Exclusive: WWE’s Original Plans For 2020 Hall Of Fame Class During COVID Pandemic

It was previously reported that WWE planned to hold the 2020 Hall of Fame Ceremony at a Pay-Per-View once fans were able to once again attend live events. It was hoped that fans would be able to attend this year’s SummerSlam PPV, but that did not happen.

It has now been said that WWE will not be having fans attend the events live until at least November, which has once again caused the company to change plans for the 2020 WWE Hall of Fame Class. It’s being reported that WWE has now decided to hold off this year’s Class induction altogether, and postpone it until WrestleMania 37.

I reached out to sources inquiring about the recent report, and was told more about WWE’s previous plans for the 2020 Hall of Fame Class induction once WrestleMania 36 was no longer an option. I was told that WWE had plans in place to “piecemeal” this year’s class inductions by inducting members at various WWE events like SmackDown, RAW, and such.

These plans were in place as recently as last month during a SmackDown, which did not correspond with a WWE PPV. However, plans were nixed due to various people having extenuating circumstances.

“They were actually going to piecemeal the HOF class of 2020 – inducting them at various SmackDowns and such. Plans were in place to induct some members just this past month, during a SmackDown that didn’t correspond with a PPV, but various people had… well… extenuating circumstances.”

When I asked for some clarification as to what the circumstances were, I was told:

“COVID and other factors made last month’s induction impossible.”
