#10 The Undertaker’s worked shoot promo

Undertaker was asked to fight his half-brother Kane

On the Raw after Over The Edge in 1998, the Phenom came out more as Mark Callaway than he did as The Undertaker. He cut a promo about how Vince McMahon gave him opportunities but then after a point the “giving stopped, and it was all taking”. He mentioned that he had two world championship reigns, but they were cut short because Vince McMahon didn’t want him to represent the company.

He also proceeded to emphasize on his loyalty to the company, despite several of their stars leaving to “greener pastures” (read WCW), where they earned more money. While he was at it, he took a jab at Shawn Michaels saying that he didn’t “lose his smile”.

Undertaker then dwelled a bit into Kayfabe and said that the company used his “family history” for ratings. Then he asked for a title shot to which Vince McMahon obliged and announced that he would compete for a Number 1 contender match against his half-brother, Kane. This was clearly a worked shoot but, nonetheless, Undertaker definitely meant a lot of what he said.
