The Undertaker’s gimmick is one of the greatest of all time. No one doesn’t know Taker or even his iconic bell.

Beyoncé also seems to have taken inspiration from The Deadman for her Formation world tour looks. In one of her tour looks, she wore an enormous hat with smoke around her, which almost looked like a homage to Taker.

Dsquared2 designed this look, and the source of inspiration for this outfit is unknown. But we can take a guess or two about that.
