The 90s was a wild time – and you need no further evidence than this clip of The Undertaker beating up Ant and Dec on Gimme 5.

WWE’s resident Dead Man appeared on the ITV Saturday morning show alongside his manager Paul Bearer to promote the company’s annual UK tour in 1994, and he got to grips with future British television royalty.

First, Ant McPartin and Dec Donnelly – looking very fresh faced – can be seen talking tactics as they prepared to take on ‘Taker on a bouncy castle wrestling ring later in the segment.

‘He’s bigger, meaner and stronger and hairier,’ Dec admitted.

Sounding a bit concerned, Ant added: ‘It’s like wrestling a house.’

The duo even namedropped some wrestling moves including a forearm smash and Boston Crab, before the Phenom appeared and sent them running.

Undertaker and Paul Bearer then sat down for a brief interview to promote the upcoming SummerSlam pay-per-view and UK dates.

The Dead Man got asked for his thoughts on Ant and Dec, but simply repeated their names, smashed a table and headed on the warpath.

The duo were seen finishing a video game segment when ‘Taker loomed over with Eye of the Tiger baring out, destroying the haystack they were sat on and grabbing them both by the scruff of their necks.

He dragged them over to the bouncy castle ring, lobbing them in and proving why Saturday morning telly really was the best.

This month, WWE fans are preparing to say goodbye to The Undertaker with the legend’s ‘final farewell’ set for Survivor Series on November 22.

The Dead Man announced his retirement earlier this year, and to celebrate his career BT Sport has announced a whole week of Undertaker coverage honouring the Phenom.

The week of content will kick off on November 16, and run until the Sunday night leading into Survivor Series itself, which will be available on the WWE Network and BT Sport Box Office.

Viewers will be treated to footage from The Last Ride documentary series, which aired earlier this year and ended with the epic bombshell that Undertaker was calling time on his legendary career.

The Phenom’s first interview with on “Stone Cold” Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Sessions will also get an airing before they get together again on November 22 for another in-depth chat.

After the success of the first What Went Down special – which saw Triple H and Stephanie McMahon break down their WrestleMania 34 match against Kurt Angle and Ronda Rousey – fans will be treated to another edition.

This time, the programme with focus on The Undertaker and Triple H’s memorable Hell In A Cell Match from WrestleMania 28, which featured Shawn Michaels as the special guest referee.

As if that wasn’t enough, BT Sport will also be broadcasting some of ‘Taker’s most iconic bouts every night of the week.
