WWE Enters the NFT Market
Mark Calaway, better known under his ring name The Undertaker, is one of the most iconic professional wrestlers of all time. As such, he holds the record for the longest active career within the world’s largest wrestling promotion. During his 30-year career, he performed in 27 matches at the WWE’s annual flagship event WrestleMania, out of which he won 25.
After The Undertaker had officially retired in June 2020, the WWE has now auctioned a series of NFTs featuring the Wrestling legend, fitting to the occasion of WrestleMania 37, which was held on the past weekend in Tampa, Florida.
