Hello everyone. As always, I would like to thank all of you for spending some time with me today.
As everyone already knows the Undertaker is officially back in action. While this is indeed exciting news for all the WWE fans. Im also pretty sure the WWE is happy considering the ratings that Taker draws in.
I have been a fan of the Undertaker for years now. Unlike most on here I saw his debut live, it was spectacle to say the least. Over the years Taker has given us his heart, blood and soul.
I remember watching the Undertaker pinning Hogan for the title. I also remember him losing it a few days later, when he and Hogan had their rematch. Needles to say it was the best and worst week for me that year.
The Undertaker has been a staple for the WWE for almost two decades now. He has wrestled, lost and also beat the best in the business. The one thing that could be said for the Undertaker is, he has always done what's best for business.
The undertaker has put over some real bums during his career. I know it can be said that he has one more than he has lost. Looking back at things though, I think its safe to say he has put over a lot of people.
I know Taker was never the best in ring worker. I also know that a lot of people find his deadman gimmick hokey. I personally prefer his biker gimmick over his current clownish gimmick.
Whether he wrestled as the deadman or the bad ass, there is one thing that can always be said about him. When it was Showtime the Undertaker always brought his A game.
I don't think I have ever seen the Undertaker dog out a match. He has always given above and beyond when asked to. His match at Wrestlemania 25 proved that. He has wrestled more profile matches than anyone in the WWE today.
HBK may be mr. Wrestlemainia, but the undertaker is the WWE. When all the other stars bailed at the sight of dollar signs. The Undertaker stayed true to the man who made him famous.
It can also be argued that if not for the Undertaker, the WWE in the 90s would have been a total disaster. I remember one of my favorite feuds ever was when the Undertaker and Bret Hart went at it.
Both wrestlers were my favorite and I didn't know who the hell to root for.
My fondest memories of the dead man though were when he wrestled as the American bad ass. It was probably the last time that the Undertaker was truly dominant in the ring.
His feuds with HHH at the time were nothing short of classic. That was also when we got to see one of my favorite tag teams ever, the brothers of destruction. It was fun watching those two destroy the tag division.
These days the Undertaker is a part time wrestler. He is called upon by Vince when needed on special occasions. Still even though he wrestles a light schedule he does deliver the goods.
Im sure once he is done with CM Punk, it is Punk that will benefit most from the feud. I would also love to see a good Jericho Vs. taker feud. I think those two could put on a stellar showing.
It is no secret though that the Taker plans on hanging up his boots soon. It will be a sad day for the wrestling world once he does. He will leave a gapping whole for the WWE to fill.
Until then all we can do is enjoy the time left we have with him. Im sure he will continue to please the fans for as long as he can. For the record I hope is Wrestlemania streak is never broken.
On a final note, I often hear names like HBK and Bret Hart thrown around when people talk about the best in the history of the WWE. I think it is about time we start throwing the Undertakers name in that mix.
I would like to thank all of you again for joining me today.
As always, have a great day and god bless
