(Please note: this is a brief history of The Undertaker, so if I miss out on these little bits and pieces, don't get mad)
Let me get straight to the point, now some of you may think that my title is a bit controversial, but let's face it The Phenom, The Undertaker has been in this business for the past 26 years.
He debuted in 1984 under the name as Texas Red (during the time of WCCW a.k.a World Class Championship Wrestling), then ultimately progressed to The Undertaker.
He made his official WWF/E debut on Nov. 19, 1990, at a taping of WWF Superstars. From then on he went on to quickly cement his name into the WWE, by feuding with some of the all-time greats in the business like The Ultimate Warrior, Mankind, Kane, Vader and many more.
Also just to note he had his first Wrestlemania win against "Superfly" Jimmy Snuka as well.
From then on, The Undertaker went on to things like forming The Brothers of Destruction with his kayfabe brother Kane, forming the Ministry of Darkness, winning more and more Wrestlemania's.
Now recently, he has defeated the all-time legend, The Showstopper, Mr. Wrestlemania himself Shawn Michaels at this year's Wrestlemania and who could forget the monumental match at last year's Wrestlemania.
I remember when The Undertaker performed his signature dive outside of the ring; and in an attempt to counter the move, Shawn Michaels moved the camera guy in front of him. (The way The Undertaker landed must've been painful).
I just wonder how he can put his work before his health. We all know he is dedicated to his work as much as the likes of John Cena.
But his body is getting weaker (you know you can see him limping inside of the ring, slow movement, etc) and even though he might be the best pure striker in the WWE, I just wonder when is he going to retire? (hopefully not too soon but soon if you know what I mean)
When is his last Wrestlemania? Who will he be against? (John Cena, as many rumors point to be the case. But in order for that to happen, Cena has to turn heel).
So to leave in a positive note, The Undertaker has cemented his place in the WWE, he is already a Hall of Famer, he has the power to make us fearful of him every time we see him, he is the ultimate force to be reckoned with. He is The Undertaker.
Hope you all enjoyed reading this as much as I have enjoyed typing it. Leave your notes and comments, positive/negative, let me know how you feel.
Peace all, (Long live The Deadman, The Undertaker)
