News here! Commentary today on the Hart Foundation as Hall Of Famers, Women Main Event WrestleMania, Kofi vs Bryan and More!
Hart Foundation To The Hall Of Fame
The Hart Foundation had been rumored to be a inducted into the hall of fame class this year for the past few months. Now, WWE has made it official.
On March 1985 in Brantford, Ontario, Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart and I officially became the Hart Foundation. On April 6, 2019, we take our place in the WWE Hall of Fame. I wish Jim was still with us to celebrate this moment, but I know he’ll be on stage with me in spirit. pic.twitter.com/hFasuj385Q

This is well overdue as the Hart Foundation were one of the top five tag teams in WWE history. The only disappointment is the induction comes after the passing of Jim The Anvil Neidhart.
Women To Main Event WrestleMania
It had been speculated since November, and now it will finally happen. The women will main event WrestleMania for the first time in history. Becky Lynch, Ronda Rousey, and Charlotte Flair will face off in a triple threat match for the RAW women’s championship.

No surprise here, but I am glad the WWE has announced this in advance, rather than handling it like the Hell In A Cell match between Flair and Banks. Depending on who you ask, this match is ever over-hyped, or will be the greatest women’s match in company history. Regardless, the media is all over this announcement, so you can be all eyes will be on this main event. So hopefully fans will be able to last through the 8 hours of WrestleMania prior to this match.
Nikki Bella Announces Her Retirement
On this week’s episode of Total Bellas, Nikki Bella announced her retirement. “I feel like I’m too old for that travel,” Nikki said about the last WWE tour. “I really am ready to hang up the jersey. I can say it fully.”
WWE Spoils WrestleMania World Title Match
We know that Kofi Kingston will most likely take on Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania for the WWE World Championship. Apparently, a reddit user came across a sponsored ad from WWE’s Instagram account today that “spoiled” the match announcement.
No real surprise here, we all knew this match was going to happen. I can’t say that WWE’s Instagram “spoiled” this match announcement.
Becky Lynch Offered Multi-Year Deal
Becky Lynch has been “The Man” when it comes to the women’s division in 2019. With that in mind, Pro Wrestling Sheet has noted that WWE has offered Becky a multi-year deal to stay with WWE and it includes a significant pay raise. She is expected to sign the new deal soon.
Some love Becky, and some love to hate Becky. Regardless, the contract extension is deserved, as she has been part of the shot in the arm the women’s division has needed the last 10 years.
