You can never say never in the world of professional wrestling, as there are many people out there who thought they would never see Jeff Jarrett on WWE programming again, but today WWE confirmed that he will be inducted into the Hall of Fame this year.

This year’s class is stacked with big names such as Goldberg, The Dudley Boyz and Ivory, and Jarrett will make a nice addition to the class. But fans aren’t the only ones who thought a Hall of Fame induction for Jarrett was far fetched, as Double J himself has said that he didn’t think it would happen.

“I would have never dreamed that in 2018 I’d be going into the Hall of Fame,” Jarrett said to NBC Sports, “but as I’ve sat back and looked I said, ‘Welp, I guess there are some things that are just meant to be.’”

Jeff Jarrett’s family has been in the wrestling business for a long time, and he also noted that this induction isn’t just about him.

“It’s a humbling honor and I will be accepting it on behalf of just not myself, but my wife Karen, who has had to go through ups and downs. My dad, my stepmom, my uncle, who just passed away. My grandfather, my grandmother on the other side of my family,” Jarrett said. “It’s a three generation business, so I’m accepting it for everyone in my family because it is a family business. That is something that is so humbling to me. I’m the one who got picked, but it’s really an award for the entire Jarrett family.”
