Yes , I agree Kondor. Koloff was a staple of a true villain. Former heavyweight champ and tag champ with nephew Nikita. Time to get the Russian Bear in there.

Bit too early for them to say and on top of that WWE would've told them that they can't announce for a while if that was the case.

That's it I am calling bullshit for the same reasons as you.

If they have let the cat out of the bag when they shouldn't have, I actually wouldn't blame E for saying they are no longer putting her in.

She can do the token double of woman and dead person.

https://www.wwe.com/shows/wwe-hall-of-fame/wwe-hall-of-fame-2019/article/dx-wwe-hall-of-fame-2019-inductee

HBK a 2-time Hall of Famer, huh? I suppose this is a good way to get Chyna and X-Pac in without having too much controversy over the induction.

Not that I have a huge problem with it, but I wonder if/when Triple H will go in on his own now? Seems like he'd be a headliner of some year, doesn't he? Or do you think Chyna will be the women's inductee, New Age Outlaws the tag team, Triple H the headliner, and X-pac one of the mid-card guys? And that leave Shawn, uh... hmmm... nope seems like they'll all go in during one induction, doesn't it?

Well this is probably the only way that Chyna makes it into the hall of fame she was never gonna go in any other way and with her passing on they dont even have to mention her much.

they already seem to have mentioned her loads. doesn't seem like they're now going to still take the "first results that come up on a google search" excuse anymore.

Quote WWE announced that the Honky Tonk Man will be inducted into the company's Hall of Fame, Class of 2019.

BREAKING: As first reported by @CBSSports, @OfficialHTM is the next inductee into the @WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2019! #WWEHOF https://t.co/1b7V1uLqLL

— WWE (@WWE) February 26, 2019

He’s cool, he’s cocky, he’s bad, and now, he’s a WWE Hall of Famer.

The Honky Tonk Man, the longest-reigning Intercontinental Champion in WWE history, is the latest inductee in the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2019. The news was first reported by CBS Sports. The 2019 WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony takes place on Saturday, April 6, the eve of WrestleMania 35, at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. Tickets for the ceremony are available now.

With slicked-back hair and long sideburns reminiscent of a certain rock ‘n’ roll icon, The Honky Tonk Man first arrived on the scene in WWE in 1986 with a wide-eyed smile on his face, trying to earn the adulation of the WWE Universe. But WWE fans didn’t quite take to the Elvis lookalike, despite the stamp of approval from Hulk Hogan, as they jeered the newcomer relentlessly. A frustrated Honky Tonk Man called for a vote of confidence from the WWE Universe, and when the results came back overwhelmingly negative, the rockabilly wrestler snapped.

Enlisting the managerial services of fellow WWE Hall of Famer Jimmy Hart, The Honky Tonk Man unleashed his evil side, setting out to make his opponents twist and shout in agony. And if the damage he inflicted on his opponents wasn’t enough, he subjected the WWE Universe to his unique talents as a singer, facetiously thanking fans and telling them they were “a wonderful audience” as he belted out his own entrance music.

The new attitude was apparently just what the crooner needed, as he racked up victory after victory on his way to becoming Intercontinental Champion in June 1987 with a shocking victory over Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat. Following his big win, The Honky Tonk Man went on to claim that he was the greatest Intercontinental Champion of all time. At first, that boast may have rang a little hollow, but his claims began to hold a little more water as his reign continued.

By hook or by crook, The Honky Tonk Man held onto the Intercontinental Championship for nearly 13 months before his reign ended in lightning-quick fashion at the hands of Ultimate Warrior at SummerSlam 1988. His record-breaking 454 days as Intercontinental Champion is a feat that has stood the test of time, as no Superstar has come close to eclipsing his unprecedented championship reign.

The Honky Tonk Man was, surprisingly, also willing to share the spotlight later in his WWE career, whether it was as one half of the tag team/band Rhythm & Blues with Greg “The Hammer” Valentine, or as the manager of Rockabilly (fellow 2019 inductee Billy Gunn of D-Generation X).

But once again, the spotlight will be on The Honky Tonk Man as he takes his place in sports-entertainment history. Don’t miss The Honky Tonk Man’s enshrinement during the 2019 WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony on Saturday, April 6, at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., during WrestleMania 35 Week. Tickets for this historic evening are available now!

About time. He should have been in a good decade ago and inducted by Jerry Lawler.

I hope the rumour with Taz is true. He's always bantered on his podcast that he will never get in because of what he says about the company negatively and that his wife doesn't have to spray paint her wedding dress orange to see him inducted as it won't happen.

But just last week when asked about the HOF he was like maybe, maybe not, never say never. Sounds promising that he will be the first guy going in who's legit known the most for his ECW work.

So far I really don't give a crap. It STILL grates on my every last nerve when people call Honky the greatest Intercontinental Champion of all time. Savage, Perfect, Hitman, Razor, HBK, Owen, Angle, Benoit, Jericho, Cody, The Miz, Ziggler are all easily better champions.
