After a gruesome ladder match with a determined Jeff Hardy, The Undertaker successfully retained his WWE Championship on Raw.
"They basically told me that I would never amount to anything in this business, and that no one would ever buy a ticket to come see me wrestle."
this has to be the saddest image in the history of professional wrestling
In his first act as General Manager, Paul Heyman booked a handicap match with Undertaker facing Brock Lesnar and The Big Show. The stipulation was that if he won, Undertaker could choose to face any superstar at any event. As a fallen and victorious Undertaker laid in the entryway McMahon began screaming at him, saying that he would never be WWE Champion again as long as he was alive and that he demanded to know what kind of match Undertaker would seek now that he could pick anyone to face at anytime.
