Reliable WWE rumormonger WrestleVotes is at it again. After teasing it on Twitter all day, they have revealed two acts that could make their way into WWE’s Hall of Fame this year. Both picks are surprising in their own right, for very different reasons. According to the tweet, The Bella Twins and Jushin ‘Thunder’ Liger will be joining The NWO and Batista in the class of 2020.
I’ve heard several names talked about for this years Hall of Fame. Was only able to get confirmation on 2 of them as of now, they are: The Bella Twins & Jushin ‘Thunder’ Liger.

Jushin ‘Thunder’ Liger is a storied veteran of Japan that just had his last match last month at NJPW’s Wrestle Kingdom event. He doesn’t have an extensive WWE career, but he did wrestle on one of the earliest NXT TakeOver broadcasts against Tyler Breeze.
The Bella Twins had a long tenure in WWE, both as guest host escorts and in-ring performers. They were dominant champions of the last years of WWE Divas and mixed it up with the rising Four Horsewomen and others coming out of NXT to redefine women’s wrestling.
Although they have both retired from competition, The Bellas were active as of 2018, competing in the main event of WWE Evolution. If confirmed, their inclusion in 2020 is practically a first-ballot induction, which could rub some fans the wrong way considering some of the other legends from years past that haven’t yet received the honor. Fans will be fans, and we’ll see if WrestleVotes is correct as we continue down the road to WrestleMania.
