It’s WrestleMania season, which means WWE Hall of Fame announcements will be revealed over the next few weeks, and it was recently confirmed that D-Generation X will be inducted this year.
Now another Hall of Fame induction has been confirmed, as it’s been announced that Honky Tonk Man will be joining the 2019 class.
CBS first broke the news, and Honky Tonk Man, real name Wayne Farris, told the outlet that he never dreamed this would happen.
“WWE is the place to be. For me, it’s the only place I have ever wanted to be,” Farris told CBS Sports’ State of Combat podcast. “It’s the place that if I’m ready to finish up, that’s where I want to be. It’s home for me because I have so many fond memories of everything that has been accomplished by WWE and from what I’ve accomplished myself. It wasn’t me alone, it was a huge team effort.
“That is what’s amazing and what is so great about being part of the WWE. The door is open to you and it’s up to you if you want to walk through it. I look back on everything and for some unknown reason, everything has a meaning. The timing, everything about this year in the 2019 Hall of Fame, everything was lining up perfectly. I never dreamed it was going to happen and would tell people that it’s something I don’t think about every day of my life. But to be able to be part of this, it’s hard to explain.”
The WWE Hall of Fame induction ceremony will air live on the WWE Network on Saturday, April 6.
