WWE didn’t get to hold a Hall of Fame ceremony last year, but they have learned a thing or two about producing an event during the pandemic.
Metro.UK recently spoke to Davey Boy Smith, Jr about his father’s WWE Hall of Fame induction. His induction was postponed last year, but they plan on having a do-over in 2021.
Due to the current pandemic restrictions, WWE will not have a live crowd like they have in past years. Smith Jr stated that it will have a ThunderDome feel to the event, but it is apparently still happening. He also has some ideas for his speech to induct his father, but it will likely only be him doing the speech now.
“I’ve been starting to pinpoint things. I’m gonna have to base that on how much time they’re going to allow me. My sister and my mother will be with me on the podium, and how much we’re gonna have to divide that between the three of us – and who’s going to do the induction for him.”
“I’m not sure what or who that might be at this point because of the COVID restrictions. I think it will just be me inducting Davey, as far as I know. I don’t think that they’re doing an audience, just with the fans from the Network on the screens.”
The 2020 WWE Hall of Fame class was never officially inducted. That class included “The British Bulldog” Davey Boy Smith, The Bella Twins, JBL, Batista, Jushin “Thunder” Liger, and the nWo consisting of Hulk Hogan, Scott Hall, Kevin Nash, and Sean Waltman. That class could very well reman unchanged as they are actually inducted in 2021.
The company has made no official announcement about a 2021 WWE Hall of Fame ceremony, or inducting class. We will continue monitoring this on-going story here at Ringside News.
