PWInsider:

When WWE taped the WWE Hall of Fame proceedings last week, they were different from any previous HOF presentation in that there were no official inductors for the Hall of Fame inductees. PWInsider.com is told that in many, if not all cases, WWE ran a video package for each inductee then introduced them to give a speech accepting the honor.

Due to the sheer amount of talents involved this year with the company inducting the 2020 and 2021 Classes, the speeches were kept to a very brief minimum, in some cases as short as 4-5 minutes. We are told that for speeches that ran long, there will likely be editing involved.

Jushin Liger was not in attendance and accepted via video.

William Shatner is considered part of the 2020 Class, which had not announced an official Celebrity inductee last year before it was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
