One of the greatest matches of what 2K is calling the "Universe Era," this is the match that really established The Undertaker's WrestleMania undefeated streak as something that produced an amazing match each year. Sure, his previous three WrestleMania matches (vs. Batista, Edge, and Michaels) were all excellent, but the back to back incredible matches with Michaels elevated the streak to another level.
Going into the match, Michaels was obsessed with getting another shot at ending the streak. Undertaker held the World Heavyweight Championship at the beginning of the year, so Michaels entered the Royal Rumble to try to earn his shot, but was heartbroken when he was eliminated. Desperate, he sneaked into the Eliminator Chamber and cost Undertaker the title.
'Taker still wouldn't agree to the match, so Michaels offered up his career, and that was his ticket.
Whether this or the previous match (which isn't in the game) is better comes down to personal preference. The WrestleMania XXV match has more of the big near falls that have become signature moments in "Streak" matches, while this match has more of a traditional ongoing story with some big near falls near the end. This match also has the more memorable finish, with Michaels refusing to stay down, slapping 'Taker, and being spiked with a jumping Tombstone.
In many ways, this might be the best Undertaker WrestleMania match, and I'm glad it made the cut in WWE 2K14.
