The Undertaker gave a memorable and emotional speech as he was inducted into this year’s class of the WWE Hall of Fame. Fans waited a very long time for that to happen, and they were not disappointed, for the most part. The Undertaker also reacted to criticism surrounding his WWE Hall Of Fame speech as well.
He has squared off against the likes of Stone Cold Steve Austin, Kane, The Rock, and several other legendary names. It also includes Mick Foley as well.
During his WWE Hall Of Fame speech, The Undertaker referenced multiple stars who were a major part of his career. However, he didn’t mention Mick Foley and this led to backlash. While speaking with Bleacher Report, The Undertaker reacted to criticism surrounding his WWE Hall Of Fame speech.
“I delivered the speech and I got everything out there that I wanted to say. I got a little bit of blowback for not mentioning a couple of people, but it wasn’t about…If I go through every angle, every opponent…It was more about those three pillars I referenced back when I’m talking about Shawn [Michaels], that had a direct meaning to never being content. That’s why I talked so much about Shawn then, Triple H.
I’ve talked about Mick Foley until I’m blue in the gills . . . It was about my journey and the things I’ve learned through those 30-plus years that I was trying to share and help people in their lives and thank the WWE Universe. That’s what it was all about. If anyone was offended, I’m sorry.”
Mick Foley wasn’t bothered by the omission either. Mick Foley will forever be grateful to The Undertaker for all the ways he helped his career, and that’s what matters.
