The Bear stare is a well documented undertaker hater. Always trying to belittle him in some passive aggressive way, like saying he is a great employee blah blah blah
Don't fool yourself because you don't like the character. He is the top 10 all time for most people, even top 5/mount Rushmore for a lot of people. He is the greatest big man (near 7 footer) of all time. He could work with the best of them.
In an era where we have tons of guys with convoluted titled reigns, 7, 8, 9, 10 plus titles.. he didn't have that many. I remember when Bret hart won the belt for the 5th time and that was a huge deal. Ric flairs reigns always seemed like such a huge deal. Taker always was willing to put people over. Even in his prime. He earned his once a year wrestlemania appearance.
Taker would often take guys that are new or hot and rising, or just different and let them appear strong and even go over him
Like the great Khali, Mr. Kennedy, Muhammed hassan, Kane, edge and Orton when they were barely entering the main event scene, brock lesnat when he was barely the next big thing.
Taker has some bad matches. But he has some of the greatest matches in wrestlemania history
