The Undertaker is one of the few remaining true superstars competing for WWE. For the past 26 years, he has dominated the WWE unlike any other force. Whether the Dead Man, the Bad Ass, The Phenom, or even Booger Red, regardless of his nickname the Undertaker conquered endless opponents leaving behind a path of destruction unrivaled by any other performer. His legendary undefeated streak at WrestleMania lead to him being one of the biggest draws in wrestling history, and his success continues today, although the streak was eventually broken by Brock Lesnar.
The Undertaker debuted in WWE in 1990 after a significantly less relevant stint in WCW. He’s since been a part of some of the craziest and most violent moments in WWE history. He is a 7-time WWE World Champion and has won countless other titles along the way, earning millions of dollars for himself and for Vince McMahon while he did so. The most endearing and memorable moments of the Undertaker often tie into his mystique and his mystery, even if sometimes that gets a little bit too cartoony for its own good. Over the past decade, the Undertaker has been very protective of his character, and WWE has mostly treated him with the utmost respect in consideration of that fact. However, for the first half of his career, some pretty goofy stuff went down.

1 He Buried Paul Bearer Alive in Cement
About nine years before Paul Bearer actually passed away, the Undertaker “killed” him on TV by burying him in cement. Bearer had been inextricably linked with the Undertaker for both of their entire WWE careers, and that was the reason Paul Heyman put Bearer’s life on the line when he needed the Dead Man to see who was boss. The Undertaker fought the Dudley Boyz in a handicap match, with Undertaker told to lose or else Bearer would be buried alive in cement. The Undertaker won anyway and even did the honors of flipping the switch of the cement truck, effectively “killing” Bearer for the next six years. How many times do we need to say it? Murder and wrestling shouldn't mix. Luckily, the Undertaker would gradually become more grounded over the next few years, although he always managed to maintain his mystique. He never quite lost those magic powers, either.
