The Undertaker proved once again this year that he remains one of the biggest draws in the WWE.

His appearance at Levi's Stadium for WrestleMania 31 was one of the most talked about moments - both leading up to, and during the epic show.

Close call

Now 50 years old, The Dead Man is a living, working WWE legend. It could all have been very different though according to one current Hall of Famer who, speaking today, revealed just how close The Undertaker came to a monumental move that would have sent shockwaves through the WWE.

Kevin Nash, speaking to Extra Mustard, went on record to discuss just how close he came to convincing The Undertaker to quit the then WWF in favor of a move to WCW - leaving behind The Deadman gimmick for good.

"We had 'Taker close," explained Nash. "All of a sudden he wasn't the Deadman. He became the American Badass for a reason. That Deadman wasn't going to f***in' come to WCW. He would have been the biker character and gone by Mark Calaway."

The move would have come during the Monday Night War days when Kevin Nash was dominating the WCW scene. The Undertaker, at the time, was out of action in the WWF as he recovered from a couple of injuries. Getting him to move to the rival promotion would certainly have proved a major coup.

Staying Loyal

Nash's revelation is certainly intriguing, but ultimately The Undertaker (albeit in his American Badass character) opted to stay loyal to the WWF/WWF.

The Superstar came back in 2000 to enjoy some big successes in his new guise before returning to The Undertaker character that he continues to embody today - 15 years on.
