keep it together? I got to keep it together.”
Reflecting on her induction and time in WWE, Keibler said that she will be forever grateful to the fans for making it happen.
“The fans are the ones that made it possible. I owe so much to them for getting me to this point in my career.
I’ve spent time just reflecting, and I feel so lucky to have this extraordinary time with the organization, the community, but most of all the fans And it’s shaped my life, and there’s nothing else that can get me more excited in the exact same way as being live in front of the WWE fans. Their passion is contagious. So I’m just so excited.”
