Happy Corbin Recalls 40 Minute Conversation With The Undertaker About Character Work WWE

Ever since the Undertaker officially retired back at Survivor Series in 2020, he has pulled the curtain back and opened up more on his mindset to professional wrestling.

As someone who adapted his character a lot during his thirty year career, Taker’s brain is one of the best to pick knowledge from. Happy Corbin is one of those people, who spoke on WWE After The Bell about a 40 minute conversation he once had with Taker.

He said:

“That man is an icon. We know that, we’ve had these conversations. How [he] carries himself as a star. He demands attention. He’s another details guy, he thinks about every little thing he is doing. It’s not the match, it’s not the moves. He’s piecing together like these ten thousand piece puzzles and worrying about every detail. [He’s like] how long do I wanna walk to the ring, how long do I wanna stand on the third step before I get in the ring. Those are things that 99% of people don’t think about, they don’t take the time to appreciate those details. I was talking to him at the [Royal] Rumble for like 40 minutes about how to poise myself after doing something. Those are little things that separate [him] from everybody else. For me, it’s just [picking up on details] from every conversation. [He’s one of the best] big guys ever. I gravitated to him. I watched guys like Bam [Bam Bigelow] and [Big] Boss Man, and ‘Taker and Kane and those guys that were big and athletic.”

Corbin suffered his first pinfall defeat since he took on his Happy persona at WrestleMania 38, losing to Drew McIntyre.
