Career

Before his then-WWF debut with his brother Jeff, Matt was trained by former wrestler Dory Funk, Jr. Before signing with the WWF, Matt and Jeff ran their own wrestling promotion, OMEGA Wrestling, in which Matt competed under the name High Voltage. Other wrestlers associated with OMEGA include Christopher Daniels, the future Lita, Shannon Moore and The Hurricane. Once signed, the brothers formed an acrobatic tag team and became known as The Hardy Boyz. Although they had several managers during their tag team run, the five-time WWE Tag Team Champions were most prominently accompanied to the ring by Lita. The three together became known as “Team Extreme.” Hardy and Lita were an off-screen couple for six years, and used to share a home in North Carolina. Their romance came to an end in late February 2005 (according to Matt’s official website) due to Lita’s affair with fellow WWE superstar Edge.

 

On the August 12, 2002 episode of RAW, Matt turned against Jeff, pitting him in a match against Rob Van Dam. A short time later he joined the SmackDown! roster. On the October 3, 2002 edition of the show, Matt used outside interference from Brock Lesnar to defeat The Undertaker.

 

Now dubbed “Matt Hardy – Version 1.0,” and with his MF’er (Mattitude Follower) Shannon Moore in his corner, Matt defeated Billy Kidman at the 2003 No Way Out in Montreal, Quebec to claim the WWE Cruiserweight Championship and, at WrestleMania XIX in Seattle, defended it against Rey Mysterio. The Mattitude stable also included the late Crash Holly as Shannon Moore’s “Moore-on.” Matt later disbanded the stable and returned to RAW in order to be able to travel and work with then-girlfriend, Lita. He would later turn face once more by engaging in a rivarly with then heel, Kane.

 

Release from WWE

Along with his friend Rhyno, Matt Hardy was released by WWE on April 11, 2005. Matt’s release was officially due to his public handling of the Lita/Edge incident (posting disparaging remarks towards Edge on his website) his release was confirmed publicly by WWE. It has also been speculated that Hardy was going to confront Edge during a RAW episode, but these claims are largely unfounded. However, it was further speculated that Hardy was released because management did not generally like him, and an excuse to fire him had been presented. In fact, Triple H, allegedly said of Hardy’s release: “he never drew money anyway.” Hardy countered this statement in an online interview stating that he and his brother Jeff, as the Hardy Boyz, had been top sellers of merchandise.

 

It should be noted that some people believed that Hardy’s release (and subsequent rehiring) was part of an elaborate work. The WWE frequently referenced the Hardy situation on televised broadcasts, whereas normally they would not acknowledge real-life situations which reflected badly on the WWE onscreen. Given Matt’s vitriolic interviews and the fact that Edge’s wife accused him of steroid abuse, this seems possible, but it remains uncertain. Since Matt has now been re-hired by WWE, his comments could have been partially or completely worked.

 

Matt Hardy released two character promotional vignettes, that he was planning to use before he was offered a new contract by WWE. Hardy called himself The Angelic Diablo with the tagline “the scar will become a symbol” in reference to the way in which he has been treated by Lita and WWE.

 

Return to WWE

On the June 20 edition of RAW, during the storyline wedding of Edge and Lita, Matt Hardy’s entrance music and video were played when the priest asked if anyone had a reason why the wedding should not go on. Moments later, it was revealed as a joke played by Edge and Lita. On the July 11 episode of RAW, Matt Hardy made his return, attacking Edge as he made his way to the ring for his match against Kane and calling him out by his real name (Adam). On the July 14th edition of WWE’s webcast Byte This!, which featured Lita as its guest, one of the callers was Matt himself. The two engaged in a huge argument, believed to have been a complete shoot, which led to Lita walking off the set. It has been confirmed that Matt reached a verbal agreement with WWE return to the promotion in early June, giving up the chance to sign a contract with TNA, where he would likely have reformed the Hardy Boyz with Jeff. His new WWE contract is rumored to be both longer and far more lucrative than his old contract.

 

Matt appeared at a scheduled Ring Of Honor event on July 16 in Woodbridge, Connecticut where he defeated Christopher Daniels via submission. Hardy also cut a brief promo where he continued in full ‘worked shoot’ mode, attacking WWE and John Laurinaitis. Following his official return to WWE, Hardy was met with a backlash which involved him getting booed out of the arena at an ROH event following a match with Homicide, which Hardy won. His final ROH appearance happened the day after this event, where he lost to Roderick Strong.

 

It was recently confirmed through a TNA press release that Matt Hardy will not be appearing at any of their future shows, including their 17 July pay-per-view No Surrender. There was previously heavy speculation that Hardy would make a run-in at the event.

 

On July 18, Matt Hardy again attacked Edge, this time before his steel cage match with Kane, before Matt could be handcuffed, however, he managed to escape and left through the crowd.

 

Seven days later on RAW, Matt Hardy ambushed Edge yet again, this time after a stretcher match with Kane, which Edge had won. Matt, however, was quickly restrained by security.

 

On August 1, Vince McMahon came out on RAW and officially acknowledged Hardy’s return to WWE, adding that Hardy would face Edge at the upcoming SummerSlam pay-per-view. On August 8, Matt Hardy made his in ring return, defeating Gene Snitsky on RAW. Seconds after the Victory, Matt was attacked by Edge and as he was being carried backstage, Matt counterattacked Edge in a locker room.

 

On August 21, 2005, at SummerSlam, Matt Hardy and Edge faced each other in a battle which was hardly considered a wrestling match but an all-out brawl calling the “Kill or Be Killed” Match. The match wound up coming to a premature end when Edge dropped Hardy onto the top of a ring-post, causing him to bleed and eventually leading to the referee ending the match on the grounds that Hardy couldn’t continue. Edge was declared the winner.

 

On August 22, 2005, Matt Hardy had a match against Rob Conway. While this match was running, Edge and Lita were sitting on the commentator’s desk trying to distract him. Edge was a guest commentator. Conway defeated Matt and then Edge came over with a smiling Lita to attack Matt and then put his head in between the steel steps and the ring post and kicked it causing Matt to stay practically paralyzed.

