Reliving 'The Streak:' The Undertaker defeats Jake Roberts at WrestleMania 8

Now that The Undertaker's famous undefeated streak has ended, we can now look back it in its entirety. In the days leading up to WrestleMania 31, we will take a look back at every memorable chapter of the feat that can never be duplicated. Here's a look at what became the holy grail of professional wrestling.

1-0 |

The Undertaker vs. Jake "The Snake" Roberts (2-0)

WrestleMania VIII | Hoosier Dome — Indianapolis, Ind. | April 5, 1992

Attendance: 62,167

Match length: 6:36

A number of massive stadiums have witnessed The Undertaker saunter down the aisle for a match at WrestleMania, but the good folks in Indianapolis, Ind. were the first.

The Undertaker was his usually brooding self, but he was a babyface for the first going against the dastardly Jake Roberts.

The former allies-turned-foes headed into the ring for a match that Bobby "The Brain" Heenan foresaw someone getting seriously hurt. In storyline, that person turned out to be Roberts.

Much like he did to Snuka the year before, The Undertaker pretty much dominated Roberts. The Undertaker even survived two DDTs, which was an astonishing feat at that point, considering that the DDT was the most feared move in the industry.

The match came to a decisive end when The Undertaker delivered a tombstone piledriver to Roberts on the outside of the ring.

After performing the move, The Undertaker put Roberts' seemingly lifeless body back into the ring and pinned him to win his second consecutive outing at the biggest show of the year.
