The Undertaker often doesn't get the credit he deserves for being so selfless over the course of his career.
The Phenom will go down as one of the greatest of all-time for his iconic character alone, not to mention everything he's accomplished in the ring from multiple WrestleMania main events to seven world championships. Although he holds victories over the illustrious likes of Stone Cold Steve Austin, Hulk Hogan and John Cena, that doesn't mean he hasn't suffered a few unnecessary losses along the way.
In fact, it can argued that 'Taker was a bit too generous at times with who he let defeat him. In theory, a win over Undertaker should cement any up-and-comer as a star, but that was far from the case with countless individuals. The mystique surrounding his unique persona was always strong enough that he never endured much damage from losing as often as he did, but what was more worrisome was how the people who pinned him barely benefited from the honor and faded off into obscurity soon after.
Thankfully, Undertaker has picked his spots a bit better over the last decade or so, but why WWE put so many of the following misfits over him in the first place remains a mystery to this day.
