This would give him time to heal his groin injury. After eight months time-off due to real-life injuries, the Undertaker made his long-awaited return at Judgment Day in May However, the days of pitch black, blue fog and church organ music entrances were gone.
The Undertaker was now The " American Bad Ass " termed by the Kid Rock song which was his entrance music during the early months of the persona, later to be changed to "Rollin'" by Limp Bizkit biker complete with sunglasses, bandana, jean shirt and motorcycle. The Badass allowed everyone to see a new side of the Undertaker. While still one of the most dominant forces in the WWF, he appeared human, introducing the world to his wife Sara and speaking as a normal human being.
Also, the character began to Take more moves from opponents, making him appear more vulnerable. In addition, he began to use the Last Ride an elevated powerbomb as a replacement finishing move for the Tombstone Piledriver , which he began using only on occasion.
Many argue that the only reason that this persona occurred was because of the ongoing feud with WCW during the Monday Night Wars and shortly after the Invasion , Taker rerouted to his original "Dark Theme". The Undertaker now had a new partially shaved haircut, dyed jet black, accompanied by a new brawling, "do-what-I-want" bullying attitude, arguably more aggressive than ever before.
He would then debut new original WWF-produced music. Although the Undertaker still rode a motorcycle, he did not use it as much as he did during the American Badass run.
During his run he would assault superstars if he felt they did not "respect" him. After the Undertaker turned face again by showing Jeff Hardy full respect, Big Evil would turn out to be more of an extension of the American Badass persona than a different mode in itself.
An example would be during his feud with The Un-Americans. For three years, The Undertaker showed a different, more human, side of himself before being Buried Alive by Kane at Survivor Series This Undertaker was a culmination of all his previous personas; dressed in his Big Evil attire accompanied by a long leather trench coat and hat.
His updated "old school" attire included tights as part of a full body suit with big evil pain-syndicate devil symbols on his legs which were white at first, though the color would change with time. His supernatural powers and mind games returned, as did his long hair over time through , and his invulnerability and signature 'sit-up' though reduced in intensity from his previous dark side personas.
Paul Bearer returned by his side, but was disposed of by 'Taker himself after only a short time for being "a weakness", after a Handicap Match against The Dudleys. The Undertaker became somewhat invincible during this persona as he was booked to be 'destroyed' several times and yet continually 'came back'. The first such instance occurred during his feud with Randy Orton after a casket match, when Randy and his father, Cowboy Bob Orton , burned him inside a casket, much like Kane did years before, only to have Undertaker emerge several months later from a burning casket.
The Great Khali and Mark Henry both claimed to have taken the Undertaker out of action in and , respectively. Undertaker returned both times to ultimately become the first person to defeat Khali, and defeat Henry, each time putting claims of his demise to rest. Two other notable feuds of his during and were against Batista and Edge.
After being kayfabe stripped of his title by Vickie Guererro , Taker continued his feud with Edge. The pre-match stipulation was that if Undertaker were to lose, he would be "banished" from the WWE. Undertaker lost the match and kayfabe "left". I won't be the one who killed you I'll just leave that up to you I'm not gonna be here to revive you I'm not gonna be here to revive you I'm not gonna be here to revive you I'm gonna be the one to say I told you so I told you Severing the heart then I'm leaving you corpse behind Not dead but soon to be and I'm gonna be the one to say I told you so.
