The Undertaker Will Be Inducted Into The WWE Hall Of Fame At WrestleMania 38

The Undertaker will join WWE's Hall of Fame, as the Superstar will be inducted at this year's ceremony on WrestleMania weekend.

Taker one of the most famous and instantly recognisable WWE Superstars of all time is the first person to be announced for this year's class at the Hall of Fame ceremony.

The induction will take place on April 1st, the night before WWE's first ever two night 'Mania' that will be in front of a full crowd on both nights, having previously done it with no fans or a half full stadium.

This year's ceremony will take play on a Friday night and will be at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, and for the first time ever will take place in on the same night, in the same venue, as SmackDown.

Other star names will be named in the coming weeks but Taker is likely to be the headline star being inducted into this year's class.

Taker, also known as Mark Calaway, has had an incredible career in WWE, stretching over three decades and seeing him win a number of accolades.

The superstar is best known for his amazing record at 'Mania,' where he went undefeated for his first 21 appearances at the company's biggest event of the year.

His 21-0 run was known as 'the Streak' and saw him collect more back-to-back wins at the event than anyone else, by some distance, starting in 1991 and ending in 2014.

The Streak was eventually ended in shocking circumstances at WrestleMania 30 when he was beaten by Brock Lesnar, with the crowd falling silent for a moment.

Calaway, 56-years-old, last performed in a fight at WrestleMania 36, defeating AJ Styles in their brilliant Boneyard Match, and has only appeared on a couple of occasions since.

His official retirement came at Survivor Series 2020, when he appeared at the end and gave a speech, but was a farewell in front of no fans.

He will finally get to say goodbye at the weekend that 'belonged' to him for so many years and saw many of his most iconic moments, in front of a home crowd, having been born in Texas.

The Deadman may not be the only iconic name from the 'Attitude Era' to appear the first weekend of April, with claims that Stone Cold Steve Austin is set to fight for the first time since 2003.
