It looks like the biggest event of the Summer could end up hosting the 2020 WWE Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony.
Apparently WWE is talking about moving the annual induction ceremony that honors past legends of the company from its' originally advertised date of Thursday, April 2nd from Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida to WWE SummerSlam Weekend later this year.

"Just a heads up," wrote Georgia earlier today. "I have spoken with WWE and they are postponing the Hall of Fame for a later date, and are hoping to do it for Summerslam (which would be appropriate for my dad)," she continued.
Her tweet concluded, "Thanks again for all your support! Let's all stay safe out there.
De to the coronavirus pandemic confirming the move of WrestleMania 36 and axing all of the WrestleMania Weekend events scheduled to emanate from the Tampa Bay region, the belief was that the 2020 induction ceremony would take place at the WWE Performance Center, along with the originally dubbed "NXT TakeOver: Tampa Bay" event.
Currently scheduled to be inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame as part of the 2020 class this year are Bulldog, Batista, the nWo (Hulk Hogan, Scott Hall, Kevin Nash and Sean Waltman), JBL, The Bella Twins and Jushin "Thunder" Liger.
