Speaking with Cultaholic, Sean Waltman (aka X-Pac) has revealed that The Undertaker actually refused to lose to Matt Bloom (formerly Albert/A-Train) on free television.
X-Pac revealed that while Albert was with him in the X-Factor faction, The Undertaker outright refused to lose to him, having the following to say on the matter:
They actually booked him [Matt Bloom] to beat Undertaker on TV one time, but Undertaker was like, ‘Nah, that’s not happening. Like, just out of nowhere?’ And I don’t blame Mark. It’s almost like telling Steve [Austin] to come to TV just so he can do a job for Brock [Lesnar] real quick. It was during the X-Factor stuff. We were still X-Factor.”
The Undertaker clearly has no heat with X-Pac for what happened, with the WWE Hall of Famer saying that he doesn’t blame ‘Taker for refusing to lose to Albert on TV.
