WWE Hall Of Fame Delayed Due To Coronavirus
Yet another wrestling event has been postponed.
To the surprise of no one, the WWE Hall of Fame induction ceremony has been pushed back amid health concerns following the outbreak of COVID-19, more commonly known as the coronavirus.
The plan is not to completely cancel the event, but to move it back to later in the year, possibly merging the ceremony with the Summerslam weekend in Boston in August. This news comes from Georgia Smith, the daughter of the “British Bulldog” Davey Boy Smith and host of What's On Georgia's Mind podcast. According to her Twitter, she has been in contact with WWE about the changing of dates for the Hall of Fame.
Just a heads up! I have spoken with @WWE and they are postponing the Hall of Fame for a later date, and are hoping to do it for Summerslam (which would be appropriate for my dad) thanks again for all your support! Let’s all stay safe out there🇬🇧 pic.twitter.com/iuXwRWJ4iL— Georgia Smith (@georgiasmith87) March 17, 2020
Originally the 2020 WWE Hall of Fame ceremony was going to be held on April 2, but with the rising concerns about public health leading to many events across the world being cancelled, the WWE is making a wise decision to move the event to later in the year, unlike the NXT TakeOver: Tampa event which has already been cancelled.
The WWE Hall Of Fame suspension is just the latest hit to wrestling fans, with Wrestlemania 36 being moved to a much smaller venue and being broadcast without a live audience. The only way to see Wrestlemania 36 is on the WWE Network on April 5, 7PM PT.
