WWE has confirmed that The Undertaker has joined Cameo as part of his 30th anniversary and Final Farewell at Survivor Series this Sunday.
The messages from The Deadman will cost an eye-watering $1,000 – or £830 – with only 30 being made available, and WWE confirming that they’ll be filmed at Survivor Series – Undertaker’s final WWE appearance.
“WWE Legend Undertaker has joined Cameo in celebration of his 30th anniversary and Final Farewell at Survivor Series this Sunday, November 22, capping off The Phenom’s legendary 30-year career. Beginning today,Undertaker is available for 30 limited edition personalized video messages which he will fulfill at Survivor Series.

The move comes in the fallout of criticisms of the company whereby all WWE Superstars were instructed to sever ties with third-party platforms – one of which being Cameo – with reports suggesting WWE would be striking a deal with those companies where they would take a portion of the earnings in exchange for management of the accounts and allowing talents to use their WWE monikers when taking bookings.
WWE previously released the following statement regarding the ban on third-party affiliations.
“Much like Disney and Warner Bros., WWE creates, promotes and invests in its intellectual property, i.e. the stage names of performers like The Fiend Bray Wyatt, Roman Reigns, Big E and Braun Strowman. It is the control and exploitation of these characters that allows WWE to drive revenue, which in turn enables the company to compensate performers at the highest levels in the sports entertainment industry. Notwithstanding the contractual language, it is imperative for the success of our company to protect our greatest assets and establish partnerships with third parties on a companywide basis, rather than at the individual level, which as a result will provide more value for all involved.”
The Undertaker Cameo account, though, would seemingly be a working collaboration with WWE, with the company promoting the link and posting about it on WWE.com.
