WWE have announced the first Hall Of Fame 2021 inductee and confirmed the date of this year’s official ceremony.
During WWE’s The Bump, it was announced that this year’s WWE Hall of Fame ceremony will take place on April 6. Fans will be able to stream the show on Peacock.
Last year’s Hall of Fame ceremony was unfortunately cancelled in the midst of the pandemic. It is currently the plan to officially induct the 2020 Hall of Fame class members as well as a new class for 2021.
The class of 2020 included the likes of Batista, The Bella Twins and Jushin “Thunder” Liger.
Molly Holly was announced on The Bump to be the first inductee of the class of 2021. First debuting for WWE in 2000, Molly Holly is a former two-time Women’s Champion and one-time Hardcore Champion.
April 6 is the Tuesday before WrestleMania 37, taking place on April 10 and 11. This further supports rumours the report that there will be an NXT TakeOver show announced for April 8, the only date during WrestleMania week which is currently unoccupied with live WWE programming.
With NXT reportedly moving to Tuesday nights from April 13, Hall of Fame 2021 occupies the last Tuesday before NXT’s reported change of days.
Here is the tweet announcing Molly Holly as the first inductee of the 2021 Hall of Fame:
