Report: Update On 2023 WWE Hall Of Fame Plans
Latest on WWE's Hall of Fame plans
Inductees into the WWE Hall of Fame are set to be revealed very soon.
According to WrestleVotes, the plan earlier this week was to start revealing the 2023 class of the WWE Hall of Fame from Friday, March 10.
"The plan as of Monday was to begin announcing this year's Hall of Fame induction class today. The annual HOF ceremony is 3 weeks from tonight in Los Angeles following SmackDown," WrestleVotes tweeted.
Batista is expected to headline the 2023 class. The WWE Hall of Fame ceremony is set to take place on Friday, March 31 following that night's go-home episode of SmackDown before WrestleMania 39.
Mick Foley recently revealed that somebody reached out to him about inducting them into the Hall of Fame at this year's ceremony.
Speaking on the latest episode of Foley is Pod, the Hardcore Legend did not reveal who made the request and noted that, while he accepted it, nothing is official, saying:
"I received a text message from someone I'd had no contact with in a while, years and years, asking if I would induct them into the WWE Hall of Fame. As this plays out, we will see. There's always a chance that request will be denied, but I know this person responded back to WWE that I was in. As of this moment, I'm counting on being there at the Hall of Fame to induct this person. I'm not going to tell you who it is, but we will all find out together or if it's ixnayed. I'll let you know at that juncture in time. I'll let you know after the Hall of Fame who it was that asked me, but it was a daymaker for sure. Someone who had many different options and asked me, so I was really flattered, readily accepted, and we will see how that comes to pass, if it comes to pass".
Foley has lobbied for several people to be inducted into the Hall of Fame over the years, including Vader (who was inducted last year), Chyna and Lex Luger. He has also expressed his desire for Donald Trump to be removed from the Hall's Celebrity Wing. Foley himself was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2013 by Terry Funk.
