The WWE has announced that longtime WCW superstar Sting will be inducted into the company’s Hall of Fame in April as part of the run-up to Wrestlemania 32.

Executive Vice President Paul Levesque, better known to wrestling fans as Triple H, announced the honor on Monday, saying Sting’s career deserves enshrinement.

“We are truly honored to have Sting take his rightful place in the WWE Hall of Fame. His contributions to our industry are unprecedented and we look forward to celebrating his incredible career with fans all over the world.”

Sting made his WWE debut at last year’s Wrestlemania event, where he was defeated by Triple H, but the 56-year-old former champion has not been able to wrestle for the company since suffering a neck injury during a match against Seth Rollins in September of last year.
