WWE taped the Hall of Fame ceremony with the Class of 2020 from the WWE ThunderDome at Tropicana Field. The ceremony will air on 6th April 2021, on Peacock, the new home of WWE in the United States. They will also induct the Class of 2021 on the same night.

We can confirm that WWE has only taped the Hall of Fame ceremony for the Class of 2020. This makes us believe WWE will induct the Class of 2021 live on the same day.

 

You can see the Class of 2020 posing after their Hall of Fame induction. Three members from the announced Class of 2020 are missing – Batista, Jushin ‘Thunder’ Liger, and William Shatner. We already know Batista requested his induction to be moved to another ceremony.

As far as Liger and Shatner are concerned, both were not present at the Tropicana Field for the tapings. We believe travel restrictions made it difficult for Jushin ‘Thunder’ Liger to come to the United States from Japan. While Shatner’s induction was revealed only a night before the tapings.

WWE Hall of Fame: Class of 2020 pose for a picture

The entire Class of 2020 posed for a photo with WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon, and WWE Hall of Famer Triple H. You can see the nWo (Hulk Hogan, Scott Hall, Kevin Nash, and Sean Waltman), The Bella Twins, John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield, and The British Bulldog’s family.

It was great to see The Bulldog’s son, Davey Boy Smith. Jr, ex-wife, Diana Hart, and daughter Georgia Hart posing with the iconic British Bulldog alongside the Class of 2020. Another interesting man stood amongst the inductees, and that was Titus O’Neil. Titus is rumored to be the recipient of the Warrior Award.
