The Undertaker recently made some controversial remarks about WWE’s product on Joe Rogan’s podcast. The Deadman said that he has a hard time watching the product as a fan because it is ‘too soft‘. The Deadman also stated that he preferred the wrestlers from his time as they were ‘real men’ compared to the WWE Superstars of today.
While speaking to Riju Dasgupta of Sportskeeda, WWE Champion Drew McIntyre addressed The Undertaker’s remarks on WWE’s current product. McIntyre said he doesn’t agree whatsoever with what The Undertaker said.
McIntyre said that he thinks The Undertaker was referring to the storylines and characters in modern-day WWE and not the in-ring work of Superstars.
The WWE Champion added that things are far different in the PG era of WWE compared to The Attitude era. There is only so far the company can push the envelope.
“I don’t agree whatsoever. Especially from an in-ring perspective. I’ve listened to part of it, I’ve got to listen to the whole thing it’s pretty new, but I think he may have been referring to like the kind of storylines and characters etc. Like the co-host that was on the show was like a fan from the attitude era and I think they were perhaps referring to some of the outlandish storylines. Back in the day, there were more sexual based, more like risque 18 plus. Our current product is PG, there’s only so far we can push it and we’re willing to push it. There’s certain things from back in the day that was awesome and certain things that were not awesome that I wouldn’t wanna go back to. So I’m not sure if it was more from like that perspective when it comes to the stories and not being as adult-based as it used to be but I think you know we’re walking a good line right now. But when it comes to the in-ring game, that’s just not true at all. It’s never been more physical.”
Drew McIntyre is scheduled to have a face-to-face with Goldberg on the upcoming episode of Monday Night RAW.
