In the history of wrestling, there may be no greater character than The Undertaker. However, what character does he look at and think “I want to be that guy”?
Well, in a recent media appearance, The Undertaker was asked which existing WWE character he would want to be. Like many others over the years, he picked Ric Flair. Here is the quote, courtesy of Fightful:
“It’d be pretty tough not to want to be Ric Flair. I mean, he was just like the epitome of success and being World Champion and all the things that come with that. I just always thought Ric Flair, his character, was, you know, it was just so over the top, but not really, because that’s really Ric Flair. But, he’s kind of the bar for which guys of my generation measured themselves as far as success. He had obviously a tremendous — and continues to have a tremendous career. So I guess it’d be “The Nature Boy.” That is about as far off from The Undertaker as you can get.”
The Undertaker and Ric Flair have a good amount of history together. Flair, of course, helped the Deadman win his first WWE Championship back in 1991 at Survivor Series and then years later they wrestled one another at WrestleMania X8.