 

On August 29, Matt Hardy and Edge once again faced off on RAW in a Street Fight which saw the two superstars take it to each other like never before. Steel chairs, a ladder, steel ring steps, a singapore cane, if it wasn’t glued down, it became a weapon. The match went back and forth, and eventually wound up on the stage near the Titantron. As Matt was about to powerbomb Lita off the stage in retribution for her distracting him, Edge intervened, and the two of them tried to use their finishing moves on each other but failed. Matt nailed Edge with the Side Effect, but the two of them went flying off the stage onto electrical equipment. They were then carted off by EMT’s to receive medical attention for possible broken necks. After being held over night, both Edge and Matt Hardy were let go. No serious damage took place, though they were physically bruised and battered.

Singles competition

On the July 6 edition of SmackDown!, Matt Hardy won a non-title match against Montel Vontavious Porter (MVP), which resulted in a feud between the two. Hardy was unable to defeat MVP at The Great American Bash for the WWE United States Championship. MVP then claimed that he was “better than Hardy at everything”, which led to a series of contests between Hardy and MVP, such as a basketball game, an arm wrestling contest, and a chess match which MVP “sneezed” on and ruined when Matt put him in check. MVP challenged Hardy to a boxing match at Saturday Night’s Main Event, however MVP was legitimately diagnosed with the heart condition Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome. Since MVP was unable to compete, Hardy faced his replacement, former world champion boxer, Evander Holyfield. The match ended in a no-contest after MVP entered the ring to verbally abuse Holyfield, who then knocked him out. MVP also challenged Matt to a beer drinking contest at SummerSlam, but as revenge for what happened at SNME, Hardy substituted Stone Cold Steve Austin who simply stunned MVP then kept drinking.

After a segment involving MVP inadvertently choosing Hardy as his tag-team partner, Theodore Long promptly set up a match against Deuce ‘N Domino for the WWE Tag Team Championship which the duo were able to win, therefore setting up Matt’s first reign as WWE Tag Team Champion. It is the first time Hardy has held a Tag Team championship with someone other than his younger brother Jeff. Hardy and MVP retained the titles at the Unforgiven PPV in a rematch against former champions Deuce ‘N Domino.

Biography of Eddie Guerrero

Eduardo Gory Guerrero Llanes (October 9, 1967 — November 13, 2005) better known as Eddie Guerrero, was a Mexican-American professional wrestler born into a legendary Mexican wrestling family. He had a distinguished career, working for every major professional wrestling promotion in the United States, Extreme Championship Wrestling, World Championship Wrestling and most famously in World Wrestling Entertainment.

Guerrero’s in-ring character was that of a crafty, resourceful wrestler who would do anything to win a match. His famous mantra became “Cheat to win”. Despite being a heel for much of his career, he became popular in and outside the ring. Another one of his famous sayings was “I Lie! I Cheat! I Steal!” He partly uses this phrase in his book “Stealing Life, Cheating Death”.

Throughout his career, Guerrero encountered various substance abuse problems outside of wrestling, including alcoholism and an addiction to pain killers. His problems outside of the ring were sometimes integrated into his story lines. Notwithstanding these issues, he won numerous titles during his career, including the WWE Championship. He was also posthumously inducted into the Hall of Fame.

Mini Biography

One of the great Hispanic wrestlers, Eddie Guerrero grew up part of the famous wrestling family: The Guerreros. His father Gory Guerrero became a star in the U.S., an icon in Texas and a legend in Mexico. Eddie’s brothers, Hector, Amadno and Chavo, Sr. also became wrestlers. Both Hector and Amando gain success, but only in the Indie federations, and not much success as their father or other two brothers had gained in the majors. Eddie’s nephew, Chavo Guerro, Jr., son of Chavo, Sr., also became a wrestler (Chavo, Jr. was only three years younger than his uncle). Eddie was also uncle of Enrique Llanes and cousin of Javier Llanes, who are popular wrestlers in Mexico.

Eddie had wrestling since the 1989. He really made his name in the now-defunct ECW (Extreme championship Wrestling) by winning the ECW Ecxtreme Championship Wrerstling) TV Title against Dean Simon (aka Dean Malenko). Eddie also made his name later that year in now-defunct WCW (World Championship Wrestling) to win the Cruiserweight Championship by defeating Chris Jericho. Also while in the company, he formed Latino World Order (A playoff to Hulk Hogan’s (Hollywood Hogan at the time)stable, New World Order).

The stable included popular Latino wrestler Rey Mysterio, Jr. (Oscar Gutierrez), La Parka (Adolfo Tapia Ibarra), Psychosis (Dionicio Castellanos) and Juventud Guerrera (Eduardo Annibal Gonzalez Hernandez).

When Eddie came to the WWE, he was a heel, and immediately gained fame when he was part of the Radicalz, with Perry Saturn, Dean Malenko and long time friend of fifteen years, Chris Benoit. In recent years, he and and his nephew Chavo, Jr. began a tag team called Los Guerreros and won the WWE Tag Team titles on Smackdown! against Team Angle (Charlie Haas and Shelton Benjamin). After this stint, Eddie Guerrero went on to win the WWE Championhip (His first and only time) at No Way Out in 2004 against Brock Lesnar. He lost the title to John “Bradshaw” Layfield four months later at the Great American Bash in a Texas Bull Rope Match.

Recently, wrestling fans and the people of the WWE mourn of the lost of Eddie when he was found by his nephew, Chavo Jr. (who back then known as Kerwin White) on a Sunday morning in November, 2005. The result of his death was most likely been caused by his problems in the past: Drugs and alcohol.

Career

Mexico

Gutierrez is a lucha libre luchador as is his uncle and trainer, Rey Misterio, Sr. He debuted as a wrestler in April 1989 at the age of 14 in Tijuana, Mexico. He was too young to wrestle in the United States, as athletic commissions would not give him a license. Technically, he was also underage in Mexico, but enforcement was generally low. In Mexico, using the stage name Colibri (hummingbird in Spanish), he began a feud with another luchador, Psicosis (who was also trained by Rey Misterio, Sr.). This feud lasted several years even after Gutierrez’s career moved to the U.S. When he turned 18, his uncle allowed him to use the ring name “Rey Misterio, Jr.” Gutierrez later changed the spelling to “Rey Mysterio, Jr.” and eventually dropped the “Junior”. In Asistencia Asesoría y Administración (AAA) he feuded with Juventud Guerrera which included a tag match with Guiterrez & Misterio, Sr. versus Juventud and his father, Fuerza Guerrera.

