    When the only criteria’s are 1) did you ever work for WWE and 2) are you available on this date to give a speech, I think they’re a long time off being able to not fill a HOF class.

    And even that isn't a requirement.

    There’s the celebrity for the 2020 class. I wonder who it’ll be for this year’s class.

    I do not recall Shatner being on the WWE in any interesting capacity - maybe I’m in the minority. I assume Snooki, Nene Leakes and Jerry Springer are all in the running.

    Why are the Muppets not in the Hall Of Fame yet?

    Who?

    Tbh, Shatner is a pretty weak choice for the celebrity wing. There's actually some huge celebs that still haven't been inducted. Andy Kaufman and Cyndi Lauper being the most obvious omissions. But hey, we got the guy who popped on an episode of Raw in 1995.

    Not really getting the hate for Shatner going in. He's done more noteworthy stuff in WWE than several other 'celebrities' who have been inducted. Jimmy posted some good examples above. He also hosted Raw I believe during the 'Guest Host' Era (not that that was a particularly memorable time).
    He's also done a lot of voiceover work for several WWE programs, promo videos and so on. WWE Breaking Ground is one fairly recent example I can give.

    So all in all, not too bothered by this one at all.

    Shatner deserves to be in just for those entrance themes.

    It isn't, but when you're trying to shoe-horn a new celebrity in every year, you end up with a lot of underwhelming inductions.

    I think it’s more the case that people seem to be like William Shatner has done loads for the business, he definitely deserves to go in, Great Khali is an excellent marketing decision, it makes sense and then Molly is mentioned and because she’s not Trish or Lita, it’s like “what an awful choice”. It’s only people’s opinions but at the same time, I feel there’s a definite imbalance of logic with some of the reactions.

    That's because those people don't like womens wrestling Don't worry so much about them.

    Who here will actually be watching the Hall of Fame shows? Personally they hold no interest for me in recent years.

    Tbh, I can't remember the last time I watched a full Hall of Fame special. Looking at this year, there's already going to be four nights of just WWE action. The Hall of Fame felt far more 'Must see' when it was the only other program besides Wrestlemania that weekend.

    I also think that there’s rarely ever a line-up that makes you want to watch from beginning until end. I’d rather just catch the highlights of the ones I want to see, I agree that it feels a bit drowned in all the Wrestlemania weekend content.

    Re: WWE Hall of Fame 2021 inductees

    Meltzer is reporting that Ozzy Osbourne is gonna be the celebrity inductee for this year.

    Also Wikipedia is saying that the Warrior Award is going to Titus O’Neil. So take that as you will.

    Titus is an excellent pick for that award.
