As the daughter of WWE’s owner Vince McMahon, Stephanie McMahon grew up in the wrestling business. She has met many WWE legends, so choosing her favorite was undoubtedly a difficult feat. However, Stephanie has revealed her favorite superstar of all-time, The Undertaker.
The Undertaker Impressed Stephanie
The Undertaker has left a lasting impression with Stephanie McMahon. During an interview with Planeta Wrestling, the Raw commissioner stated:
“A character that’s impressed me the most has to be The Undertaker. I mean he really is. He is the most iconic superstar in WWE history. So I would have to say him.”
“We create these larger-than-life personalities that people can relate to. People can either cheer to see them win or boo to see them lose and that’s what it’s all about. It’s this interactive community that I’m just proud to be a part of.”
The Undertaker Has Beat The All-Time Greats
He is currently enjoying a wrestling career that spans over 28 years. He is a seven-time world champion, and has beaten the likes of Stone Cold Steve Austin, Hulk Hogan, The Rock, and the Heartbreak Kid Shawn Michaels.
His title accomplishments are not the only thing that makes The Undertaker stand out from other superstars who have fought in the squared circle. His sinister gimmick is something quite unique. Other superstars claim that the gimmick would not work for any other superstar, but he ran with it and made it a huge success.
Due to the gimmick he employed for years, The Undertaker has participated in some of the most sinister matches. Hell in a Cell, Inferno Matches, and even Casket Matches are some of the examples. One match even involved the opponent being buried alive.
His unique career has certainly contributed to him becoming an icon, not only in the eyes of Stephanie McMahon, but also in the eyes of the WWE Universe.
Of course, considering his age and the fact he has suffered severe injuries over the years, he only appears in the WWE on a part-time basis. The last time we witnessed a match of The Undertaker was at WWE Crown Jewel, but I very much doubt we have seen the last of him completely.
