* MagnumOpus: The general consensus is that the best matches of 'Taker's career (and maybe even ''WrestleMania'' history) are his matches against Wrestling/ShawnMichaels and Wrestling/TripleH during 2009-2012. Fans are mostly split between his first match against HBK and his last match against Trips as THE best one, however.

* FairForItsDay: ** It's definitely a series that needs to be viewed with an understanding of the historical context. Like, if Kirk snapped his fingers and had a yeoman sit on his face it wouldn't be that shocking. Not just in the way that every female member of the crew is practically nude and being sexually harassed all the time, but also the lighthearted "aw shucks" tone with which the show addresses it. ** Nothing so bad as James Bond [[{{Film/Goldfinger}} pimp-handing a lesbian so hard it turns her straight]], but it does occasionally cross the line: Rand being molested by Kirk and Spock telling her to enjoy is particularly disarming, adding nothing to the scene and [[CharacterDerailment undermining all three characters]]. This is the one thing that really bleeds over from the 60s. The fact that this show was considered a beacon of progressiveness shows just how backwards things were back then. ** When Creator/NeilDegrasseTyson was talking to Takei about how Uhura was an example of how progressive the show was, Takei remarked, "Please! Uhura was the secretary. She answered the phone..." Go George!

* NarmCharm: Most smarks know that feeling: even as kids, it everyone as odd. "Why is a supernatural being such as The Undertaker and a Demonic being like Kane doing in a wrestling ring?", but you just go along with it as "How ''else'' are they gonna earn money?"

* GrowingTheBeard: Undertaker was pretty much a one-trick pony, until the Mankind feud in 1996. The match against Mankind at ''King of the Ring'' in 1996 is one of THE key moments in his career.

Once he started expanding his style, he improved a lot.

### The Undertaker vs. "Undertaker" feud culminated in maybe the worst Summerslam main event of all time. ### The American Badass.

* Narm: During the 2015 Hell in a Cell match with Lesnar, they were trying to sell i as something incredibly despicable that he was tombstoning him onto the exposed boards of the ring.... which may have worked if the Camera angle didn't show that Lesnar's head would have needed to call a cab to get to the mat. The gab had to be at least 18 inches if we're being generous.
