• Latest Plan For WWE Hall Of Fame Class Of 2020
WWE Hall Of Fame ceremony for 2020 was postponed due to the Coronavirus pandemic. It’s unknown when the company plans to hold it.
The latest plan stated that the ceremony would be held during SummerSlam weekend, but it didn’t happen.
In a new update, WrestleVotes is reporting that WWE now plans to induct the 2020 Hall Of Fame inductees in 2021 during WrestleMania 37 weekend next year.
“WWE’s plan regarding the 2020 Hall of Fame was to do it at a corresponding PPV once fans returned, ideally SummerSlam. That obviously didn’t happen. With no fans until November at the earliest, the plan is now to induct the 2020 class as the class of 2021 during WrestleMania 37.”
