In 2011, after a UFC event, The Undertaker made a special visit when he would find himself in a face to face, brief confrontation with one of the most dominant athletes the sports world will have ever seen, Brock Lesnar. People started to assume that this would lead to a match between the two entities one day at WrestleMania. These two have feuded in the past, back when Brock was still in the relative infancy stage in WWE. Yet he found himself victorious over The Undertaker, or the American Badass. As the years would go by, however, he would evolve into The Deadman where year after year, one foe would step forward and challenge the Undertaker, putting his streak on the line. Wrestling legends such as Triple H, Edge, and Shawn Michaels all valiantly stepped forward and gave the Deadman everything they had. Men such as Randy Orton, Mark Henry, CM Punk and Batista used their last resorts. Jimmy Snuka, King Kong Bundy and Ric Flair fought to till they couldn't lift another finger. But alas, they all fell at the mercy to the Undertaker, and another tombstone would be born. That is, until one fateful day in the graveyard on April 6th, 2014.
We all believed in the Undertaker's supernatural powers year after year. We knew that the adversary would do everything in his power to bring the Deadman to his knees and manage to get a pinfall or submission victory. But The Undertaker proved to us that death could not be beaten. No matter how hard the opposition would try, no matter how close Taker was at the edge of defeat and no matter how many times someone claims that the Undertaker will be defeated, we all knew it would be just another day in the office for The Phenom. This would be proven to me personally at WrestleMania 28 when Shawn Michaels, the guest referee in a Hell In A Cell match against Triple H, performed Sweet Chin Music right into a Pedigree putting the former D-Generation X finisher combination at the Undertaker's expense. Shawn quickly dropped to his knees and he counted 1, then 2, and I knew that no matter how hard the Undertaker tried, there would be no way that he could withstand such a flurry of attack. Shawn's hand raises to the air one more time, and just before it makes contact with the mat, the Undertaker wakes up with a burst of energy, and raises his shoulder. At that moment, I knew that the Undertaker could not possibly be beat. It would be unthinkable for anyone else to assume otherwise.
Yes, the Undertaker was indeed invincible. But now that phrase has become something of the past. Approaching WrestleMania XXX, Brock Lesnar definitely proved to have an edge in nearly every facet of the game. He could out wrestle the Undertaker and make him play at his game. But The Phenom is immortal. He could take anything the beast incarnate could dish out. The bell rang, and Brock slowly found himself gaining the upper hand with a series of wrestling holds and limb targeting attacks. However, I knew that there would be a point in time where Undertaker would regain the edge and attain the energy he needed to finish another future tomb dweller would go. The big boot, the leg drop, the running DDT. This is the Undertaker that needed to defeat Brock Lesnar. Brock wouldn't go down easily however. His persistence started to overwhelm the Undertaker as he kicked out of signature Chokeslams and sustaining the Hell's Gate submission hold. Therefore, there could be only one move that have sent 21 other challengers to their grave. The Tombstone Piledriver. Yet, Brock found himself with more energy, and he would not be beaten like that. Taker would need to do it again. Then, Taker found himself at Brock's mercy with a furious F-5, as well as another one. But Brock could not defeat death. The Undertaker would kick out, all though each near-fall started to become closer. It was time to put at end to it. The Undertaker is in prime position to win. But Brock reverses, and in an amazing feat of strength, hoists Taker on his shoulders, and puts him in the F-5 position. Taker's seemingly lifeless body hangs at Brock's shoulders, and in a circular motion, his semi-broken body plummets back to the Earth with a loud thud. But this was nothing. The Undertaker lose at WrestleMania? That could only be something that could be dreamt of. Mere illusions of grandeur. The Undertaker isn't about to succumb to the same man that has beaten him before in the past. Brock slowly goes to the cover, and lifts both of Taker's leg, that's unusual. 3 F-5's surely damaged the Taker badly, but...
