Not many WWE Superstars can claim to have a clean victory over The Undertaker
The Undertaker is one of the greatest WWE Superstars of all time. Debuting in 1990, the Phenom dominated the WWE ring for three decades. Very few stars were able to pick up a clean victory over him.
Brock Lesnar infamously defeated The Undertaker at WrestleMania XXX, ending his legendary 21-match undefeated streak at the Grandest Stage of Them All. 14-time world champion Triple H is considered one of The Undertaker’s greatest rivals, having faced him on multiple occasions and also managing to defeat him. Most recently, Roman Reigns defeated the Phenom in the main event of WrestleMania 33, a match and decision that was highly criticized by fans and critics at the time.
