Arguably one of the greatest tag teams of all time will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame this year. According to a report from PW Insider, the Hart Foundation are set to be honored over WrestleMania weekend.
Bret Hart, Jim Neidhart, and their original manager Jimmy Hart will all receive the honors. Bret Hart was originally inducted into the Hall in 2006 while Jimmy Hart was inducted the year prior in 2005.
Sadly, Neidhart will be a posthumous inductee as we lost him this summer at the age of 63.
Bret and Neidhart both joined WWE after Vince McMahon purchased Stu Hart’s Stampede Wrestling territory in 1984. They began teaming together at Bret’s request in 1985.
The Harts would enlist the help of “Dangerous” Danny Davis, a corrupt referee, to win the titles from the British Bulldogs on an episode of Superstars from January 1987. After a 274 day reign, they would drop the titles to Rick Martel and Tito Santana.
Bret and Neidhart would turn babyface and win the titles for the second time in 1990. They defeated Demolition at SummerSlam that year. The Hart Foundation held the titles for another 209 days before dropping them to the Nasty Boys at WrestleMania VII. Shortly after, Bret began a single’s career and Neidhart would move on to form the New Foundation with Owen Hart.
The Hart Foundation rank 3rd all-time on the list of most combined days spent with the tag titles.
