As soon as it was announced that WrestleMania 36 was being moved to the Performance Center due to the coronavirus pandemic, people began asking what the plan was for the WWE Hall of Fame ceremony. It was scheduled to take place on April 2, 2020, from the Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida, but obviously wouldn’t be happening.
While WWE has not made an official statement as of writing, the daughter of The British Bulldog, Georgia Smith, would update fans on Twitter, with the below tweet.
Just a heads up! I have spoken with @WWE and they are postponing the Hall of Fame for a later date, and are hoping to do it for Summerslam (which would be appropriate for my dad) thanks again for all your support! Let’s all stay safe out there🇬🇧 pic.twitter.com/iuXwRWJ4iL

So while SummerSlam is not confirmed, it would seem the most appropriate and timely event for the ceremony. It would be the first time the event was not associated with WrestleMania since 1996 when it was held in conjunction with the Survivor Series. Currently, the 2020 inductees announce3d are the nWo I(Hogan, Nash, Hall, and Waltman), Batista, The British Bulldog, JBL, The Bella Twins, and Jushin “Thunder” Liger.”
