The Undertaker

Initially, we were hesitant to rank the Undertaker.  It is not that we don’t think he is worthy, as Mark Callaway is about a sure thing for the Hall of Fame as they come.   The debate for us was do we rank an active member of the WWE roster?

We guess it was the “active” word that made it very easy.  The Undertaker is no longer able to wrestle a full schedule, nor does it look like he has many more matches left in him.  Ideally, we feel we are not alone in the thinking that the perfect in ring career for him would end with another win at Wrestlemania (perhaps this one?) the day after being inducted into the Hall of Fame.  He is the type of performer who would deserve this honor and we would be shocked to see anyone debate this.

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.

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

Why He Will Get In:
If we have to tell you, this is not the section of the website for you.

Why He Won’t Get In:
We can’t think of one logical reason.


1.  Won his first WWF World Heavyweight Title defeating Hulk Hogan at the Survivor Series (11/27/91)
2.  Pioneered the Hell in the Cell concept in five star match with Shawn Michaels (10/5/97)
3.  Defeated Batista at Wrestlemania in a match that stole the show (4/1/07)
4.  Retired Shawn Michaels at Wrestlemania in the Match of the Year (3/28/10)
5.  Wrestlemania match with Triple H that was highly emotional and was ten times better than anyone expected it to be (4/3/11)

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

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