• Why WWE Hasn’t Announced More Inductees For Hall Of Fame Class Of 2020

The only inductees announced for WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2020 so far are Batista and the nWo (Hulk Hogan, Kevin Nash, Scott Hall and Sean Waltman).

Brad Shepard gave the following reason behind WWE not announcing more Hall of Fame inductees for the class of 2020:

“According to a source in WWE, the company’s making a concerted effort to keep the names of HOF inductees quiet more so than usual this year.

The idea is they want to surprise the remaining inductees – they saw what the NFL did this year (eg: Jimmy Johnson) and they liked it.”