Extreme Championship Wrestling

In 1995 he defeated Psicosis during their debut match on Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW). This match was their first real impact in American professional wrestling, outside of the World Championship Wrestling (WCW)-promoted When Worlds Collide pay-per-view (PPV). Their feud stopped for a while after a Mexican Death Match in November 1995 at the ECW Arena in Philadelphia. Mysterio also appeared at the both One Night Stand], reunion shows, defeating Psicosis at the first and having a match with Sabu at the second which went to a no contest.

World Championship Wrestling

After leaving ECW, Rey went on to gain fame in WCW, where he was the main wrestler to kickstart the new “Cruiserweight Revolution” in the United States in the late ’90’s. WCW ran an angle which promoted Rey as an “underdog”–he had a string of singles victories against behemoths such as Bam Bam Bigelow and Kevin Nash. His last name was changed to ‘Mysterio’ to be further marketed as a ‘Mystery man.’ In WCW, he had many famous matches with Ultimo Dragon, Dean Malenko, Psychosis, Eddie Guerrero, and Juventud Guerrera. He won the WCW Cruiserweight title five times (and 3 more in the WWE). In 1998, Rey was asked (and booked) to lose a match where the wager was Rey’s trademark mask. The Lucha Libre community was offended by this move (this lasted until WCW folded), because of the tradition of luchadors keeping their mask’s on. During his run in WCW, Mysterio was one of the company’s most popular superstars due to his high-flying, amazing, luchador style, how he always interacted with the fans, and his own personality, which was displayed in his clothing (on and off the ring), music, and approach. However, despite his immense popularity, WCW President Eric Bischoff refused to give Mysterio a shot at the WCW World Championship due to his being “too small” and “unmarketable.” Therefore, he was booked to lose his mask in a match. He would lose his mask and go on in the Filthy Animalz stable, winning the WCW Cruiserweight Tag Team Titles with Billy Kidman at the final WCW Monday Nitro.

World Wrestling Entertainment

In 2002, Rey signed with WWE, but was asked to wear the mask again. In Mexico, one could be fined or even have their license suspended in lucha libre by the Box y Lucha Commission for this; there, once a wrestler loses his mask, he cannot regain it. In deference to this tradition, Mysterio continues to not wear a mask when performing in Mexico. This includes non-wrestling appearances in the Rey Mysterio: 619 DVD produced by WWE, although he wore a mask on the recent tour in Mexico on January 1 and January 20, 2006.

Rey Mysterio began his WWE career on SmackDown! as a babyface in a feud with Kurt Angle. Rey later teamed up with Edge to win the WWE Tag Team Championship but after the team lost the titles they soon stopped tagging together.

Rey challenged WWE Cruiserweight champion Matt Hardy at WrestleMania XIX in Seattle, but was unsuccessful after numerous interferences by Shannon Moore. Mysterio finally beat Hardy for the title in an emotional match broadcasted on June 3rd in his hometown. He later lost the title to Tajiri.

Rey later began to feud with Chavo Guerrero, Jr. and his father, again over the WWE Cruiserweight Championship. During this time, Mysterio teamed on occasion with Rob Van Dam, or Spike Dudley to face off against the Dudley Boyz. However, while Rey Mysterio was Cruiserweight Champion, Spike Dudley turned heel and joined with the other Dudleys before soon taking the Cruiserweight title from Mysterio.

Rey continued to team with Rob Van Dam, and before long the team was able to take the WWE Tag Team Championship from Kenzo Suzuki and Rene Dupree. However, RVD became injured and Rey soon lost the titles to The Basham Brothers.

Relationship with Eddie Guerrero

On February 20, 2005, Rey won his third WWE Tag-Team Championship with Eddie Guerrero after defeating Doug Basham and Danny Basham (a.k.a The Basham Brothers) at WWE No Way Out 2005. However, in a departure from traditional booking, the new champions did not defend their titles at WrestleMania 21 on April 3, 2005, but instead faced one another, with Rey winning. This led to a storyline in which the team broke up and had Guerrero turn heel due to being frustrated by being unable to defeat Mysterio on various occasions.

Guerrero and Rey continued to feud, with Guerrero threatening to reveal a secret he and Rey shared involving Rey’s son, Dominic. Unless Rey deferred to Guerrero’s authority, he threatened to go public with the secret. Guerrero later revealed that he was Dominic’s biological father.

The storyline went that Guerrero knew Rey was having trouble starting his own family, so Guerrero left Dominik with Rey and his wife Angie to raise. In subsequent weeks, Guerrero threatened to take custody of Dominic, even drawing up custody papers and having his lawyer present them to Mysterio. At SummerSlam 2005, Rey defeated Guerrero in a Ladder Match for the custody of Dominic.

Rey then became engaged in a brief feud with John “Bradshaw” Layfield with JBL eventually coming out the victor at No Mercy 2005. Rey also debuted a reggaeton song called Booyaka 619 where he sings along with Mad One in October of that year for new entrance music.

Death of Eddie Guerrero

On November 13, 2005, Eddie Guerrero was found dead in his hotel room in Minneapolis, Minnesota. That same day at a WWE “Super Show” where SmackDown! and RAW were both taped, Mysterio gave an emotional speech about Eddie, and in a show of respect removed his mask (though he put his head down, so no one could see his face). Mysterio went on to defeat Shawn Michaels in an interpromotional match later the same night. After the match, Michaels and Mysterio hugged in the ring and Mysterio pointed up to the sky, crying, in memory of Eddie Guerrero. This began a span of weeks through which Mysterio, along with friends Chris Benoit and Chavo Guerrero, continued to dedicate their victories to Eddie either by word or by using his moves during his matches; Eddie chants continued to follow Rey and Chavo in their matches.

