WWE has announced that their Hall Of Fame ceremony will be held on Tuesday, April 6th, 2021 and will include the 2020 class of inductees as well as a new 2021 class.
Kayla Braxton on WWE’s The Bump made the announcement that the event will be streaming on Peacock in the United States. The event will be available on the WWE Network throughout the rest of the world.
The week of WrestleMania is set to be a jam-packed affair. Raw will take place on Monday, followed by the Hall Of Fame Special on Tuesday. Reports suggest that NXT TakeOver could be held over two nights, those being Wednesday and Thursday. SmackDown would then take place as normal on Friday night followed by the 2-night WrestleMania over the weekend.
The WWE Hall Of Fame ceremony was cancelled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. WrestleMania 36 was held behind closed doors at the Performance Center in front of no fans.
The inductees for the 2020 class were announced last year. Batista, John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield, British Bulldog, and Jushin ‘Thunder’ Liger are the individual inductees. They will be joined by the Bella Twins. As well as the NWO represented by Hollywood Hogan, Scott Hall, Kevin Nash, and Sean Waltman.
No inductees for the 2021 Hall Of Fame class have yet been announced. There was also no word on whether fans would be able to attend the event. Current plans for WrestleMania will see up to 30,000 fans spread over the Raymond James Stadium. Braxton followed up by saying that more details on the event will be released in the weeks to come.
