According to Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the next WWE Hall of Fame Ceremony will be a virtual induction rather than physical.
Traditionally, the WWE Hall of Fame is held the night prior to or on the weekend of WrestleMania but was forced into cancellation in 2020 thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic. While there were talks of the event being moved to SummerSlam weekend instead, nothing prevailed and now WWE plan to hold the 2020 ceremony prior to WrestleMania 37 on April 10 and April 11.
Though no new names have emerged for a 2021 class, the ceremony which will finally see The British Bulldog, Batista, JBL, The Bella Twins, Jushin Thunder Liger and The NWO take their place in the company’s hallowed halls.
However, according to Dave Meltzer on the latest edition of The Wrestling Observer Radio, the induction ceremony will only be virtual with plans subject to change:
“They’re going to announce more activities [over WrestleMania weekend]. The plan is to do a Hall of Fame. The last I heard, like virtually, without fans but that could change. That might be tough.”
Recently, WWE announced not only that WrestleMania 37 would transpire on April 10 and April 11, instead of March 28, but that WrestleMania 38 would emanate from Texas and WrestleMania 39 would return to Hollywood should all go well.
