The Undertaker was announced in the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2022 as the only inaugural entrant.
The Undertaker was named as the lone entrant in the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2022. It was a fitting gesture for WWE’s longest surviving superstar who made his debut at Survivor Series in 1990 and brought down the curtains on his career in November 2020, after 30 years. His career saw him become the World Champion for seven times after clinching the maiden belt following his win over Hulk Hogan at the Survivor Series in 1991. The Casket, Buried, Alive and Inferno will always remain a part of his legacy.
WWE Hall of Famer Bully Ray believes that the company should make the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2022 only about The Undertaker to justify his fame and stature. He also suggested that the company should make a big deal of his induction by inviting one and all to the induction show.
“This year’s entire Hall of Fame induction should be about The Undertaker,” Bully said on Monday’s edition of Busted Open Radio. “I think several people should come up and help induct him. I think they can make it a very entertaining show. Taker can talk forever. I think it sells out the American Airlines Arena [in Dallas] on its own.
“That’s how big of a deal The Undertaker being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame is. It’s like, how do you pick just one person to induct him? There are so many people that can do a phenomenal job of inducting him. Why not bring in everybody up there? I am a fan of the Hall of Fame induction behind the night after SmackDown. As a fan, you’re getting a lot of value, you’re getting value for your buck.”
The Undertaker was also known for his entrance which literally gave goosebumps to his fans and followers. It evolved from time to time as his legacy continued to grow in the company.
Bully believes that The Undertaker was unlike any other character at WWE and, perhaps, the biggest creation in the history of the company.
“Let’s do something different because this character is unlike any other,” Bully stressed. “It’s the greatest creation in the history of WWE. And when I say creation, remember this [character] is from the mind of Vince McMahon. Look at what this character has turned into.
“Yes, I understand that Steve Austin evolved from The Ringmaster to Stone Cold, but it wasn’t an original, organic idea that was put into play from Day 1 and became this larger than life character in pro wrestling. You can’t say that about anyone else but The Undertaker,” he added.
