Undertaker celebrates 4th of July with blast from the past ahead of WWE return | WWE | Sport


Undertaker posted an image dating back to the early 2000s showing him holding the American flag over his shoulders when he wrestled in his biker gimmick of the American Badass.

Taker dumped his sinister and dark character in 2000 and exchanged mortician-themed attires and tunes as well as morbid theatrics for rock music, motorcycles and bandanas.

The Deadman’s radical character switch though was received very well from the fans and he went on to form The Brothers of Destruction with Kane and also won the WWE Undisputed Championship from Hulk Hogan in 2002.

The Phenom’s new gimmick though came to an end in 2004 shortly after getting involved in a storyline that saw him getting buried alive by Kane.

The seven-time world champion returned at WrestleMania 20 in his classic Deadman gimmick, dominated The Big Red Machine and never changed again.

Undertaker has yet to retire from professional wrestling even though he is 53 years old but makes very rare appearances in the squared circle.

Many thought his career had come to an end last year at WrestleMania 33 when he lost an emotional bout to Roman Reigns.

The ex-WWE Champion broke character as he laid down his black jacket, gloves and hat in the middle of the ring before saluting the crowd.

However, the former World Heavyweight Champion showed everyone he is not done yet as he returned this year at WrestleMania 34 where he destroyed John Cena in less than three minutes.

The Demon of Death Valley also wrestled at the Greatest Royal Rumble in Saudi Arabia where he beat Rusev in a Casket Match.

He is now set for a huge fight at WWE Super Show-Down on October 6 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in Australia where he will face legendary rival Triple H for the last time ever.
