Universally regarded as one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time, Mark William Calaway aka The Undertaker turns 56 years old on 24th March 2021. The Deadman of the ruthless Attitude Era has given fans some of the greatest moments in WWE history.
From his terrifying persona to being labeled as a man who is already dead and the one who collects souls, The Undertaker was always right in the mind of his rival whenever he stepped inside the ring. A 7-time champion in-ring gave fans a teary-eyed farewell but the phenom legacy still lives on,
So here are the Greatest and Best moments by The Undertaker in WWE
Undertaker vs Shawn Michaels
Described as the ‘Streak Vs. Career’ match, the two heavyweights clashed in one of the best matches of the decade in WrestleMania 26.
The rage and the emotions shown by The Undertaker in this match were literally surreal for any fan. In the finishing moments of the match, Michaels crawled up and mocked Taker with the ‘Rest In Peace’ gesture. Then, he slapped The Phenom. Blind rage ensued and moments later, Shawn Michaels’ career was over, after a hellacious Tombstone.
Hell in the Cell
During 2010 Kane was busy with the Apex Predator on Smackdown night. He was ready to finish the match but the arena went dark. When the lights were back on, it was Randy Orton waiting to RKO the Kane.
But to everyone’s surprise, lights went out again, but this time there was a purple light inside the ring. The Undertaker ripped a part of the mat to expose himself and pulled at his ‘brother’s’ legs. A scared and screaming Kane tried throwing a fight but failed. Taker managed to do one final pull and dragged the Monster straight to hell.
The Broken Streak
Not the moment which Undertaker fans wanna remember in their lifetime, the infamous WrestleMania 30. Brock Lesnar was ready to take on the Undertaker in his backyard.
The highlight of the match, however, were those brief moments when Undertaker sat up straight, and Brock laughed at his face.
The Deadman sitting up has sent many a legend scurrying. The Beast was unfazed as he laughed. Undertaker grimaced back, and the two were again back at exchanging blows.
In the end, Lesnar was able to best out The Undertaker who was then way past his prime.
End of an Era
WrestleMania 28 which was a Hell In A Cell match is legendary for many reasons. This match featured three wrestlers of the past era locked in a cell of steel.
Shawn Michaels was the special guest referee to the match where Triple H and The Undertaker locked their horns in the ring.
As the match proceeded Triple H destroyed The Undertaker, but he did not give up. Shawn Michales pleaded with Taker to finish the match, but the Minister of Darkness did not give up.
Taker revived the last bit of supernatural strength that he possessed inside him and it was Game over for Triple H. With that match that day, the glorious Attitude Era had ended.
