Rumor: Hall of Fame Changes

It looks like some big format changes could be coming to the WWE Hall Of Famer ceremony this year. According to a report from The Floor Seat’s Chris Featherstone, some major traditional components to the festivities will be eliminated this year. One of those eliminations includes each inductee being introduced by specific people.

This was a special tradition during the ceremony, as inductee’s closest friends in the business, or men and women vital to said inductee’s careers, were able to usher them into the Hall Of Fame amongst their fellow professional wrestling greats. Also, the report suggests that induction speeches will now be limited to 15 minutes.

 

One of the biggest criticisms about the ceremony is that some Hall Of Famers deliver speeches that are far too long. With the new 15-minute rule, this will dramatically shorten the length of the ceremony. This year’s Hall Of Fame class includes Harlem Heat (Booker T and Stevie Ray), The Honkey Tonk Man, Torrie Wilson, and D-Generation X (Shawn Michaels, Triple H, Chyna, Billy Gunn, Road Dogg, and X-Pac).

The 15 minute speech limit is a welcome change imo. I really hope they don't get rid of inductors since they're lowkey the best part of a HOF speech for some speeches.

Limiting the speeches is a good idea in my opinion. Some people just ramble on and on.

Hmm, don't really have complaints about this. Limiting the speech time will definitely keep the speeches more focused instead of eventually going off the rails.

Them telling Torrie it's either Victoria, Sable, Dawn OR Nidia she gets to mention, take your pick.

Some of the speeches do run too long but I don’t pay attention to the ones I don’t care about so it never affected me. Them not letting the inductees pick someone to introduce them is messy and ugly though since that has always been a special part of inductions. 

It’s annoying also because it’s not like they’re on borrowed time when they go live since it’s always on the Network. And when they do air it on TV, it’s always a condensed version :skull: 

I really wanted to see Stacy and Maryse inducting Eve in a some years.

When DX go over the 15 minute limit, joke about it, and eat Torrie's time.

this is ugly tbh, i don't pay attention to the men's speeches but you give years to this company and you still can't get more than 15 minutes of fame (literally) :culture:
