Top 10: The Undertaker Matches

By @TrueGodImmortal






The Undertaker is a phenom. We've known this for years. His character has been great for many years and amassed many classic matches, but what are his best? Let's take a look at his top 10.

10. Batista vs The Undertaker
Wrestlemania 23
-You'll see a lot of Mania matches from Taker here. This one shocked me, as he and Batista had great chemistry together and put on a 15 minute classic that stole the show hands down.

9. CM Punk vs The Undertaker
Wrestlemania 29
-This might seem slightly low perhaps, but it is easily the best match of WM 29 and the real main event. Punk and Taker put on a classic that remains one of my favorites personally, but just doesn't compare to the others on this list IMO in terms of importance and quality.

8. Edge vs The Undertaker
Summerslam 2008
-This is likely the most underrated Hell in A Cell match that Taker has, as it doesn't get mentioned enough. It was a great battle between these two to end a crazy feud that lasted over 8 months.

7. The Undertaker vs Shawn Michaels 
Wrestlemania 26
-The sequel to his ultimate classic and a match that you'll see later on this list. While this wasn't as good as the first, it was still a great match and a fitting end to HBK's career.

6. Brock Lesnar vs The Undertaker 
No Mercy 2002
-After it seemed like Taker was in the twilight of his career, he and Brock put on a classic inside the Cell, and it is miles ahead of their Hell in A Cell rematch in 2015.

5. Triple H vs The Undertaker 
Wrestlemania 28
-The rare occurrence when the sequel is better than the first one. A classic match that's once again in the Hell In A Cell structure. HHH and Taker put it all out there and HBK as the special referee made it fitting.

4. Edge vs The Undertaker 
Wrestlemania 24
-The first main event for Taker at Mania in 11 years, Taker closes the show out with an amazing display against Edge in a 30 minute contest that saw Taker win the World Heavyweight Title for the 2nd year in a row at Mania.

3. Kurt Angle vs The Undertaker
No Way Out 2006
-As a match, this is almost no. 1, as both Angle and Taker put on a clinic. Angle and Taker went back and forth for 30 minutes and I had the pleasure of watching this live. This is one of his most underrated matches and also one of his best.

2. Shawn Michaels vs The Undertaker 
Bad Blood 1997
-The greatest opponent of his career was HBK. This was the first Hell in A Cell match and it was groundbreaking. HBK and Taker put on a classic that still remains my personal favorite HIAC match. Also, the debut of Kane makes this more special.

1. Shawn Michaels vs The Undertaker
Wrestlemania 25
-The gold standard for any match in WWE. The apex of both men's careers. HBK and Taker put on a clinic and the match was truly something special. Nothing could outdo this match on Wrestlemania and I've not seen a match that was better than this since it occurred. This might be the greatest match ever in WWE and definitely one of the greatest matches in the history of wrestling. This was a no brainer.

-True
