Baltimore County's Own Stacy Keibler to be Inducted into WWE Hall of Fame


BALTIMORE COUNTY - Baltimore County is full of famous residents, soon to include a WWE Hall of Fame member.

Stacy Keibler, 43, a retired pro wrestler, model, and actress, has been announced for the WWE hall of fame, class of 2023.

Keibler was born in Rosedale and attended St. Clement Mary Hofbauer School before graduating from Towson University. She went on to become a cheerleader for the Baltimore Ravens.

Her entertainment career started in 2000 when she won a contest to join WCW's The Nitro Girls. WWE says they recognized her "sheer star power" and transformed Keibler into Ms. Hancock, a "provocative, business-suit-wearing manager who was all Standards and Practices."

Keibler left WWE in 2006 and went on to have a prolific career in Hollywood, reaching the finals in Season 2 of ABC's Dancing with the Stars. The Baltimore County native has since graced the covers of magazines, walked red carpets, and featured in shows such as "How I Met Your Mother," "Chuck," and "Psych."

In an interview with PEOPLE Magazine, Keibler said she was shocked and thrilled to join the ranks of legendary entertainers such as Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan, and Stone Cole Steve Austin.

"I never thought I would be in the Hall of Fame, to be honest," Keibler told PEOPLE. "When she told me, I screamed, and tears were in my eyes, and I was completely overwhelmed with just gratefulness."

Along with Keibler, WWE has announced that Rey Mysterio, The Great Muta, and late comedian Andy Kaufman will also be included in the 2023 Hall of Fame class.
