Wrestlemania would not be the phenomenon it is today without the Phenom himself. The Undertaker let his Wrestlemania record speak for himself as he spent nearly three decades wowing fans on the biggest stage of them all.
The Deadman battled many foes at the “Grandaddy of them all” over the years, vanquishing challenger after challenger without competition, racking up the greatest win streak in the history of wrestling. He retired from the ring with the most wins in Wrestlemania history and had the longest undefeated streak in WWE history.
He battled the likes of Kane, Triple H, Jimmy Snuka and Brock Lesnar among a far-flung cast of characters to cement his legacy as the greatest WWE wrestler of all time and he stands at the top of any fans WWE Mount Rushmore. With his retirement in 2021 and being inducted into the 2022 WWE Hall of Fame, The Undertaker put an end to one of the greatest runs in wrestling history and retires with one of the best Wrestlemania records ever.
With The Streak no longer in tact since his 2014 defeat to Brock Lesnar, The Undertaker’s Wrestlemania record is no longer as pristine as it once was. However, his 25-2 record still boasts a remarkable 27 Wrestlemania matches against WWE’s all time top stars with only two defeats.
Here is our look at the incredible record at Wrestlemania of The Undertaker, analysing The Streak of 21-0 wins at the WWE’s flagship show and looking at all 27 matches, win lose or draw. Let us know your favourite Undertaker Wrestlemania match in the comments below.
The Undertaker’s Record At Wrestlemania
1-0 – vs Jimmy Snuka at Wrestlemania VII
The Undertaker’s first outing at Wrestlemania came against WWE Hall of Famer Jimmy Snuka. The feud between the pair was lacklustre and not much to write home about, but it least it helped start one of the most legendary streaks wrestling has ever seen.
The Deadman put away Superfly in 5 minutes, with a tombstone piledriving rounding off the comprehensive victory. This is not a match to go back and watch and exists merely to facilitate the Undertaker starting his Wrestlemania record off with a victory.
2-0 vs Jake “The Snake” Roberts at Wrestlemania VIII
His second bout at the “Show of Shows” was a face off against the “Master of the DDT” Jake Roberts. Also known as “The Snake”, Roberts was well known for his intense promos, hard-hitting in-ring style and his post match antics, which involved brining a snake to the ring to taunt his opponents with.
The match ended when Roberts was hit with a tombstone piledriver on the outside on the ring, before being rolled into the ring and pinned for the three count. This extended The Streak to 2 wins and 0 losses and kept the Deadman’s perfect Wrestlemania streak alive.
3-0 vs Giant González at Wrestlemania IX
Designated one of the worst matches in Wrestlemania history, The Undertaker’s streak almost came to an end when he faced off against Giant Gonzalez at Wrestlemania IX. The battle between the 7 foot Undertaker and 8 foot tall Gonzalez pitted two of the WWE’s biggest superstars against one another in a spectacle unlike any other.
Sadly, the match itself was awful. The Giant was a horrific wrestler and even The Deadman could not carry him to a good match. Whilst The Undertaker did pick up the win via disqualification, but it remained a slight blemish on an otherwise then-perfect Wrestlemania record.
4-0 vs King Kong Bundy at Wrestlemania XI
One of the more forgettable streak matches was his bout against King Kong Bundy. The feud concerned The Undertaker battling the corporation, who stole his magical urn. He fought King Kong Bundy over this, with Ted DiBiase at ringside.
The Deadman fought off all manner of interference to pin Bundy with a powerslam and a clothesline to retain his pride and win back his urn, in a Streak match you can probably go back and skip.
5-0 vs Diesel at Wrestlemania XII
The Undertaker extended his Wrestlemania record by defeating Diesel AKA Kevin Nash at Wrestlemania XII.
6-0 vs Sycho Sid at Wrestlemania 13
In the main event of Wrestlemania 13, The Deadman defeated Sycho Sid to win the WWE Champion. It was a decent match that was overshadowed by Bret Hart vs Stone Cold Steve Austin which happened earlier on the show
7-0 vs Kane at Wrestlemania XIV
One of the Undertaker’s biggest early streak matches came at the end of a long and compelling storyline against his estranged brother, Kane. The duo fought over their shared past when Undertaker killed their parents and sent Kane away to live in a mental asylum, before being brought back to wrestling by his father Paul Bearer.
Kane debuted at Bad Blood 1997 but would not step into the ring with The Deadman until Wrestlemania XIV. He was defeated by The Undertaker at Wrestlemania to extended the Phenom’s record to 7-0 and keep the streak alive.
