WWE Hall of Famer The Undertaker has given his thoughts on what the greatest story ever told in professional wrestling is.
In a thirty-year WWE career like no other, The Undertaker has had his fair share of classic matches and rivalries. Talking to Peter Rosenberg for A&E Biography: WWE Legends, The Deadman named one of those as the greatest story told ever in wrestling:
“The Kane and Undertaker story is probably the greatest story ever told in wrestling. It’s up there. There’s so many layers to it. I think probably – it’s hard not to say my rivalry with Mick [Foley], I mean we did so many innovative things.”
Later in his career, The Undertaker set upon a run of four WrestleMania matches where he ended the career of Shawn Michaels and ended an era with Triple H. The Undertaker discussed that series of bouts and how they flowed into each other:
“But to tie everything together, the four matches that I had with Shawn [Michaels]– the two with Shawn and then the two with Triple H, I think are probably some of the best work that I did in my career. And to be able to tell a story for over four years, four WrestleManias in a row – because if you watch it, you know one leads into [another].”
“We all trusted our own instincts so that’s why those matches have such a kind of an organic flow to them. I mean, they just, we all had the same mindset, we all kind of thought and looked at the business the same way. They knew how to sell me, I knew what I had to do for them, I mean, those are tough matches to be.”
