Finally confirming a rumour doing the rounds for the past few months, WWE have announced, via Yahoo Sports, that legendary tag team The Hart Foundation will be inducted into this year's Hall of Fame.

Bret 'Hitman' Hart and Jim 'The Anvil' Neidhart - but notably, not manager Jimmy Hart, as tattle had previously suggested - will join the class of 2019 on Saturday 6 April at Brooklyn's Barclays Center. Hart, alongside fellow honourees Shawn Michaels and Booker T, will become a two-time Hall of Famer at the event.

The names, it seems, are drying up. Ric Flair became the first man given a second ring back in 2012, when he was inducted for a second time as part of the Four Horsemen.

The originally villainous Hart Foundation began their successful WWE run back in 1985, twice winning championship gold in the company before Bret broke out as a major singles star. Despite his career with the promotion ending in bitter acrimony, his major contributions to the business were honoured at 2006's Hall of Fame ceremony.

Jim Neidhart passed away in August 2018 at the age of 63-years-old. Daughter Natalya continues to perform for WWE, and is the most likely candidate to induct her father.

Benjamin was born in 1987, and is still not dead. He variously enjoys classical music, old-school adventure games (they're not dead), and walks on the beach (albeit short - asthma, you know). He's currently trying to compile a comprehensive history of video game music, yet denies accusations that he purposefully targets niche audiences. He's often wrong about these things.
