WWE Hall Of Famer Agrees With Triple H About Being A Big Star In WWE System WWE

WWE Hall of Famer The Undertaker has agreed with what Triple H said about being a big star elsewhere and in the WWE system.

WWE Chief Content Officer Paul “Triple H” Levesque made several headlines ahead of WrestleMania 40 when he discussed wrestlers who didn’t want to be part of the “grind” in the company. He went on to mention that just because someone is a star elsewhere, doesn’t mean they will be successful in the WWE.

Speaking on his Six Feet Under podcast, The Undertaker shared his thoughts on what Triple H had to say. He said:

“Somebody asked Triple H about other talent coming in from other places. It was so true, but I never heard anybody really say it.”

“There was a time like back in the day when guys came in from WCW and were big stars in WCW, and not such big stars when they got to WWE.”

“Of course, people always want to point fingers, ‘There was this vendetta.’ That’s just crap. If you draw money…obviously, you have to be put in a situation to be able to draw money, but you have to work within that WWE frame of mind.”

“That’s the thing that he was trying to say. Just because you were a big star here or there, doesn’t mean you’re going to fit into the WWE system without a little bit of acclimation time.”

“That’s what most ‘smart marks’ don’t get. They’re like, ‘He was this huge star at this company, but now at WWE…,”

After Taker’s co-host commented, “The boss had it out for him.” The Undertaker continued:

“Why on earth, that’s the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard.”

“Why would you waste anyone’s time just to bring them in, just to hold them down? It’s ridiculous, it’s the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard.”

“You don’t bring people in to hold them down. You bring people in to make the product better.”

The Undertaker appeared at WrestleMania 40 Night Two as he helped Cody Rhodes defeat Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship in the main event.
