WWE announced “The Hart Foundation” Bret Hart and Jim Neidhart as entrants in the WWE Hall of Fame’s class of 2019. Read the official announcement at WWE.com. The WWE Hall of Fame ceremony will be held on April 6 in Brooklyn, New York at Barclays Center and will stream live on WWE Network.
Powell’s POV: The WWE website photo shows Bret and Neidhart. Manager Jimmy Hart is not included in the photo, but he is mentioned several times in the article. WWE previously announced DX (Triple H, Shawn Michaels, Chyna, X-Pac, Road Dogg, Billy Gunn), Honky Tonk Man, Torrie Wilson, Harlem Heat members Booker T and Stevie Ray, and Warrior Award winner Sue Aitchison. Dana Warrior will present the Warrior Award, but the presenters for the other entrants have yet to be announced.
