The Undertaker has engendered a number of memorable feuds during his extremely long WWE career. The Digger has decided to hang up his boots at the Survivor Series 2020, not before receiving a beautiful tribute from friends and colleagues.
Within the docuseries, 'The Last Ride', the Deadman confided that he was no longer able to sustain the rhythms required by professional wrestling and therefore didn't think it was best to continue. Shortly before WrestleMania 38, the 'Phenom' was inducted with full merit into the WWE Hall of Fame by Vince Mcmahon himself.
Barring sensational and unlikely twists, his last match will remain the one against AJ Styles at Wrestlemania 36. Interviewed by Peter Rosenberg for 'A&E Biography: WWE Legends', Taker revealed which opponents he feels most attached to.
The Undertaker is a true icon
“Well, the story between Kane and The Undertaker was perhaps the most intriguing that has ever been told in wrestling. My rivalry with Kane is at the top of the list, because he has had so many facets within him ”- explained The Undertaker.
“I can't fail to mention my feud with Mick Foley, we have done a lot of innovative things together. Then I am reminded of the battles against Shawn Michaels and Triple H at WrestleMania. All these matches were connected to each other through a thin thread” - Taker added.
In the latest edition of 'The Bam Show', Kane revealed that it hasn't always been easy to work with the Deadman: “Taker and I were two sides of the same coin, I don't know if you know what I mean. It's like we're two versions of the same character, so it's not always easy to organize matches against him.
A giant like me was better off with smaller athletes, so there was a contrast of styles. I have always loved working with HBK, just to give an example. Those between me and Taker were battles between titans, but people got bored after a while." In a recent video on WWE's YouTube channel, The Undertaker revealed that Ole Anderson told him of WCW that no one would pay to see him: "I'd been with WCW now about eight or nine months, and it was time to start renegotiating my contract.
I was happy there. I liked being in WCW. So I got called in and Ole Anderson was there, who was booking territory at the time. They basically offered me the exact same deal that I'd just worked on. And I was like, 'Okay, I was hoping for just a little bit of a bump.'
Ole looks right at me and he goes, 'Mark, you're a great athlete, but no one's ever gonna pay money to watch you wrestle.' "
