On WWE Hall of Fame:

‘Surreal, Getting Goosebumps’

Vince McMahon‘s former real-life nemesis, Jeff Jarrett, is going into the WWE Hall of Fame … and no one’s as shocked about the news as Double J himself.

TMZ Sports spoke with Jeff just hours after the WWE made the announcement — and even though he got the call several weeks ago, the pro wrestling legend still can’t believe it’s happening.

“It’s still surreal to me — it really is,” Jarrett said. “I’m getting goosebumps just sitting here talking to you.”

The 11-time world champion was a huge star with WWF and WCW … but had a rocky relationship with Vince — culminating in him being fired ON LIVE TV after McMahon bought out WCW in 2011.

But even though the next decade-and-a-half outside WWE was filled with ups and downs, Jarrett told us — “I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world.”

Jeff adds that he’s got nothing but love for the McMahons now … and he’s incredibly grateful and humbled to join Goldberg and others in this year’s HOF class.

“There’s no denying the fact I have given my professional and, at times, my personal life to this business. So, I wanna thank them and have already thanked them for giving me this opportunity.”

FYI, the induction’s going down at WrestleMania 34 in April … where one of Jarrett’s biggest stars for TNA Wrestling — an org. he created to rival WWE — is set to headline. 

Ronda Rousey is expected to play a part in Mania, too … and Double J is expecting BIG things.
