Reason Why WWE is Holding Next Year's Hall of Fame on a Friday

– It seems the reason that the Hall of Fame at next year’s WrestleMania will take place on a Friday instead of a Saturday is purely due to logistics.

– WWE is going to be holding the Hall of Fame, the NXT show, Raw and Smackdown all in the same arena and so if they scheduled it where the Hall of Fame would be on Saturday, it would mean they would have to set up the arena for a live show on Friday, take it all down on Saturday and then reset it all up again for Monday and Tuesday.

– The way it is now planned, they can stage the Hall of Fame, take it down once and go with the arena setup for the Saturday-Tuesday shows.
