On February 18th, WWE announced that The Undertaker is headed to the WWE Hall of Fame. In addition, the Deadman announced his retirement from the company at Survivor Series 2020. After spending three long decades in the wrestling business, the WWE legend will take his rightful place on April 1st in Dallas.
Former WWE Superstar Bubba Ray Dudley has a notable sentiment on The Phenom’s induction in WWE HOF. He suggested that The Deadman should be the solitary inductee in the 2022 class of the Hall of Fame. Well, the legacy of The Big Evil is beyond words. So many people and wrestlers may believe that he should be the sole inductee for this years’ Hall of Fame.
However, the six-time World Champion Booker T doesn’t think The Undertaker should be inducted solo.
Booker T shared his thoughts about whether or not The Undertaker should be the sole inductee!
During his latest edition of the Hall of Fame podcast, Booker T said, “My thing is that’s going to be a short night or a long night, one of the two. I’m serious because the only way I see that happening is a bunch of guys coming up there to tell a bunch of stories to put themselves over.”
The six-time World Champion thinks if other wrestlers came to Dallas to share their memories with The Undertaker and he is the only inductee, then it’s possible. But the WWE Superstar also stated that personally, he does not want to hear those types of stories.
The question remains, can The Phenom appear on the stage to entertain the Dallas crowd for two hours? “I don’t think The Undertaker actually would want to do something like that. The one thing about the Hall of Fame ceremony for me has always been, when these guys finally get that moment, damn it, they go up there, and they don’t want to leave,” Booker T answered.
Does The Phenom need someone else to headline him?
Booker T is a two-time Hall of Famer, and he understands what happens at Hall of Fame ceremony night. “I’m sure The Undertaker is going to want to come out, say what he has to say, and he’s going to want to get the hell up out of there, and I think we are going to need more people to actually have a show other than just The Undertaker,” Booker T added.
The WWE Superstar assumes that even The Deadman needs an opening act if he is a show’s main event. Indeed, the future Hall of Famer’s legacy is unprecedented.
But should The Undertaker be a solitary inductee at the 2022 WWE Hall of Fame? Only time will tell what the WWE has planned to honor the endowment of The Undertaker.
