WWE legend The Undertaker has discussed what he feels is the greatest compliment any WWE superstar can hope for.
The Dead Man has been out promoting next year’s WrestleMania. The event will take place at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, and will be the second time the event has emanated from the arena. On the first occasion at WrestleMania 32, The Undertaker battled Shane McMahon inside Hell In A Cell.
Speaking to The CW 33 in Dallas, Texas, The Undertaker how any superstar should have goal of getting on a WrestleMania card, and the esteem a spot in the main event of ‘The Showcase Of The Immortals’ is held in.
WrestleMania is the equivalent to our industry as the Super Bowl is to the NFL. You work your tail off all year so you’re on the card at WrestleMania. That’s kinda your first goal. ‘I want to be on the card at WrestleMania.’ Ultimately, I think the greatest compliment that you can get is to be the Main Event at WrestleMania.
WrestleMania 38 is going to be the most stupendous two-night WrestleMania in history.
The Undertaker knows a lot about that coveted spot on the WrestleMania card, having held it five times during his illustrious career. The first occasion came back in 1997, when ‘The Phenom’ defeated Psycho Sid in the main event of WrestleMania 13 to win the WWE World Championship.
It would be 11 more years before The Undertaker got another top of the bill match at ‘Mania, when he would defeat Edge to once again take the top belt in WWE. In 2010 he would defeat Shawn Michaels, when not only was his WrestleMania streak on the line, but HBK’s career.
There is only one blemish on The Phenom’s main event record at the event, losing to Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 33. He would go on to make his final appearance on the first night of WrestleMania 36, beating AJ Styles in the Boneyard Match.
The Undertaker recently confirmed that his “time has gone” when it comes to stepping in to the squared circle.
