The Undertaker is arguably the most respected figure in the pro-wrestling business. The man has become a national icon and has dedicated decades of his life to his craft.
Taker recently had an interview with TV Insider to promote his Undertaker: The Last Ride documentary series. During the interview, The Phenom was asked about his thoughts on the current WWE Champion Drew McIntyre.
The Deadman said that he is really proud of McIntyre and that he has earned his position in the company. He revealed that Drew is one of the people who’ve come to him for guidance since day one and has actually implied the wisdom that was imparted to him.
I’m really proud of Drew. He earned it. He came in with a lot of fanfare, and it didn’t quite work out for him. He has been one of the guys from day one who has come to me and picked my mind on different things and asked me my opinion on a lot of things. He is actually someone who has listened and tried to apply some of the stuff that I’ve given him.
So I’m really happy for Drew. Sometimes it takes a while to figure things out. For a lot of guys, you have to taste a little bit of failure and regroup and find out how important all this is to you. He did that. He left and worked and came back. His confidence is so much better now than it was. He always had the tools. A lot of times it takes a little longer to put the whole package together. I think he is really starting to do that now.
If The Undertaker puts someone over like this, you’d better believe that the person is worth the praise.
