On April 6th, WWE held its annual Hall of Fame ceremony at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans, Louisiana. The likes of Goldberg, the Dudley Boyz, Ivory, Jeff Jarrett and others were given the opportunity to reflect on their lives in wrestling and thank the individuals who impacted their careers the most. The event is presented as an emotional experience to celebrate wrestling’s history two days before making new history during WrestleMania weekend. For many wrestlers, managers and their families, it’s a way to cap off their career and be recognized for their contributions for the industry they helped build and (hopefully still) love and appreciate. For fans, it’s a chance to pay tribute to their childhood heroes and say thank you for all the memories. For this writer, however, it is time to shake things up again, to borrow a television line from Mr. McMahon.

Personally, I’m not a huge fan of the presentation of the ceremony. It’s not that I’m against the idea of WWE honoring past performers on a night the whole industry is located in one city. I just think that the ceremony should be “classed up” a bit: It should be held in a smaller, fancier venue like a dining hall, with only a handful of people outside of guests, talent, personnel, honorees and their family and friends welcome. It’s basically turning the show into an esteemed, black-tie formal event.
