Wrestling / WWE Hall of Fame

Go To

The WWE Hall of Fame is a hall of fame for wrestling personalities that are, or were, connected to the WWE. The first induction to the Hall of Fame was in 1993. After the 1996 inductions, it was put on hiatus until 2004, where it was relaunched as part of the build to WrestleMania.

Wrestlers can either be inducted individually or as a group. The Hall of Fame also has a "Celebrity" wing, instituted in 2004, to induct non-wrestling celebrities who participated or contributed to WWE in some way. In 2015, WWE introduced the Warrior Award for those who have "exhibited unwavering strength and perseverance, and who lives life with the courage and compassion that embodies the indomitable spirit of the Ultimate Warrior." The next year WWE introduced a new category for the Hall of Fame called the "Legacy" wing. Inductees under this new category feature wrestlers from the early years of professional wrestling, primarily during the early part of the 20th century.
