A new report has suggested that some members of the class of 2022 WWE Hall Of Fame may not be inducted during the live ceremony.
The Undertaker was announced as the first inductee into the 2022 class of the WWE Hall Of Fame after the Deadman hung up his boots after a phenomenal WWE career that ended in the main event of WrestleMania 36 when he defeated AJ Styles in a Boneyard Match.
WWE confirmed that former three-time WCW World Champion Vader is the second inductee, with The Mastodon being inducted post-humously following his tragic death in 2018.
Now Dave Meltzer speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio says that WWE is considering some members of the WWE Hall Of Fame class of 2022 not getting to be inducted as part of the ceremony:
“One thing I’ve heard also [is] because The Undertaker’s Hall Of Fame thing is gonna be so big – they’re only doing the 90-minute window because they’re doing the show from 10.30 to midnight Eastern, 9.30 til 11 local time because of the lateness and everything like that.”
“I’ve heard they may announce this class but some of the people it’ll happen but it will be like digital inductions in some of the cases opposed to the usual number of 8 I think it is.”
“The Undertaker is gonna get the big, grand treatment. I would presume Vader would, he was a really big star but a lot of the other guys, there’s been talk of – again with 90 minutes, not doing them as part of that ceremony but just doing it digitally.”
The WWE Hall Of Fame ceremony will take place following the SmackDown show on Friday, 1st of April ahead of the two-night WrestleMania 38.
