WWE reveals the first inductee in the Hall of Fame Class of 2021

In recent days, WWE has confirmed that its Wrestlemania Week, this year will air almost as always, that is with the edition of Wrestlemania 37 which will be broadcast divided over two evenings, with several attendees present at the Tampa stadium.

Bay, where the most important Big Four of all will be staged and with all the related events that WWE Universe fans could not attend last year. Because of the global pandemic, in fact, which broke out just behind the Showcase of the Immortals last year, WWE had had to cancel all the shows related to the week of Wrestlemania, including the NXT TakeOver, the Axxess and the Hall of Fame ceremony, which already had its names ready to be included in the 2020 Ark of Glory class of the federation.

The WWE Hall of Fame ceremony is set to take on April 6

After announcing that the introduction ceremony of its historic athletes of the company's Hall of Fame will take place on April 6, live on the Peacock TV screens and then on Tuesday evening, an unusual choice for the WWE which usually held the ceremony towards the end of the week, the McMahon company also confirmed that both the 2020 and 2021 class will be placed together in a single ceremony this year, avoiding further wasted time for the skipped class last year.

The first name to have been made for the 2021 Ark of Glory class by WWE, was that of Molly Holly, historic fighter of the company's past, also seen several times in the federation rings in recent years, engaged in the Royal Rumble female, in which she still showed off a technique and agility that are not indifferent to an athlete no longer in her prime and above all in optimal physical condition, like that of her colleagues who train daily to get into the ring.

With the following announcement, WWE, therefore, wanted to confirm that Molly is the first name of the Hall of Fame 2021, which will thus be added to those of last year, which will enter the Hall of Fame only a year later, which are: the NWO (X-Pac, Kevin Nash, Hulk Hogan and Scott Hall), The Bella Twins, Batista, Davey Boy Smith, JBL and Jushin Thunder Liger.

Earlier on the same episode of The Bump, Kayla Braxton stated that the Hall of Fame ceremony will be held on April 6, 2021, and it will be available for streaming on Peacock. This year's Hall of Fame ceremony will honor both the Class of 2020 and the Class of 2021.

Last year, the COVID-19 pandemic forced WWE to postpone the Hall of Fame ceremony indefinitely. The WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2020 features Batista, Jushin "Thunder" Liger, John Bradshaw Layfield, The British Bulldog, the New World Order and the Bella Twins. WWE will probably announce more members of this year's class in the coming weeks.
