Undertaker to be the headliner for the HOF this year? (Speculation Thread)

This is not confirmed or denied just pure speculation but could The Undertaker be the headliner for the HOF this year?

WWE tends to always announce the headliners for the HOF first in order to help with ticket sales. Last year on the 2nd Raw of the new year Sting was announced as the headliner for the 2016 Hall of Fame. 2 years ago on the 2nd Raw of the new year Ultimate Warrior was announced as the headliner.

Now we all know Undertaker has said he is a Smackdown guy but all of a sudden he showing up on a random Raw? Now it could just be him hyping up the Royal Rumble and to announce he is entering the rumble match and to warn the Raw superstars he is coming for them. But its the 2nd Raw of the new year, HOF tickets should be going on sale soon I think there is a chance he could be announced as the headliner for the 2017 HOF. They need a big headliner. Goldberg is busy competing, while i think The Rock could headline and should this year he could be busy with movies thus preventing him, and Daniel Bryan a for sure headliner probably doesnt want to go in right now. So that leaves Undertaker

IMO I don't think Undertaker will ever go into the HOF while he is still active in the ring just cause of his character but with WWE you never know with them.

Re: Undertaker to be the headliner for the HOF this year? (Speculation Thread)

I'm not really a big believer in this philosophy that a performer should go into the HoF only after they've hung up their boots. Once someone has achieved a certain level of calibre in their craft backed up by a highly significant duration of them performing at the highest level, there is no coherent reason IMO to hold back the applause. If it were to me, I would have put him the HoF around 2005 itself. He's earned it, immensely and is 10 years overdue atleast. Speaking of delayed inductions, the hell's Rock still not in the HoF for? Dude hasn't wrestled for 4 years barring the blink and you miss charade against Rowan last year, there is no point speculating over his future.. just put the dude in already. It's getting embarrassing that one of the biggest stars of all time is still not in the HoF, like 15 years after the end of his full time career.

Maybe the Rock himself is saying no to the HOF for now? Hell i thought 100% he was gonna be the headliner for Miami in 2012. Maybe he is telling Vince no HOF just yet cause he wants to have a proper last match.

He had the perfect last match IMO at WM29 but he kinda through all that away at WM32

Yeah, it's possible. But still I believe he should be persuaded to be put in ASAP, because every passing year is a year wasted and a sort of disrespect to the body of work that he has exhibited IMO. He represents the absolute zenith of what sports entertainment had to offer and his induction should be fast-tracked before seeing even more of his contemporaries getting in before him (no disrespect to any of them but The Rock definitely deserves the pole position here).

It's Goldberg this year. He'll have at least one more match after his induction but once his run is done he'll disappear.

Not removing until:
[ ] I outsmart Batko(Now I'll never get a chance )

If anyone is interested in purchasing ultra rare footage of Pat Patterson winning the first Intercontinental Championship in Rio de Janeiro just send me your PayPal username and password and I'll take care of the rest.

I begin to think, that a calm is not desirable in any situation in life....Man was made for action and for bustle too, I believe - Abigail Adams

I imagine there will be some down time before his induction. I just don't see it happening this year.
