WWE has released the full version of Undertaker vs. Heidenreich in a casket match from “Royal Rumble 2005”. Heidenreich was Paul Heyman’s latest monster to send after Undertaker as part of a long feud with this being the final match between the two. A tag match at “Wrestlemania XXI” with Kane and Snitsky was planned but dropped. Here’s the match:
Opinion: It says a lot when even Undertaker can’t make something work. Heidenreich just wasn’t very good and there’s not much of a way around that. He was big, lumbering and not a strong in-ring performer, though he did have a very intimidating look. I can see why this was a good idea on paper, but really it just wasn’t going to work no matter what they tried.
