Report: 2023 WWE Hall Of Fame Class To Be 'Way Smaller' Than Past Years
WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2023 to be ‘way smaller’ than previous editions
With WrestleMania on the horizon, so to comes the WWE Hall of Fame, with Rey Mysterio so far the only announced name for the prestigious honour.
Rumours have suggested that Japanese pro-wrestling icon and former NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion The Great Muta could be in line for an induction, but a report from Fightful Select suggests that the WWE HOF Class of 2023 could be ‘way smaller’ than in previous years.
Whether this means that the 2023 class will be in line with the 2022 Hall of Fame that only inducted five acts or is set to be even smaller remains to be seen, with the 2022 class itself a stark departure from previous years.
Since being established in 1993, there have been over 230 inductees into the WWE Hall of Fame, with the HOF divided into solo wrestlers, groups/tag teams, celebrities, ‘legacy’ acts, and Warrior Award recipients.
So far, only eight wrestlers have received two inductions into the Hall of Fame, with Bret Hart, Ric Flair, Shawn Michaels, Booker T, Scott Hall, Kevin Nash, and Hulk Hogan receiving inductions as solo acts and as part of a group, whilst Shawn Waltman has received two inductions in group settings for his roles in both the NWO and D-Generation X.
