The Undertaker is one of the most popular WWE Superstars of all time. The Undertaker is unparalleled in terms of duration and longevity. He made his debut at the 1990 Survivor Series, hovering over every Superstar in the ring.
In retrospect, Undertaker’s debut was more than just iconic. The race is on for a superstar who will become the top of the professional wrestling industry.
Most of Undertaker’s brilliance and beyond was his stature. Standing at 10 feet (208 cm) tall, he is considered one of the greatest “big men” in wrestling history. Even during his debut at the 1990 Survivor Series, Undertaker’s incredible height was the first thing that both fans and commentators noticed.
During his career, The Undertaker would win 7 World Championships and 7 Tag Team Championships, along with a reign as a Hardcover Champion. Despite not being in “Grand Slam Champion” territory, Undertaker was considered a major superstar who didn’t need titles to feel important.
It is similar to Jack ‘The Snake’ Roberts, the legend The Undertaker crossed paths with early in his career. However, the big difference is that Undertaker won 15 WWE Championships to Roberts’ zero.
Who are some big men comparable in size to The Undertaker?
While they love Giant Gonzalez and Andre the Giant if they belong in their league, there are many bigger guys in WWE history who resemble The Undertaker.
Kevin Nash (6’10), Kane (7’0), Big Show (7’0) and The Great Khali (7’1) are some of the greats that The Undertaker crossed paths with and one in size. As (or more) were.
The Undertaker belonged to an era of WWE where a superstar’s size was important, especially during big nights. Although it has changed with the likes of Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels, the perception remains (somewhat) in WWE.
If we looked at size, the Undertaker’s brilliance and mystique were unparalleled. He finally retired at Survivor Series 2020 after a 30-year career.
