The Undertaker will forever be regarded as a legend in the world of professional wrestling. His contributions to the business will never be forgotten as he has given 30 years of his life and sacrificed his body. It seems Batista had a chip on his shoulder over his WrestleMania 23 match against The Undertaker.
The Undertaker had his final match against AJ Styles at WrestleMania 36 in a Boneyard match. The match was a resounding success and received a lot of critical praise from fans and Superstars alike.
At WrestleMania 23, The Undertaker challenged Batista for the World Heavyweight Championship in one of the main events of the pay-per-view. The match received a lot of praise from fans and pro wrestlers alike, where The Undertaker won in the end.
While speaking on WWE’s the Bump, The Undertaker talked about his WrestleMania 23 match against Batista. The Undertaker stated that Batista had a chip on his shoulder during the match.
“We really did have a good match. Batista had a chip on his shoulder. He wanted to go out and steal the show. He was the champion going into that match and he felt slighted that we weren’t in the main event. He was so motivated to go out there and steal the show. It was a lot of fun. I think that was one of his better matches and not just because of me but because of the motivation that he had. He was so in-tune and I remember coming back through the curtain after it was all over and he came back. I remember him yelling out in Gorilla, ‘Follow that!’ And I was thinking to myself, that’s cool, but you know, Shawn’s still got to work.”
The Undertaker and Batista would have more matches after their WrestleMania match and it remains one of Batista’s best feuds in his WWE career.
