WWE Survivor Series gold: The Undertaker's dramatic debut - 28 years ago!

The course of WWE history was permanently changed on November 22, 1990, when a macabre character appeared on screen for the first time.
Ted DiBiase had promised that a mystery man would partner him, The Honky Tonk Man and Greg Valentine in a traditional Survivor Series elimination match against Dusty Rhodes, Koko B Ware and The Hart Foundation - and he delivered a 6ft 10in behemoth, a man seemingly from beyond the grave.
The Undertaker did not secure victory for The Million Dollar Team - that came when DiBiase bested Bret Hart after reversing a flying body press - but The Phenom did make his mark before being counted out, conquering Koko with a Tombstone piledriver and Rhodes with a double axe handle.
A legend was duly born and nothing in WWE - and, in sports entertainment - was ever the same again as the Dead Man embarked on a near three decade-long run at the very top of the industry which continues to this day.
And it all began at Survivor Series all those years and years ago...