8-0 vs Big Boss Man at Wrestlemania XV
9-0 – Triple H at Wrestlemania X-Seven
The first of three Undertaker vs Triple H matches at Wrestlemania came at Wrestlemania X-Seven
10-0 vs Ric Flair at Wrestlemania X8
The Deadman made it 10-0 when he defeated Ric Flair at Wrestlemania X8 in a dream match that WWE fans still reminisce upon to this day. The match was particularly memorable for the brief return of Arn Anderson, who hit the Phenom with his trademark AA Spinebuster for a near fall.
11 vs A-Train & Big Show at Wrestlemania XIX
Nathan Jones missed out on the tag match due to some backstage issues, so The Undertaker defeated A-Train and Big Show in the only handicap match in the Streak.
12-0 vs Kane at Wrestlemania XX
Kane became the first man to lose to The Undertaker twice at “The Grandaddy of them all” when the two brothers faced off again at Wrestlemania XX. This time, Kane sported a new look without his mask but featured the same sibling rivalry that WWE fans had grown to love.
13-0 vs Randy Orton at Wrestlemania 21
The Streak was proposed to end at Wrestlemania 21, with Randy Orton turning down the honour. However, Randy Orton vs The Undertaker still put on a classis Streak match with one of the best stories WWE had put on for years.
Randy Orton was “The Legend Killer” and had taken out a variety of different wrestling icons like Dusty Rhodes, Sgt Slaughter and many more. The next man in his sights was The Deadman, and tried his best to take down the legendary Phenom on the biggest stage possible. While he was obviously unsuccessful, the feud is still fondly remembered and went a huge way into making Orton a huge star in WWE.
14-0 vs Mark Henry at Wrestlemania 22
The streak of great matches came to an end when Mark Henry took on The Deadman at Wrestlemania. It was the first time a casket match was done in one of these matches, and The World’s Strongest Man was defeated handily during his attempt to end the streak.
15-0 vs Batista at Wrestlemania 23
In what many think should have been the main event of Wrestlemania 23, The Undertaker won the Royal Rumble match in 2007 and challenged Batista for his prestigious World Heavyweight Championship. The matches build up was intense, with both men seemingly hating each other and wanting nothing more than to put the other in the ground.
They put on a Wrestlemania classic which extended The Deadman’s record to 15-0 at Wrestlemania. While it was beaten to the main event by Shawn Michaels vs John Cena, this match showcased that The Undertaker was as good as he ever was and continued to be a legend in the ring even well into his 40s.
16-0 vs Edge at Wrestlemania 24
His next main event came against Edge at Wrestlemania 24, with the World Heavyweight title on the line. Battling against Edge and La Familia, he had to contend with the likes of Zack Ryder, Curt Hawkins and Chavo Guerrero to try and regain the world title.
The Undertaker defeated Edge in the Wrestlemania 24 main event in a classic match that would be remembered as one of the great closing matches at the event.
17-0 vs Shawn Michaels at Wrestlemania 25
Hailed as one of the greatest wrestling matches of all time, The Undertaker extended his Wrestlemania record to 17-0 when he defeated Shawn Michaels in 2009. “The Showstopper” took the Deadman to the limit in an incredible match but came out just short as he failed to end the streak.
The match is infamous for failing to achieve a five-star rating from Dave Meltzer. Many fans have called it “the perfect match” and it even won the Slammy for Match of the Year in 2009.
18-0 vs Shawn Michaels at Wrestlemania 26
One year later the rematch of the year happened when Shawn Michaels was forced to retire at Wrestlemania 26. With the match not quite hitting the highs of the years prior, both men still put on a classic match that wowed fans.
Mr Wrestlemania lost to The Phenom in the main event of Wrestlemania to send Shawn Michaels into retirement due to the “Streak vs Career” stipulation placed upon the match.
19-0 vs Triple H at Wrestlemania 27
The Undertaker took on Shawn Michaels DX teammate Triple H at the next two Wrestlemania’s. The Game took the Deadman to the limit in the first match, with both men barely waking out of the arena due to the hardships they put each other through during the match.
20-0 vs Triple H at Wrestlemania 28
The next year they clashed again inside a Hell in a Cell match. This was the closest the Streak had come to ending in the past 20 years, with Shawn Michaels as the special referee for the bout clearly favouring Triple H.
The spot where the pair hit The Deadman with a Superkick/Pedigree combination for the nearest near fall of all time. He kicked out at 2.9999 to the shock of everyone in the arena and rallied to make his comeback and extend his Wrestlemania record to 20-0, a legendary feat by the Phenom.
