WWE Rumors: The Hart Foundation to be inducted into WWE Hall of Fame
- The WWE Hall of Fame is going to get a little more pink and black among its inductees.
What's the story?
PWInsider [via Ringsidenews.com] are reporting that the first iteration of the Hart Foundation, including Bret Hart, Jim 'the Anvil' Neidhart and manager Jimmy Hart, will all be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.
In case you missed it . . .
The Hart Foundation was one of the best tag teams in the world in the late 1980s and the early 1990s.
They did disband in the early 1990s and Bret Hart would go on to be one of the best wrestlers ever. Neidhart would bounce around with numerous gimmicks but never reached the level of success as a singles star that Hart did.
Jimmy Hart is often mentioned in the conversations of greatest managers of all time due to his loudmouth nature and track record of managing greatest wrestlers in the business.
The heart of the matter
PWInsider reported that the group will be inducted as a trio including manager Jimmy Hart, but without part-time member 'Dangerous' Danny Davis.
The tag team is one of the most memorable of all time due to Bret Hart's technical prowess and Jim Neidhart's magnetic personality.
Their finishing move, the Hart Attack, is still used by many teams throughout the professional wrestling business.
Since the Anvil passed away during the summer of 2018, it makes plenty of sense to induct him into the Hall of Fame. His death was also a major storyline for Natalya during the summer.
Even though there have been a few versions with the same name over the years, the trio of Hart, Neidhart and Jimmy Hart were the first and most influential.
While the faction with Brian Pillman, the Anvil, Owen Hart and Davey Boy Smith was influential during its run, the first version was ultimately the best version.
Natalya is basically the spiritual and physical successor of the group since she is the lone member of the family in WWE.
While the other versions of the faction were successful to varying degrees, it's hard to beat the trio that started it all.
A new version of the group is currently among the top wrestlers in Major League Wrestling. That trio boast the ultra-impressive but potentially volatile Teddy Hart, Brian Pillman, Jr. and Davey Both Smith Jr.
