The Undertaker may go into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2015. According to Dave Meltzer and Bryan Alvarez of F4Wonline.com and “Wrestling Observer Radio,” WWE has a back-up plan for the Deadman should he decide that he doesn’t want to compete on the “Grandest Stage of them All” on March 29.
According to the report, if The Undertaker, real name Mark Calaway, doesn’t compete at WrestleMania 31, there is a good chance that the company inducts him into their Hall of Fame the night before the annual flagship PPV. As of right now, WWE officials want Calaway to wrestle at the event, but if he chooses not to, he may be immortalized with a WWE Hall of Fame induction instead.
As previously reported, it is believed that WWE officials are prepping Bray Wyatt for a bout with The Undertaker at WrestleMania 31. However, ‘Taker’s health and ring shape have been in question since his WrestleMania undefeated streak was conquered by WWE World Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania XXX.
Calaway was taken to a nearby hospital following his bout with Lesnar, suffering multiple injuries including a massive concussion. Whether or not he will be ready to compete on March 29 is something that everyone is asking, but no matter what the answer will be, WWE still wants The Undertaker to be a presence during their biggest show of the year, and will likely give him a Hall of Fame ring if he doesn’t step back inside of the four-sided one.
He deserves the HoF nod, but I believe he has at least one or two more matches left in his tank.
