WWE has announced that The Honky Tonk Man will be inducted by Jimmy Hart.
Hart managed Honky Tonk Man for most of his time in the World Wrestling Federation in the 1980s. This may also explain why Hart is not part of the induction with The Hart Foundation. As previously noted, Bret “The Hitman” Hart and Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart are going to be inducted without their manager.
On Friday, WWE announced that Hulk Hogan would be inducting his best friend Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake.
Here is the complete list of inductees for 2019:
The Honky Tonk Man (inducted by Jimmy Hart)
Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake
Sue Aitchison (Warrior Award)
Professor Toru Tanaka
Joseph Cohen (founder of MSG Network)
Hisashi Shinma (former WWF President)
Playboy Buddy Rose
