The Undertaker is one of the most iconic characters in professional wrestling history, and his dramatic entrance went a long way in terms of establishing the character.
The length of Taker’s entrance has been a topic of discussion among fans for years, and The Deadman himself recently revealed on Pardon My Take that there were certain times when he would actually extend his entrance.
According to The Undertaker, if he knew he was matched up with an opponent he was going to have a bad match with, he would take his time.
“A lot of times that would just depend on my opponent, okay? Like, if I was working with somebody that was pretty limited or I thought I was gonna have just a real sh**ty match with, I was like, “Man, Imma get my money’s worth out of this entrance.” There were times I would take a little bit of extra time, ’cause I knew the match is gonna be horrible, so I figured I might as well give it to them on the entrance, ’cause they are gonna be disappointed when the bell rings.”
Over the years The Undertaker’s WrestleMania entrances have taken on a life of their own, but this year The Phenom kept things simple.
Taker faced off against AJ Styles in the first ever Boneyard Match, which had a cinematic feel, and instead of his slow, drawn out entrance Taker opted to arrive via motorcycle before burying AJ Styles alive.
