On November 22, 1990, The Undertaker made his official on-camera debut for WWE at Survivor Series as the mystery partner of 'The Million Dollar Man' Ted DiBiase's team. Dressed in all black complete with a trench coat, black Stetson hat, and boot spats, The Deadman stood true to his nickname by resembling a macabre Western mortician.
Although he was not a surviving member of DiBiase's winning team as he got counted out, The Undertaker left a lasting impression in the match by eliminating the opposing team's Koko B Ware with a Tombstone Piledriver and Dusty Rhodes with a double axehandle from the top turnbuckle. Ever since his debut, The Undertaker has become a legendary figure in WWE and is considered one of the all-time greats.
He has gone through various character changes over the years and has earned various achievements in the company. Taker is a multiple-time world champion, a Royal Rumble winner and for a long time, he had an undefeated streak at WrestleManias. He enjoyed a winning streak of 21 straight victories which began at WrestleMania VII in 1991 by defeating Jimmy Snuka. The Streak came to an end when he was defeated by Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania XXX in 2014.
The Undertaker has also had a lot of memorable moments at WWE's Fall Classic from winning traditional Survivor Series elimination matches to winning championships. The Undertaker made his last Survivor Series appearance in 2015 which marked the 25th anniversary of The Phenom's career at WWE. At the event, he teamed up with Kane, to reunite the Brothers of Destruction, and defeated Bray Wyatt and Luke Harper in a tag team match.
Since today marks the 29th anniversary of The Undertaker's debut, we honor his legacy by looking back at 5 of his best matches at Survivor Series.
