The WWE Universe struggled to hold back tears as The Undertaker delivered an emotional Hall of Fame speech last night.

Mark Calaway, the man behind The Undertaker's legendary character, finally secured his well-deserved spot in the WWE Hall of Fame. He headlined the Class of 2022 and delivered an incredibly heartfelt speech, looking back at his illustrious career.

The Deadman thanked fans for supporting him through thick and thin. He also heaped praise on several legends of the past, his family, and most importantly, WWE Chairman Vince McMahon. He received a loud standing ovation from fans and fellow WWE Superstars.

The Undertaker's iconic 30-year WWE run began at Survivor Series 1990. It was a time when over-the-top characters were the norm. Fans were beyond intrigued by this mysterious entity that possessed supernatural powers. The character stood the test of time and was insanely popular when the Monday Night Wars came around. The Undertaker was one of WWE's biggest assets in the war against WCW.

In 2001, WWE bought WCW, marking the dawning of a new era. The Phenom remained a top attraction for several more years, with his popularity growing with time. He turned into a mainstream star and was one of the most recognizable WWE Superstars. His legendary WrestleMania streak became a major USP for The Show of Shows. It ended at 21-1 when Brock Lesnar beat him at WrestleMania XXX.
