The Undertaker will forever be regarded as a legend in the world of professional wrestling. His contributions to the business will never be forgotten as he has given 30 years of his life and sacrificed his body. It seems he wasn’t a fan of a particular patriotic angle.
The Undertaker had his final match against AJ Styles at WrestleMania 36 in a Boneyard match. The match was a resounding success and received a lot of critical praise from fans and Superstars alike.
While speaking on WWE’s the Bump, The Undertaker talked about the 1993 Survivor Series pay-per-view. He was part of “The All-Americans” team. He joined the team on an episode of Monday Night RAW by revealing an American flag lining the inside of his jacket.
The Phenom revealed that he was absolutely livid over wearing the jacket due to the fact that it simply did not suit his character at that time.
“Believe me, I’m as big a patriot as will come down the road. I do a lot of work with our veterans and our first responders. But when Vince [McMahon] presented that to me, I was like, ‘There is no way in heck I am gonna walk out there and open my coat with that flag’. [But] he thought it was so cool because it was the Betsy Ross 13-colony flag, right? And that was what was gonna make it cool. I was livid. I was like, ‘This is not what Undertaker does.’”
The Undertaker also recently revealed that he would’ve joined the army if pro wrestling didn’t work out for him. The Undertaker has been enjoying his life in retirement since then but had also mentioned earlier that he wanted to mentor young WWE talents. We will have to see what is next in store for the Phenom.
