Sharing my thoughts, opinion, and historical facts on everything WWE both past and present
Back to Blog
Last year due to the ongoing pandemic we were unable to celebrate the past like we do every year as WWE had to cancel the Hall of Fame induction ceremony. Fear not though as the company announced recently that the Class of 2020 will join the Class of 2021 as both will join the Hall of Fame together this year. At this point it seem like they will pre-tape the event which might benefit them in the long run as it is more important for fans to be at Wrestlemania rather then both the Hall of Fame and Wrestlemania.
So far this year we have Molly Holly and Eric Bischoff joining the WWE Hall of Fame. I was surprised by Molly Holly as much like during her career she was an underrated induction. Molly was someone who carried the division and was one of the only serious competitors in a time when the women's division wasn't really taken seriously. Bischoff was more unexpected, because of how often he's appeared for AEW and just the question of how well his relationship was with WWE. There is no doubt that Eric Bischoff belongs in the Hall of Fame and a lot of people were alarmed by him not going in with the New World Order, but now we know why he didn't join them. Bischoff belongs in the Hall of Fame based on his own achievements and not just the achievement of the New World Order.
Speaking on the Hall of Fame Class of 2020 there is one name that sticks out and it's the British Bulldog Davey Boy Smith. Finally Davey will be able to join the hallowed halls of the WWE Hall of Fame as he is one of those names that has deserved an induction for many years, but it just never came. Alongside Davey Boy, the class will include the New World Order, Batista, JBL, Jushin "Thunder" Liger, and The Bella Twins. It will be awesome to give these legends the opportunity to shine in the spotlight one more time again the night before Wrestlemania on April 6 on Peacock.
