Tatanka revealed that deal on Twitter last night during Monday Night Raw. WWE.com has posted the following confirmation:
“As he announced via Twitter Monday, Tatanka — a mainstay of WWE programming in both the early 1990s and mid-2000s — has signed a WWE Legends contract. The Native American Superstar was a fan favorite in the WWE Universe, appearing in several WrestleManias, crushing opponents with his End of the Trail finishing maneuver and wowing fans with his signature war dance.”
To understand Tatanka’s dominance and longevity in the wrestling industry, Tatanka won eleven World Heavyweight Championships in eleven different promotions from 1991 through 2014. That’s unbelievable.
From WWE, he won the 1994 Slammy Award for Most Greediest. That’s also unbelievable.
There is no word on if Tatanka will be involved in WWE programming, become a member of the WWE Hall of Fame, or if he’ll just be another legend on the payroll of WWE corporate.
