The Undertaker Reveals He Turned Down First WWE Hall of Fame Induction Offer

The Undertaker Reveals He Turned Down First WWE Hall of Fame Induction Offer

The Dallas Morning News recently interviewed The Undertaker, who discussed his upcoming WWE Hall of Fame induction and revealed he turned down the initial offer to join the Hall of Fame after his match with Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 30. 

The Undertaker on his Class of 2022 Hall of Fame induction:

"I’m, honestly, I’m a bit overwhelmed right now with the speech. It’s like — it’s the closest thing that I’ve had to do since putting a WrestleMania match together. And you know, I’ve been pretty much pressure free for the last couple of years since the Boneyard match. And you know, after a 30-plus year career with the WWE, the speech, and trying to be different, and not give the same thing that most people do, it’s become a task all to itself."

On turning down the WWE Hall of Fame:

"As far as when, this is actually the second time that I was invited to the Hall Of Fame, so I wasn’t as shocked this time. I turned it down the first time because I knew I had unfinished business. I wasn’t at that place yet where I was ready to let go and say that it’s over. So, this time, I’ve made my peace, and I’m just honored and humbled that they would induct me."

On when WWE offered him the Hall of Fame the first time: 

"It was…my goodness…It was I want to say after the Brock WrestleMania [WrestleMania 30]. Yeah, I think it was after that. In my head, I couldn’t end on a match that I didn’t remember. I got concussed, and I don’t remember even having that match. So I wanted to at least have a match that I could remember, so I kept working here and there for the next few years, and then trying to leave on that upbeat note. And then you know, fortunately, we had the Boneyard match and I said, ‘Alright, that’s it. I think I’m good. It’s time to call it a day.’ And here we are."
