What is the story behind Undertaker’s death?

In this article, we have mentioned information related to the death of The Undertaker and the reason behind his dismiss.

When it comes to The Undertaker, the 1994 Royal Rumble featured one of the strangest moments in WWE history. That is significant given that the Undertaker has experienced numerous violent, mysterious, and otherworldly incidents throughout his career. But at the 1994 Royal Rumble, the Undertaker not only passed away after losing to Yokozuna, but viewers also saw him leave this world as he flew into the sky following the bout.

This match was simply one of many where Undertaker appeared to be more than just a regular person. Brother Love and later Paul Bearer, who served as Undertaker’s managers, did all of the talking for him when he first appeared in the WWE. He entered the ring and behaved in a zombie-like manner, moving slowly and defying even the strongest punches from the opposing wrestlers. Bearer possessed his urn, which had a magical aura as well and gave Undertaker the ability to refuel whenever he wanted to reenter a match. Throughout his career, Undertaker found value in this urn, and it was used in the 1994 Royal Rumble world title contest.

In the seventh edition of the Royal Rumble, Owen Hart betrayed his brother Bret “The Hitman” Hart. Bret Hart and Lex Luger’s simultaneous falls to the ground as co-winners of the match, which was one of the most contentious moments in Royal Rumble history, brought the night to a close. People still speak about the Undertaker vs. Yokozuna match, even though the major story should be Owen Hart turning on Bret, building to their amazing WrestleMania match. The motivating factors for these two matches’ noteworthy moments were completely dissimilar.

Yokozuna held the title of WWE World Champion going into the 1994 Royal Rumble after defeating Hulk Hogan at King of the Ring and driving him out of the organization. Because of this, WWE began to portray Yokozuna as an unstoppable monster. WWE wanted to have a dream match before he lost his belt to Bret Hart at WrestleMania, even though he wouldn’t do so until then. It was time to pit Undertaker against the unstoppable beast and the immovable force. Nobody could predict who would prevail at the Royal Rumble because both wrestlers possessed the aura of being unbeatable. At the Survivor Series, Undertaker became the first person to ever sit up after shaking off a Banzai Drop on Yokozuna.

At the 1994 Royal Rumble, Yokozuna arrived overcome with fear of the coffin. He displayed terror whenever he was close to it and appeared to have a claustrophobic phobia of getting trapped inside it. But that was the only way the game could finish. One of these wrestlers would ultimately exit as the world champion, while the other would remain within the casket with the lid closed. There was no good match here. A very obese Yokozuna who relied on overwhelming opponents faced off against a wrestler who focused on no-selling harm in the 1990s, Undertaker. In the end, they were generally overbooked and lumbered along, trying to give misery.

Paul Bearer was on Undertaker’s side. Mr. Fuji was on Yokozuna’s side. When the game was over, those two managers were ultimately the ones who entered the picture. Nothing Yokozuna could do would prevent Undertaker from winning, and it appeared as though he was going to win. To assault Undertaker, Mr. Fuji summoned Crush, Bam Bam Bigelow, Great Kabuki, and Genichiro Tenryu; however, they were all repelled by the latter. The true monster here was Undertaker. But at that point, Paul Bearer was defeated and Mr. Fuji won the urn. When Fuji unlocked the urn, green smoke erupted.

According to Prichard, the green smoke represented the release of the Undertaker’s strength and soul. As a result, Undertaker lost all of his invulnerability. Adam Bomb, Jeff Jarrett, Diesel, and The Headshrinkers then attacked him, knocking him out cold, and put him in a coffin. The most talked-about moment of the whole 1994 Royal Rumble PPV was when they forced it down the aisle to the entrance. 

Smoke started to billow out from under the lid of the closed casket as they approached the entryway. In a seemingly amazing moment, the Undertaker emerged from the casket where he had been lying motionless but had promised to return and appeared with his face on the video screen. At that point, the coffin blew apart. Then the Undertaker left his body and rose into the sky, ascending into the Heavens. He took several months off from WWE in reality. Prichard claimed the Undertaker desired a break to recover at home. After that, a fake Undertaker appeared and started fighting until the real Undertaker arrived, at which point the historic Undertaker vs. The Undertaker contest at SummerSlam occurred.
