Batista and nWo to be inducted in Hall Of Fame class of 2020

Batista nWo hall of fame

WWE has announced that both Batista and nWo members “Hollywood” Hulk Hogan, Scott Hall, Kevin Nash and Sean Waltman will be inducted into Hall Of Fame next year.

The news of Batista’s induction was broken by and nWo’s induction was confirmed by ESPN. The company later made both these announcements official on their website.

Talking about his upcoming Achievement, the Animal revealed that Vince McMahon personally called him to offer the honor and he said that he doesn’t think it has sunk in yet:

“I don’t think it’s sunk in, and I was thinking about it because I mean, it seems like a long journey, but it also feels like yesterday when I started my career. And it also feels … because I’m still working so much, it doesn’t feel like an end of a journey.”

On the other hand, Hulk Hogan recalled how they were the guys who were trying to take Vince McMahon’s spot years ago and now they are being inducted into the Hall Of Fame:

“You’ve got four guys that were basically going at Vince as a shoot, pushing hard to actually try to take over,” Hogan told ESPN. “Not put him out of business but basically take his spot and be the No. 1 company. All of a sudden, you’re inducting four guys in the Hall of Fame that 20 years ago were trying to stab you in the back. It’s like Vince says: In the WWE, never say never.”

The 2020 WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will take place on Thursday, April 2 at Amalie Arena in Tampa Bay, Florida as part of WrestleMania 36 Week.

    I dont see why Waltman should be included. Should just he the trio IMO.

  • Sparti Love

    Exactly. He was already inducted as XPac with DX last year, now again as Syxx with nWo. Does this mean he won’t get inducted as the 123 Kid? It’d be dumb to give him 3 rings

  • wildeye

    Should be just the original 3 not Waltman. Then what about Big Show or even Eric Bishof if they put in Waltman? Why is he even getting 2 rings when people like the Bulldogs or Demolition deserve to be in there.

  • Michael Justin Arnold

    Well I remeber him being there more so than Syxx lol. Why aren’t members #4 & 5 be inducted too hahah

  • Sparti Love

    Sean Waltman is now the first ever and likely only back-to-back WWE HOFer

    Like this is going to stop Virgil from saying he’s a WWE Hall of Famer.
