In what is being described as a “Once in a Lifetime” showdown, The Undertaker’s legendary, phantasmagoric entrance will square off against up-and-comer Finn Balor’s surreal demonic entrance at WrestleMania this April.
For more than two decades, The Undertaker’s entrance has boasted an undefeated “streak” as the greatest entrance in WrestleMania history, but Balor’s macabre entrance may be the one to finally conquer the streak.
Balor’s entrance has captivated fans of NXT with its serpentine choreography and Wagnerian score, leading some pundits to speculate that the Undertaker’s entrance may have finally met its match.
“Taker’s entrance is a legend, no doubt, but all legends die eventually,” wrote veteran wrestling journalist Dan Mutzler. “Balor’s entrance may get the upset of the year.”
Bray Wyatt’s entrance attempted to break the Undertaker’s entrance’s streak at the last WrestleMania, but Wyatt’s fireflies and oil lantern proved no match for The Undertaker’s gong, slow walk and dry ice.
In related news, WWE announced today that WrestleMania 32 will be a record-setting nine hours long.
