The confrontation with Yokozuna carried over to the 1994 Royal Rumble where the Undertaker faced Yokozuna for the WWF world title. There was one extra stipulation in this match however. This match would be a casket match. For the weeks leading up to the Royal Rumble, the Undertaker intimidated Yokozuna. It was obvious that Yokozuna was afraid of the Darkside. In the title match Yokozuna was slow to go after the Undertaker. The Undertaker seemed to have the advantage through the entire match. However, after the Undertaker knocked out Yokozuna and put him into the casket, Mr. Fuji's hired guns came to help out. There were about twelve guys on the Undertaker. The Undertaker fought hard for a while, but eventually the numbers were too large. Yokozuna opened the urn and let its contents pour out. as green smoke came out of the urn, the Undertaker laid motionless on the mat. Yokozuna rolled the Undertaker into the casket and Bam Bam Bigelow closed the lid. Yokozuna preceeded to lock the casket and Mr. Fuji had his assistants push the casket out of the ringside area. As they were pushing the casket to the back, a bell tolled. The lights went out and smoke was coming from the casket. Then, on the video screen, the Undertaker appear. He then said, "Be not proud. The spirit of the Undertaker lives within the souls of all mankind. The eternal flame of life that cannot be estinguished. The origin of which cannot be explain. The answer lies in the everlasting spirit. Soon all mankind will witness the re-birth of the Undertaker. I... will not.... Rest.. In.. Peace." Then he rose to the ceiling and they cut to the next match.

The Undertaker would not be seen again until after Wrestlemania X, when Ted DiBiase claimed to have contacted the Undertaker. Paul Bearer, however, said that he hasn't heard from the Undertaker, and, if he didn't hear from the Undertaker, Ted DiBiase couldn't contact him either. But Ted DiBiase brought "the Undertaker" to a Superstars taping. The next Raw, Paul Bearer tried to get the Undertaker back to the Darkside, but the Undertaker was drawn to Ted DiBiase's money. Seeing this, Paul Bearer decided that this "Undertaker" could not be the real Undertaker, so Paul Bearer set out to find the Undertaker. A few weeks later Paul Bearer returned to Raw to confront DiBiase and his imposter when the imposter put Paul Bearer in a choke hold. The lights went out and when they came back up, Paul Bearer had escaped and said the Undertaker was back. The next week on Superstars, when Ted DiBiase's Undertaker was in the ring, Paul Bearer's Undertaker spoke for the first time saying that Ted DiBiase's Undertaker was an imposter and he would Rest In Peace.

At Summerslam, the two Undertaker's faced one another. When Paul Bearer's Undertaker came to the ring with a new look, with purple replacing the grey from his old costume. During the match Paul Bearer's Undertaker was in control. At one point in the match, DiBiase's Undertaker delivered a tombstone to Bearer's Undertaker. Thinking that wasn't enough, DiBiase's Undertaker attempted to give Bearer's Undertaker another tombstone. This time, however, Bearer's Undertaker reversed the tombstone and delivered it on DiBiase's. Bearer's Undertaker then delivered two more tombstones and cover the imposter for the victory. He then put DiBiase's imposter in a casket and wheeled him off.

At Survivor Series '94 the Phenom was looking for revenge against Yokozuna. The match was a casket match with Chuck Norris at ringside to guard against unwanted visitors. The Undertaker appeared to be in control for most of the match. Yokozuna seem to want no part of this more angry Undertaker. Later in the match Bam Bam Bigelow and King Kong Bundy came to ringside, where they were met by Chuck Norris. They fled, but Double J Jeff Jarrett came down to ringside and attempted to get by Norris. Chuck Norris responded by superkick Double J out. The Undertaker soon finished of Yokozuna and put him in the casket.


In early '95, the Undertaker spent most of his time fighting off Ted DiBiase's men. At the 1995 Royal Rumble, the Undertaker was up against Irwin R. Schyster. I.R.S. proved to be no match for the phenom as the Undertaker made short work of him and the "druids" that were at ringside.

At Wrestlemantia XI the Undertaker was challenged by another of DiBiase's men, King Kong Bundy. Bundy's also proved to be not much of a challenge as the Undertaker took care of him in under seven minutes.

The Undertaker was entered in the 1995 King Of The Ring. His first round opponent was Mabel. The Undertaker lost the match when Mo interfered from the outside. That was all the help Mabel needed, as he continued on to become the 1995 King of the Ring.

Following the King of the Ring, the Undertaker was once again antagonized by Ted DiBiase's men. The Undertaker this time took on Kama in a casket match at Summerslam '95. The Undertaker was victorious.

Months later, on an episode of Raw, the Undertaker had his face crush by Mabel and Yokozuna when they both performed leg drops over his face. The Undertaker was forced to where a mask covering over his face for the next couple of months. The Undertaker returned at the 1995 Survivor Series to extract revenge over at least half of the menace. The Phenom was in a Survivor Series match against Jerry Lawler, Hunter Hearst Helmesley, Issac Yankem (later known as KANE), and King Mable. The Undertaker's partners--not that they were needed--were Henry Godwinn, Savio Vega, and Fatu. The Undertaker saw his first action about 7 minutes into the match and immediately took out Jerry Lawler with a tombstone. Issac Yankem was next to go, very easily with another tombstone. Hunter could not fair much better, though he tried to get away. The Undertaker pulled him in from the outside and chokeslamed him halfway across the ring and covered him. Then Mable came into the ring, though very hesitantly. Mable was able to get the Undertaker off his feet and delivered another leg drop over the face. Mable preceeded to do a triumphant dance in front of the Undertaker only to have him sit up. Mable had seen enough. He took off out of the ring, leaving his tag team partner Mo to the wolves however. The Undertaker pulled him into the ring and delivered a chokeslam and a tombstone. The Undertaker wouldn't have to wait long to get to Mable however.

The next month at In Your House, Mable was given the assignment of the Undertaker in a casket match. The Undertaker would take his revenge and pick up the victory in the final Pay Per View of 1995.
