Raj Giri of Wrestling Inc first reported the news.
JBL is a former WWE Champion, Intercontinental Champion, United States Champion, and three-time Tag Team Champion alongside Faarooq (Ron Simmons). Simmons was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2012.

As of now, the only confirmed inductees into the 2020 WWE Hall of Fame class are the New World Order (Kevin Nash, Scott Hall, Hulk Hogan, & Sean Waltman) and Batista. Other names reportedly set to be inducted include The Bella Twins (Nikki & Brie Bella), Jushin "Thunder" Liger, and "The British Bulldog" Davey Boy Smith.
