• A Popular Character Came To An End 17 Years Ago Today
On this day in Pro Wrestling history on November 16, 2003, World Wrestling Entertainment aired ‘WWE Survivor Series 2003’ LIVE on PPV from the American Airlines Center at Dallas, Texas.
The PPV theme song of this dual brand (WWE RAW & WWE SmackDown!) pay-per-view was “Build A Bridge” by the ‘Limp Bizkit’.
The Tagline of the event was “A Fall from Grace”.
This event featured The Undertaker getting Buried Alive after Kane interfered in Taker’s match against Mr. McMahon.
This PPV marked the last time we saw the original version of the American Badass / Big Evil / Biker Taker. The Undertaker later returned as “The Deadman” in March 2004 at WrestleMania 20.
The Undertaker brought back the American Badass / Big Evil character (combined with The Deadman gimmick) for his final match at WrestleMania 36.
