The Undertaker has been defeated by only a handful of superstars in his WWE career as he was a well-protected character in the company. Besides those lucky superstars from professional wrestling, there’s one more name who had also done that unthinkable, all the way back in the 90s who recently reminded about his accolade by noting the same on social media.
Top Bollywood Superstar Akshay Kumar took to Twitter to remind the world that he holds the honor of defeating WWE Legend The Undertaker. He did the same in a film, Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi, not inside the squared circle, of course.
On the eve of the 25-year anniversary of his film Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi, Akshay Kumar shared a meme that also includes Brock Lesnar, Triple H, and Roman Reigns – three names who have defeated The Deadman in a WWE ring. The caption of the photo stated the following,
“A hilarious note to mark 25 years to the release of #KhiladiyonKaKhiladi tomorrow! A fun fact though: it was wrestler Brian Lee who played The Undertaker in the film.”

As seen in the video below, Kumar defeated The Undertaker in a fight during the climax of the movie. As noted by the movie hero, it was Brian Lee who portrayed the character of Taker, and not Mark Callaway who was behind the legendary WWE gimmick. Wrestler Lee also defeated former WWE Superstar Crush in another fight sequence in the movie Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi.
The Undertaker is currently retired from WWE
It should be noted that Brian Lee was the man to impersonate The Undertaker on WWE TV in the mid-1990s. He involved in a feud with Callaway which resulted in an interesting Taker vs. Taker match for the headliner of SummerSlam 1994. Callaway continued with his Hall of Fame WWE career while Lee never showed up in the promotion, ever again.
After serving the WWE Universe for more than 30 long years, The Undertaker hang up his boots for good after competing in the Boneyard Match at Wrestlemania 36 against AJ Styles. The critically acclaimed match was a cinematic match that took place in an outdoor setup. To be precise, Taker’s final match in a WWE ring took place at Extreme Rules 2019 where he teamed up with Roman Reigns to defeat Drew McIntyre and Shane McMahon in a tag team action.
