The Undertaker had a legendary career in the world of pro wrestling and took it very seriously. However, there are still many people who constantly dismiss WWE as ”fake” and never take it seriously.
While speaking to the Victory Over Injury Podcast, The Phenom talked about people who call WWE ”fake,” noting that he would often challenge those who cleared WWE ”fake” in a test of strength. He then went on to defend pro wrestling in general.
The Deadman then explained how WWE truly takes a physical toll on a Superstar’s body and it is all real.
“The old-school me, when someone would say something derogatory about our business, like, “Ah, you guys are all fake!” The old-school me would be more, “OK, let’s see how fake what I do is!” Vince has gone out and he’s explained what our product is and people don’t care. If you like what we do, it doesn’t matter what it is. There’s still that one percent in the world that thinks, “It’s all a bunch of crap!” And it’s like, well, if it was as easy as you think it is, there’d be a lot more people doing it! And being successful and doing these types of things. It’s just, you said it just a minute ago, gravity always wins. There’s just so much that the human body can physically take. It doesn’t matter whether or not you’re in the ring with your friend or somebody you like, somebody you don’t like, there’s the matter of you got the thumbs up that night, or the thumbs down. To get to that point, there’s a lot of physicality involved. Then multiple that by 270 dates (a year), it’s a miracle there’s not more injuries.”
We have to wonder what The Deadman thinks about Soulja Boy and his rants against Randy Orton.
The Undertaker hung up his boots at Survivor Series 2020, where he kept his retirement speech short for an interesting reason. We will have to see what is next in store for the legendary WWE Superstar.
