Report: WWE Planned To Induct 2020 Hall Of Fame Members Throughout The Year

The induction ceremony for the 2020 WWE Hall of Fame class had to be postponed, but WWE did have plans to make it happen this year.

According to Cassidy Haynes of, WWE planned to "piecemeal" the inductions by holding them at various times throughout the year. Inductions were planned to take place during SmackDown or Raw and not in conjunction with any pay-per-view. Unfortunately, COVID-19 and "other factors" made inductions impossible.

WrestleVotes noted that the new plan is to induct the class of 2020 during WrestleMania 37 weekend.
