The World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) Hall of Fame is a hall of fame for professional wrestlers maintained by WWE. It was officially created on the February 1, 1993 episode of the World Wrestling Federation's (WWF), the predecessor of WWE, Monday Night Raw television program.

On this episode, the sole induction of WWF alumnus André the Giant, who had died the previous week (January 27, 1993), was announced; his death was the reason for the creation of the Hall of Fame.

After André's induction, the WWF continued the process of inducting members into the Hall of Fame. For these inductions, ceremonies were held to formally induct the candidates from 1994 to 1996; no video footage has ever been released by WWE of these ceremonies. After the 1996 ceremony, the WWF stopped the inductions of wrestling personalities into the Hall of Fame without a formal announcement.
In 2004, WWE relaunched the Hall of Fame to coincide with the twentieth anniversary of WrestleMania.

This ceremony, like its predecessors, was not broadcasted on television, however, it was released on DVD on June 1, 2004.

Beginning with the 2005 ceremony, WWE broadcasted the final few inductions into the Hall of Fame on Spike TV (2005) and on the USA Network (2006 - present); these were aired on tape delay. The first inductions were broadcast on WWE's official website. The 2008 edition of the Hall of Fame was broadcasted live on the USA Network. Since 2005, the Hall of Fame ceremony has been packaged as part of that year's WrestleMania DVD release. Although a building has never been built to represent the Hall of Fame, WWE has sought into constructing a facility for the Hall of Fame. WWE's Executive Vice President of Global Media Shane McMahon has stated that the WWE has been storing wrestling memorabilia in a warehouse for years, and that all items are categorized and dated in case a facility is created.

Induction into the Hall of Fame is dependent upon whether the candidate is on good terms with WWE. Former WWE employees who often criticize WWE or currently work with a different promotion have not been inducted. Others, such as Bruno Sammartino, the longest-reigning WWE Champion in the title's history, are alienated from the promotion and refuse to be inducted, despite having been asked several times.

As of 2008, there have been a total of 68 inductees, with 60 members inducted individually and four tag teams inducted. Thirteen of the inductees have been inducted posthumously. André's sole induction was the least amount of inductions into the Hall of Fame in one year, while 2004 had the most, with 11. (Credit: Wikipedia).
