The Undertaker sacrificed his body for three decades for the enjoyment of fans and became a living legend. His influence in the pro wrestling industry is unparalleled as well. His sacrifices also caught up with him.
The Deadman was finally inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame earlier this year. Taker was inducted by Vince McMahon, which was something The Deadman wanted. Naturally, fans were left teary-eyed when all was said and done.
No one can argue just how much The Undertaker loved the business. While speaking on The Wrestling Outlaws, Vince Russo revealed that The Deadman competed in some of his greatest matches while being in “intense” pain.
“It was awesome working with him (The Undertaker). Probably, more of my communication was with Paul Bearer because he did the talking. Taker was a man of few words. He worked some of his most epic matches in intense pain, and he never sold it, and you would never know it. Here’s how I would see it. If it was a main event and it was last, and everybody left the building, he would come to the back and just sneak away into one of the locker rooms and collapse.”
The Undertaker has also recorded several episodes of his upcoming podcast. He’ll forever be respected no matter what as well. We’ll have to wait and see what the future holds for The Deadman.
