Ric Flair says the WWE is building a physical Hall of Fame in Orlando, Florida. Vince McMahon had previously discussed the idea before earlier this year.
The WWE have honored the careers of their wrestlers and on-screen/backstage personalities through inductions in their Hall of Fame since 1993. Andre the Giant was the first person to be inducted and since then there have been 204 inductees.
For all of its history and the legends it houses though, the WWE Hall of Fame does not actually have a physical building or a Hallway of Fame. That however, is to change soon according to WWE Legend and Hall of Famer, Ric Flair.

“WWE is actually in the process of building a Hall of Fame, a physical structure in Orlando,” Ric Flair told ESPN’s The Jump. “It’s been delayed too, due to COVID,”
Flair also revealed that the WWE had purchased a golden robe to be kept in the Hall of Fame location.
“They purchased the robe and wanted to put that in there,” Flair said. “It would be something that I wore [they would showcase] in the Hall.”
Vince McMahon previously spoke on the possibility of having a physical Hall of Fame building.
“Bricks and mortar is something that, generally speaking, we, other than office buildings and office space of course, that we’re not necessarily fond of, but nonetheless, again the interest in that continues to build and it’s still a possibility somewhere down the line,” Vince said during the annual WWE shareholders call.
According to WWE sources have revealed that there is no new updates on plans regarding the construction of a physical Hall of Fame building. None at least beyond what has already been discussed in the past.