SmackDown! vs RAW

Mysterio participated in the main event of Survivor Series as part of Team SmackDown! along with Randy Orton, (Eddie Guerrero’s replacement) ,Bobby Lashley, Batista and JBL who defeated Team RAW (Shawn Michaels, Kane, Big Show, Carlito, and Chris Masters). On the Tuesday after Survivor Series, Mysterio faced RAW’s giant, Big Show, in a match billed as David vs. Goliath in a SmackDown! Special, taped in Cincinnati, Ohio.

This grudge match, stemming from Mysterio eliminating Big Show at Survivor Series, ended as a “no contest” when Big Show’s tag team partner, Kane, interfered in the match. Mysterio continued to feud with RAW’s World Tag Team Champions, even gaining a tag team partner in then-World Heavyweight Champion Batista who, along with Mysterio, would be set to face RAW’s Big Show and Kane in a tag match at Armageddon.

However, before Armageddon, Batista and Mysterio defeated MNM to become SmackDown!’s new WWE Tag Team Champions in a match they both dedicated to Eddie Guerrero. Now the Tag Team Champions, Mysterio and Batista’s match with Big Show and Kane was billed as Champions vs. Champions. Mysterio and Batista lost this RAW vs SmackDown! encounter when Kane pinned Mysterio after a chokeslam.

On the December 30, 2005 edition of SmackDown!, MNM envoked their rematch clause, defeating Batista and Mysterio, with help from the returning Mark Henry, to regain the WWE Tag-Team Championships. World Champion Batista and Mysterio stayed together as close friends until Batista was put out of action as a result of injury. Batista left SmackDown! and his World Title; pointing out that Mysterio would be a deserving Champion .

Road to WrestleMania

On January 29, 2006 Rey Mysterio competed in the Royal Rumble’s “Royal Rumble match” where he entered in the number 2 position, lasting over an hour in the ring to finally eliminate Randy Orton and win the match. By winning the Royal Rumble match, Mysterio gained a World Heavyweight title shot at that years WrestleMania which would be the first time he competed for a World Title during a pay-per-view event. Also, Mysterio set a Royal Rumble record by lasting over 62 minutes in the match.

Rey dedicated his fight, and his later win at the Royal Rumble to Eddie Guerrero. After his win, he was congratulated by Chris Benoit, Dean Malenko, Chavo Guerrero Jr. and Rob Van Dam – all old and close friends of Eddie Guerrero.

During the February 3, 2006 episode of Smackdown!, an upset Randy Orton interrupted Mysterio’s victory speech to challenge him for his WrestleMania title shot. As Rey looked upward for guidance on this decision Orton verbally attacked him and the memory of Guerrero, saying “Eddie Guerrero isn’t in heaven, he’s ‘down there’– IN HELL!” Mysterio attacked Orton and later accepted the challenge.

The challenge took place at No Way Out with Randy Orton defeating Rey Mysterio while illegally using the ring ropes to aid a pin. Having lost the title shot at WrestleMania 22, Rey cried backstage with a few of Guerrero’s close family. However on a later edition of Smackdown!, the sympathetic SmackDown! General Manager Theodore Long declared the World Title match would include Mysterio, making the match a Triple Threat that would see Rey face off against both Randy Orton and then-World Heavyweight Champion Kurt Angle. Some questioned Long’s decision, namely Orton, who was furious that he would not be the only one challenging for the title at WrestleMania. However, Angle, the champion, didn’t seem to care because he had no qualms about defeating the both of them.

World Heavyweight Champion

At WrestleMania 22 in Chicago, Mysterio became the World Heavyweight Champion by pinning Randy Orton in a Triple Threat Match, following a 619 and a West Coast Pop. San Diego based rock band P.O.D. performed Rey’s theme, “Booyaka 619″, live at WrestleMania. This victory was historic on many levels, as Mysterio became the shortest (5’3”) and lightest (165 lb) world champion in WWE history. He is the third masked wrestler (after Kane and Mankind) and third Hispanic wrestler (after Pedro Morales and Eddie Guerrero) to win a WWE world title. Following this victory, Mysterio was congratulated on the entrance ramp by Chavo Guerrero and Vickie Guerrero, and backstage by his good friend Chris Benoit.

On the April 7, 2006 edition of SmackDown!, Rey Mysterio, who was billed as being an “underdog champion”, made his first successful World Heavyweight Title defense against Randy Orton. Mysterio went on to retain his title in a rematch against Kurt Angle before starting a feud with the United States Champion John “Bradshaw” Layfield.

This feud with JBL saw Mysterio face off against any opponent of JBL’s choosing in the weeks leading up to his title match against Mysterio at WWE Judgement Day 2006. Mysterio was defeated by Mark Henry and squashed by The Great Khali in non-title singles matches before facing RAW’s Kane in a match, that went to a no contest, leading up to the PPV. He retained his title at Judgment Day using a frog splash to win the match. And the next SmackDown Rey faced JBL again, and the World Heavyweight Title was on the line. Beforehand, Mysterio played JBL’s own game from leading up to ‘Judgement Day’ by putting JBL in a title-defense match against Bobby Lashley. JBL lost the US championship which lead him to vow that if he didn’t win his match against Mysterio, he would quit. In the main event, JBL was beating Mysterio in the early going and even thought he had won it by pinning Mysterio. However, the referee then saw Mysterio’s foot on the ropes and cancelled his decision and continued the match. Mysterio won with a 619 and then a springboard legdrop to retain the World Heavyweight Championship and causing JBL to leave Smackdown! once and for all.

Mysterio was defeated by Rob Van Dam at WWE vs. ECW Head to Head on June 7, 2006. Immediately after WWE vs. ECW, WWE.com reported that Paul Heyman approached Mysterio about jumping to ECW. It was announced on the June 9 edition of SmackDown that Rey would stay home, on WWE’s SmackDown!. After that, he would go on to be defeated by Finlay after ECW’s Sabu interfered. After the match, Sabu put Mysterio through a table as SmackDown! went off the air. At One Night Stand, he was met with loud boos from the hostile ECW crowd, who did not like the Smackdown! superstar. Mysterio retained his title after both men were ruled unable to continue following a DDT from Sabu which drove both men through a table.

Mysterio would later defend his title against Mark Henry, he would win the match via DQ when he gave a chair to Henry and he lay on the ground motionless (one of Eddie Guerrero’s signature heel tactics). He would then feud with King Booker after Booker won a Battle Royal to see who would face Mysterio at The Great American Bash for the World Heavyweight Championship.

