Sami Zayn appears to be behind Cyndi Lauper getting a spot in the WWE Hall Of Fame.
The WWE Superstar tweeted on Thursday that Lauper deserves a spot in the Celebrity Wing of the WWE Hall Of Fame for her major “Rock ‘N’ Wrestling” connection in the 1980s, a movement that helped put WWE on the map as the national wrestling brand in North America.
Zayn tweeted the following yesterday:
As part of the “rock n’ wrestling connection” with MTV in the 80’s, she was CRUCIAL to WWE crossing over into mainstream. Arguably no celebrity more deserving.#InductCyndi

After making the post, Lauper herself and Lance Storm chimed in with some interesting responses.
Storm spoke of a rumor he heard of WWE offering Lauper a spot and her turning it down, which she denies. Check out their Twitter exchange below.
I think she turned it down the year they offered it to her

Not that I remember.

Well, you’d certainly know more than me. Certainly deserving.
