Yes, WrestleMania 36 will take place on April 5 – at the WWE Performance Center – the Hall of Fame 2020 ceremony and NXT TakeOver: Tampa will not be able to take place during this WrestleMania weekend due to measures to combat the spread of the coronavirus.
WWE has not yet announced what will happen to these two events, which are usually inseparable from the annual big show that should have taken place at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. NXT TakeOver is rumored to be replacing the event with a special episode of WrestleMania’s yellow brand week show, still at the Performance Center. As for the Hall of Fame ceremony, it should be postponed to this summer for SummerSlam.

In any case, this is what Gorgia Smith, the daughter of Davey Boy Smith, who posthumously will be introduced into the 2020 class of the WWE Hall of Fame, suggests. “I chatted with WWE and they are postponing the Hall of Fame to a later date and hope to be able to do so for SummerSlam (which would be appropriate for my father), thanks again for the support! Let’s all stay safe. ” she tweeted on Tuesday.
Furthermore, whether it was Justin Thunder Liger, another wrestler of this 2020 class or the family of Davey Boy Smith, they would have been impossible to reach the United States because of the measures against the coronavirus.
The WWE Hall of Fame ceremony is slated for April 2. Davey Boy Smith, Jushin Liger, Batista, the Bella Twins and the nWo clan were to be introduced.
