It’s a special feature length edition of Sports Entertainment is Dead this week, as ‘Plan sits down to provide part one of his performance art view on what he likes to call “The WrestleMania Tetralogy” – The Undertaker’s matches against Shawn Michaels and Triple H at WrestleManias 25 through XXVIII.
In this first part, ‘Plan explains his view on the Tetralogy itself – a four-part overarching story spanning four editions of The Showcase of Immortals. Then, watch the matches along with ‘Plan in real time as he revisits first the legendary encounter between Mr WrestleMania and The Streak at the 25th Anniversary of WrestleMania and, latterly, the epic Career vs. Streak rematch from WrestleMania XXVI – all the while, ‘Plan running down his interpretation of how the two matches connect, lead into their sequels in following years and contain symbolism, subtext, character arcs and more, not just in bell to bell time but in all the window dressing too. Then, next week, it’s the same all over again, albeit with the two sequels wrestled between the Dead Man and The Game, Triple H!
If you’re a fan of either or both of the two Michaels / ‘Taker matches at ‘Mania, you won’t want to miss this one!
