Reliving 'The Streak:' The Undertaker defeats Mark Henry at WrestleMania 22

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 | 2-0 | 3-0 | 4-0 | 5-0 | 6-0 | 7-0 | 8-0 | 9-0 | 10-0 | 11-0 | 12-0 | 13-0 |

The Undertaker vs. Mark Henry (14-0)

WrestleMania 22 | Allstate Arena — Rosemont, Ill. | April 6, 2006

Attendance: 17,159

Match length: 9:28

With every victory at WrestleMania, The Undertaker made history by extending his awe-inspiring winning streak.

In 2006, he made another bit of history by taking part in the first-ever casket match at WrestleMania against Mark Henry.

However, the match itself was not all that historic. While both men are very talented, for whatever reason, The Undertaker and Henry didn't quite mesh on this night.

A part of me actually wishes this match could have taken place five years later, when Henry found his groove as a heel with the Hall of Pain. The Undertaker versus Henry in 2011 would have been great.

However, in 2006, it was just another match on the card. Clocking in at nine minutes and 28 seconds, it was given a decent amount of time, but not nearly enough for these two giants to tell a proper story.

The biggest highlight from the affair was the insane dive The Undertaker did to the outside of the ring. A man The Undertaker's size should not be performing rope-clearing dives to the outside. Not to mention, The Undertaker was 41 years old at the time with more than enough tread on the proverbial tires. The fact that he was able to do that and pull it off without killing himself is pretty amazing.

The craziest part is that he'd do it multiple times in the future.

For the casket stipulation alone, this match sticks out in the long line of victories for The Undertaker, but the match itself was largely forgettable.