Mysterio beat King Booker in a single match two days before The Great American Bash when Chavo helped him.

Career Highlights: WWE Champion, World Tag Team Champion, WCW Tag Team Champion, Hardcore Champion, undefeated at WrestleMania (15-0)

WWE Debut: Nov. 22, 1990


The Deadman has overcome every challenge he’s faced in his WWE career en route to becoming one of the the greatest Superstars in WWE history.

From the moment his signature gong fills the air, WWE fans are captivated by Undertaker’s mere presence. The Deadman from Death Valley is usually a man of few words, but can often intimidate even the toughest WWE Superstars with one glance. His somber persona has been a terrifying trademark of WWE for over 15 years, and no list of WWE all-time greats can be considered complete without Undertaker.

At the 1990 Survivor Series, Ted DiBiase introduced Undertaker as the final member of his “Million Dollar Team” for a Classic Survivor Series Match. From the minute he walked through the curtain with manager Brother Love, fans were in awe of the Deadman’s presence.

Undertaker soon left Brother Love in favor of Paul Bearer, and made his WrestleMania debut by defeating Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka in 1991. The Deadman quickly made major waves in WWE, winning the WWE Championship from Hulk Hogan within a year of his debut at the 1991 Survivor Series. Hogan received an immediate rematch a week later, defeating the Deadman to regain the championship and end his undefeated streak.

After defeating former ally Jake “The Snake” Roberts at WrestleMania VIII, Undertaker became a fan favorite and found himself embroiled in a rivalry with manager Harvey Wippleman. Over the next year, Undertaker fought off several of Wippleman’s associates, including a victory over Kamala in the first-ever Casket Match at Survivor Series1992. Wippleman next produced Giant Gonzales, whom Undertaker defeated at WrestleMania IX and SummerSlam 1993.

At the 1994 Royal Rumble, the Deadman met Yokozuna in a Casket Match for the WWE Championship. It took nearly a dozen men to help the 700-pound champion defeat the Deadman, and after the match, Undertaker said he would not rest in peace. Months later, Ted DiBiase claimed that he found Undertaker, but it turned out to be only a look-alike, and the real Deadman defeated his impostor at SummerSlam 1994. Undertaker then got his revenge on Yokozuna, defeating the big man in a Casket Match at the 1994 Survivor Series.1995 saw Undertaker continue to battle Ted DiBiase’s Corporation, who had stolen Paul Bearer’s sacred urn at the Royal Rumble. Undertaker took on and defeated DiBiase’s entire team, including a victory over King Kong Bundy at WrestleMania XI and a Casket Match victory over Kama at SummerSlam.

After a brief rivalry that saw Mabel destroy Undertaker’s face, the Deadman vanquished Mabel in a Casket Match and turned his sights back to the WWE Championship. He took on Bret Hart at the 1996 Royal Rumble, but Diesel’s interference cost the Deadman his chance. After returning the favor to Diesel the next month, Undertaker defeated him at WrestleMania XII for his fifth consecutive WrestleMania victory.

Later in 1996, Paul Bearer turned on the Deadman, casting his lot with Mankind. Following Mankind’s Boiler Room Brawl victory over Undertaker at SummerSlam, Bearer handed the sacred urn to Mankind, who nailed the Deadman in the head with it. Undertaker finally got revenge by defeating Mankind at the 1996 Survivor Series; while their rivalry was not yet over, the Deadman turned away to focus on becoming champion once again.

After narrowly losing a Final Four Match for the WWE Championship in February 1997, Undertaker finally got another chance at WrestleMania 13. There, the Deadman defeated Sid to win the gold for a second time, also pushing his WrestleMania record to 6-0. Throughout the summer of 1997, the Deadman defeated the likes of Steve Austin, Vader and Mankind before an errant chairshot from guest referee Shawn Michaels allowed Bret hart to defeat the Deadman for the gold at SummerSlam.

Following SummerSlam, Undertaker began stalking Michaels, leading up to the first-ever Hell in a Cell Match at Badd Blood. As it seemed that the Deadman was set to win the match, Kane made his WWE Debut, attacking his brother and costing him the match. Undertaker originally refused to fight his brother, but changed his mind at the 1998 Royal Rumble.

That night, Kane helped Michaels defeat Undertaker in a Casket Match, then wheeled the casket into the entranceway and set it on fire. Undertaker returned a month later to challenge Kane to a match at WrestleMania XIV. It took three Tombstone Piledrivers, but Undertaker turned back his brother that night to keep his WrestleMania record intact.

That summer, Kane & Undertaker continued to battle, and the Big Red Machine found an ally in his brother’s arch-nemesis, Mankind. Mankind battled Undertaker in an infamous Hell in a Cell Match at King of the Ring 1998; the Deadman won the match, which provided one of the most breathtaking visuals in WWE history when he threw Mankind off the Cell through the Spanish announcers’ table nearly 20 feet below.

A month later, Undertaker teamed with Stone Cold to defeat Kane & Mankind for the World Tag Team Championship. They would lose the gold shortly thereafter, and Undertaker would lose to Austin at SummerSlam 1998 in a classic battle for the WWE Championship.

After SummerSlam, Undertaker reconciled with Kane, and the two simultaneously pinned Austin in September during a WWE Championship Match. The controversy surrounding the championship led to the Deadly Game Tournament at Survivor Series; Undertaker beat Kane in the first round but later lost to The Rock, who went on to win the tournament and his first WWE Championship.

Early in 1999, Undertaker recruited the Acolytes, The Brood, Mideon & Viscera to form the Ministry of Darkness. They targeted Mr. McMahon and the Corporation, with Stephanie McMahon being Undertaker’s ultimate target. The war between Undertaker and the McMahons led to the Deadman defeating Big Boss Man in a Hell in a Cell Match at WrestleMania XV; soon after, the two groups patched up their differences and merged into one super group, and Undertaker defeated Steve Austin for his third WWE Championship in May 1999.

Undertaker later lost the gold back to Austin, and after that loss, he shifted his focus. The Deadman formed a team with Big Show, and together they captured the World Tag Team Championship twice in the fall of 1999. Later that fall, Undertaker refused to participate in a Casket Match against Triple H, leading to Mr. McMahon suspending the Deadman indefinitely.

