WWE had an entire WWE Hall Of Fame Class of 2020 ready to go, but COVID-19 caused the ceremony to be cancelled. Now WWE is trying to figure out new plans.
It was previously reported that WWE is now considering WrestleMania 37 for this year’s inductees. That will reportedly see the class of 2020 become the class of 2021.
Bodyslam.net reports that WWE had plans to “piecemeal” the 2020 Hall Of Fame class together. They were going to introduce them during Raw, SmackDown, and other pay-per-views until the inductees were all taken care of.
“They were actually going to piecemeal the HOF class of 2020 – inducting them at various SmackDowns and such. Plans were in place to induct some members just this past month, during a SmackDown that didn’t correspond with a PPV, but various people had… well… extenuating circumstances.”
The circumstances were out of their control as Bodyslam was additionally told: “COVID and other factors made last month’s induction impossible.”
WWE still has a Class of 2020 that needs to be inducted into their Hall Of Fame. The status of the Bella Twins could have also changed due to recently giving birth. It does seem like a much safer bet that everyone would be more likely to make the ceremony in 2021.
