    Seems the first inductees this year will be the original Hart Foundation, Bret, Neidhart & Jimmy Hart

    It's a shame they couldn't have done this before now and neidhart could have gotten to give a speech. The issue of Owen hart mentioned in the link really is one of the saddest of its kind in wrestling and I doubt it will ever be resolved which is a shame as Owen hart deserves to be in the WWE HOF, but there are issues there and perfectly understandable reasons.

    Giving Bret his second ring his ego will love that.


    Could he get a 3rd one with the other Hart foundation as well at some stage.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,301 ✭✭✭✭gerrybbadd


    Each and every member of the 1997 Foundation deserves their place in the HOF. I'm not sure why Davy is getting kept out. Pillman will get there eventually.

    It really is a travesty that Owen's widow continues to do her utmost to keep his legacy somewhat hidden.

    I'd say she has no problem cashing the Royalty checks that arrive each month

    In fairness, she did support Owen's induction into another hall of fame last year (Lou Thesz HOF?) And she even posed for picture with the hall of fame plaque.

    Also, I'm sure being left a widow in your early thirties is not compensated by royalty checks. She has every right to still hold a grudge with WWE.

    Its not just about the grudge she holds against WWE. It's all the fans that love Owen, still to this day, that she's depriving. Fans want to celebrate Owen's life as a wrestler, and this has not been allowed. They want to see him receive the recognition he deserves by being inducted into the HOF.

    Sure, he may have been inducted to the Lou Thesz HOF, but the industry wide standard is the WWE HOF, for better or worse.

    Let's be real, though, the WWE Hall of Fame is a work. It has as much meaning as the Slammys.

    The whole night of the Hall of Fame ceremony is just one big wrestling show. The fans who attend it are fooled into thinking they're at some kind of Oscars gig. You even see some of the fans wearing suits in the crowd. But yet the crowd still behaves like a wrestling audience. Why would Martha Hart want anything to do with that rubbish?

    Health problems over the last few years, I believe Jim had Alztimers ....I don't like the 2 time HOF's thing, like Arn Anderson and the rest of the 4 Horsemen could've got in on their own merits instead of being lumped into 1 induction with Flair and Flair being "2 Time" Hof'er ….they should do tag teams if they had unremarkable singles runs like Dudleyz/Rock and Roll Express and separate if they were big on their own Edge and Christian (will be one) for example

    Danny Davis wasn't an original member but was a member kind of. I don't know if he was ever considered a permanent member.

    DX are announced to go in.


    I didn't see which members I wonder is this there way of putting in Chyna.




    Shawn also gets his second ring to keep him the same as Bret.

    Leaked video here. I see Xpac in it too.

    I think Waltman would be deserving of the HOF actually. He had quite the career.

  • Registered Users Posts: 59,962 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    I guess they didn’t want to give Rude a second ring.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,301 ✭✭✭✭gerrybbadd


    And its official - the whole faction

    Was Rick ever anything but DX's "Insurance Policy" though?

    Rude was a member for me when I think about DX.

    Kane, Tori & Hornswoggle were also members ;)


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,689 ✭✭✭sky88


    For me when i think of DX i think of the names announced there.

    would have liked trips to go in on his own first before DX announced.

    suprised billy going in considering his AEW ties cause you all know what there like


  • Registered Users Posts: 39,244 ✭✭✭✭Itssoeasy


    Ah at least we have one announcement. I was getting worried it wouldn't be a big deal this year.

    Ya, William Gunn was a surprise to me too. He's had a savage career in WWE however, so its deserved.


  • Registered Users Posts: 59,962 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    So who will induct DX?


    Nash and Hall the Kliq members of the NWO which DX was set up to compete with.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 502 ✭✭✭sirmanga


    Seems weird that Triple H will be going in as DX before he's going in on his own.


  • Registered Users Posts: 59,962 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    Steph was also a member.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 502 ✭✭✭sirmanga


    What about Big Dick Johnson?


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,689 ✭✭✭sky88


    Austin maybe feuded with both version of it unless its big kev


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 502 ✭✭✭sirmanga


    It's good that WWE have named which DX members are going in. Otherwise it would be open to interpretation. At least it won't be like when they inducted "The Von Erichs" in 2009. Thereby making Chris Von Erich, who barely wrestled a match in his life and was dead by 21, a WWE Hall of Famer.


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,880 ✭✭✭✭Rock Lesnar


    I think Tyson will induct them

    Looking forward to Mr. Ass giving a shout out to his biggest influence in the business, our own PINKDIVA.

    Funny how Triple H kept waffling on about not wanting youngsters to Google Chyna and see that she was a porn star, and that was his reason to not induct her into the Hall of Fame.

    Yet he personally inducted Mike Tyson into the Hall of Fame. Mike Tyson. A convicted rapist.
