#5 The Undertaker has wrestled in New Japan Pro Wrestling
The Undertaker is one of the few Superstars who have been loyal to WWE. He stayed with the company through thick and thin, playing a major role in re-establishing it as the biggest wrestling promotion in the world during the Monday Night Wars era. It's tough to imagine him wrestling for another major promotion, right?
Turns out, The Undertaker has actually wrestled for New Japan Pro Wrestling. This happened in March 1990, a few months before he made his WWE/WWF debut. He wrestled under the ring name, "Punisher" Dice Morgan, and was a part of an extensive tour that lasted several weeks. The seven-time World Champion worked in tag team matches with the likes of Bam Bam Bigelow and Chris Benoit. He even challenged for the IWGP Tag Team Titles with WWE Hall of Famer, Scott Hall.
