World Wrestling Entertainment announced this morning that it will hold a special celebration next month to commemorate the 20th anniversary of its renowned Hall of Fame not existing.
“I can’t believe it’s been two decades since we first invented our imaginary Hall of Fame,” said WWE Chairman Vince McMahon in a press release.
“Millions of tourists would have visited the Hall of Fame by now, if it were an actual thing.”
The WWE Hall of Fame was launched in 1993 during an episode of Monday Night Raw, and its first inductee — whose memorabilia would be displayed in an ornate wing of the Hall of Fame, if it weren’t imaginary — was Andre the Giant.
Dozens of legendary wrestlers have been inducted into the Hall of Fame over the past two decades, forever enshrined in a beautiful museum whose only shortcoming is its utter failure to exist.
WWE allegedly had plans to build an actual Hall of Fame last year, but those plans were abandoned in favor of creating and relentlessly promoting a smartphone app.
Since his own induction into the Hall of Fame last April, Bruno Sammartino has been driving around Stamford in circles looking for the elusive building, since Triple H convinced him it was a real thing.
