Report: WWE Planning To Pre-Tape 2021 Hall Of Fame
The event will be broadcast on Tuesday 6 April
WWE is reportedly planning on not holding the 2021 Hall Of Fame ceremony live and will instead conduct some form of pre-taping prior to the broadcast on Tuesday 6 April.
WWE confirmed last week that the 2021 Hall Of Fame would see the 2020 class finally inducted, after last year's event was cancelled, while also introducing a 2021 class too.
Molly Holly became the first confirmed name for the Hall Of Fame 2021 Class last week and Fightful Select is reporting that, as of that announcement, the plan is to pre-tape the show in some capacity.
While WWE officials feel pre-taping the Hall Of Fame event is far from ideal they recognise that it is probably the best course of action for the time being.
The report goes on to suggest that, prior to last year's Hall Of Fame being cancelled, attendance at the event had become mandatory for talent after Vince McMahon personally became upset that some of his roster would leave the show early in recent years. However, many of those talent noted were required for early morning media obligations the following day.
The 2021 Hall Of Fame is scheduled to be shown on Peacock and the WWE Network on Tuesday 6 April in a hectic week of programming for WWE. The promotion will be airing a show every night for at least eight straight days.
