[1998-03-29-WWF-Wrestlemania XIV] The Undertaker vs Kane

Recommended Posts

We cut to the finish with Taker giving Kane a third tombstone and winning the match even though Kane kicks out right at the three count. Bearer grabs a chair after the match and gets slugged down but that allows kane to take Taker out after the match and retain his heat letting the viewer know this feud was far from over.

Last few minutes. Right finish and right post-match too, with Paul Bearer taking a bump and the feud continuing. At this point, there was still too much momentum in the feud to end it. I know it's hard to imagine such a time existed.

I was surprised we didn't get a little more taste of the match, though obviously it wasn't good and is readily available for viewing should anyone choose. I wonder if these two had a good match in them if pitted at the right time in their careers. Taker never seemed great at the monster vs. monster matches, so maybe not.

I remember this being okay-ish, maybe even surprisingly good considering who it was. This has to be the closest we ever got to the Streak being busted before it was the STREAK, right? I recall being surprised that Kane didn't go over here and in retrospect I kind of still am. They do go all-out to protect Kane as much as possible in a clean defeat--it takes three tombstones to (barely) put him down and he gets up and lays out Undertaker after the match with a tombstone of his own onto a chair.

This was quite the effective heavyweight slugger. One of the best uses of Kane that I've seen and I actually liked Undertakers performance. Liked his punch combos, liked his huge dive, liked him going for a damn victory roll of all things, liked him blocking Kanes assault and surviving. Ending sequence was about as well executed as you can ask for.
