While many pro wrestlers’ entrances on this countdown are recognizable by the first note of their entrance music, that rings true more for our No. 1 above all others. The ominous gong rings out, signaling the arrival of the man from Death Valley, “The Phenom” himself, the Undertaker.
The Undertaker made his WWE debut at the 1990 edition of the Survivor Series and is still making appearances to this day, just recently Tombstone-ing Elias on the Monday Night Raw after WrestleMania 35. The Deadman is timeless, and so is his entrance.
While most would say the Undertaker’s best days in the ring are behind him, people would still line up in 2019 to pay to see one of his matches live for his entrance alone. It is something to experience live and if you haven’t yet, we really suggest you experience it before ‘Taker hangs up the hat for good.
The seven-time World Heavyweight Champion has done absolutely all there is to do in the business and is a sure first-ballot WWE Hall of Famer when he decides it’s time to go in. No one in the history of this sport has had more varied and, frankly, cool special entrances than the Undertaker. He’s risen from graves, summoned lightning, rode to the ring on a motorcycle and summoned the depth of Hell. The Undertaker has the greatest pro wrestling entrance of all time, no question.
