Dead Crow 370 Posted June 21, 2007 Share Posted June 21, 2007 World Wrestling Entertainment's Vince McMahon was among the names announced as being honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2008, The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce Walk of Fame Committee announced today. McMahon will receive a special ceremony and a permanent star on the Walk of Fame, which runs three and a half miles down the sidewalk of Hollywood Boulevard. The date of the ceremony was not announced. McMahon will be honored under the Television category, for his contribution to the broadcast television industry. There are five different categories an individual (including fictional characters, like Kermit the Frog and Mickey Mouse) can be honored under, one for each point of the star. To be honored on the Walk of Fame, the honoree must agree to attend a presentation ceremony within five years of selection. A $25,000 fee must be paid to the Hollywood Historic Trust which oversees the Walk of Fame. The Trust uses the $25,000 towards costs of the star's installment and security at the ceremony, among other related costs. Expect World Wrestling Entertainment to make a major deal out of the ceremony, including an appearance from "beyond the grave" of the "deceased" McMahon. Stolen from UKFF.

Like him or not, he's still the most successful wrestling promoter ever and has produced an extremely successful and long-running TV show in Raw.
