The Undertaker. In the wrestling world, that name means many different things to many different fans. No performer has ever dedicated them to their character the way Mark Callaway has to The Undertaker.

The Undertaker is a legend. He has seen the best and beat them. From Hulk Hogan to Steve Austin "The Deadman" has looked into the eyes of the best the WWE has ever seen and beat every single one of them.

The WWE is "his yard" and if you oppose him he will "make you famous."

The thing that sets The Undertaker apart from Hogan, Hart, Austin, and other "greats" is that The Undertaker was always good at adapting. He could alter his character when needed. Whether that change be a new move or a change in his persona.

'Taker has stood the test of time and considering that he was originally supposed to be a "ridiculous gimmick" that is impressive. 

He is a true corner stone of the WWE and was never seemed worried about title reigns. The Undertaker was always "there." He was there when Hogan and Bret Hart were at the top.

When Shawn Michaels and DX ran rabid and even when Austin and The Rock were at each other's neck. The Undertaker has forged a legacy for out lasting the competition.

For nearly 20 years, this man has enchanted the fans. Not only was he scary, but this guy is 6'0" and he was able to jump off the top ropes onto his opponents. That was unheard of back then.

The Undertaker was something completely different from everything else at the time. When he showed up in the early '90s there were a lot of silly gimmicks in wrestling and most of them only lasted for a short time, but one made it and of course the one who did was The Undertaker.

He is simply a character that is one of a kind.

He is notorious for his brutal matches. A fine example would be his Hell in  Cell Match with Shawn Michaels or Mankind. There will never be another performer like The Undertaker.

He has also had fantastic matches with Kurt Angle, Triple H, Ric Flair, Batista, and just about anyone who has ever stepped in the ring with him. The Undertaker knows the formula to make a match intense.

Most importantly, the thing that truly makes The Undertaker "The Greatest WWE Superstar Ever" is one simple thing. The Streak. Sixteen straight Wrestlemania matches.

The Undertaker has defeated ever single person he has stepped in the ring with at Wrestlemania from Jimmy Snuka to Edge no one has ever touched "The Phenom" at the biggest show of the year. The Streak is The Undertaker's ever lasting legacy and one of the most important parts of the history of Wrestlemania.

Your probably still scratching you head thinking what makes The Undertaker the greatest WWE Superstar ever? Is it his is undefeated Wrestlemania streak? Or his great matches?

Yes, all of that, but above all else it is his ability to capture the imagination of the fans. The Undertaker's whole career has been based around the fact that the fans interest in him never wearied.

The Undertaker is an individual like the wrestling world will never see again. He has stood the test of time and had some of the most brutal, physical, entertaining matches the WWE has ever seen and he is the greatest WWE superstar ever because of all that.

End of story.
