One of the greatest Superstars of all time, Undertaker is undoubtedly the most compelling character in the history of the business. He received his well-deserved induction into the Hall of Fame this year in his home state of Texas. The creator behind the Undertaker’s character and former WWE Chairman Vince McMahon himself introduced the man behind this iconic dark gimmick to Mark Callaway.
The ceremony took place at a sold-out American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas, alongside other additions in the form of the Steiner Brothers, Queen Sharmell, Vader and Warrior Award winner Shad Gaspard. Numerous WWE Superstars and Legends were in attendance to celebrate the night including Triple H, Kane, Rand Orton, Shawn Michaels, The Godfather, Stephanie and Vince McMahon and many more.
Taker received the last spot for coming out and gave an all-timer speech in front of everyone. Callaway was more prominent in the WWE Universe than a man in hats and a black coat. The speech brought tears and emotion to the eyes of the legendary superstar and all viewers.
The Godfather recently revealed an interesting and fulfilling incident related to Taker’s HOF induction. He revealed that Vince McMahon walked up to that aisle and shook his hands and said “thank you” for being there. He also said that Vince even wished him happy birthday on May 16 during a recent conversation with Two Man Power of Wrestling Trip on the podcast.
“On my birthday, May 16th, Vince [McMahon] said: ‘Happy birthday, big man.’ If that doesn’t say enough, I don’t know what to say. I don’t know how many people he wishes happy birthday to. During Undertaker’s induction into the Hall of Fame, Vince walks all the way down the aisle, you know, with the aisle he’s doing, and he goes back, doesn’t flip anyone, doesn’t flip anyone. He comes up to me, shakes my hand and says, “Thanks for being here, Charles.”

Undertaker and Godfather are close friends
The two men have known each other for a long time and their friendship extends beyond wrestling. Although Charles (godfather’s name) has not had much success as a singles competitor in WWE, he did once win the prestigious Intercontinental Championship, which he only held for less than 40 days.
Prior to this year’s Hall of Fame ceremony, The Godfather has made sporadic appearances with WWE in the past, where he also performed for the 25th anniversary of Monday Night Raw. Both The Undertaker and The Godfather had reminisced about their eventful pasts in WWE’s The Bump.
