"I truly believe that's when wrestling became sports entertainment when we involved this Hollywood actor [Andy Kaufman]," said Lawler. "Vince McMahon even told me he was jealous that we got Andy Kaufman to come to Memphis. Andy actually approached Vince Sr. with the idea to wrestle females on his show and he was hesitant. That's how I got hooked up with Andy, just by a stroke of luck... He definitely deserves to be in the Hall of Fame."
