Vince McMahon to induct The Undertaker into WWE Hall of Fame

The ceremony is taking place on Friday, April 1.

Vince McMahon will be playing a key part in this year's WWE Hall of Fame ceremony.

During his appearance on the Pat McAfee Show on Thursday, McMahon revealed that he'll be the person to induct The Undertaker into the WWE Hall of Fame. The induction ceremony will air live on Peacock/WWE Network on Friday, April 1. It's taking place at the American Airlines Center in Dallas after the WrestleMania 38 go-home episode of SmackDown.

"Undertaker, of course, is going to be in the Hall of Fame -- and I'm going to have the distinction of inducting into the Hall of Fame," McMahon told McAfee.

McMahon said that inducting The Undertaker will be one of the most difficult things he's ever done in his life. When asked why, McMahon said he loves The Undertaker and got emotional when talking about the relationship they've had over the years. McMahon said Undertaker (real name Mark Calaway) is an extraordinary human being and is someone who has been loyal, trustworthy, and reliable.

McMahon also inducted "Stone Cold" Steve Austin into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2009.

The Undertaker is the first inductee to be confirmed for this year's Hall of Fame class.
