For wrestling fans, there is no greater event than WrestleMania and no greater icon associated with the event than the legendary Undertaker. Now, one year after Taker’s farewell match against A.J. Styles at WrestleMania 36, WWE is including him in the annual event as a Non-Fungible Token.

The auctions are ongoing for all of WrestleMania weekend, finishing up on April 11th at 11:30pm. Hopefuls can bid on WWE.com/NFT, in conjunction with Bitski. The Man From Death Valley is featured in a of a four-tier drop illustrating some of the most iconic moments from his career.
Some of the moments include Taker’s epic encounter with Mick “Mankind” Foley from the King of the Ring 1998, where the Dead Man launched Foley from the top of the caged cell, down through the announce table below. Another, going for less shows his unforgettable entrance that included lights, smoke, and “creatures of the night” reaching up from the ground.
Mark “Undertaker” Calaway has forever been linked to the annual WWE event due to his unbelievable winning streak. Mark checked in with a seemingly impossible 21-0 record for over two decades. Those who might look down on the accomplishment due to wrestling’s predetermined outcomes need to view the achievement through the proper lens. Winning a match in wrestling is more than a sports victory, it’s a testament to a performer’s star power and ability. He or she needs to convince those making the decisions that they are worthy of being featured and presented as stars. After twenty years, the chance of that happening for most performers is slim to none. But for Mark, it was another day at the office.

This year’s WrestleMania is the second in a row with two nights taking over the festivities. Last year’s COVID-affected event saw wrestlers take part in matches both at the empty WWE Performance Center in Orlando and on-location in cinematic bouts. It was there that Undertaker faced Styles in a Boneyard Match. The decision to have the match and the stress that finding the right opponent for his final competition was even the subject of a WWE documentary about Calaway last year.
This year’s Mania features the in-ring debut of Grammy-winning artist Bad Bunny and an appearance by Logan Paul. Some of the key matches will be Roman Reigns defending his Universal Championship against Daniel Bryan and Edge. Bobby Lashley puts his WWE Title against former champion Drew McIntyre. Also, Sasha Banks tried to keep her Women’s Gold against rising star Bianca Belair.
Taking place at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay, Florida, this two night event will be WWE’s return to form as, for the first time in over a year, fans will pack the stadium to witness history.
