The Wrestling Bios "Career of The Undertaker" series continues. The Phenom has just came out of WrestleMania XX in 2004 and his return was a success, and now The Phenom would face his first challenger on the Smackdown Brand... Booker T.
Booker T vs The Undertaker was a short feud that only last a few weeks yet it was quite memorable. While Booker T tried to get assistance from "the other side" to defeat 'Taker, it was no good. The Undertaker was able to defeat the 5 time WCW champion at Judgment Day 2004. From here The Undertaker would begin a longer rivalry with WWE Champion JBL, resulting in 2 pay per view matches. The first happened at Summerslam 2004, and the second was "The Last Ride" match at No Mercy.
After feuding with Heidenreich, The Undertaker found himself without a WrestleMania opponent. "The Legend Killer" Randy Orton decided to challenge the phenom in a special "Legend vs Legend Killer" match at WrestleMania 21.. and a lot of fans weren't so sure if The Undertaker could keep his undefeated streak intact.
Topics and matches covered in this video:
00:00 - 'Taker vs Booker
04:45 - Paul Bearer and the cement filled crypt
08:43 - The Undertaker challenges for the WWE Championship

    Randy was supposed to beat the Undertaker here, refused to do it, I think it’s the biggest mistake WWE ever made not having Randy beat him. Could you imagine what that would have done to his already incredible career??

    The build up to the Armageddon match had one of my favorite lines from JBL. After he said he wouldn't be putting up the title again (or something to that effect), Guerrero, Booker, and Taker all came out to say they wanted a shot. JBL said, "I just said I wouldn't be defending my title! Now I have to say it in Spanish, I have to say it in Ebonics, and I have to say it in Monster!" As for Orton, I swear I heard somewhere that they did consider him beating Taker at Mania, that even Taker himself agreed to it, but Orton apparently refused out of respect for Taker.

    The funny thing is that this was Orton at his peak of being an asshole backstage, and yet both WWE and 'Taker approached him about ending The Streak at Wrestlemania 21, but Orton said "No" as the streak and Undertaker was too sacred to end at that time.

    I turned out of wrestling round this time as I couldn't buy into JBL at all and still can't stand him today but jumped in and out. Hydenrike was also one of the worst pushes and vignettes I ever witnessed Never watched Orton v Taker but will give it a go on that recommendation Great upload as always WB

    You are incorrect. Undertaker first appearance after Wrestlemania 20 was the following Smackdown when he came out in the same attire but with a bandana. He tomb stoned Paul Heyman in the presence of Eddie and Rey Mysterio.

    No doubt when Undertaker returned as the deadman his best feud was against Randy Orton. Lots of people know Orton was offered to be the one to end the streak but declined. Their WM match was amazing but their Hell in a Cell match in my opinion was even better.

    The Heidenreich and Undertaker Feud was probably one of my favorite. Although the JBL vs. Undertaker Randy Orton vs. Undertaker fuses ran a little longer and maybe gained more television ratings... The Undertaker Heidenreich fuse what's the most comedic. There's nothing like crazy versus deadly!

    Definitely one of my fav years from Taker, it's such a shame Paul Bearer was written off of tv due to complications from his surgery he had to lose weight. Imagine if that didn't happen, how taker and bearer would have been from 2004-2007 or 08

    I was a big fan of Orton during this era. I wanted Orton to break the streak but that did not happen. Since then, I never again rooted against the Undertaker Wrestlemania streak until it was finally broken by Brock Lesnar. But In WrestleMania streak or no streak, I always favor the Undertaker.

    The Mania 20 and 21 builds were the only times I had any interest in the revived Deadman stuff. His various gimmick matches and feuds all felt like the same old predictable routine and I found myself bored of it even after the JBL rivalry. Either the writers just weren't very creative or Taker would have worked better as a monster heel at the time. I was hoping Orton would have ended the streak at WM21 but I suppose it worked out better as a longer rivalry.

    The best part of the Taker vs JBL feud was the return of Viscera and Gangrel. I thought those two would stick together and become a tag team. However, the feud with Orton was even better. The hell in a cell match between the two was a great way to end their rivalry.

    I’ve heard that the idea of Orton ending the streak was kicked around, but Randy didn’t want to be the one to do it. This WrestleMania match was the first time I thought the streak was in jeopardy. When he reversed the choke slam I thought it was over.

    The "mini superstar" fetish by Vince, Pat, Bruce, or whomever in creative was already played out with Dink in '94. It was sad that they kept doing this for decades. Taker may have looked at his time with Giant Gonzales fondly after suffering through his feud with Heidenreich. The build up segments with Taker, Randy & Bob were awesome leading up to WM21.
