The 2009 WWE Hall of Fame on Saturday in Houston, TX at the Toyota Center was a legit sellout of 11,000 fans. This was the biggest crowd for a WWE Hall of Fame ceremony in company history.
This was the first Hall of Fame event where WWE did not give out free programs or special coins about the event for fans in attendance. They instead sold programs for $20.
