The Undertaker Still Kicking Ass!

The Undertaker began his wrestling career with World Class Championship Wrestling in 1984. He joined World Championship Wrestling (WCW) in 1989. When WCW did not renew The Undertaker contract in 1990, in November of that year he joined the World Wrestling Federation (WWF, which later became the WWE in 2002). Having remained with that company ever since, The Undertaker is currently one of the senior performers in WWE. He is one of only two wrestlers, the other being Shawn Michaels, to have appeared on the very first episode of Raw who are still with the company today.

The Undertaker is also the creator of several specialty matches, those being; The Casket match, The Boiler Room Brawl match, The Buried Alive match, the Hell in a Cell match and the Inferno Match in which the entire ring is surrounded in fire.

Undertaker is undefeated at WrestleMania with a 16-0 record (referred to as simply The Streak) and is a six-time world champion (four-time WWE Champion and two-time World Heavyweight Champion). Many say Undertaker’s winning WrestleMania streak will end at WrestleMania XXV (25). I say and I am sure all Taker fans will agree that The Streak should never end. If the WWE decides to end the Undertaker’s streak at mania it would certainly put the nail in the coffin of Undertaker’s character and no wrestling fan would Rest In Peace!
