2013

In 2013, Paul Bearer had passed away. Throughout these reviews we have seen how integral Bearer was to the success of the career of the Undertaker. The Undertaker and Kane ended up paying tribute to Bearer, but this emotional moment was interrupted by CM Punk. Punk had won a Fatal Four-Way match to earn an opportunity to end the Undertaker’s Streak. CM Punk and Paul Heyman would mock Bearer further enraging the Undertaker.

At Wrestlemania 29, the Undertaker proved he could still have a fantastic match and CM Punk certainly played a role in the stealing the show. CM Punk demonstrated his respect for the Undertaker by wearing the colours of the Phenom. The Undertaker improved to 21-0 at Wrestlemania.

Fans believed we would not see the Undertaker until the next year’s Wrestlemania but Kane who was a tag team champion with Daniel Bryan enlisted the help of his brother in combating the dominant Shield. The Undertaker’s presence whether as a partner or opponent simply brings out the best of those sharing a ring with him and after the match Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns, and Daniel Bryan all proved they could hang and be main eventers in this new generation of superstars. After a match with Dean Ambrose, the Undertaker was attacked by the Shield and left laying and we not see the Undertaker for the remainder of the year.
