The 2021 WWE Hall of Fame will have a celebrity inductee as William Shatner will be part of this year's class.

He joins a class that includes Molly Holly, Eric Bischoff, Kane, The Great Khali and Rob Van Dam.

Known best for his roles on Star Trek, T.J. Hooker, Boston Legal, and various commercials, the 90-year-old has been involved with WWE since a 1995 episode of Raw. He made his debut on Jerry Lawler's talk show segment, getting physical with "The King" in giving him a monkey flip after things became heated.

The week after, he cornered fellow Canadian countryman Bret Hart in a Raw match against Jeff Jarrett and got physical again, this time with "Road Dogg" Jesse James. In 2010, he was the guest host for an episode of Raw.

Shatner inducted Lawler into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2007.

The ceremony for both the 2020 and 2021 inductees is being filmed this week for air next Tuesday on WWE Network/Peacock as part of a week of activities for WrestleMania 37.
