Top 11 - Undertaker WrestleMania Matches
So basically i've decided top 11 lists will become my new "thing," don't know why, just seems right.
Anyway this is a list of the top 11 (of 17) matches The Undertaker has had at WrestleMania if you want to leave a comment of yor top 11 (or 10 if you want to be normal).
I hope you enjoy reading this as it took one heck of a while watching threw all the matches he's had (not that they were bad).....(most weren't bad at least).......(yeah I'm talking to you, A-Train)
11 - Big Boss Man
Undertaker 8 - 0
Hell In A Cell
This match was infamous for its shocking ending. First off, is this the only Hell in a Cell match at mania? Can't think of any others.
The match was similar to many of Undertaker's early matches, near enough a squash match.
After a few minutes Undertaker had won the match, but it wasn't over. One of the most controversial moments in pro wrestling occurred and BossMan was seemingly hung from the Cell which was then raised as seen in the photo.
I personally think WWE/F took it a bit far with this angle at the end of the match but suppose it was entertaining.
10 - Diesel
Undertaker 5 - 0
First of, the picture, I couldn't find a picture of Diesel/Taker match, I challenge you to find one and leave a link of it, thank you.
At 12, it was Undertaker against Diesel, these two both looked in some fit shape, if you don't mind me saying, and made the ref look more weak than they normally do.
Two powerhouses collided in this battle of strength, was a good match although a bit slow paced.
9 - Ric Flair
Undertaker 10 - 0
The build up for this match was personal, with Undertaker taking out Flair's family. He pretty much dominated the match except from a couple of quick counters into a figure-four leg lock.
Flair was bloody for most of the match and even an interference from Arn Anderson couldn't stop Undertaker getting his 10th WrestleMania win.
8 - Kane II
Undertaker 12 - 0
This was the long and eagerly awaited return of the deadman. After weeks of playing mind games with his brother it was finally time for these two to start the fight.
I don't think the outcome of the match was in doubt in anyones mind, and few thought the match would be high quality but the entrance a crowd reaction made up for it.
7 - Sycho Sid
Undertaker 6 - 0
The match kicked off with new heel Bret Hart coming to the ring only to be powerbombed by Sid, which got the loudest cheer of the night, despite him being the bad guy. With Shawn Michaels helping on commentary, there wasn't a dull moment.
They went back a forward before Sid started to take control of the match. The Hitman reappeared with a chair which he smashed against the head of Sid before being restrained.
Even though Sid recovered and powerbombed Taker, Bret distracted the ref allowing Deadman to apply to Tombstone.
Probably the closest Undertaker was at a WrestleMania match to losing.
6 - Batista
Undertaker 15 - 0
Nobody had expected this match to be as good as it was. Not even the bookers who put it as a mid card match despite Undertaker winning the Rumble match.
Both men did their finishers on each other but still kicked out, until Taker hit the Tombstone and got the pin.
5 - Kane I
Undertaker 7 - 0
Nobody knew what to expect when these two brothers with a strong rivalry crossed horns for the first time. Every WWF/E fan wanted to know who was the better man/ monster.
Kane had Paul Bearer on his side and that was the main difference during the match as he would distract the referee to Kane's advantage. Undertaker went on to win the match but it wasn't over.
Kane attacked Taker with a chair leaving the Deadman lying in the ring until he sat up.
This continued their feud for future months.
4 - Edge
Undertaker 16 - 0
Another overachieving match inwhich both wrestlers began at a slow pace with many counters.
During the match as the ref was down, Edge hit Undertaker with a camera and then for a tombstone (that's right, Edge went for it) although it was countered and Taker did it instead.
Curt Hawkins and Zack Ryder came to help Edge but didn't "help" that much at all really. Saying that, Edge then hit a spear but Undertaker kicked out.
He went for another one but it was countered into Undertaker's gogoplata submission.
3 - Randy Orton
Undertaker 13 - 0
Another match that beat expectation. Randy Orton hadn't really been in any classic matches (apart from the hardcore ones) as of yet and looked out of his depth against the Phenom.
Some people believe this is one of the greatest matches of all time. There were many close 2 counts but it was Undertaker who extended his streak to 13, even fighting off Randy's dad Bob Orton.
2 - Triple H
Undertaker 9 - 0
I've already done a write up on this and that wasn't too bad. In fact, I've got the link here. It was a brilliant article please have a read, right click, open new tab, http://bleacherreport.com/articles/181707-top-10-wrestlemania-matches-of-the-21st-century (cheap plug there).....
The match was thought throughout the stands and outside the ring as the ref was knocked down early, which made it practically a no holds barred match.
Undertaker was in his hometown (Houston, not Death Valley) and had a huge home advantage and managed to secure the win, great match, quite a weak ending.
1 - Jimmy Snuka
Undertaker 1 - 0
JOKING! Couldn't help myself. Lets be honest, this match was lame, especially for Mania standards.
The real number 1......
1 - Shawn Michaels
WrestleMania 25th Anniversary
Undertaker 17 - 0
I'm not even going to describe how good this match was. It wasn't too quick, nor too slow, the perfect two wrestlers putting it all on the line for our entertainment getting the crowd involved and providing in my opinion the greatest match of all time.
Thank you for reading and once again proving
