After the numerous and truly important problems caused to the WWE by the pandemic that is still raging throughout the United States and beyond, the McMahon-owned company seems to have found a solution to the WWE Hall of Fame problem, the famous introduction ceremony in the 'Ark of Glory of WWE, with which the McMahon Federation has been rewarding its most famous and deserving athletes for years.
After the cancellation in April due to the initial pandemic problems, with the federation also having to cancel the Wrestlemania Axxess and the NXT TakeOver, it seems that the McMahon family management has now found a solution for the Hall of Fame ceremony, such as already speculated only a few months ago.
News on the WWE Hall of Fame 2020 ceremony
Paul Davis of WrestlingNews.co reports that WWE still hopes of having the HOF ceremony of 2020 during SummerSlam weekend. Davis asked around backstage and was told that while a date has not been decided, the ceremony may take place on the weekend of SummerSlam.
It was added that the show depends on the many factors. It includes the travel restrictions and the COVID-19 rules & regulations imposed by the government. As of this writing, the WWE Hall of Fame ceremony has not been cancelled for good, and there are people in the company who feel it won't need to happen inside the Performance Center.
Wrestling News reports that when asked about rescheduling the WWE Hall Of Fame to SummerSlam, the answer they received was it’s “very possible”. I asked around about the Hall Of Fame and was told that the date is still to be determined but it is still “very possible” that the Hall of Fame ceremony will take place during SummerSlam weekend.
The Bella Twins might not be able to make the ceremony around SummerSlam time. They are currently pregnant and staying healthy in the middle of a pandemic is likely a priority. Again, everything will depend on how things play out with travel restrictions and rules put in place by the governor but, as of now, SummerSlam is not canceled and people in the company are hopeful that they won’t have to move the show to the Performance Center.
The inductees for the 2020 WWE Hall Of Fame are Dave Bautista, John Bradshaw Layfield, “The British Bulldog” Davey Boy Smith, Jushin “Thunder” Liger, The NWO (Hulk Hogan, Scott Hall, Kevin Nash and Sean Waltman), and The Bella Twins (Nikki and Brie Bella).
