A highlight of WrestleMania for over two decades, a legend who outlasted mega stars Hulk Hogan, Stone Cold Steve Austin, and Batista, Undertaker: 25 Years of Destruction, retells the legacy of The Dead Man.
Written by Kevin Sullivan, the book has every detail on Undertaker’s WWE career up to his return at WrestleMania 31. His relationship with Paul Bearer, the entire saga with his brother Kane, his bitter rivalries with Mankind, Shawn Michaels, HHH, and many others, are all documented. Every major match, every championship win, and timelines of when, where and against who is featured.
JBL writes a passionate foreword detailing the respect Undertaker has garnered in wrestling and the rite of passage role The Phenom was used in.
The photography is the reason why fans want to own this. Bloody battles, building caskets in a sinister manner, spectacular maneuvers and defining moments in wrestling history are shown in high quality. They are nostalgic to longtime fans and eye-opening to new ones that only heard about the 25 years of Undertaker.
Unfortunately, there is no exclusive writing from The Undertaker himself nor any of his opponents. The book only focuses on the Undertaker you see on TV. There are no backstage stories or any mention of his first marriage, his marriage to Sara or that he is now married to former WWE Diva Michelle McCool. This is not about Mark Calaway’s personal life whatsoever.
