Hillbilly Jim to join WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2018


Bleacher Report is saying the the good ol’ country boy, Hillbilly Jim is going to be joining the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2018.

A name which is never listed on WWE’s greatest, Hillbilly Jim was a popular lower midcard act from the mid-late 1980s. (See KoKo B Ware) His accomplishments were technically few, but WWE loves to induct its “characters”

This one proves to be a hard one for me personally as I like Hillbilly Jim, I remember him as a kid (I am a child of the Rockin Wrestling Era), where he appeared on  Hulk Hogan’s Rockin Wrestling, had a fun song on the 1980s WWF album and played second fiddle to Hulk Hogan in his feuds with the Heenan Family.

Hillbilly Jim is what I would call an extraneous inductee. He was well loved certainly because of the above , but did near next to nothing notable.  Is that Hall of fame worthy?  I will do a full breakdown on Hillbilly Jim shortly. in the meantime, what do you think?
