WWE has announced that Hillbilly Jim will be inducted into the Hall of Fame by Jimmy Hart. Read the official announcement at WWE.com.
Powell’s POV: Jim said he wanted Hulk Hogan to do the honors, but he’s getting Hogan’s righthand man instead. Hart even appeared with Hogan at the premiere of the HBO documentary on Andre the Giant this week. The WWE Hall of Fame ceremony will be held on Friday in New Orleans, Louisiana at Smoothie King Center.
