Mr. T was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame last night (05.04.14).

The former 'A-Team' star - who became involved in wrestling in 1985 when he was Hulk Hogan's tag-team partner at the first ever WrestleMania event - was honoured alongside wrestling greats at the ceremony in New Orleans.

He was inducted by iconic WWE announcer Mean Gene Okerlund and used his acceptance speech to pay a heartfelt tribute to his mother.

Taking to the stage at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans, Mr. T described is as an ''honour'' not only to be entered into the Hall of Fame, but to praise his mum for all she did for him.

He said: ''Tonight, as you honour me along with the other Hall of Famers, please allow me to honour and pay tribute to my dear mother, who I love so very much.''

He added: ''Now, my story and background is not that unique. My upbringing is not so different from many others. But who knows?

''Somebody might be inspired and maybe so wayward teenager just might find his way back home.

''That's why I want to talk about my mother. I thank god for my mother - because I have seven brothers and four sisters, and my mother raised all of us by herself.''

The other inductees were Paul Bearer, Razor Ramon, Lita, Ultimate Warrior, Carlos Colón and Jake 'The Snake' Roberts.
