Former WWE heavyweight champion The Undertaker is a big fan of multi-time WWE champion Edge.
The pair had numerous pay-per-view matches in the late 2000s as two of SmackDown’s top stars, including the main event of WrestleMania XXIV when “The Phenom” beat “The Rated-R Superstar” for the World Heavyweight Championship.
And when asked in a rapid-fire Q&A session for WWE’S TikTok page, The Undertaker named Edge is his favourite WWE star currently. The Phenom also pointed out some of his favorite wrestlers of the past and present in the process

Edge, who is a WWE Hall of Famer and former WWE Champion who, made his return from retirement back at the 2020 Royal Rumble event and has since worked with the likes of Randy Orton, Roman Reigns, Daniel Bryan and Seth Rollins.
He’ll face The Miz at the Day 1 pay-per-view on New Year’s Day in Atlanta.
Edge and The Undetaker have shared the ring together on countless occasions over the years.
One of the reasons The Undertaker might be a big fan of Edge is because of what went down between them at WrestleMania XXIV when the two men were in the main event of the show for Edge’s World Heavyweight Championship, a match that The Undertaker won, continuing his undefeated WrestleMania streak.
Years later, it emerged that there were plans for Edge to defeat The Undertaker that night and end the streak, something Edge spoke out against, refusing to be the first man to defeat The Deadman at WrestleMania. Of course, the streak wouldn’t be broken until six years later at WrestleMania XXX, when Brock Lesnar beat The Phenom.
Whether their past has anything to do with The Undertaker’s choice is anybody’s guess, but it’s nice to see the mutual respect that these two WWE icons have for one another.
