Fabulous Freebirds to be inducted into WWE Hall of Fame

The Fabulous Freebirds are to be into the WWE Hall of Fame.

The iconic wrestling trio - comprised of Michael 'P.S.' Hayes, Terry 'Bam' Gordy and Buddy 'Jack' Roberts - are to be recognised for their incredible achievements in the ring on Saturday, April 2.

Hayes, the only surviving member of the group, told Rolling Stone magazine that he is looking forward to telling stories about his friends at the ceremony in Texas.

He explained: "I've never been a person who is at a loss for words, so I'm pretty sure I'll have some things to say. They may not let me curse, but I want to pay homage to Terry and Buddy and the group, so I'm going to tell as many stories as they'll let me get away with. Believe me, I've got plenty of them."

Triple H - part-time Superstar and WWE Executive Vice President - tweeted: "You can't have a party in Dallas without the #FabulousFreebirds. A long-deserved place in the #WWEHOF. #BadstreetUSA (sic)."

The announcement of the Fabulous Freebirds' induction into the WWE Hall of Fame comes soon after Triple H announced Sting as the first honouree of 2016.

Sting and the Fabulous Freebirds will take their place amongst wrestling's elite competitors at the WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony the night before 'WrestleMania 32' takes place at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas on April 3.
