The Undertaker Vs Mankind - Survivor Series 1996
Referred to as the "forgotten match" from their series, and for good reason because even I forgot they wrestled at this event!
Paul Bearer is stick inside a cage, and if Undertaker wins he gets Paul or something. I think that's how it goes anyway.
Mankind really has had Undertaker's number since debuting earlier in the year, and its caused Undertaker to evolve and adapt. We see it a lot here as he pulls out some "TECHNICALS" moves in order to perhaps throw Mankind off his game by doing something he wouldn't expect. We also see Undertaker take a page out of HBK's book by targeting the hand, hoping to disable the Mandible Claw!
Undertaker must have run out of black hair dye around this time because he's completely GINGER lol.
Nice back and forth brawling between the two. Undertaker even BITES the hand of Mankind to make sure the Mandible Claw can't be used! Then Mankind catches Undertaker in a pretty fucking sweet Piledriver.
Foley is fucking insane with some of the "small" bumps he takes, where he takes basic bumps and somehow makes them worse by splattering on the floor more than anyone else would, or by smashing his head on something lol.
Even Undertaker bumps a little more than usual, and its great to hear Paul Bearer screaming in pure joy when Undertaker gets hurt lol.
The hand of Mankind seems to be damaged from Undertaker targeting it, so Mankind resorts to using a weapon in his hand instead, which the referee seems completely oblivious to
TOMBSTONE OUT OF NOWHERE! Undertaker gets the win, and as a result he gets Paul Bearer until TERRY GORDY shows up to make the save. Undertaker gets a win over Mankind, but doesn't get the revenge he wants.
Good match. Not their best PPV outing, in fact based on the quality of most of their matches its probably the second worst PPV match they had, but its not bad at all and so far above the horrible Boiler Room Brawl match