He would not return until May 2000, when he began a rivalry with then-WWE Champion Triple H and D-Generation X. Reconciling once again with Kane, Undertaker ran roughshod over WWE, nearly winning the WWE Championship on several occasions. That December, Undertaker teamed up with The Rock to win the World Tag Team Championship, a reign that would last only three days.

Despite that loss, Undertaker went on to have a big year in 2001 After defeating Triple H at WrestleMania X-Seven to improve his WrestleMania record to 9-0, the Deadman teamed with Kane to win the World Tag Team Championship that April. Undertaker also helped Mr. McMahon fight off the ECW/WCW Alliance’s invasion, and Undertaker & Kane won both the WCW and World Tag Team Championships that summer. Undertaker was also on the victorious WWE team at Survivor Series, putting the Alliance out of business.

Following that win, however, his attitude began to change. He won the Hardcore Championship from Rob Van Dam at Vengeance in December, then began a rivalry with Ric Flair after Flair cost him a match at No Way Out. The Deadman defeated Flair in a No-Disqualification Match at WrestleMania X8, marking the Deadman’s 10th consecutive WrestleMania win. Regardless, Flair chose Undertaker as RAW’s No. 1 pick in the brand extension draft that April, and the Deadman paid immediate dividends by defeating Hulk Hogan for his fourth WWE Championship at Judgment Day.

After losing the gold at Vengeance, Undertaker became a fan favorite once again, taking on the Un-Americans. After defeating Test at SummerSlam, the Deadman moved from RAW to SmackDown, where he became a top contender to WWE Champion Brock Lesnar. After a bitter rivalry, Lesnar finally defeated the Deadman at No Mercy in a bloody Hell in a Cell Match, and the two put their differences aside. That same week, Undertaker was injured by Big Show, putting him out of action for three months.

The Deadman returned at the 2003 Royal Rumble, where he entered No. 30 but was the last man eliminated by eventual winner Lesnar. Undertaker set his sights on Big Show, and at WrestleMania XIX, he defeated Show & A-Train in a Handicap Match to get retribution. The rivalry between Big Show & Undertaker continued throughout 2003, with Lesnar and Kurt Angle once again getting involved during the summer. Finally, Mr. McMahon got involved, helping Lesnar defeat the Deadman at No Mercy.

Undertaker then challenged McMahon to a Buried Alive Match at Survivor Series. McMahon was victorious with help from RAW Superstar Kane, who attacked his brother to help the WWE Chairman bury him alive. Undertaker would not be seen again for four months, but made his presence felt wherever Kane went. After two months of mind games, Paul Bearer and the Deadman returned at WrestleMania XX to defeat Kane for a second time at WrestleMania in an inter-promotional match.

Following his return to SmackDown, Undertaker took on all comers, but was forced to leave Paul Bearer behind. Eventually, he found himself as the top contender to WWE Champion JBL, and the two met at SummerSlam. JBL won the match by disqualification, but the rivalry was only beginning.

Undertaker stalked JBL for months, but was unable to win the gold. Heidenreich’s interference helped JBL win a Last Ride Match at No Mercy; because of this, the Deadman shifted his focus to go after Heidenreich instead. He would defeat Heidenreich at Survivor Series, then once again in a Casket Match at the 2005 Royal Rumble.

It was around that time that RAW’s Randy Orton was looking to do something big at WrestleMania. After much deliberation, the Legend Killer decided to try to slay the biggest Legend of them all, challenging the Deadman to a match at WrestleMania. Despite the best efforts of both Orton and father Cowboy Bob, the Deadman defeated the Legend Killer to make it a perfect 13-0 at WrestleMania, injuring Orton’s shoulder in the process.

Orton would strike back in June, costing Undertaker a match with JBL after being drafted to SmackDown earlier in the night. Orton then helped JBL defeat Undertaker again in July on SmackDown, and the Legend Killer and the Deadman were set for another showdown at SummerSlam. This time, Cowboy Bob’s interference helped Randy defeat Undertaker, but the war was far from over.

Undertaker haunted the Ortons throughout the fall, leading to a Handicap Casket Match at No Mercy. Randy & Cowboy Bob were victorious, but after the match, they lit the casket containing Undertaker on fire, seemingly burning him alive. It was not to be, however, and after Orton was the sole survivor to help Team SmackDown defeat Team RAW at Survivor Series, Undertaker made his triumphant return.

Two nights later at the SmackDown special, Orton tried to take out the Deadman again, driving him through the stage as he clung to the back of a lowrider. It didn’t work, and the two were put into a Hell in a Cell Match at Armageddon. Undertaker finally got revenge that night, defeating the Legend Killer with a Tombstone Piledriver.

At the 2006 Royal Rumble, the Deadman set his sights back on the World Heavyweight Championship, challenging Kurt Angle for the gold after Angle defeated Mark Henry. The match was set for No Way Out, and after a classic encounter, the champion was able to pin the Deadman to retain the championship. Undertaker said he wasn’t done with Angle yet, and a rematch was set two weeks later on Friday Night SmackDown.

During the match, it looked like the Deadman had the gold won once again when Mark Henry interfered. The World’s Strongest Man viciously attacked Undertaker, splashing him through the announcers’ table at ringside. The following week, after Henry & Randy Orton faced Angle & Rey Mysterio, the Deadman’s voice filled the air. He challenged the World’s Strongest Man to a Casket Match, which Henry readily accepted immediately. The next week, Henry called Undertaker out to meet face to face at Saturday Night’s Main Event; the Deadman responded, attacking Henry and giving Daivari a Tombstone onto the lid of a casket.

Finally, Undertaker defeated Henry in the Casket Match at WrestleMania 22 to improve his perfect WrestleMania record to 14-0. Henry requested a rematch the following week on Friday night SmackDown, but the match served only as a backdrop for an attack on the Deadman by Henry’s manager, Daivari and his new protege The Great Khali.

Khali came into the ring and nailed Undertaker with a vicious chop, leaving the Deadman down in the ring. For weeks, the Deadman was not seen or heard from, leading Daivari to claim that his spirit had been broken and he was afraid. Finally, Theodore Long announced that the Deadman had challenged Khali to a match at Judgment Day; Khali accepted, and the confrontation was finally set.

