Every year, wrestling fans get together to watch the all-time greats make their way into the WWE Hall of Fame.

Last year, we revisited our childhoods as legends such as Goldberg, The Dudley Boyz, and Mark Henry finally got inducted. The speeches provided by each Hall of Fame inductee evoked warm memories of some of the most iconic moments in all of professional wrestling. And it’s always amazing to see how each Superstar responds to their peers and the fans that supported them. For 2019, another batch of wrestling’s best and most memorable personalities will be greeted with a fresh WWE Hall of Fame ring.

Now without further ado, here’s a complete listing of every 2019 WWE Hall of Fame inductee.


D-Generation X (Shawn Michaels, Triple H, Chyna, Road Dogg, Billy Gunn, and X-Pac)

One of the rowdiest wrestling stables of all time (and the group that caused school children to direct their crotch chops at teachers) is coming together for the WWE Hall of Fame. What’s so cool about the way that D-Generation X is getting inducted is the fact that both iterations of the group are being considered. The original trio (sans Rick Rude) of Shawn Michaels, Triple H, and Chyna will be joined by the rest of the brazen gang.

The New Age Outlaws duo of Road Dogg and Billy Gunn, plus the supremely underrated X-Pac are a part of that gang. But most importantly, Chyna is finally receiving the Hall of Fame honors she’s always deserved. Never mind her seedy past as a part of the adult film industry – Chyna’s impact on women’s wrestling should be honored in some form or fashion. Posthumously inducting her alongside the living members of WWE’s wildest stable is an amazing honor. And if you’re not down with that…well, you know what to do.


Honky Tonk Man

When the WWE Intercontinental Championship comes up in a conversation, one name immediately comes to mind – the Honky Tonk Man. At 454 days, he enjoyed the longest uninterrupted reign from 1987 to 1988. And during the entirety of that reign, the Honky Tonk Man got the crowd to despise all of his scathing promos and dirty in-ring antics. And as any wrestling fan knows, that’s a job well done.

Besides his iconic IC championship reign, major loss to the Ultimate Warrior at SummerSlam 1988, and Rhythm & Blues tag team run alongside Greg “The Hammer” Valentine, the Honky Tonk Man also enjoyed mild success in WCW. His most successful endeavors since leaving the squared circle have involved him being a part of wrestling shoot interviews. If there’s one thing wrestling fan know, it’s that the Honky Tonk Man is unfiltered when it comes to giving his thoughts on any topic presented to him. I’m sure we’re going to get an edited version of the Honky Tonk Man when he hits the Hall of Fame stage, though…


Torrie Wilson

So this announcement is quite…puzzling. It’s not shocking by any means. The WWE Hall of Fame features a slew of inductees who really didn’t do much of anything in wrestling. Some of WWE’s Hall of Famers didn’t even compete in the company that’s inducting them! While I have no ill will towards Torrie Wilson, she hasn’t truly accomplished anything worthwhile in professional wrestling.

She never really improved as an in-ring wrestler, plus she participated in some pretty tasteless storylines. Anyone remember when her father “died” after getting too frisky with her rival, Dawn Marie? And does anyone recall her time spent as Tajiri’s frightened valet? You probably had to Google those instances cause they weren’t all that memorable to begin with. Even though I’m not the biggest fan of Sable, the fact that Torrie Wilson is getting a Hall of Fame ring before her is mind-boggling. This decision is a definite head scratcher…


Harlem Heat (Booker T and Stevie Ray)

As a native New Yorker, I was thoroughly convinced that Booker T. and Stevie Ray indeed hailed from Harlem. Imagine my surprise when I found out that they’re actually Houston, Texas natives! This reveal didn’t make them any less cool in my eyes, however. Harlem Heat is one of the greatest tag teams in WCW and in all of wrestling period.

Booker’s slick high-flying offense gelled so well with Stevie’s power-based assault. And the loud trash talk on the way to the ring (that they didn’t need microphones for, funny enough) was always a treat. I always got a kick out of seeing them lock it up with the Steiner Brothers, the Nasty Boys, and The Outsiders. I’m sure Harlem Heat will allude to their infamous Hulk Hogan promo during their Hall of Fame speech. And I’m so here for it! Harlem Heat’s WWE Hall of Fame induction is well warranted.

Two top-tier tag teams are getting inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame this year? That’s different and worth the price of admission alone. One’s a classic WCW duo and the other is a legendary two-man power WWE power trip. Bret “The Hitman” Hart and Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart, the “Pink and Black Attack,” are finally making their way into the hallowed halls of the WWE Hall of Fame. During their late-80’s to early 90’s heyday, Bret and Jim competed in some of the best matches within WWE’s strong tag team scene. The inclusion of Jimmy Hart as the team’s manager also gave them that extra pizzaz that endeared them to the crowd.

This induction is going to be a bit sorrowful since Jim won’t be there alongside his partner to receive his Hall of Fame honors. It’s always a downer to hear that someone’s getting inducted a year or so after they passed away. Even though I love the fact that Jim’s getting a posthumous induction, I would have loved to seen him pull off his famous belly laugh live on stage. Bret (and hopefully Jimmy and Jim’s daughter, Natalya) will perfectly detail the greatness of The Hart Foundation.


Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake

And now we’ve arrived at the final entrant into the 2019 Hall of Fame class – wrestling’s favorite barber, Brutus Beefcake. While some of you might scoff at this selection, you’d be wrong for doing so. His mid to late 80s WWE run put him in a prominent position as both a singles and tag team Superstar. While Brutus is commonly referred to as nothing more than “Hulk Hogan’s best friend,” this moniker downplays his successful run as a super over babyface.

What it meant for Hulk Hogan to induct Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake: WWE Exclusive, April 6, 2019Hulk Hogan describes why it was a privilege to get to induct Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake into the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2019.

The man got his biggest victory of all when he ended up becoming the first man to pin Mr. Perfect live on PPV. And this took place at WrestleMania VI! Brutus also got slotted into some big matches alongside Hogan and made the most of his time spent in the spotlight during those bouts. Forget about his WCW stint (the less said about “The Booty Man,” the better) and reflect more on his WWE glory days. This honor makes a ton of sense, if you ask me.
