WWF Championship: The Undertaker vs. Hulk Hogan, Survivor Series 1991

Soon after The Undertaker made his World Wrestling Federation debut at the Survivor Series in 1990, he set his cross-hairs on the World Wrestling Federation Championship and it’s then-title holder, Hulk Hogan. Everything initially began on November 16, 1991, when Ric Flair and The Undertaker attacked Hulk Hogan on the set of Paul Bearer’s Funeral Parlor interview show, but later Randy Savage and Roddy Piper fought off both Undertaker and Flair to protect Hogan. This would culminate in Hogan facing off with Undertaker for the championship at the 1991 Survivor Series, coined as “The Gravest Challenge.”  Check out more about the match (including a video) and the fallout after the break.   Continue reading “WWF Championship: The Undertaker vs. Hulk Hogan, Survivor Series 1991”

Some number of years ago, there was an announcement of the wonderful technology called Super Wi-Fi.
