The WWE Hall of Fame ceremony is a yearly event to pay tribute to the legendary names that had graced the pro wrestling ring. The annual tradition will continue to honor more such names during the upcoming Wrestlemania season but things will be different the next time around as Triple H will be running things from behind for the very first time.

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that the WWE Hall of Fame falls under Triple H, after the departure of Vince McMahon from the creative oversight. While the foundational principles for inductions will remain unchanged, some new norms could be seen under Triple H’s direction.

Triple H to call the shots for 2024 WWE Hall of Fame inductees

It was further informed that the selection process could still be influenced by political considerations if WWE President Nick Khan advocates for a particular candidate. But then again, the WWE Hall of Fame falls under the creative domain, and Triple H will take the final calls while selecting the names,

“I think Levesque may be a little more open to certain types since he was a fan of more than just WWE but once WWE owned the tape libraries a lot of that stigma was gone. I was told that, for example, if there is a political reason to put someone in that Nick Khan would want, that would be a factor but the Hall of Fame is under creative and that’s Levesque’s department and he’d in theory sign off on everyone.”

Unlike Vince McMahon who was keen on appreciating talents who had mostly served WWE in the past, Triple H is known for his broader vision. He has no issues against wrestling beyond the WWE, and hence it will be interesting to see whom he opts to induct apart from the first ballot WWE Hall of Fame for the 2024 class.

There’s no update on who WWE will announce as part of the 2024 edition of Hall of Fame, the company recently released new merchandise for Ken Shamrock which keeps the former WWE Intercontinental Champion in conversation. Since Wrestlemania will take place in Philadelphia, some believe some ECW involvement, is evident. In 2023, Rey Mysterio, Stacy Keibler, the late Andy Kaufman, and The Great Muta were the inductees.
