The Undertaker is one of WWE’s most beloved characters of all time. When he debuted, fans weren’t quite sure what to make of the 1800s funeral director gimmick. Taker’s charisma and dedication to the role resulted in an incredibly long run where his popularity was never in question.

WrestleMania is in Dallas this year, and in addition to bringing back “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, they are also inducting Taker, a Texas native, into the WWE Hall of Fame. This should help move tickets in a big way.

The in-ring career of The Undertaker is over after years of wear and tear on his body. That doesn’t mean he can’t still be involved in WrestleMania. Taker will be there to receive a huge honor in his home state of Texas. WWE announced that The Undertaker will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in Dallas.

“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.

In addition, for the first time in history, WWE will present both Friday Night SmackDown® and the 2022 WWE Hall of Fame Ceremony live on the same night at American Airlines Center, giving all fans in attendance an unprecedented opportunity to witness both events for one price. Tickets for the special 2 for 1 SmackDown + Hall of Fame go on sale this Tuesday, February 22 at 10 AM CT via Ticketmaster. Additional 2022 WWE Hall of Fame inductees will be announced in the near future.

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.”

The Undertaker was a sure bet to become a WWE Hall of Famer. It is a well-deserved place for an icon of the company. Congratulations are in order for this WWE legend!
