NBC Sports Chicago is reporting that former Chicago Bears athlete and WCW wrestler Steve “Mongo” McMichael will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

McMichael joins fellow Seniors category finalists Randy Gradishar & Art Powell, who were all voted on individually by a 50-person selection committee.

The committee narrowed the finalists down from a group of 12, who will stay under consideration for next year. Each finalist required at least 80% approval.

McMichael’s wife Misty states he was informed about his status in August 2023.

A petition and letter-writing campaign to get McMichael into the Hall of Fame began in 2022. The former WCW wrestler has been battling ALS for three years now.

In a statement, a spokesperson for McMichael said, The beloved Super Bowl XX Champion is battling ALS, which has progressed to the point of leaving McMichael paralyzed from the neck down, unable to speak, breathe or eat on his own. The hope of being inducted into the Hall of Fame has sustained Steve throughout his three-year fight against the debilitating and cruel disease.”
