Stacy Keibler will be this year’s female inductee into the WWE Hall of Fame Class.
As first announced by PEOPLE, Keibler will take part in the 2023 class and she was interviewed about the announcement.
“I never thought I would be in the Hall of Fame, to be honest,” she tells PEOPLE. “I was completely shocked when I got the call. I had tears in my eyes. 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.
“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.”
Keibler started her wrestling career in WCW as a member of the Nitro Girls under the name of Skye. She is also a former Baltimore Ravens football cheerleader for the state of Maryland. In 2021 during the WCW/WWF Invasion, Keibler made her way over tO WWF and worked with WWF/WWE for the next five years before moving on in 2006. She had various storylines including Mr. McMahon’s personal assistant, an alliance with Test, the Duchess of Dudleyville, and Super Stacy just to name a few.

Congratulations to Stacy Keibler for her induction!
