One of The Undertaker's first defining victories came at WWF Survivor Series 1991, when he defeated the face of the Golden Era, Hulk Hogan, to win his first WWF Championship.

Hulk Hogan on The Undertaker's career

Hulk Hogan wrote, "Amazing career The Undertaker has had, 30yrs of Main Events and always was nothing but money, I will never forget Taker on the set of Suburban Commando, I told him Vince needs to meet you,30 awesome years brother HH."

Taker beat Hogan for the world title at WWF Survivor Series 1991, but dropped it just days later. "When I tell you I had the brother secure, he was secure," Taker said. "I give him the Tombstone, and as soon as my knees hit I hear 'Oh, you got me, brother.'

I'm like how in the world, I just crushed Hulk Hogan that's what's going through my head. They gave me the chance to run with the ball and I just hurt the golden goose. A lot of the boys came up to me and shook their head and said 'His head didn't get anywhere close to the mat,' then I watched it back and you can tell his head never touched.

Now I'm in this precarious situation, I'm still green and now I have to confront the biggest face in wrestling ever and figure out what I'm going to do here. It's risking my professional career. I said to him in San Antonio 'Terry, I watched it back and your head never hit?'" Taker said.

"[Hogan] says 'Well brother, what it was is you had me so tight that when I came down, I had nowhere to move so that's what jammed my neck cause I couldn't move at all.' At that point, I now know what you're all about and that's all I needed."
