Kevin Nash has claimed that the WWE Hall of Fame ceremony is longer as special as it once was.
After being relaunched in 2004 the WWE Hall of Fame was a standalone event that took place during WrestleMania weekend. Since 2014 the ceremony has been broadcast on the WWE Network, later Peacock, while in recent years it has taken place directly after SmackDown.
The ceremony now takes place in the ring, while the gathering of assorted WWE legends is seated in the ramp and stage area.
Discussing the ceremony on his Kilq This podcast, Kevin Nash said that the new format has taken the shine off the event. Nash is one of only a few stars to be inducted into the Hall of Fame twice. The former World Champion was inducted on his own in 2015, and then again in 2020 as part of the nWo.
“It just doesn’t feel, one of the things about the hall of fame it usually feels like an award show and this feels like a segment 5 on Raw.”
Kevin Nash Backs Decision By WWE To Have Roman Reigns Defeat Cody Rhodes
One of the biggest talking points to come out of WrestleMania 39 was Roman Reigns’ victory over Cody Rhodes. Heading into the show, many fans believed that Rhodes would emerge with the Undisputed WWE Universal Title. However, Reigns retained the gold to push his title run closer to 1000 days.
Despite the backlash, Kevin Nash agrees with the decision taken by WWE, especially as Reigns is so close to the 1000-day barrier.
