WrestleVotes, who has broken several news stories in the past, is reporting that Hillbilly Jim is a new name that is being rumored for the 2018 WWE Hall of Fame class.
Texting w/ a source regarding the 2018 Hall of Fame. The rumored names of Bam Bam Bigelow & Kid Rock seem to be correct… but a non rumored name is also set for induction this year: Hillbilly Jim.

It was first reported by Brad Shepard of Bodyslam.net that the class would consist of Goldberg, Bam Bam Bigelow, Ivory, Dudley Boyz and Kid Rock. WWE later decided to announce Jeff Jarrett’s inclusion into this year’s class.
It’s very possible that WWE has made a few slight changes and Hillbilly Jim could be a last minute decision to be included in the class as he wasn’t one of the original names rumored a few months back.
