William Shatner Is Going into Outer Space Next Month

William Shatner is going to ride Jeff Bezos’ rocket into orbit next month.  And he’ll film his flight aboard the Blue Origin rocket for a documentary.

At 90 years old, that’ll make him the oldest person ever to go to space.  The previous record was just set back in July, when 82-year-old Wally Funk rode Bezos’ giant phallic-shaped ship.

Obviously, all your “Star Trek” “where no man has gone before” jokes are valid here.  But one website pointed out another interesting angle:  Shatner will be the first WWE Hall of Famer in space.

And this comes after we’ve also had a WWE Hall of Famer as our president.  We live in interesting times, my friends.
