WWE has confirmed that The Undertaker is going to be inducted into the 2022 Hall of Fame this year.
The Undertaker is one of wrestling most iconic figures, and he’s now going to be honoured with an induction into the WWE Hall of Fame.
The news was confirmed by WWE themselves this afternoon, with the following press release being issued.
WWE (NYSE: WWE) today announced that The Undertaker will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame at a ceremony on Friday, April 1 at American Airlines Center in Dallas as part of WrestleMania® Week.
The event will stream live exclusively on Peacock in the U.S. and WWE Network everywhere else.
The Undertaker is one of the most popular Superstars in WWE history and a pop culture icon.
After making his WWE debut at the 1990 Survivor Series, “The Phenom” went on to hold nearly every major Championship in WWE and has competed in some of the most memorable matches in history over his illustrious 30-year career.
In addition, The Undertaker amassed a historic consecutive 21 year WrestleMania undefeated streak that may never be broken.
In 2020, The Undertaker was featured in the WWE Network docuseries “Undertaker: The Last Ride,” which was praised by both fans and critics and made his “Final Farewell” at Survivor Series.
The Undertaker continues to make appearances outside the ring, most recently appearing in Netflix’s Escape The Undertaker.
For the first time ever, WWE is going to be putting on the Hall of Fame ceremony after the go-home episode of SmackDown before WrestleMania.
The Undertaker is going to be this year’s headliner, with the rest of the wrestlers in the class set to be confirmed over the coming weeks.
Given that the show is in Texas, his home state, it isn’t too surprising to see that The Undertaker wil be inducted into the Hall of Fame, two years after his final match at WrestleMania 36.
