The Undertaker has had many career-defining moments which, in hindsight, might not have been in the best of tastes. Mick Foley flying through the Cell? Good. Facing Giant Gonzalez at WrestleMania 8? Bad. His Cell match with Triple H? Very good. Whatever the Mohammad Hassan deal was? Very, very bad. But one of his most infamous moments came on an episode of Raw from the Attitude Era, and it has been re-visited by his “victim” that night.
The Undertaker created one of the most iconic- and controversial- Attitude Era moments
At the peak of his Lord of Darkness character, The Undertaker had a cult dedicated to him and performed some of the most controversial acts to be seen on TV. He tried to embalm “Stone Cold” Steve Austin and when that didn’t work, he straight up tried to crucify him!
But by far his most controversial moment has to be the “wedding ceremony” segment from an episode of Raw is War from 1999.
The Deadman had abducted Stephanie at the first-ever Backlash PPV and then forced her to become his “bride” in one of the most iconic- and downright creepy-moments in WWE history. Though that kind of content would not fly past WWE’s PG sponsors these days, it does help cement The Phenom’s legacy as one of the most enigmatic characters in wrestling history.
