All Rise...

Judge David Johnson's deadliest match? A KFC Double Down eating contest.

The Charge

The best of the Dead Man.

The Case

He's huge, scary-looking, and uses more eye-liner than a production of Hairpsray. He's The Undertaker, a.k.a. The Phenom, and a pile of his biggest matches have been collected on three discs for your viewing pleasure:

Disc One
Undertaker vs. Ultimate Warrior, 1991 (Body Bag Match)
Undertaker vs. Kamala, 1992 (Coffin Match)
Undertaker vs. Kama, 1995 (Casket Match(
Undertaker vs. King Mabel, 1995 (Casket Match)
Undertaker vs. Mankind, 1996
Undertaker vs. Mankind, 1996 (Boiler Room Brawl)
Undertaker vs. Stone Cold Steve Austin, 1998 (Buried Alive Match)
Undertaker vs. Kane, 1999 (Inferno Match)

Disc Two
Undertaker vs. Big Show, 1999
Undertaker vs. Big Show, 1999 (WWE Championship)
Undertaker vs. The Dudley Boys, 2004 (Concrete Crypt Match)
Undertaker vs. Heidenreich, 2005 (Casket Match)
Undertaker vs. Randy Orton and Bob Orton, 2005 (Handicap Casket Match)
Undertaker vs. Randy Orton, 2005 (Hell in a Cell)
Undertaker vs. Great Khali, 2006 (Last Man Standing)

Disc Three
Undertaker vs. Mr. Kennedy, 2006 (First Blood Match)
Undertaker vs. Mr. Kennedy, 2006 (Last Ride Match)
Undertaker vs. Batista, 2007 (Last Man Standing)
Undertaker vs. Big Daddy V, 2008
Undertaker vs. Edge, 2008 (Hell in a Cell)
Undertaker vs. Big Show, 2008 (Steel Cage Match)

This release is straight-up wrestling, with no documentary elements tossed in. It's The Undertaker climbing into the ring and wrecking fools (his legendary match-ups with Shawn Michaels in WrestleMania are mysteriously AWOL) and that's about it. Hyperactive montages are inserted between matches as introductions, but anyone looking for an in-depth look at the man's career and personality will not find that here.

Choke-slams and white eyeballs? This set has you covered. A couple of noob criticisms though: 1) Why zero mention of the Bad-Ass persona Undertaker developed a while back, riding in on his motorcycle and what not?; 2) Wow, The Undertaker wrestles in a a lot of gimmicky matches; and 3) Who are some of these guys? King Mabel? Kamala?

The Verdict

Are you up for watching The Undertaker pound grown men into submission? Not Guilty!

Did we give WWE: The Undertaker's Deadliest Matches a fair trial? yes / no
