There is no doubt in anyone's mind that The Undertaker will take his place in the WWE Hall of Fame one day, but who would have thought it would be so soon?
The former World Champion has defined a generation and was the holder of the longest undefeated streak in the history of Sports Entertainment until this year, and now he will be set to add a Hall of Fame ring to his list of accolades, according to reports.
It seems The Deadman could be set to be inducted this year if it's not possible for him to perform at WrestleMania 31. This would then explain why he is a part of the graphics for next year's "showcase of the immortals" and even printed on the production trucks.
Is this the end?
The shock is not that The Undertaker could be inducted into the Hall of Fame, it's that he is going in so early. With the recent reports and photos showing Undertaker is no longer the healthy wrestler he used to be, there has been speculation that he wasn't going to be a part of the spectacular he basically defined.
This way Undertaker will still be a part of WrestleMania 31, but just as a cameo appearance and finally he will take his place amongst wrestling's elite.

Undertaker isn't the only one who looks set to be inducted this year as The "Macho Man" Randy Savage looks to have finally got the nod.
Other greats to be honored
The long overdue induction of Randy Savage could see his brother Lanny Poffo accept on his behalf after his passing in the Spring of 2011. Popular belief is that Hulk Hogan will be inducting Savage into the class of 2015.
The thought is that if Undertaker is cleared to wrestle at the end of March then Randy Savage will be inducted and Undertaker will be saved until next year. If Undertaker is incapable of competing then it will be the other way around. Word is that WWE thinks the two are to big of superstars to be inducted at the same time.
Other reports finally have Sting set to inducted, after his explosive debut at Survivor Series, it seems the former TNA wrestler is set for an epic match the following night at Wrestlemania. If he is inducted, he will be the first wrestler to go into the Hall of Fame and be competing the following night at Wrestlemania.
Sting will be inducted based on his accomplishments in WCW and is set to have his only match for WWE at Wrestlemania 31 against either The Undertaker or Triple H. The 56-year-old wants to wrestle just one farewell match for WWE on the grandest stage of them all.
