9. The Unholy Alliance era could have been so much better
After The Undertaker left both the Ministry and Corporate Ministry eras behind him, he formed an unlikely alliance with Big Show; the man who, just a few months beforehand, he had attacked with a baseball bat. And yet, somehow, someway, the pair formed a ghastly union.
The Unholy Alliance looked like something that walked out of the mouth of all; an undead demon flanked by a giant hellbent on destruction is the stuff of nightmares. And yet, it felt like a bit of an afterthought. Now don't get me wrong: They did a lot in a very short amount of time, winning the Tag Team Championships twice and even competing in a Buried Alive match against The Rock and Mankind, but they didn't carry the main-event-level aura that they should have.
'Taker kept talking about how he had taken the Big Show under his wing to give him the knowledge (and that certainly made for a good use of The Phenom during his injury) but it just went nowhere. Could you imagine if these two had been given the level of hype that the Brothers of Destruction had when they just showed up, attacked people, and left? Instead, it just felt like a storyline for The Undertaker after he had been pushed out of the title picture.
Between the fact that 'Taker was still wearing his Ministry attire and the lack of overall direction in their storyline, it just feels like the Unholy Alliance could have been much bigger than it was. It was good, but it could have been amazing.
