    I think Undertaker and Chris Jericho could almost be the 2 best wrestlers of all time. Both were able to change with the times and never got stale. Hogan, Austin, Bret, the Rock, Cena, all were the same character more or less. The more I watch this channel, the more I'm impressed on how well Wrestling Bios does research and explains everything. Another fantastic video.

    What was Mankind’s problem with the Undertaker? Why did he come in and immediately start attacking him?

    Just giving you a heads up. The Undertaker actually won the buried alive match against Mankind. He covered him up with enough dirt to give him the win. But while he was trying to fully cover him, he was hit in the back of the head by a shovel from The Executioner. Then Mankind was pulled out of the grave, and him and the other heels buried Taker alive. But The Undertaker is credited for winning the match. Just giving you a heads up. You're channel is awesome! Love all your wrestling content!

    Ahhh, Mankind/Undertaker fued of the mid 90's... The culmination of my trajectory as a wrestling fan. I started watching in the mid 80's, and Cactus Jack was one of the first wrestlers that I ever had the pleasure of watching (NWA/Eastern Championship, I think. Maybe only NWA... I can't remember) on video tape. Then, around 1988 or 89, when I really started watching WWF, the wrestlers I actually enjoyed watching over there were few and far between... until Survivor Series, and The Undertaker. By the time it actually happened, I had been waiting for several years to see Mick Foley and 'Taker fight each other... and I was NOT disappointed!

    I assumed the tear drop was to represent the moarning of Kane. Wouldn't that make sense since Bearer was feuding with Taker, and Taker was afraid of Bearer exposing Taker's secret? I know that part of the angle happened a bit later on after Taker first started the tear drop gimmick, but I think my theory is backed by the common representation of what a teardrop tattoo under the eye means, and in most cases it represents the people you feel guilty killing

    I had no idea that Kevin Nash actually was playing the dead Diesel during that scene. Nash totally sells the drama upon discovering his dead self. I just always thought twas a lookalike in the casket that Diesel gasped at, but knowing the camera trickery gone into it now, its actually even more impressive. And you are right about it being an under rated scene in the Undertakers canon. For its pre Attitude Era time aswell, its quite eerie and envelope pushing.

    I was 6 and 7 years old watching Cactus Jack debut as Mankind and fued with the Undertaker. And winning. It was so exciting knowing his history as Cactus feuding with Big Van Vader and the powerbomb on the pavement. As a kid I was totally invested with my friends. Lol.

    I think some of the accounts leaving positive comments on this video are fake/bots. Especially the ones that say generic things like "this is the best channel ever!" which can literally be copied and pasted onto any comment section. Just click on some of these channels and you'll see they have zero activity on them. It's very common for creators to purchase fake views, comments, and subs.

    Good stuff, but Taker actually won the Buried Alive match with Mankind. The interference and Taker getting buried happened after that

    Even if Prichard says it was a dummy, that was a real man. And the side view of that nose before Nash closed the casket, looked like that Glen Jacobs nose... That just makes me think these WWE producers are willing to hide truths even outside the ring.

    I give you major props but I have to correct an error you made as someone who I admit am an undertaker mark(no pun intended), but Undertaker actually won the Buried Alive match against mankind, it’s a common misconception that Mankind won considering how the show ended. Executioner hit with him with the shovel after the bell ring and then the heels joined in. Go back and watch it yourself.

    Hey bro love your insight. Love the channel. But there is one mistake i caught. Mankind did not win the buried alive match. Undertaker won that. The part with the executioner and the others happened after Taker was awarded the win. If you go back and watch it. You'll see what I'm talking about.

    WrestleMania XII was what I like to think the end of the 'Undead Avenger' era for The UnderTaker in WWE. Anything from April 1 on to the 1996 Survivor Series was Taker starting to explore darker and more violent content to his character, truly becoming fearsome before the 'Lord Of Darkness' era began. And a slight correction here, W-B....Taker WON the Buried Alive Match.

He buried Mankind enough for the Referee to make the call. It was after this that all the heels came in. They got Mankind out of the grave and they put the Deadman in and buried him completely.

    All of your videos are great, but your most recent vids have been epic. Your Undertaker series and 2 Man Power Trip vids in particular are on another level. Thank you for bringing back so many great memories- when the WWF had real stars.Taker was awesome from 90-99. Diesel was at his best in 96- he was meant to be a heel. Their W12 match was the 2nd best match of the event- 2nd only to Shawn vs Bret. 96 was some of Taker's best work too. His persona reinventions up through 99 were brilliant. Thank you for making these works of fine art.

    Love this channel. Please keep up the good work! One small caveat though. Although Taker did get buried at SS 96, he had already won the match at this point.
