Real Reason Behind Bray Wyatt’s WWE Hall Of Fame Induction Delay

Bray Wyatt WWE Champion

Bray Wyatt’s WWE Hall of Fame induction will have to wait.

Bray Wyatt sadly passed away on August 24th, 2023 after battling with illness for much of the year. The star had arguably never been more popular with WWE fans after returning to the company at Extreme Rules the previous October.

Wyatt was just 36 years old at the time of his passing, and many fans expected him to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame at the earliest opportunity. However, this won’t be the case.

Interestingly, Bray Wyatt had been scheduled to be part of the class of 2024 but plans changed.

Why Were Plans For Bray Wyatt Changed?

On March 18th it was announced that a new Bray Wyatt documentary is coming to Peacock on April 1st. The film features a never-before-seen look into the creative powerhouse that crafted the Bray Wyatt character with contributions from John Cena, Becky Lynch, Triple H, Hulk Hogan, and Bray’s brother Taylor Rotunda (Bo Dallas).

The project will be narrated by WWE legend The Undertaker.

According to a report from Dave Meltzer in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the documentary was a big reason why Wyatt’s Hall of Fame induction has been delayed.

I was told this had something to do with the decision not to induct Wyatt into the Hall of Fame this year, that this year they were doing the big documentary for him and would induct him later. Undertaker, billed as Mark William Calaway, will be doing the narration. They interviewed his family as well as Hogan, Cena, Lynch, HHH and Taylor Rotunda (Bo Dallas). There are also interviews with him throughout his career and never seen before footage.

The WWE Hall of Fame class of 2024 will be headlined by Paul Heyman, and he’ll be joined by Bull Nakano, Thunderbolt Patterson, The US Express, and Muhammad Ali. It’s been reported that The Rock’s grandmother will be added to the list.
