The Undertaker debuted for the company in 1990 and went on to become one of the most iconic characters ever. He has held multiple world championships throughout his career and notably owned a 21 match winning streak at WrestleMania. The WrestleMania streak ended at WrestleMania 30 with a loss to Brock Lesnar.
WWE also announced that for the first time ever, the Hall of Fame ceremony would take place live at the American Airlines Arena in Dallas on the same night that Smackdown emanates from the same building. Both go down on April 1, the night before WrestleMania 38 at AT&T Stadium.
