“Double J” Jeff Jarrett is line dancing his way into WWE’s Hall of Fame, the company announced on Monday — remember that time he broke an acoustic guitar over actor Gary Coleman’s (“Diff’rent Strokes”) head?
Barstool Sports’ Robbie Fox does, and now we all can too.
Watch the moment below:

Jarrett was fired from WWE competitor Impact Wrestling in October. The 50-year-old industry lifer co-founded that company back in 2002.
Though his Fall 2017 ouster from the other (with a tip of the cowboy hat to Ring of Honor) U.S.-based pro-wrestling promotion turning into a Vince McMahon-blessed Hall-of-Fame induction could be eyebrow-raising, Jarrett did have a big impact (pun semi-intended) on WWE back in the 1990s.
“Double J” was a six-time Intercontinental Champion back in the WWF days. He was one of four wrestlers to hold both the Intercontinental and European titles simultaneously.

From Buddy Rogers to Brock Lesnar, here are all the guys from the old WWWF and WWF days — and beyond
Pro-wrestling championship belts change hands (or waists) like grapplers change trunks these days, though it wasn't always that way. Hell, sometimes it only takes five seconds to crown a new champion, which was the case on Fox's "Friday Night SmackDown" premiere when Brock Lesnar squashed Kofi Kingston.
Scroll through our gallery to see every WWE Champion ever, ranked by their numbers of title reigns. Remember: this is a list of those who won the WWWF Championship, the WWF Championship or the WWE Championship. So don't come after us, Universal Champions, et al.
