Kane and The Great Khali were revealed as the next inductees into the WWE Hall of Fame on March 24, with Kane's announcement made by The Undertaker on WWE The Bump and Khali's announcement made by Ranjin Singh on WWE Now India.
Khali first entered the Hall of Fame as part of a special presentation during the 2014 WWE Hall of Fame Weekend. He was introduced by The King himself, Ric Flair, who called him "the most dominant force in pro wrestling today".
As noted, Kane will be the next person to enter the Hall, which means there will be three new members added to the roster this year. The 2017 class will be announced at some point before April 5; details on who will be adding themself to the prestigious list of past inductees will be released at that time.
WWE announced on March 24, 2021 that The Great Khali would be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2021. He will be the first member of the DDP family to be enshrined.
The Great Khali was a professional wrestler who had a successful career from 1998 until 2011 with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). During his time in the company, he won multiple championships including the WWE Tag Team Championship three times. His greatest period in WWE came between 2004 and 2008 when he was part of the Monday Night Raw roster. During this time, he held the WWE Undisputed Champion title.
He started his professional wrestling career in India where he became one of the top stars of the Indian wrestling scene. In 1998, he came to America to pursue a wrestling career and immediately made an impact by winning the World X Cup Tournament at WrestleMania 20. Since then, he has gone on to become one of the most popular wrestlers in the company.
After retiring from in-ring competition in 2011, he stayed with the company in various backstage roles such as authority figure for their developmental territory NXT or management consultant. In April 2015, it was reported that The Great Khali would be returning to the ring for one last match at WrestleMania 31 before retiring again.
The Undertaker was widely expected to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame this year, but that was not the case. The classes of 2020 and 2021 were officially accepted into the elite club in a filmed episode from the ThunderDome, as shown this week, featuring Taker's on-screen brother Kane. It's believed the issue is that Taker has not yet retired from wrestling.
He will be 70 years old in just over a month's time. It's possible he could continue wrestling until he is 75 or even 80 years old. Taker has stated many times that he wants to be remembered as one of the greatest wrestlers of all time. There are only a few other active wrestlers who have held the World Heavyweight Championship, including The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin, and Triple H. If Taker continues to wrestle for another year or two, it's possible he could join their ranks.
For now, we can only hope he does retire soon so he can rest up and spend more time with his family. He has four children and several grandchildren.
In conclusion, yes, the Undertaker will be in the WWE Hall of Fame someday.

There is practically no question that when the names for the 2020 WWE Hall of Fame induction class are announced, Batista will be one of the headliners. WWE tried to bring Batista back last year, but he refused since he was not yet retired and believed he had one more run in him. He has since retired from wrestling and the idea of having him return now seems very unlikely.
However, this doesn't mean Batista won't make it into the Hall of Fame eventually. He has been working as a producer for the WWE since late 2014 and has already earned his place among the company's greatest talent by simply being amazing at what he does. He has also been voted into several other exclusive clubs including the Legacy Club, which honors those who have spent the most time away from wrestling.
It's safe to say that there's no way around it anymore - Batista is one of the best wrestlers of all time. He's one of the few people who can claim to have held the World Heavyweight Championship, the European Championship, the Intercontinental Championship, and the United States Championship. There are only three others names on that list: The Rock, John Cena, and Hulk Hogan.
In addition to being one of the biggest stars in WWE history, Batista has also developed a reputation as one of the hardest workers in the business.
With WrestleMania 36 just around the corner, with WrestleMania comes the Hall of Fame ceremony, and with nWo and Batista revealed as the first 2020 inductees, isn't it time we looked at the prominent personalities that have been missing from the Hall of Fame and deserve recognition? Here are the five biggest snubs in WWE history.
John Cena is one of the most popular wrestlers of all time and has held the title of world champion three times. He's also a nine-time WWE Champion, making him one of the top titleholders in history. Yet, despite these achievements, he hasn't been voted into the WWE Hall of Fame by his fellow fans. The same can be said for Shawn Michaels, who is considered by many to be the greatest wrestler of all time. He's won six championships across two different promotions (WWWF and WCW), but still hasn't been voted in by his fellow fans.
The nWo (New World Order) was a stable consisting of Scott Hall, Kevin Nash, and David Flair that dominated professional wrestling in the early 1990s. They're regarded as some of the best wrestlers of all time and were dominant forces during their time together. However, none of them have been voted in by their fellow fans into the WWE Hall of Fame. Roddy Piper is another famous personality that hasn't been voted in by his fans.
The WWE Hall of Fame 2019 was the 20th induction ceremony for the WWE Hall of Fame... Hall Of Fame 2019.
