Kane, Nash, Sid, Big Show, etc. When he does the leg drop on the apron, he gets as high as the top rope with no running start. That's a pretty impressive standing verticle, wouldn't you say?
Everything else is all part of the script. He could do kicks to the chest, a running knee in the corner, and a rip off of a fame asser if he was scripted to do so. He could counter the No-Lock into a Hell's Gate if the script said. The in-ring skill that you speak of is all choreographed. It's the things you can't teach. like the height that someone of that build can actually jump, or the fact that a near 400 pounder like Bam Bam can fly around and do cartwheels. That's skill. That's true skill. Everything else is all a part of the choreographed show they put on. It doesn't matter if its WWE and TNA, or some indy promotion that fights in the gym of a high school.
Everyone's entitled to their opinion, and if you don't like Undertaker's style, that's great for you. But a blanket statement such as, he never had much real skill, is silly.
