Hart Foundation to be inducted into WWE Hall of Fame

Two members of the Hart Foundation will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame over WrestleMania 35 weekend.

WWE confirmed via Yahoo Sports today that Bret Hart & Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart will be inducted into their Hall of Fame on Saturday, April 6.

“It was very emotional for me,” Bret told Yahoo Sports. “It really means a lot to me and I think it would mean a lot to my late tag partner, who would be really honored to be in the Hall of Fame. I think we both were really proud of our work as a team. I had hoped for years that we would get inducted together and get to go on stage together, but that’s not going to happen now. Emotionally, I feel really proud and I’m glad to get a chance to speak for Jim and I know he’ll be listening.”

Natalya tweeted: "GRIT. DETERMINATION. PASSION. THAT’S WHAT BUILDS A FOUNDATION. CONGRATULATIONS DADDY & @brethart ... YOU. DESERVE. IT. #wwehalloffame"

Though he was originally reported as being inducted with the Hart Foundation, Jimmy Hart wasn't included in today's announcement. Jimmy was inducted individually in 2005.

Bret joins Ric Flair, Shawn Michaels, and Booker T on the list of two-time WWE Hall of Famers. Michaels is being inducted as part of D-Generation X this year, while Booker T and Stevie Ray are being inducted as Harlem Heat.

This year's Hall of Fame ceremony is taking place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. D-X (Michaels, Triple H, Chyna, X-Pac, Road Dogg & Billy Gunn), Honky Tonk Man, Torrie Wilson, Harlem Heat, and Bret & Neidhart have been announced for the Hall of Fame class, and longtime WWE employee Sue Aitchison will receive the Warrior Award.