Coming into Judgment Day, Undertaker had successfully turned back every other challenger he had faced in his long and illustrious WWE career. However, the 7 foot 3, 420 pound Great Khali proved to be an exception to the rule. Never before was Undertaker manhandled in such a fashion as he was by the threatening Khali. Daivari’s new monster disposed of the Phenom with ease, leaving all to wonder if Undertaker will ever be heard from again. He turned down an invitation to be on Piper’s Pit on the June 2 edition of Friday Night SmackDown, furthering speculation that there may be truth to Daivari’s earlier claim that the Deadman’s spirit has been broken by Khali.

At The Great American Bash, the Phenom survived the most fiendish, barbaric match in WWE history: the Punjabi Prison Match. Undertaker was scheduled to collide in the Prison with his nemesis, Khali, until SmackDown GM Teddy Long replaced Khali with Big Show following a backstage ambush by both Show and Khali. After being dominated for weeks by The Great Khali, the Deadman rose to the occasion and prevailed in a match never before seen in the Western world.

The McMahon DVD cover featuring a split personality of Vince and Mr. McMahon

Vincent Kennedy McMahon (born August 24, 1945), better known as Vince McMahon or Mr. McMahon, is an American wrestling promoter, wrestler, and film producer. He is the Chairman of the WWE Board of Directors and majority shareholder of World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc. (WWE).

Vince spent the majority of his childhood in rural North Carolina living with his mother and a string of stepfathers.[citation needed] He also grew up in Canton, Ohio. He did not meet his father (Vincent J. McMahon) until his teen years, and at that point became interested in following his father’s footsteps in the wrestling business.

Following his graduation from East Carolina University and a nondescript career as a traveling salesman, Vince went to work for his father in the then World Wide Wrestling Federation.

Professional career

World Wide Wrestling Federation (1971-1979)

Early in his wrestling career, Vince was the in-ring announcer. He later became the play-by-play announcer for television matches after he replaced Ray Morgan in 1971, a role he regularly maintained until November 1997.

Throughout the 1970s, McMahon became the prominent force in his father’s company and pushed for the renaming of the company to the World Wrestling Federation (WWF). The young McMahon was also behind the famous Muhammad Ali vs. Antonio Inoki match of 1976, the year that his daughter Stephanie McMahon was born.

In 1982, Vince bought out his father’s Capitol Sports company, renaming it Titan Sports. He expanded the company nationally by promoting in areas outside of the company’s Northeast U.S. stomping grounds and by signing talent from other companies.

The pinnacle of this national expansion experiment came in 1985 with the very first WrestleMania in Madison Square Garden, which aired on closed circuit TV throughout the U.S. This led to what has been considered a “Golden Age of Wrestling” with WWF seeing increased mainstream exposure, TV ratings, and house show gates all throughout the rest of the decade.

In 1989, McMahon tested the movie producing waters by co-producing the Hulk Hogan vehicle No Holds Barred. In 1990, McMahon again ventured outside of wrestling by founding a bodybuilding company called the World Bodybuilding Federation (WBF).

However, around 1992, things began to change. The WBF went out of business as alleged steroid abuse among both McMahon’s wrestlers and bodybuilders came under scrutiny. By 1994, things were slowly turning in WCW’s favor, especially when they signed Hulk Hogan.

McMahon was put on trial in 1994, accused of distributing steroids to his wrestlers. As a legal move, his wife Linda was made CEO of the WWF during the trial. He was acquitted of all charges though he admitted to taking steroids himself in the 1980s. The prosecution made Hulk Hogan its star witness, and his testimony in the trial severely damaged the two’s friendship, even though Hogan’s testimony defended McMahon. After Hogan’s testimony, McMahon went before the media declaring that he wished that Hogan had not lied about him on the witness stand.

Other business

In 2000, McMahon again ventured outside the world of professional wrestling by launching the XFL. The league eventually began in February 2001 with McMahon making an appearance at the first game. The league, however, fared worse than the WBF and quickly folded. Also in 2001, McMahon acquired World Championship Wrestling and later Extreme Championship Wrestling in bankruptcy court, leaving McMahon and the World Wrestling Federation as the only major wrestling promotion left in North America.

In 2003, after being forced to rename the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) to World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) in 2002, McMahon again ventured outside the wrestling ring and launched WWE Films.

Mr. McMahon is the on-screen character of Vince McMahon, with the gimmick of an often egotistical heel boss. The character spawned from the real-life hatred many wrestling fans had for McMahon following the Montreal screwjob, the 1997 Survivor Series incident with Bret Hart.

Although Mr. McMahon was loathed for his actions as the evil owner of the WWF, the character proved to be one of the most memorable heels in professional wrestling history. Despite Mr. McMahon’s evil intentions, many fans continue to respect the character for the history it’s had, particularly with “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, who was Mr. McMahon’s nemesis at the character’s apex. Much to Mr. McMahon’s horror, “Stone Cold” was announced to return and was the special guest referee at the “Battle of the Billionaires” match at WrestleMania 23.

Several other gimmicks have become integral parts of McMahon’s on-camera persona, such as his throaty exclamation of “You’re fired!”, and his “power walk” – an over-exaggerated strut towards the ring, swinging his arms and bobbing his head from side to side in a cocky manner. This is usually accompanied by a comment from Jim Ross, such as “There’s only one man I know that walks like that.” The power walk is used to get a reaction out of the audience (especially when he’s a heel), but it also provides comic relief as well. WWE Superstar John Cena had joked on the RAW Exposed special that aired before WWE Homecoming, that Vince “somehow walks like he’s got a broomstick shoved up in his ass”. According to Jim Cornette, the power walk was inspired by one of Vince McMahon’s favorite wrestlers as a child, Dr. Jerry Graham. However, The Fabulous Moolah claims in her autobiography that the original Nature Boy, Buddy Rogers, was the inspiration.

