The Undertaker is an American professional wrestler signed to WWE. He is the company's most tenured performer, and he's also the only remaining active competitor from the very first episode of WWE Raw in 1993. Calaway began his wrestling career with World Class Championship Wrestling (WCCW) in 1984. In 1990, Calaway signed with the World Wrestling Federation and The Undertaker was born. The rest, as they say, was history!

Kevin Nash’s Top 10 – Taker’s at #2
Nash’ s top 10 consists only of talent that he has worked with at some point in his career.
Nash’s opponent from WrestleMania XII, The Undertaker, stands second on his list.
“‘Taker was the only big guy who, night in and night out, I could have a match worth watching with,” said Nash. “That’s hard to say, there aren’t many big guys like that. He could do everything. Storytelling, his ability to always work scripted, work on the fly, casket matches, gimmick matches, everything.”
The rest of the list is at the source link:

They say dont mess with diesel but anan and gang how can this be diesel second favourite,he delivered bloody three jacknife power bomb finisher on the undertaker and yet taker got up,i was young at that time and supported diesel 😉 and also duke the dumpster.
as always off topic
@yousif@anan@ed and gang:
even yousif has lost the momentum of not having brock vs taker AGAIN well….rumors popping up again
now we will have to see what exactly happens on september 24th,In my opinion my best bet is Goldberg will cause double disqualification here,wwe is using the undertaker for name sake now,afaik regarding john cena he will be given title shot at wrestlemania 33 rather facing the undertaker.

HI bro .
I didn’t lost the momentum at all . I still think the only thing can stop taker brock happening again is a sudden retirement of taker or brock not renewing the contract . If in coming 1.5 Years They are still active . This match will happen for sure …. and i will love to watch it ..
The thing is Dhansh . I dont want to talk bout it anymore here ..
Kevin Nash was a good wrestler but there is no comparison between him and the undertaker in terms of …in ring abilities

Correction: It was 2 Jacknife powerbombs.
Taker vs Diesel was one of the better big man vs big man matches. There are not many of those because many of Taker and Kevin Nash’s size lack mobility in the ring. Taker, Kane, Nash are just a few of the rare exceptions.
I have no problem with Taker being #2. He’s higher than Bret Hart who was picked #3. Bret had more matches with Diesel/Kevin Nash than Taker did. Bret’s considered by many including Taker as one of the very best in the business so for Taker to be higher than Bret, it says a lot and I think Taker would be honored to be higher than him.
I think AJ Styles being chosen #1 is something personal to Kevin. Kevin faced AJ in TNA at an high age (50 I think) whereas when he fought Taker, he was younger. The fact that he was able to have the kind of matches he did with AJ, I think he’s proud of that so I think that is why Styles was #1. Plus he’s a fan of AJ and wants to see him reach where any AJ/wrestling fan wants him to…the top of WWE as its world champion which Nash believes will happen. If WWE doesn’t hold him back, then I agree with him.

It’s funny when Nash puts out a list of his top 10 opponents nobody bats an eye. But when Nash says WCW almost signed Taker to a contract everyone loses their minds. Some even call him a liar. Funny.
Nash did have some amazing matches with AJ. The fact that while being in his mid 50s he could hang with AJ in matches is great. Nash always said he hated working with big guys. Taker being #2 on his list is good since Nash always said Taker was the only big guy that could give him a good match.

@Tony Perry and Thy Serpent:
Agreed. Taker put over Brock more than anyone else has in Lesnar’s original run as well as his current run. 2002, HIAC. 2003, Biker Chain match. 2014, WM30. 2015, HIAC. Lesnar cleanly defeated Taker in 3 of those matches. Only the Biker Chain match had interference. 2002 HIAC, Taker went in with a broken hand on a cast. But no interference in the match. Taker’s only PPV win over Lesnar, is the controversial Summerslam victory. Brock really should returned the favor that night. He didn’t. Then a year later, after failing a drug test, he still closes Summerslam with Orton and wins via Total Knock Out.
Fact is Lesnar’s been getting more than he deserves. Still waiting the day he FINALLY jobs to someone. WM33 could be that night. If he’s called up by then I;m guessing he’ll job to Samoa Joe. Considering he lost the NXT Title, which is a usual sign for an eventual call up, I’d say his main roster call up is imminent. If not by WM33, then maybe by the next Summerslam as calls ups are also reserved for post-WM RAW’s.
As for Taker, I’d say he’s moved on from Lesnar and his next challenge….WM33, John Cena.

