Undertaker's Wrestlemania opponents....
After looking over Taker's WM record, at least 50% of the people on that record are pure crap. (Note: I'm not trying to discredit The Undertaker or make him seem less important) When I look at it, I wonder why WWE wasted so many opportunites to put The Undertaker up against truely outstanding opponents?
Now, when you guys look at this upcoming list, I'm sure the #1 respons will be "But if he faced those guys, he probably would have lost." Well, maybe so. But lets assume for a second that WWE knew from the get-go that Taker would never lose at Wrestlemania... Had he faced these guys instead of those complete tools, his streak would mean so much more. (Also, in order to make sure any of these guys don't feel wronged because they were forced to job to Taker, they could have just been allowed to beat his ass at post-WM events)....
He should have fought these guys at Wrestlemania:
Hulk Hogan: Duh! What better than the power of Hulkamania itself going up against The Phenom at the biggest event possible. The hype alone for this match, especially at WM, would have been epic!
Stone Cold Steve Austin: It's a total clusterfuck that this match didn't happen at Mania. It could have easily happened at WM X8. Flair could have been moved to wrestle Scott Hall and Austin up to go against Taker. A Taker/Austin WM match would have been so freaking epic! Just imagine the fearless rattlesnake trying to beat The Deadman at his event! Taker/Austin > Taker/Flair. Come to think about it, WM X8 would have been so much more amazing had this match happened because then he would have had: Rock/Hogan AND Taker/Austin. Badass.
The Rock: Seriously, The Rock is one of the biggest stars ever, and back in the day he had a TON of heat as a heel. This match alone would have been well worth the price of admission. "Do you smell what The Rock is cooking? Ha! Well, The Rock is going to beat your ass at WM! Guaran-damn-teed!"
Ultimate Warrior: Ok, this guy was a total screwball and fuckup, but his character was such a ferocious beast. The potential epicness of this match, from a hype standpoint, is just too good to pass up.
Goldberg: The two biggest things to ever come out of wCw were the nWo and Goldberg. He himself was an absolute monster who crushed and raped everything in his path. Putting him up against The Deadman at Mania would have been spectacular! He would be, by far, the most dangerous threat to the epic streak (at least the wCw "173-0" version of his character would be). From a hype standpoint, their characters being matched up together would be beyond volatile.
Vince McMahon: What better than to see the boss himself try to end the streak.
DX: A tag match of HHH/HBK vs Taker/Kane would have been epic!
Brock Lesnar: What better than to see WWE's (legit) fastest rising star go up against Undertaker. Brock/Taker at WM19 would have been epic! (THey could have tweaked their other matches in order for the fued to actually end at WM)
nWo: Same as the DX match. What better than evil nWo trying to screw The Undertaker at WM.
John Cena: The face of the WWE (Current Era). Face it, he is the biggest star WWE currently has got!
That is just a list of who he could have faced. Face it, had he faced some of these guys at the big event, his record would be so much more freaking epic!
