WWE will be presenting a double dose of Hall of Fame action tonight as the 2020 and 2021 classes will both be inducted during a special presentation from the WWE ThunderDome on the WWE Network. The ceremonies, taped separately last Tuesday and Thursday, will air together starting at 8PM ET.
This will be a Hall of Fame like no other, with only virtual fans and no inductors reciting old stories and long speeches. Speaking of long speeches, each individual was allocated only a few minutes and with 13 different inductees, you can guess why.
The 2020 class will consist of John “Bradshaw” Layfield, The British Bulldog, Jushin “Thunder” Liger, the New World Order with Hulk Hogan, Kevin Nash, Scott Hall, and Sean Waltman, Nikki Bella and Brie Bella of The Bella Twins, William Shatner who gets the celebrity nod, and Titus O’Neil who was given the Warrior Award.
The 2021 class is the smallest class yet with Molly Holly, Eric Bischoff, Kane, The Great Khali, Rob Van Dam, and Ozzy Osbourne as the celebrity. WWE employee Rich Hiring will be the recipient of the 2021 Warrior Award.
Batista, who was supposed to be part of the 2020 class, requested that he be inducted at a later year since he was not able to appear in person this year due to a scheduling conflict.
