The next inductee into the WWE Hall of Fame has been revealed.

Now 72, Osbourne was present at WrestleMania II, where he and Captain Lou Albano managed The British Bulldogs to a WWF Tag Team Championship victory over The Dream Team of Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake and Greg "The Hammer" Valentine. Ozzy's other appearances with the company came much later. He performed his song 'I Don't Wanna Stop' live on the May 18, 2007, edition of SmackDown, and then two years later served as the guest host of Raw on November 2, 2009.

Joining him as part of the 2020 and 2021 classes are The British Bulldog, John "Bradshaw" Layfield, Jushin "Thunder" Liger, nWo, Nikki and Brie Bella, William Shatner, Molly Holly, Eric Bischoff, The Great Khali, and Rob Van Dam. Titus O'Neil will be presented with the Warrior Award.

Recently, fellow inductee Sean Waltman (as part of nWo) revealed that there were no inductors at this year's ceremony. Nikki and Brie Bella also shared that they were only given between three and five minutes to deliver their speech.

The 2020 induction ceremony was pushed back a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Unlike past years, the Hall of Fame was taped a week ahead of time and was not be held in front of a live audience.

The WWE Hall of Fame ceremony will air on Tuesday, April 6 on NBC's streaming service, Peacock.
