The Undertaker

With matches at WrestleMania 34, the Greatest Royal Rumble, and Super Show-Down all in the bag and Crown Jewel's Brothers Of Destruction vs. DX battle on the horizon (2 November), 2018 has been a surprisingly busy year for The Undertaker, who hasn't worked this many bouts since 2015.

'Taker has been wrestling since 1984, with 28 of his 34 active years coming in WWE, for whom he has become one of the most beloved performers of all time. The impact he has had on the business cannot be overstated, and his place in history is more secure than Fort Knox. Still, while 'The Deadman' has been granted sacred cow status by many a fan, his lengthy WWE career hasn't been without its troughs, as we're about to find out.

His vast résumé means fitting everything Undertaker has done throughout his run into this list would be impossible. With that in mind, we've largely stuck to bigger picture topics, though we'd be remiss not to mention a handful of historically great (and terrible) storylines.

Let's dive into the madness and magic of WWE's most iconic gimmick.


A caffeine-dependent life-form from the frozen wastes of north east Scotland. He once tried to start a revolution but didn't print enough pamphlets, so hardly anyone turned up. Give him a follow @andyhmurray. You'll have a great time. Maybe.
