The WWE Hall Of Fame has been in discussions at WWE headquarters in Stanford, CT for some time now and now WWE has begun making plans.
The first WWE Superstar inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame was Andre The Giant who was inducted on the March 22nd, 1993 episode of Monday Night Raw where André the Giant, who had died nearly two months prior, was announced as the sole inductee posthumously with no formal ceremony. A video package was shown on an episode of WWF Superstars in 1993 that announced his induction.
Since then many WWE Superstars have been inducted and the WWE Hall Of Fame ceremony has become a staple part of WrestleMania weekend.
Now WWE looks to permanently enshrine these legends with a physical WWE Hall Of Fame located in Florida. WWE is early in the development stages and the WWE Hall Of Fame would require tickets to enter and will feature WWE memorabilia and relics from WWE’s historic wrestling legacy.
The new A&E show “WWE’s most wanted treasures” is also connected to this physical WWE Hall Of Fame as WWE is currently searching for more memorabilia and collectors items that will be displayed in the physical WWE Hall Of Fame.
This is why that show was created, as preparation for the physical WWE Hall Of Fame. Every year at WrestleMania Axxess there is hundreds of relics and items on display for fans to take photos and get up close. This will be similar to the layout and displays in the physical WWE Hall Of Fame.
Another interesting aspect to the building and production of the physical WWE Hall Of Fame is that the stage and set-up of WrestleMania 33 that took place in Orlando, FL in 2017 will be used as the entrance for the physical WWE Hall Of Fame.
The stage and set-up of the WrestleMania 33 costs Vince McMahon a whopping $5 Million Dollars. More than any other WrestleMania stage set-up. Sources tell SW that Vince McMahon spent that amount of money because he always had intended to use it as the Hall Of Fame entrance and wanted something grand for the fans.
The physical WWE Hall Of Fame will be a fantastic destination for WWE fans to enjoy the nostalgia and history of WWE’s rich wrestling heritage and as fans we can’t wait to see this. Stay tuned to Slice Wrestling for the latest updates.
