The longest-reigning Intercontinental Champion of all time is going into the Hall of Fame!
As reported by CBS News, the 66-year-old wrestling legend will be an inductee in the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2019.
The Honky Tonk Man — whose real name is Wayne Farris — held the WWE Intercontinental Championship for 454 days between 1987 – 1988, which makes him the longest-reigning Intercontinental Champion of all time.
“I never dreamed it was going to happen and would tell people that it’s something I don’t think about every day of my life,” Farris told CBS. “But to be able to be part of this, it’s hard to explain.”
