So Drew Carey's In The WWE Hall Of Fame Now: That's Pretty Weird

Drew Carey was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame's 2011 class at Philips Arena Saturday night. But why? He's not even from Marietta! His montage presented his wrestling credentials: he made a cameo in a Royal Rumble. Jerry Lawler made a Sports! joke about Carey: "Just like LeBron James, he left Cleveland because the price was right."

Kane inducted Carey. I didn't know this guy knew how to talk. I thought that was his whole thing. Kane compared beating Carey in that Royal Rumble to The Undertaker going 19-0 at WrestleMania. Spoiler alert! I guess the story here is Kane's still mad at Carey for stealing his Royal Rumble shine. That's gotta suck so bad.

Now we're listening to Kane talk about "the celebrity wing" of the Hall of Fame. This is the weirdest moment of my life. Drew Carey has lost weight, and everybody's booing him because he IS NOT EVEN A PRO WRESTLER, Y'ALL! "I'm skinny, I'm good-looking, I'm rich -- boo all you want. I hope next year they induct Larry The Cable Guy." Georgia would be way less mad about that, I think.

After talking about how hard wrestling is, Carey exited to cheers. The man just won this crowd so hard.
