Ozzy Osbourne will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.
Our Dave Meltzer reports that Osbourne was part of the combined 2020/2021 WWE Hall of Fame ceremony, which was taped last week. Osbourne did not appear in person at the ceremony, but did record a video message for the show. Osbourne’s induction was expected after he was featured in a commercial for the Hall of Fame that aired on SmackDown.
Osbourne, 72, has made several cameo appearances for WWE over the years, most notably at WrestleMania 2, where he and Captain Lou Albano managed The British Bulldogs in their WWF Tag Team Championship win over Brutus Beefcake and Greg Valentine. Osbourne performed live at a May 2007 SmackDown taping in Baltimore, and later served as a guest host for Raw in November 2009.
Osbourne joins the 2020 and 2021 WWE Hall of Fame classes comprised of Davey Boy Smith, JBL, Jushin Liger, The nWo, The Bella Twins, William Shatner, Warrior Award winner Titus O’Neil, Molly Holly, Eric Bischoff, Rob Van Dam, Kane, and The Great Khali.
