This Hall of Fame is loaded. You can't really question why Tyson belongs. His appearances leading into and at WrestleMania 14 helped launch the Attitude Era and had a big hand in saving the WWF from bankruptcy, helping turn the corner into their eventual victory in the Monday Night Wars.
Who should induct Mike Tyson? Cold Stone! Cold Stone!

That didn't stop the International Boxing Hall of Fame from inducting Mike Tyson on the first ballot. And that was an actual election by people who considered that, not Vince McMahon trying to agree to a contract to get him to appear.

Tyson has done a lot to rehabilitate his image of late. He has gone from the most controversial figure in sports to your silly uncle. The Hangover has helped him a lot in that regard and if its good enough for the Boxing HOF to put him in as a first ballot which actually has a building and cred than its ok for the WWE to do it. Also if you haven't seen his Herman Cain from the Funny or Die debate, fricking hysterical.
I don't know if I'd call Hulkamania part deux a failure - that was going to have a limited shelf life anyway. (I'm not arguing the other three, though I believe the Invasion and Austin turn are linked failures.)