After winning the 1999 Royal Rumble (by staying outside the ring for most of the match and then tossing Stone Cold over the top rope), Vince defeated Triple H for the WWF Championship on September 14, 1999. This was later named the 5th most memorable moment in SmackDown! history. On September 20, 1999, Vince vacated the title and put it on the line in a Six-Pack Challenge match at Unforgiven 1999, where Triple H regained it.

Due to Bobby Lashley’s role in the feud between Vince and Donald Trump at WrestleMania 23, Vince forced Lashley to defend the ECW World Championship at Backlash 2007 in a 3-on-1 Handicap Match against Vince, Shane McMahon, and Umaga. Vince scored the winning pinfall against Lashley after Shane and Umaga softened him up. At Judgment Day 2007, Lashley defeated Shane after a dominator, but Vince later announced that he was still ECW World Champion because he was not pinned by Lashley. He lost the championship one month later at One Night Stand to Lashley.

Triple H Biography:
It takes a lot to hate someone so much who is so damn good, but Hunter Hearst-Helmsley, better known simply as Triple H has accomplished just that. Despite being a highly celebrated 10-time world champion, there is no denying the pure diabolical evil that is Triple H. A strategic mastermind, Triple H is considered by the industry as a whole as the most resilient champion in the history of WWE, defending his championship against anyone, not always by choice, but seemingly coming out on top more often than not using his pedigree in-ring skills, wit and ingenious schemes, swerving all his adversaries with plots opponents simply don’t see coming.

Indeed, Triple H plays the game perhaps better than anyone else, hence his nickname “The Game” – which he shares with the hit Motorhead song specifically made for Triple H’s ring music. Utilizing a truly intimidating ring entrance to psyche out his adversaries, Triple H’s intensity, shredded muscular physique and reputation alone could strike fear into his opponents before the bell even rings! Of course, Triple H’s imposing in-ring presence differs drastically away from the ring, with “The Game” dressing in dashing custom made suits and a one of a kind Rolex watch around his wrist. There’s no denying that he is just as respected as he is dangerous. Unfortunately, he just happens to be a man full of hate, greed and desire to devour all in his path in regaining the World Heavyweight and WWE Championships.

As his skills as a leader of D-Genration X developed, so did his masterful moves to ensure his continued success, adding “Nature Boy” Ric Flair as an ally and associate. Around this point in time, RAW began to see an influx of new Superstars, leading to the always shrewd Triple H investing in his future by securing two of the hottest prospects on the scene: Batista and Randy Orton. As a four-man clique known as Evolution, the foursome dominated RAW, dined on championship gold, flew $20 million private jets and partied the nights away. This was the best of the best. The elite. They were Evolution.

Unfortunately, Triple H’s greed ultimately nearly consumed him. His need to be the man and ace of Evolution was challenged first by Randy Orton and most recently by Batista, leading to the group self-destructing and Orton and Batista breaking away into Superstars free of Triple H calling the shots for his own best interests instead of theirs.

Recently, Triple H has been engulfed in a bloody war with Batista, seeing Batista defeat and win the World Heavyweight Championship from “The Game” at WrestleMania 21 in Hollywood. Despite this, Triple H has vowed to get Batista and win back his World Heavyweight Championship but unfortunately, Batista was drafted to SmackDown as part of the 2005 Draft Lottery. With a new chapter beginning, the smart money is on “The Game” rising once again to his throne as the WWE Champion as there are few if any who can outsmart or outwrestle Triple H … let alone escape the Pedigree – the proverbial end game for all. – copyright 2005 NBC Universal Entertainment Cable Group.

Mini Biography

John Felix Anthony Cena or better known as John Cena, the WWE superstar was born on 23rd of April 1977 in West Newbury, Massachusetts. When he was in college, he played football. He then continued on to be a bodybuilder and a limousine driver. The 6-foot-1 tall star weighs exactly at 240 pounds and is the reigning champion in WWE.

The Dr. of Thuganomics started training to be a wrestler at Ultimate Pro Wrestling where he also created the character, The Prototype. Cena fist appeared on WWE in a match against Kurt Angle on the 27th of June, 2002 which ended up with him losing.

In 2004, John Cena’s status as a celebrity began to develop. Cena won the United States Championship from Big Show. Not too long later, Cena lost the title but he gained it back soon. Cena then lost the title again to fellow WWE superstar, Carlito. During that time, Cena apparently got stabbed in the kidney by one of Carlito’s bodyguard. This resulted him to stay out of action for a month.

In 2005 and 2006 respectively, Cena has made a couple of feuds. He had a feud with champion John Bradshaw Layfield, manager Eric Bischoff and fellow wrestler Chris Jericho. Cena also made feuds with Edge and Umaga at that time. But even so, some friendships were formed. Cena is said to be friends with Carlito after they won a match with Jeff Hardy against Edge, Randy Orton and Johnny Nitro.

The year 2007 became a big year for Cena as he got involved in a wrestling match with Britney Spears’ ex and rap star, Kevin Federline. John ended up losing that match thanks to some assistance from Umaga to Kevin Federline. Later that night, Cena took revenge by body slamming Kevin Federline backstage. The year 2007 also started pretty well for John Cena as he became the first person to defeat the Samoan Bulldozer, Umaga that year. The Chain Gang Soldier also teamed up with Shaun Michaels defeating the RKO tag team which consists of Randy Orton and Edge. The match ended up with Cena and Michaels winning.

Cena has also made his own name in other talents. He has recently filmed a movie under WWE Films called The Marine which will be set to premiere in March 2007. John is said to be taking some time off soon to act in another movie alongside fellow wrestler, Triple H. Besides that, Cena also released his first album titled ‘You Can’t See Me’ under the WWE label. His entrance theme, ‘My Time Is Now’ can also be found in that album. Other than his trademark moves, Cena also made some trademarks in his fashion. He is mostly seen in the ring with knee-high denim pants and his chain.

Cena graduated from Springfield College, Massachusetts with degrees in exercise physiology and human anatomy. He is the second eldest of five brothers and is said to be a family guy when he is not wrestling. His good friends are fellow wrestlers, John Hennigan and Randy Orton whom he will have to fight with.

John Cena is definitely going to be a big inspiration to all whether in fashion, music or even movies as the activities he has participated in is already more than a normal celebrity’s ability. With all he has done, fans can definitely expect to see more of the WWE champion in the coming future.
