Los Angeles - Arnold Schwarzenegger is to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.

The 67-year-old actor and former body-builder, who has appeared at many Monday Night 'RAW' events and was presented with a WWE Championship belt on one of the first episodes of WWE SmackDown in 1999, will be honoured for his contributions to wrestling at the annual ceremony during WrestleMania 31 on 28 March in San Jose, California, according to gossip website TMZ.com.

The actor took to Twitter to share the good news with fans:


WWE Executive Vice President of Talent, Live Events and Creative, Paul 'Triple H' Levesque said in a statement: "We are honoured to induct Arnold Schwarzenegger into the WWE Hall of Fame. His larger-than-life on- and off-screen presence translated perfectly into the world of WWE, resulting in many memorable moments."

The Terminator star will join the likes of Mike Tyson, Pete Rose and Donald Trump in the Hall of Fame's celebrity wing.

It is thought that Arnold will be inducted by his close friend and legendary wrestler Bruno Sammartino, who the actor inducted into the Hall of Fame Madison Square Garden in New York City in 2013.

'Macho Man' Randy Savage, who died in 2011, will also be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame during WrestleMania 31 in Santa Clara, California next month.
