The Road to WrestleMania 37 officially began at the Royal Rumble and we are less than two months away from the Show of Shows. Fans have now been trying to guess what WWE has planned for this year’s Hall Of Fame ceremony, which was cancelled last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
While being interviewed by Metro.co.uk, Davey Boy Smith Jr, who is the son of the announced 2020 class of Hall Of Famer British Bulldog, talked about his father being inducted this year.
Smith Jr. noted that the ceremony will be taking place during WrestleMania weekend and there will be no fans in attendance this time. The former WWE Superstar also talked about what kind of speech he will deliver at the ceremony.
He also noted that the Hall Of Fame induction for the British Bulldog was long overdue.
“I’ve been starting to pinpoint things,” Davey Jr. said of his speech. “I’m gonna have to base that on how much time they’re going to allow me. My sister and my mother will be with me on the podium, and how much we’re gonna have to divide that between the three of us – and who’s going to do the induction for him.
I’m trying to think of specific stories that I might want to address or what might be something the WWE Universe hasn’t heard,” he said. “Of course, definitely appreciative to them for all the support they’ve given my father and the wrestling industry – definitely big thanks to them. I’ll have to see how much time I have to really decide.
“Definitely long overdue, but I’m glad that it’s finally happened now. It’s a huge honour and I’m glad that WWE has put faith into me to do the induction. As far as I know right now, it’s not gonna be anyone else, so I’m very grateful for that.”
Davey Boy Smith Jr. had previously revealed he had talks with WWE regarding a possible return to the company. We will have to see whether he comes back or not.
