Fans won't be surprised that this week's WWE-related social media featured the eclectic mix that is Mr. T, Scooby Doo, Psych and Daniel Bryan. WWE rolls with the weird and the famous. 

Soon-to-be Hall of Famer Mr. T sparked jokes, Scooby Doo inspired a meme and USA Network and WWE shared its stars with each other, all of which spread by way of Instagram, viral videos and Twitter. Wrestlers didn't get shut out of the list, though.

The week's WWE social media also featured Randy Orton, Bryan and the infrequently mentioned David Otunga. 

Whether or not one enjoys seeing Orton carry the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, it's hard to not marvel at the photo of him WWE posted on Instagram.

The drastic angle, the colors and Orton's reflection shining on the stage make for an image worth savoring.

A less artistic shot caught Bryan on his way to the ambulance. The Instagram photo is powerful, though, building on the drama of Triple H assaulting him on Monday's Raw.

Using social media to add layers to its storylines is one of WWE's strengths. This sight of Bryan didn't make it to Raw, but it shows up here, resonating through the screen. 

Thanks to him and a swarm of fans hijacking Raw last week, Bryan also made it onto the WWE's newest countdown video.

The compilation ranks the top 10 most unexpected arrivals. The ECW Invasion, The Outsiders going to WCW and Lex Luger appearing on Nitro all made the cut.

There is even more than usual to debate about this ranking. Is Bryan's moment better than Nexus' debut or are we just overvaluing the present?

These countdown clips have become a regular part of WWE fans' diet as have YouTube mashups from Dalyxman and Eric Minnesota.

The latest entrance theme mashup combines three wrestlers that aren't often put in the same sentence, much less the same song.

Minnesota merged Sin Cara, David Otunga and Finlay's entrance music for an appetizing mix. While not as fun as the Evolution mashup, it's still worth checking out.

A less surprising combination at this point is WWE and Psych. USA Network broadcasts both Raw and the comedy detective show and has not shied away from trading talent between the two.

The Miz, Big Show and John Cena have all made guest appearances on the show. Psych stars have made their way onto Raw as well.

That relationship continued when Nikki and Brie Bella guest starred in a recent Psych episode. The following video gives fans a behind-the-scenes look at The Bella Twins being turned into nightmare material.

Evidently, transforming attractive women into scarred zombie vampires is no easy process.

Making things right with the WWE Hall of Fame has taken a much longer time. The Hall of Fame is headed the right way, though. The company has recently added names to that institution that should have been there a long time ago, including Jake Roberts, Bob Backlund and Bruno Sammartino.

A certain mohawked, gold chain-wearing star finally got his name called this week too.

WWE is set to induct Mr. T into the Hall of Fame on the night before WrestleMania. He joins a celebrity wing that already includes Donald Trump and Mike Tyson.

News of the former A-Team star entering the Hall led to a number of amusing Tweets about him.

In one case, the folks behind the History of WWE Twitter account pulled out an old video of Mr. T singing in shorts. It's a smile-inducing reminder of what the '80s were all about.

WWE Creative Humor had fun with Mr. T's Hall of Fame nod as well.

CM Punk fans won't be thrilled about the joke, but it's true. In the headlining WrestleMania category, Mr. T leads Punk 1-0.

Punk, though, has a huge lead in the mic moments department. Leave it to Wrestling Memes to combine one of Punk's catchphrases with the upcoming Scooby Doo! WrestleMania Mystery animated movie.

Only WWE fans who are familiar with Scooby's trademark speech patterns will get the joke, but that's not as niche an audience as it seems.

Scooby heads to Raw next week in Brooklyn, N.Y. Arnold Schwarzenegger will be there as well, making for WWE's latest odd mix.
