Bret Hart may already be a WWE Hall of Fame inductee, but now The Hitman is lobbying for his old tag team The Hart Foundation to be inducted too.
To be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame is the highest honor a WWE Superstar can achieve, for most pro wrestlers anyway. From Stone Cold Steve Austin to the Ultimate Warrior to Trish Stratus, if you have made a big impact on the business, then sooner or later you will likely make it into pro wrestling's elite.
Two days before WrestleMania, the Hall of Fame induction ceremony takes place every year and the class of 2018 has already started to come together. This past Monday, WWE announced that Goldberg will be the headliner for this year's class, a deserved inductee based on his work with WCW alone. WWE often select a tag team to go in each year as well, and Bret Hart is lobbying for one in particular.
Bret Hart is already in the WWE Hall of Fame. He was inducted back in 2006. However, according to The Wrestling Observer, he wants to be inducted again, but it's not how it sounds. The Hitman would like The Hart Foundation to be inducted, the tag team he made up one half of alongside Jim 'The Anvil' Neidhart. Apparently, Neidhart is battling some health issues and Hart wants his brother-in-law to be inducted while he can still appreciate and enjoy it.
Wrestlers being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame twice is not unheard of. There is currently one other man who has been bestowed with that honor, and that's Ric Flair. The Nature Boy is a Hall of Famer in his own right and also as a part of The Four Horsemen. Clearly, WWE wants to reserve being a two time Hall of Famer for the absolute best wrestlers ever, surely The Hitman falls into that category.
There are a lot of names who have inexplicably not yet been inducted into the Hall of Fame and when it comes to tag teams The Hart Foundation is definitely one of them. It feels like it's only a matter of time until Hart and Neidhart are inducted as a tandem, let's hope WWE heed The Hitman's word and get it done sooner rather than later.
