With a new regime in the company, WWE legend Jimmy Hart clamouring for a backstage role with the company!
‘The Mouth of the South’ was a prominent figure in the Golden Era, notable for being one of the era’s top managers. Greg Valentine, The Honky Tonk Man, and The Hart Foundation were just some of the names under Hart’s guidance but now, the WWE Hall of Famer is eyeing up a new role.
Speaking with Wrestling Inc., Jimmy Hart hinted at starting a new role with WWE in lieu of Stephanie McMahon, Nick Khan, and Paul ‘Triple H’ Levesque taking over leadership of the promotion:
“Can you believe it? It’s such an injustice – they should be calling me to do that. So, Stephanie and Triple H, don’t forget Jimmy Hart’s right down here in Tampa, Florida, which is just a short drive to Orlando. I think I can help.”
Although he’s more known as an on-screen manager, Jimmy Hart also served in a variety of backstage roles, as well as being a former wrestler. He’s not wrestled in a decade, though, last working a Battle Royal for Pro Wrestling Superstars.
Hart has been under contract with WWE since 2011. Raw’s 4 January 2021 broadcast of Monday Night Raw saw him make his most recent appearance, starring in a segment with Drew McIntyre, Sheamus, and famed ally Hulk Hogan.
Outside of the ring, Jimmy Hart also has various other interests, having previously been a member of The Gentrys, a rock band famous for Keep On Dancing released in 1965.
