I was 6 years old when The Undertaker made his WWE debut at the 1990 Survivor Series and he is still wrestling today 25 years later. "Awesome" is the only word Gorilla Monsoon could think of to describe the him when hewas the Mystery partner on Ted Dibiase's Million Dollar Team. Undertaker quickly eliminated Koko B Ware and Dusty Rhodes before being counted out himself.
Who could have guessed the success the Undertaker would have for the past 25 years and what can you say about the Deadman that hasn't already been said? The Phenom's entrance alone is worth the price of admission to any live event, once the Gong Hits you are in for a treat.
A year after his Survivor Series debut the Undertaker beat Hulk Hogan for his 1st of 4 WWE World Heavyweight Championships and the Deadman is a 6 time World Tag Team Champion
partnering with Stone Cold Steve Austin (1) Big Show (2) The Rock (1) and Kane (2).
The Undertaker is so fascinating to me because over the 25 years he continues to reinvent himself and stay relevant & exciting but sticking to his core character which the fans have grown to love over time. He was a Mortician under Paul Bearer, the Phenom in the Ministry of Darkness, the American Badass on a motorcycle to a Deadman and now an Outlaw with short hair. He is described as the hardest worker in the dressing room and so well respected in the industry.
He was the first wrestler ever to compete in the Hell in a Cell match with HBK Shawn Michaels, he is known for his Buried Alive matches, his signature move the Tombstone Pile Driver and the Choke slam sending his opponents straight to hell. "The Streak" started at Wrestlemania 7 winning 21 straight Wrestlemania appearances until Brock Lesnar broke the streak at Wrestlemania 30 shocking the entire world.
Already in 2015 The Undertaker has wrestled three times not including the Mexico tour three tag matches with Kane facing two of the Wyatt Members. The previous years starting in 2011 The Undertaker has primarily wrestled and appeared at Wrestlemania annually but it appears he is on a "Phenom Tour" nearing his retirement this Wrestlemania or next.
Here's to hoping for an Undertaker vs. Sting at Wrestlemania 32
plus a well deserved induction into the 2016 Hall of Fame.
Thank you Deadman for all the Tombstones. Rest In Peace.
The Deadman is no Stranger to Gold.
