“That’s my proudest body of work in WWE”: The Undertaker discusses his favorite Wrestlemania match and what made it so special.
The WWE are celebrating 30 years of the Undertaker with them this month. The Deadman is the longest tenured wrestler in the company and is rightly being honored for his services to the promotion. He may have taken his first steps in the WWE at Survivor Series but will forever be remembered for the huge strides he took at Wrestlemania.
The Undertaker went 21 matches unbeaten at the show of shows and it seemed like the streak would go on forever. He would eventually lose to Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns before collecting a few more wins, including the much acclaimed ‘Boneyard Match’ earlier this year.
The Undertaker discusses his favorite Wrestlemania match
The Undertaker has had 27 matches at the Showcase of the immortals. He has won 25 of them and lost two. There have been a few duds in there such as his match against Giant Gonzalez. However, there have been much more classics and Taker knows exactly which one he enjoyed the most.
“When pressed for one particular match, it would have to be WrestleMania 25 against Shawn Michaels,” The Undertaker said in a fan Q&A with Sony India. “The match quality, the storyline, this is one of the greatest matches that I was part of. I think Shawn Michaels probably is the greatest in-ring wrestler of all time.
“This match here starts off a four-match series- the two with Shawn where I ended up retiring him next year, and then Triple H comes into the picture to take up from his friend. And it all ends up with Triple H, Shawn Michaels and myself at the top of the stage after 4 match series together. That was the end of an era and that’s my proudest body of work in WWE. Those four WrestleMania’s.”
