Everyone has their own tastes in wrestling. Some people like comedy, others like technical mastery, and some just want believability. One of the people who apparently wants to be able to believe what he is seeing is The Undertaker.
In a recent interview with Yahoo, The Undertaker discussed how he just doesn’t buy some of WWE’s recent champions. He brought up people’s size and believability as to why he couldn’t get into them. Here is the quote:
“It doesn’t necessarily have to be a big guy big guy, but we have stretched the realms of reality sometimes with some of our champions. When you see some of the guys that they have to work with, it’s like, OK, I get it, we’re sports entertainment — BUT. My whole goal when I went to the ring, I don’t care if you’re smart, not smart, whatever, when I’m in the ring I want people thinking, ‘This dude’s legit.’ And if I hit somebody, I want people in the front row going, ‘No, dude, he hit him. I don’t care what happened in the match before, he just lit him up. This is on.’
So it’s hard because we’re kind of starting to get a little bit of an influx of big guys, but it’s just kind of where– because there’s so much new talent, you can’t put the title on a guy just because he’s big. And back in the day, man, we had tons of big guys that could go and could carry it and do that.
So it’s more of a guy that kind of fits in the middle of the road. A guy that you’ll believe working with a big guy but can also work with a little guy. But there are certain guys that have had — I won’t bring in names — but it’s just like, yeah, I just don’t buy it. I don’t buy this as my champion. And it’s not any fault of their own, other than they’re physically not able to match up against certain people.”
The Undertaker is set to have his Final Farewell at this year’s Survivor Series. The show will mark 30 years of his career in WWE. Also, he mentioned recently that he has spoken to Triple H about possibly teaching at the Performance Center going forward.
