2. The Undertaker
When we began this website, The Undertaker was one we debated on ranking as he was still a semi-active performer.  As we are re-writing this, the Taker just completed his emotional retirement match against Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania 33, and reminded us all again why this one of the most important wrestlers in our generation.

The Undertaker came a long way from being just another big man in WCW. Upon entering the World Wrestling Federation, Callaway was dubbed the Undertaker, and created the most durable character in WWE history.  Regardless of the era, the Undertaker was at the top of the card and changed with the times.  He created multi dimensional layers to a character that did not seem capable of having them.  He emerged as the locker room leader and among being one of the most decorated professional wrestlers in history he is also among the most respected.

He would win many titles in the WWE, but he was one of those rare performers who never needed one.  Taker’s character had supernatural powers, yet it never seemed hokey, an incredible testament to the believability that he was he able to exude.  As he grew in the ring, he showcased a well-rounded skill set, and despite his high level of success he achieved, it can be argued that he was actually underrated as a worker.

The induction of the Undertaker to the WWE Hall of Fame should be a no-brainer.  It is just a matter of time.

Does he deserve it? Yes. Will it happen? Very much so. Would I like it? Of course! Multiple World Champion, 23wins at Wrestlemania, a WWE career which lasted for over 2 and a half decades, one of the most popular wrestlers on this planet, astonishing gimmick, constantly in the Upper Card/Main Event (despite him never being THE face of the company, like Hulk Hogan, Bret Hart, Stone Cold, The Rock, John Cena), participated in countless gimmick matches (Casket, Buried Alive, Boiler Room, Biker, Hell in a Cell, to only name a few)....
Undertaker has done it all and the WWE Hall of Fame is the perfect ceremony to honor his remarkable legacy.

The Undertaker should go in because of all of his work in the WWF/E. He should also go in because of his gimmick.

Usually putting ppl in the hall of fame means they gotta give a speech, but thatd kinda ruin his persona.
