We all are 50/50 on whether The Undertaker will be at Wrestlemania 29 or not. The main reason we are is because of his health. This leads to a question that I have. What else does The Undertaker have to prove?
The Deadman has had many achievements including being the World Heavyweight Champion, WWE Champion, Hardcore Champion, and his most notifying accomplishment of all, 20-0 at Wrestlemania. The Undertaker has defeated the likes of Batista, Triple H, Shawn Michaels, Jake "The Snake" Roberts. He has also defeated his own brother, Kane on the grandest stage of them all on a couple occasions.
Whether you would like to admit it or not, whenever you hear the word "Wrestlemania" you think of The Undertaker one way or another. With out a doubt The Undertaker plays a huge part of Wrestlemania. Every year he competes, he puts his body and what may be the most important thing he has, which is the famous streak on the line. He faced Shawn Michaels at Wrestlemania 25 and ended Mr. Wrestlemania's career at Wrestlemania 26 in a rematch in what may have been one of my favorite matches from both competitors. When Wrestlemania 27 came, it was The Undertaker vs Triple H in a No Holds Barred. A match that at the end, The Undertaker may have won the battle, but Triple H won the war. For the first time in a long time, The Undertaker could not stand on his own two feet by himself. This made The Undertaker paranoid, and he demanded a rematch at Wrestlemania 28. Triple H did not want to accept but was later forced to after some words that The Undertaker said. This match was soon to be booked inside Hell In A Cell, with special guest referee, the man who's career was ended by The Undertaker, Shawn Michaels.
This may have been the match that we all thought that the streak was going to be over. Considering The Phenom's age, the special referee being Shawn Michaels, the match stipulation, and the tagline for this match...End Of An Era. I honestly thought it was going to be over but after all those near falls, The Undertaker was now 20-0. The three men helped walk each other out after a brutal match, and we saw a camera shot that was one of the best in my opinion. It shouted out respect when The Undertaker, Triple H, and Shawn Michaels had a group hug on the stage.
With The Undertaker's health and history, I would personally be fine if he decided not to do Wrestlemania. We know he returned at a house show on February 22, 2013, but he did not appear on TV at the February 25, 2013 edition of Raw, so we do not know yet if he will do Wrestlemania 29. If he does not do Wrestlemania this year, I will be fine with that because he has proven that he is one of the greatest, if not the greatest of all time. If he does compete at Wrestlemania, by all means, this is just something more to look forward to. What else does The Phenom have left to prove?
