Although he is a dead certainty to enter the WWE Hall of Fame at some point in the near future – and it would have to be considered a travesty if he were not – The Undertaker may have to wait a little while to be officially confirmed as one.
The WWE Universe widely respect everything that The Deadman has managed to achieve in the company ever since arriving, with many believing he is one of the greatest characters to have ever been created in the whole of professional wrestling. Indeed, many bettors – including experts from betting24.se – will belive The Phenom is one of the best to have every existed.
Naturally, he will be associated with the streak that he managed to keep going at Wrestlemania until he was beaten by Brock Lesnar in what will have been one of the most shocking moments to have ever happened in the ring throughout the history of the WWE.
However, it would seem that The Phenom will have to wait a number of years before he will enter into the WWE Hall of Fame officially.
According to Dave Meltzer – who is a reliable insider for all things professional wrestling – of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, via wrestlingnews, The Undertaker is likely to be part of the 2022 WWE Hall of FAme class as the company would rather have a full crowd in attendance for his induction, rather than no fans at all.
Of course, the current world situation does not allow for fans to be in attendance for many sporting events. Indeed, with a moment as monumental as The Undertaker’s induction, fans are going to want to be in attendance as it will be ‘once in a lifetime’ moment.
Indeed, it should not come as a surprise that Vince McMahon would want to delay The Undertaker’s Hall of Fame induction for as long as possible, as the event will likely be a cash cow for the company.
Meltzer has also revealed that the 2020 Hall of Fame induction ceremony is likely to take place virtually in 2021 as it was initially postponed because of the virus outbreak.
The 2020 WWE Hall of Fame class already has a number of top wrestlers from the past all featuring, with many of them having been main eventers during their respective careers and time with the company.
Individuals such as Batista, John Bradshaw Layfield (JBL), The Bella Twins, The New World Order, Davey Boy Smith and Jushin Thunder Liger have already been announced as inductees to the latest class.
