Congrats to The Godfather of pro wrestling, the Phenom, the Undertaker… for being inducted into the WWE HOF. Nobody deserves it more than you my friend. #itstrue @undertaker pic.twitter.com/OIboNS2go5

As a kid I was captivated by his awe-inspiring entrances and now he enters the #WWEHOF to be forever immortalized.

There will NEVER be anyone who had a run like Taker – both in and out of the ring. 30+ years on top, multiple eras, led by example, and made everyone around him better!
The true MOST VALUABLE PLAYER of all time!

Absolutely no one has had as big an effect over as long of a career as @Undertaker. He is the measuring stick of this industry, in and out of the ring, and now takes his well-deserved place in the #WWEHOF! https://t.co/cyRwg68kqK

I’ve had the pleasure (and often times pain) of being in the ring with @Undertaker throughout both of our careers. I count him among the absolute best and someone I consider a close friend. Congratulations and welcome to the #WWEHOF club!!! https://t.co/rT8NGyifU7

Of all the amazing moments I’ve been lucky enough to experience, to this day, NOTHING takes my breath away like the toll of The Deadman’s bell.
