I’ve seen a lot of wrestlers come and go throughout the years but The Undertaker has been the constant. I didn’t watch him debut at Survivor Series, I first saw him on an episode of WWF Superstars or Wrestling Challenge, he beat some job guy and placed him in a body bag.
Through the years I always hoped WWE would release a documentary DVD set on the Undertaker but all we ever got was match compilations or he would pop up now and again for a talking heads interview giving his opinion on something historic in the wrestling business. But all that has changed, sure the year 2020 has been rough but a lot of good has come out of it, like all the documentaries, podcast interviews, or sit downs with Mark Calaway, the man who plays the Undertaker character. I been loving everything that WWE has put out on the Network. The Last Ride series shined so much light on Taker’s Mania matches.
Instead of me rambling on I’m just gonna hit you with the highlights. Favorite matches, moments etc…
If I had to pick three of my favorite Undertaker matches, these are them.
Undertaker-Mankind Boiler Room Brawl (SummerSlam 1996)
Undertaker-Kane (WrestleMania 14)
Undertaker-HBK (WrestleMania 25)
The Undertaker has had so many looks over the years. I always loved the Phantom Taker with the mask or the Ministry of Darkness look. As for a outfit I could do without, his American Badass getup was terrible. I think when he turned into Big Evil is when he found that character.