21-0 vs CM Punk at Wrestlemania 29
Perhaps the best match of both men’s career, The Undertaker vs CM Punk was the last match that the legendary streak stayed in tact. After 434 days as WWE Champion, CM Punk was peeved at being usurped for the main event of Wrestlemania by John Cena vs The Rock, so instead turned his attention to tarnishing the Deadman’s perfect Wrestlemania record.
While he came up short, CM Punk proved why he was the best in the world by taking The Deadman to his limits and stealing the show from Cena vs Rock. It was a match of the year candidate and a match you can go back and watch countless times. A true Wrestlemania classic and the last great Undertaker matches of his career.
21-1 vs Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania XXX
“The Streak…is over.”
The legendary words of Michael Cole rang out at the Superdome, as the shocked face of Paul Heyman yelling “Oh my god!” was burned into the retinas of every WWE fan. The Deadman had finally fallen, his shoulders on the mat for the three count and his legendary streak had been broken by none other than Brock Lesnar.
The match wasn’t a classic, but it didn’t need to be. Even if The Undertaker hadn’t been concussed early on in the match, the quality of it would have been irrelevant. All that match needed to be remembered was to have Brock Lesnar end The Streak and ruin The Undertaker’s Wrestlemania record once and for all.
22-1 vs Bray Wyatt at Wrestlemania 31
After a year away from the ring, The Undertaker reacted to the end of his streak by defeating young star Bray Wyatt at Wrestlemania 31. A foot injury put Wyatt on the back foot early on and The Deadman took control of the match.
He defeated Wyatt with a tombstone piledriver in a disappointing match, especially given how he only turned up for the match and Bray Wyatt had to sell the entire feud by himself on the episodes of Raw running up to the event.
23-1 vs Shane McMahon at Wrestlemania 32
When Shane McMahon returned to battle his father Vince McMahon for control of the WWE, nobody could have guessed he would face the Legendary Deadman in a Hell in a Cell match at Wrestlemania.
However, that is exactly what happened. The match lasted 30 minutes and was probably about 15 minutes too long, but provided one of the great Wrestlemania moments when Shane McMahon leapt from the top of the cage and came crashing down through the announce table.
The Undertaker pinned Shane McMahon to win the match and extend his Wrestlemania record to 23-1. While the streak had been dead for a few years, a match against him at Wrestlemania was still a huge deal for whoever was in the ring.
23-2 vs Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania 33
The second loss for The Deadman at Wrestlemania came at the 33rd year of the event, with a disappointing loss to Roman Reigns. The Big Dog put away a sorry looking Phenom, whose injuries were clearly piling up as he struggled to walk around the ring and lift up his opponent.
Reigns hit him with a huge spear to win the match, with Jim Ross on commentary for what was supposed to be Undertaker’s final match. It certainly had that feel when he left his hat and coat in the ring after the match, but his loss to Roman Reigns would not be his last match, just a big blemish on his Wrestlemania record.
24-2 vs John Cena at Wrestlemania 34
A dream match for all WWE fans came at Wrestlemania 34. The Undertaker vs John Cena was a match that was rumoured to be considered during the mid 2000s at Wrestlemania, but never came to fruition due to one reason or another.
However, with his career coming to an end, the legendary Deadman chose John Cena as one of his last opponents, with The Champ goading him over a number of weeks to return to face him at Wrestlemania. The Undertaker squashed John Cena in the match that lasted just a few minutes but sent the fans home happy seeing this WWE dream match they never thought they’d see again.
25-2 vs AJ Styles at Wrestlemania 36
The final opponent of The Undertaker, both at Wrestlemania and in his entire career, was AJ Styles. The former TNA star was chosen to end the legendary career of The Phenom, with their Wrestlemania bout in 2020.
However, the match did not go off without a hitch. Despite building up to a one-on-one encounter inside the ring at Wrestlemania 36, the pandemic forced both men to wrestle the match behind closed doors and without any fans in attendence.
Due to this, the bout was a cinematic-style match, in the vein of the “Final Deletion” match in TNA. It was billed as a “Boneyard Match” and saw Undertaker battling Styles and his partners Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson in an abandoned home and a graveyard.
The Deadman would walk off into the sunset with a win by burying AJ Styles alive, putting an end to his legendary career with a victory. The Undertaker’s Wrestlemania record ended at 25-2, giving him the most wins in the history of Wrestlemania and solidifying him as the greatest WWE wrestler of all time,
