WWE Hall of Fame 2024 induction ceremony live tonight

Live from the Well Fargo Center in Philadelphia, WWE presents the 2024 Hall of Fame induction ceremony, streaming live on Peacock and WWE Network immediately following the conclusion of Friday Night Smackdown on FOX.

This year’s ceremony will feature six inductees and it’s the first Hall of Fame class picked by Paul “Triple H” Levesque.

Headlining the show will be the incredible Paul Heyman who will be inducted by the current Undisputed WWE Universal champion Roman Reigns. Heyman’s induction in Philadelphia was by no means a coincidence and the beloved former ECW founder will surely wow the crowd in this highly-anticipated speech.

Former WWF Women’s champion Bull Nakano will make her first appearance on WWE television for the first time since 1995. The Japanese star will be inducted by her former arch rival Alundra Blayze.

Barry Windham and Mike Rotunda, collectively known as The U.S. Express, will enter the Hall of Fame after they both were part of the first-ever WrestleMania. The two-time former WWF Tag Team champions endured a rough year with the passing of Windham Rotunda, better known to fans as Bray Wyatt. This will be Barry Windham’s second HOF induction as he’s part of The Four Horsemen as well.

Former NWA wrestler Thunderbolt Patterson is also joining the Hall of Fame. A name maybe not synonymous with WWE, Patterson worked hard to get black wrestlers equal rights during his time in the ring. He was famously blacklisted by the NWA in the 70s for complaining about racism in the business and trying to form a wrestling union. He will be inducted by Scott Spears.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will induct his grandmother, the late Lia Maivia, the former promoter of Polynesian Pro Wrestling in Hawaii. Maivia is one of the few female promoters in the business and was the wife of The High Chief Peter Maivia.

And last and certainly not least, boxing legend Muhammad Ali will also be inducted into the celebrity wing of the WWE Hall of Fame. Ali, one of the most recognizable athletes in the world, was the outside referee for WrestleMania I and previously competed against Antonio Inoki in The War of the Worlds. The boxing champion and Olympic gold medalist will be inducted by his widow Lonnie Ali.
