Variety has reported that Andy Kaufman is set to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame class of 2023,
Kaufman will be inducted alongside this year’s fellow honorees that currently include Rey Mysterio and The Great Muta and possibly Stacey Keibler.
Kaufman is best known for his career on the stage and screen, most famously starring as Latka Gravas in the hit sitcom “Taxi” from 1978-1983. He made his mark on the world of professional wrestling, however, when he declared himself the Inter-Gender Wrestling Champion of the World, offering money to any woman who could pin him as part of his act. This famously led to a feud with fellow WWE Hall of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler in the Continental Wrestling Association in Memphis, TN.
It has not yet been decided who will induct Kaufman into the Hall of Fame. Lawler has frequently attended the Hall of Fame ceremonies over the years, but he suffered a stroke in February and it is unclear if he will be healthy enough to attend.
