The Undertaker has had one of the longest, most successful, and iconic careers in the WWE. His gimmick is one of the strongest that ever graced the squared circle. And while we saw him wrestle under various gimmicks that include:
The dark theme of his gimmick has never changed, and neither has his skill in the ring. His trademark entrances are almost unrivalled in the WWE. His gimmick is truly one of the best the WWE has ever seen.
The Undertaker also has one of the most interesting arsenal of weapons and props, from caskets to nooses. Here are 12 of his most iconic acts during his career.
1/ The Undertaker did not win a 'Royal Rumble' match until 2007, which is shocking in and of itself. This doesn't mean that his appearances at 'Royal Rumble' were lackluster though. In 2006, the year before he went on to win 'Royal Rumble', he made a very exciting appearance. Kurt Angle had just won against Mark Henry for the WWE Championship. The Deadman was not having any of that, and while Angle was celebrating he came out on his black chariot and then proceeded to BREAK the ring by shooting four lightning bolts into it, showing his desire to take the Championship from Angle. The ring collapsed out from under Kurt and the message was loud and clear.
2/ Armageddon 2000 saw The Undertaker in a six-way Hell in a Cell match for the WWE Championship. As he does, he elevated the match by getting extreme. For this match, there was a truck that was parked ringside. While The Deadman was wrestling Rikishi at the top of the Cell, and Rikishi got closer and closer to the edge, the Taker took the opportunity to throw him off of the cell and slam him into the truck.
3/ In Your House PPV in 1996, Diesel and Bret Hart were wrestling in a steel cage for the-- you guessed it--WWE Championship. Things were coming to an end and everything pointed to Diesel winning the title. Then in one of the wildest moves ever, a hand broke out from the canvas in the ring and The Undertaker grabbed Diesel by his legs and dragged him down ‘straight into hell’ (with, of course, The Undertaker's signature smoke coming out from the hole). Hart kept his title, and ‘Taker and Diesel met in the ring the following month at 'WrestleMania'.
4/ Muhammad Hassan was one of the WWE’s less politically correct wrestlers. The gimmick ended up causing too much controversy for the company so they knew they had to take him out, and they did it using The Undertaker. What better event to take Hassan out than at The Great American Bash 2005. They were in a match together and The Undertaker went ham on him, he finished the match off by delivering The Last Ride to Hassan right onto the floor below them.
