Honky Tonk Man signs WWE Legends deal


The Honky Tonk Man announced on his Facebook page that he has signed a new multi-year WWE Legends deal, allowing WWE to use his likeness in merchandise as well as task him with appearances.

“I am honored to be back with the WWE and am very excited to be teaming up with WWE again for some more Shake, Rattle and Roll,” the self-proclaimed greatest Intercontinental champion of all time said.

“Never say Never in #WWE,” he later added on Twitter, a phrase that many – if not almost all – Superstars say whenever they leave the company.

Honky Tonk Man wrestled for the WWE between 1986 and 1991 and then moved to WCW for a few in 1994 before returning to do sporadic appearances for WWE in 1997.

He still holds the record of the longest reigning Intercontinental champion ever in the WWE, lasting one year, two months, and 27 days, before losing it in 30 seconds to the Ultimate Warrior at SummerSlam 88.
