WWE’s Hall Of Fame ceremony for 2020 was postponed due to the Coronavirus pandemic. It is unknown when the company plans to hold it, but there’s a possibility that they hold it during SummerSlam weekend, considering that it’s the 3rd big pay-per-view of the year after Royal Rumble and WrestleMania.
WrestlingNewsco reported that it’s possible WWE goes with this plan.
“As I previously noted, WWE still hopes to do SummerSlam with fans in Boston, MA. Georgia Hart, daughter of the legendary Davey Boy Smith, noted on Twitter in March that WWE was hoping to do the event in August during SummerSlam weekend.
I asked around about the Hall Of Fame and was told that the date is still to be determined but it is still ‘very possible’ that the Hall Of Fame ceremony will take place during SummerSlam weekend.”
Below are the inductees for the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2020:
