The Career of The Undertaker is an ongoing series here at Wrestling Bios, looking at every key match in the phenom’s long and illustrious career while keeping up with The Undertaker’s many gimmick changes and character updates. This video looks at The Undertaker’s reign as the WWE Undisputed Champion.
When the historic first ever brand split happened in 2002, it was decided that the Undisputed Champion would not be eligible for the draft. Instead, the WWE Undisputed Champion would be able to travel to both Raw and Smackdown, and competitors from each brand were able to challenge the title holder. Ric Flair presented Triple H with a new Undisputed Title Belt one week after the draft, and the first man who wanted a match with The Game was The Undertaker. ‘Taker would have to first win a match against Stone Cold Steve Austin at Backlash 2002 before he got a shot at the gold. In the end, Undertaker faced Hulk Hogan at Judgment Day 2002 for the title, and “Big Evil” was able to become the new WWE Undisputed Champion after defeating the Hulkster on Pay Per View.
During his reign as Undisputed Champion, The Undertaker would also feud with Jeff Hardy. The Jeff Hardy vs Undertaker feud is well remembered today thanks to their ladder match on Raw. While this was going on, The Undertaker would also feud with Smackdown’s Triple H, the number one contender for the title.
This video covers Undertaker’s entire run with the Undisputed Championship in 2002. Topics and matches covered include:
00:00 - The Number 1 Contender at Backlash 2002
05:40 - The Undertaker vs Hulk Hogan at Judgment Day 2002
07:40 - Undertaker feuds with RVD and The Hardy Boyz
11:25 - The Undertaker vs Triple H at King of The Ring
15:16 - The Jeff Hardy vs Undertaker Ladder Match
19:01 - The Undisputed Title runs ends

    Again, I'm one of the weirdos who actually enjoyed the Biker Taker gimmick. However, I also think that the Big Evil heel championship reign was the best of the Biker gimmick. Of course, who could forget this hilarious moment: *"I'll tell you what, why do you say 'what' if you like to sleep with your own sister?"* Iconic. Also, who could forget when he cut a hilariously intentional and generic babyface promo in Canada (while intentionally pausing in-between the "What" chants) before facing Randy Orton? Awesome stuff.

    Say what you want about the booking of a single championship over two shows but for me this run was Taker's best with the belt. Sure, he would win WHC's after this but this run was iconic. - He beat Hogan and HHH - Elevated RVD and Jeff - Had Mega Main event feel matches at PPV (even if the Matches weren't good) - Was a defending champ - Was part of a really underrated 3 way at Vengeance

    I still believe the ONE champion traveling both brands would benefit It would automatically elevate the mid card belts being exclusive to their respective brands, they just need more concrete rules for the one champion and as you said, better story telling. Jeff Hardy Vs. The Undertaker 2002 ladder match is my favorite match of all time

    When he got the title in 2002 you got the feeling that this was his favourite title win up until the time, his previous 3 as the deadman he had to act as Undertaker, this victory over Hogan, he could be Mark and cherish the few minutes in the ring after he won

    Terry...when you told your fans to "Stick it". You lost all credibility vitamin boy.😂I don't give a damn who justified it or set it up, you let it go to your head. Wrestling owes you a lot, but you are no God hollywood. The difference between you and Flair and was that Flair honestly admits he was an egomaniacal ass. Sting admitted his failures too. If you want to see excellence look at Taker, not in the mirror😂

    Even though I despised the character at the time, in hindsight this was my favourite version of The Undertaker. Using him as a dominant heel on RAW was genius, and he did a solid job of getting RVD & Jeff over. I think there was more potential to be mined from that dynamic with the lower card. They should have kept using him as a heel but also kept him strong like they were doing. There could have been big money in seeing the bully Undertaker being toppled, but the Vengeance Triple Threat was not the way to do it, as it left RAW superstars with no momentum.

    I was always let down that they didn't stick to one top champion during the brand split... It makes so much sense, it elevates the mid card belts automatically in US N IC, being the singles title exclusive to that brand. You make the top title more special with not over exposing it, Never liked 2 main titles for each brand

    My favourite thing about Big Evil was that Undertaker in 01 was very bland, during the Alliance story he was a glorified mid-carder and the turn fixed him very quick. One of my favourite wwe promo videos is Undertaker v The Rock from No Way Out 2002, can't find it on ALfirst but it's truly epic, he's at the peak of his respect storyline and Rock is just awesome when he's being serious

    As I recall the undisputed title because just the wwe title when Lenser refused to go on raw, not because Bishoff brought back the world heavyweight championship. I believe this is a rare mistake by you but with how good these series are, it can definitely be forgiven.
