Re: Official Undertaker WM Streak Thread - No Other Threads
My top entrances would have to be:
1 - Summerslam 1994
2 - WM 20 2004
3 - Summerslam 1992
The Summerslam 1994 entrance is just amazingly shot and portrayed the version of his gimmick that I like the most. The lighting and his silhouette, the way he slowly walked like a zombie, and not to mention Paul Bearer's part in it all. The lighting effect with the urn, as if we get to see the power behind the Undertaker, and Bearer's acting was all just so cinematic and theatrical. It's too bad that new supernatural characters aren't really accepted in this day and age anymore.
Taker's WM 20 entrance will always be special not just because of the return of the Deadman, but I was afraid I would never get to see that character again because I started watching when Taker was the American Badass. I was totally fine with the idea of a badass biker character, but when I did research and realized the character that the Undertaker used to be I was so upset that I had started so late in the game. I'm just glad that I was able to watch it happen when it happened on tv.
Even though Taker was merely riding behind a hearse, the way he stood perfectly still was haunting enough in itself. Not to mention (in general) when the cameras would catch the few fans who showed up cosplaying as him as if they were in a trance or channeling him. No one in the world could have portrayed and perfected this character like Calaway has.
