The Undertaker’s WrestleMania Streak Tag

For Whom the Bell Tolls – Act XII It all begins again was the moniker of Wrestlemania XX in Madison Square Garden. The feud between Kane and The Undertaker had resurfaced after Kane buried his brother alive at Survivor Series 2003. The Undertaker was in an intense feud with Vince McMahon before Kane intervened. Kane laughed over the grave of The Undertaker as he claimed that despite the common bond the two men shared, The Undertaker had changed into just another one of the people. He had become like themRead More
For Whom the Bell Tolls – Act XI Hey, so I’ve been dreading this one. I don’t like the match, I think it’s boring and I’m not into the story. So let’s just get that out of the way right now. When you think of The Streak, do you think about the killer match Taker had with Big Show and Lord A-Train? Nothing against Big Show, or Taker, or the other one, I know I don’t think good things when I think of this match, but I am still goingRead More
For Whom the Bell Tolls – Act IX You know what I noticed in this column? It is quite strange that we go from Streak match to Streak match because a lot changes in a year of wrestling. Our latest couple of matches have been a war against Kane and then the next day, we are talking about the extreme version of The Deadman who is crucifying people on Raw and hanging The Big Bossman from the Hell in a Cell at Wrestlemania. Unfortunately, The Phenom wouldn’t compete at WrestlemaniaRead More

For Whom the Bell Tolls – Act VIII A year after brother vs. brother, The Undertaker had moved on to recoil with Paul Bearer. The Undertaker was buried alive by Stone Cold Steve Austin and upon his return, he created a faction of darkness known as The Ministry. The Ministry had tormented the McMahon family for weeks on end, until their attention was turned directly to The Big Bossman because of his involvement and protection of the McMahons. The character of The Undertaker had changed drastically and mind games wereRead More
For Whom the Bell Tolls – Act VII I’ve been really excited for this match. I began watching wrestling somewhere in between Wrestlemania XIII and XIV. This was my first Wrestlemania and my first Streak match that I saw in real time. I was eight years old when I saw this war between brothers. What was great about Kane is that the character walked in and was immediately over because he was sold as the brother of The Undertaker. The Deadman was an established veteran at this point in hisRead More

For Whom the Bell Tolls – Act VI The Streak continues in Rosemont, Illinois as The Undertaker tries for victory number six and for the WWF World Heavyweight Championship. On this night in the Rosemont Horizon Arena, The Deadman squares off against Sid Vicious at Wrestlemania 13. The feud would begin at In Your House, the intertwined feuds of Stone Cold and Bret Hart combined with Psycho Sid and The Undertaker started with a Four Corners elimination match that Hart would win. Due to various opportunities and interference in matchesRead More

For Whom the Bell Tolls – Act V At Arrowhead Pond in Anaheim, California, The Undertaker would defend The Streak against Big Daddy Cool, Diesel at Wrestlemania XII. The Undertaker’s quest for victory number five wouldn’t be much of anything new in the opponent. The former WWF Champion Diesel had retained the title and defeated Shawn Michaels the year prior. While this year, Shawn Michaels would achieve the boyhood dream, The Undertaker took on Diesel. The seven foot monster had been the victim of classic Undertaker mind games in theRead More
For Whom the Bell Tolls – Act IV The Undertaker would not compete at Wrestlemania X due to injuries. Despite his absence, a certain someone would steal the show. I’ll name names and get into detail about that in another column, but without The Undertaker, someone needed to make sure Wrestlemania stayed afloat. A year later, Wrestlemania XI would hold sixteen thousand strong in the Hartford Civic Center in Connecticut to watch The Deadman return to his undefeated burial ground to toll the bell for King Kong Bundy. Their matchRead More
For Whom the Bell Tolls – Act III Today, we cover the only match to date The Undertaker has not won by pinfall, or submission. The great CM Punk once said to The Undertaker with flying urn in hand that when it comes to The Streak, if you are counted out or disqualified, it is still a loss. At Wrestlemania IX, The Undertaker would benefit from that idea and win for a third consecutive Wrestlemania by DQ against Giant Gonzalez. Today, The Undertaker faces Giant Gonzalez. The man who wasRead More
For Whom the Bell Tolls – Act II We continue as the bell tolls for 2014 Hall of Fame Inductee, Jake “The Snake” Roberts at Wrestlemania VIII. I had previously shown my distaste for the Snuka match a year before, but accepted it as putting The Undertaker over and giving The Streak life. It is amazing what difference a year makes because The Undertaker was on the turn of becoming face in his battle against The Snake. Roberts had gotten massively over as a heel for his torment of theRead More
For Whom the Bell Tolls – Act I “For Whom the Bell Tolls” is how it all began. The bell of The Undertaker echoes through the Wrestlemania arena as Paul Bearer carries the urn in hand on his way to the ring as he is followed by The Undertaker. Little did we know, this would be the first of many. In the ring was Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka, who also didn’t know the ass whooping The Undertaker was about to lay him to rest with. Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka became number 1Read More
This year in the lead up to Wrestlemania XXX, I will personally be going back through The Streak of The Undertaker. We are going to go through all 21 victories one match per day which will climax with the quest for Brock Lesnar to become number 22. Try to think of this as a 21 Days of Wrestlemania Marathon. The Streak begins today March 16th as we start at the beginning against Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka at Wrestlemania VII for the first victory. I’m excited because we get to go backRead More