Really? I thought it could stand for either or. I saw at a Total Knock Out as Orton was out. Depends on how one looks at it I guess. Different interpretations will be made on it as they are about many things.
You may not respect Nash for “going into business for himself” and that’s fine. But I don’t know if that means you blame him for doing so or not. You didn’t state such so I guess you don’t. Who can justifiably blame him though? He was in a physical line of work with a history of bad knees. WCW offered him a guarantee of a lot of money (not sure of it’s more than WWE) to work less than WWE where if he stayed in WWE, he’d have to work more than his knees probably would have wanted him to. You have to listen to your body. It’s one of the keys to health. WWE schedules are harder back in those days then they are now and even now it’s still grueling. I wish he stayed in WWE as he was made a household name there. But I don’t blame him for leaving. TO be positive about it, it did birth the nWo which led to dark Sting and the best build in WCW from a ratings standpoint, Sting vs Hogan. It could have been done without Nash, sure. But don’t know how effective it would have been without him, Hall and Hogan. Maybe a few might be exceptions, certainly by a certain point by their careers, but a lot of wrestlers are drawn in or drawn back in with the big money. If it wasn’t for the money and the bonus being the less work, I see no reason why Nash would have gone as most of his friends were still in WWE when he left. And he left as a top guy as his last (televised) match was a WWF Title match at IYH against HBK.

It wasn’t a total knockout as Orton was coherent enough to put his arms in a defensive position to try and block the blows. Lesnar landed 2 shots which split Orton open but didn’t put him out. That’s why it was deemed a TKO short for technical knockout. If Orton was out cold, and didn’t try to hold his hands to block the shots then it’s deemed a KO short for a knockout.
I respect your thoughts on Nash and what he did but I felt it was selfish and not an honorable way to do business. The WWE would have squashed any thoughts of him unmasking Mysterio and some of his other antics he pulled in WCW. That’s the reason I have no respect for him because of his lack of respect for tradition and history of the business at that time back in the late 90s. He knew he could do what he wanted at the expense of some very respected talent and WCW. I feel that’s utter disrespect on his part.
- Anan on September 3rd, 2016 says:
Respect your thoughts on Nash as well. Was it selfish? I don’t know. I don’t think it’s selfish to do what’s best for yourself and I believe that is what he was doing. I don’t know if he left prior to his WWF contract ending. What Nash did was fine aside from Brock Lesnar. At least Nash’s last WWF match was an actual contested match. Lesnar’s top billed WM20 match was nothing but a big F**K You to the fans and WWE who made him the name he was, then walked out. I don’t even think he completely honored his contract and walked away from a multi-million dollar deal. Mind you it was after Hogan, Rock, and multiple times Taker put him over. Once UFC wouldn’t have him anymore, low and behold, back in WWE around the same amount of money if not more, this time though as a part-timer who comes, wins, collects the big money checks, leaves. Hardly ever around during his last Title run. Pretty much same for Punk except he was full-time and had better reasons to leave though I disagree with how he left and his bashing of WWE ever since. Not the same for Nash. And I’m not trying to say what Nash did was right or condone his leaving or anything like that. I liked Diesel and wished he stayed. But it’s all in the past now. He and WWE are on good terms now as they put him in the HOF and he’s made returns to the company after WCW died. WOuld WWE agree to Rey losing his mask? I don’t know if they won’t. WWE seems to have a habit of screwing things up. They unmasked Kane eventually. Had Rey been in WWE longer, especially during the Attitude Era where everything happened, who’s to say his unmasking would not have happened? We won’t know. Maybe he put a clause in his WWE contract that prevented them from going in that direction. Who knows? As for his other antics, I don’t know. He was part of The Kliq in WWF and they controlled backstage, politicked their way to whatever, it’s what they’re notoriously known for.
So we disagree on Nash leaving but respect each other’s opinions. I don’t think his sharp mind for the business can be disputed though. He’ll be an improvement over WWE’s current hollywood writers who know nothing about wrestling. AJ will be pushed farther if Nash was there as Nahs would favor him seeing as how he’s an AJ fan, praising him and all that.
Been giving my two cents on Nash all along here. I have no contact with him nor am I a mind reader so I don’t know for sure why he left. While it may have been disrespectful and dome like yourself feel that way, was not to the extent of Lesnar, who’s been rewarded since returning to WWE when full-timers who bust their ass are held back because he comes in and takes their spot. Speaking of, thanks for clearing up Orton-Lesnar. I saw parts of Summerslam, not that match though. Knew Lesnar would win which I didn’t like. But what I disliked just as much as him closing the show and even having a match after he failed his drug test knowing anyone else would have been off the show and replaced, suspended or released by WWE.

I didn’t have a problem with Nash leaving WWE when he did in 1996. I had a problem with how he booked WCW in late 1998 and early 1999 when he was in charge. That’s the period of time where the cracks in WCWs’ foundation opened up into sinkholes.
Brock is an entirely different subject all together.
- Anan on September 5th, 2016 says:
That’s true about the cracks opening up in WCW’s foundation. However, to go deeper into WCW’s foundation cracks, there were problems before Nash became booker. Considering some of the names they had running the ship before, he was a better choice despite his politics. Everyone knows about Jim Herd and his illogical booking. Ole Andersen was the one who saw nothing in Taker which was clearly a big mistake.
