The Undertaker’s undefeated WrestleMania streak was a selling point of ‘Mania itself. From 1991 until 2014, many tried and failed to end ‘The Streak’, until finally Brock Lesnar did so at WrestleMania XXX. Only Roman Reigns managed to defeat ‘The Deadman’ following this, bringing The Undertaker’s final streak to 25-2.
Among those who were unsuccessful in their attempts to end The Undertaker’s reign of terror were Shawn Michaels and Triple H. ‘The Heartbreak Kid’ challenged ‘Taker two times at WrestleManias XXV and XXVI, whereas ‘The Game’ tried three times at ‘Manias X-Seven, XXVII, and XXVIII. These are considered some of the best matches in the history of the event.
Speaking during an A&E Biography episode, The Undertaker detailed how he felt following his series of bouts between 2009 and 2012, feeling tremendously proud of the matches vs. the two D-Generation X members:
“To tie everything together, the four matches that I had with Shawn – 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].”
The Undertaker Defeated Numerous Hall Of Famers At WrestleMania
Upon reflection of The Undertaker’s list of WrestleMania opponents, the vast majority of his ‘Mania adversaries were either inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame or have remained legends of the business in their own right. Just under half now stand as WWE Hall of Famers, some of whom were actually inducted twice.
The Undertaker’s final WrestleMania opponent and indeed his final opponent ever was AJ Styles, defeating ‘The Phenomenal One’ in a critically-acclaimed Boneyard match on night one of WrestleMania 36.
