WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2023: Rey Mysterio, Andy Kaufman, Stacy Keibler and The Great Muta inducted
It's been a firm part of WrestleMania season for a while now, but the WWE has certainly been dragging its heels over the Hall of Fame Class of 2023 inductions.
Between Vince McMahon's hokey-cokey (is he out? is he in?), post-COVID issues, Batista's delayed induction and more, it was all a bit up in the air.

Rather than having a full afternoon to itself as in previous years, the 2023 WWE Hall of Fame ceremony will take place right after SmackDown on Friday, March 31 at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angels California.
That's the day before WrestleMania 39 day one, of course.

It wasn't until more than a week into March that the first names was announced, while rumours are still flying around as to who could join them, including the likes of Batista, whose previously-announced induction has been delayed since the COVID-19 pandemic.
Here's who's been announced.

Intriguingly, not only is Rey still an active performer, but he's involved in a pretty high-profile simmering feud with his own son, Dominik, who turned on his dad and joined The Judgment Day, teaming up with Finn Balor, Damian Priest and - of course - Rhea Ripley.
Will Dom give his dad the night off to bask in glory, or will he make his presence felt to ruin the party?
