• The Undertaker Confronted Vince McMahon At WrestleMania 25
During a recent appearance on the Chat Grapple and Cheap Pops Podcast, former WWE Referee Marty Elias revealed that The Undertaker confronted Vince McMahon at WrestleMania 25.
This happened when The Deadman was told his match against Shawn Michaels will be given 15 minutes and will be #3 on the card, behind the Miss WrestleMania Battle Royal.
Below is what Marty said:
“We were sitting there and The Undertaker looks at Shawn Michaels and he goes, ‘Shawn, how long you been with this company?’ Shawn goes, ‘Most of my life.’
And [Undertaker] goes, ‘Hmm, 15 minutes? Third? That ain’t gonna fly.’”
In the end, The Phenom and HBK had a 30-minute match, which not only ended up being the best match on the show, but is considered the best match in the history of WrestleMania.
Instead of being the third match from the start, it was the third match from the last (only behind the World Heavyweight Championship and the WWE Championship matches).
The Undertaker defeated Shawn Michaels on that night to extend his WrestleMania winning streak to 17-0.
However, The Streak almost ended accidentally during this match. Tap here to read more.

• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (February 27, 2014) – Old School Wrestling Veteran Passed Away
On this day in 2014, we lost Old School Wrestling Veteran Billy Robinson at the age of 75 due to natural causes.
The British ‘catch wrestling’ specialist had a great career in the United States, Canada, Europe & Japan.
In 1982, he wrestled WWWF World Heavyweight Champion Bob Backlund to a 60-minute time limit draw.
Billy Robinson has been inducted into several smaller Pro Wrestling Halls of Fame, but has yet to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, which is most likely going to happen as part of the annual ‘Legacy Wing’ inductions.
† REST IN PEACE BILLY ROBINSON
