The Undertaker has been in the wrestling industry for a long time. Launched in 1987, The Undertaker became an overnight sensation and kept its star shining for a long time. But even after his retirement and induction into the Hall of Fame, Mark Calaway (the real name of The Undertaker) followed his passion for wrestling.
Before being inducted by WWE into the Hall of Fame, Taker gave an unconventional speech. Although the norm is for a dear friend or family of the inductee to present the legend, they come out and talk on the podium. But being the Undertaker, Calaway wanted to connect with his audience one last time before leaving the ring.
The Undertaker talks Hall of Fame speech
In an interview with Sports Illustrated, The Undertaker, “I knew I had to do something different. Little did I know that I was going to completely reinvent the wheel. It was the first time in a live atmosphere that I showed the man behind the hat. As JBL told me afterwards, “What a roll of the dice.” I was really happy with how it went.”
Not only was he seen in costume circling the ring, but he was also emotional in front of the WWE Universe. His speech enlightened many hearts and inspired us even more. While his in-ring presence may have left us behind, many projects related to him give us a clear picture of who he was as a person.
The speech delivered at the Hall of Fame ceremony shocked many. While many hoped to see The Phenom in his outfit for the last time, Taker shocked the WWE Universe with the best speech the ceremony will ever see.
The Show 1 DeadMan
A big thing that WWE announced a few days ago, fans can meet The Undertaker face to face. At the Nashville show, which is scheduled to take place before SummerSlam, he’ll reveal some spicy stories from his 3 decorated decades in the industry. Cheekily called the 1 deadMan Show, having fun with the pun on a 1-man show. It will only be The Undertaker and his fans.

Although we desperately want this to be an online event as well, WWE has not released any statement about it. Let us know in the comments if you’ll be attending an evening with The Undertaker live.
