Default Undertaker hanging Big Bossman?

Holy shit that was crazy. what was the reaction to it at the time? Were people offended over it? How did the WWF explain Big Bossman coming back alive. Could something like that ever happen in the modern day WWE?

It was shocking in the sense that it came from nowhere, didnt serve any real purpose even when the Ministry and the Corporation were feuding.

Whats most odd is I dont think this even got replayed or mentioned after WM15.

i just remember Bossman returning bot long after and doing the whole 'Pepper' angle with Al Snow

Boss Man returned two weeks later as he and the Corporate team were not allowed to save Stephanie who was really Ryan Shamrock.Shane told Boss Man,Remember what happened to your neck?

I was shocked when I saw it the first time ever. I couldn't believe that his was happening and that made me fear the Undertaker even more when I was a kid.

I was more shocked that the Big Boss Man actually got to fight Taker at Mania and that they couldn't find a more credible opponent. I really dont' think anyone took the match seriously and the "hanging" did nothing but try to help make the match look bigger than it was, of course it did not work.

Stupid decision.

The crowd no sold it and it was really dumb to do at the end of the match.

It was a stupid move IMO. I get they wanted to portray the Undertaker as evil and all but that was a bit to much.

Best part about it was seeing the Brood come down from the rafters, and hearing the Ministry theme play throughout the entire segment.

Who would be a more credible opponent? Boss Man was solid in the late 90's. He wasn't the biggest star in the world, but he was credible enough to face Taker at the time.

Hmm... to be fair there really weren't any interesting challengers for Taker I suppose, but Boss Man really had no momentum. I'm trying to jog my memory here, but the only real angle I remember him being in was the one where he stole the Big Show's dad's coffin lol, and that ended with Big Show getting the clean pin fall, and beyond that he was Austin's whipping boy from time to time. Plus didn't this match pretty much have a heel vs heel dynamic? It's tough to generate sympathy for someone getting hanged when the fans hate the guy in the first place.

I think something like Taker vs the Big Show would've been more interesting... then again that had a heel vs heel dynamic too.
