With Wrestlemania season in full swing, WWE are continuing to announce members of this year's Hall of Fame class. 

Already announced to be inducted are Goldberg, The Dudley Boyz and Ivory. With those three inductees alone, this year's class was already looking strong. 

And it's just been announced that another performer will be joining them. 

"Double J" Jeff Jarrett, who had two runs in WWF - one between 1992 and 1996, and the other between 1997 and 1999, will take his place alongside the three entrants already announced.

With his inclusion, the 2018 Hall of Fame class is one of the most stacked in recent history.

Double J was a six-time WWF Intercontinental Champion, one-time WWF European Champion, and a one-time WWF Tag Team Champion. 

WWE are also recognising his achievements in WCW, where Jarrett was a four-time WCW World Heavyweight Champion and a three-time WCW United States Heavyweight Champion. 

Alongside his glittering career, he also helped forge the careers of a number of current stars, including the likes of AJ Styles, Bobby Roode and Eric Young.


In a statement made by WWE today, the company credited Jarrett for his worldwide promotion that gave exposure to some of their biggest current names.

"Jarrett continued to compete around the world and also began to promote shows that gave future WWE Superstars like AJ Styles, Bobby Roode and Eric Young their first major exposure," the official WWE website read.   

You'd argue, then, that Double J's inclusion into the Hall of Fame is one that's well deserved. However, not everyone is entirely happy with the decision. 


Some fans took to Twitter to express their disappointment of Jarrett's induction, with a number of people even calling it a joke, citing his past rocky relationship with Vince McMahon. 

Of course, not everyone is against the announcement, with plenty of fans agreeing that he's going to add even more quality to an already insane Hall of Fame class. 

Doube J's inclusion finally answers the question that he used to ask almost every week on WWE TV: "Ain't I great?" 

Apparently so Jarrett, apparently so.
