WWE Hall of Fame Taking Place on Friday Night, Austin Aries Injury Photo, Update on WrestleMania 33 Tickets
– The 2017 WWE Hall of Fame ceremony will take place on Friday, March 31st, 2017 from the Amway Center in Orlando. The ceremony usually takes place on the Saturday night before WrestleMania. The WWE NXT Takeover event for WrestleMania 33 weekend will be held that Saturday night instead.
– We noted earlier today that Austin Aries suffered an injury after taking a kick from WWE NXT Champion Shinsuke Nakamura at Thursday’s NXT live event in Fresno, California. We have video from the injury at this link. The referee immediately threw up the dreaded “X” and the match was stopped but Aries did leave on his own. He tweeted this graphic photo today:
