The Undertaker’s dedication to putting his body on the line for fans’ enjoyment has earned him legendary status, though it comes with its drawbacks. He doesn’t wrestle anymore but that doesn’t mean he isn’t keeping tabs on modern-day professional wrestling. In fact, The Deadman has unveiled his ultimate desire for modern-day professional wrestlers.

The WWE Hall of Famer officially put an end to his in-ring career at Survivor Series in 2020. His final match occurred at WrestleMania 36 the same year, where he emerged victorious in a Boneyard match against AJ Styles.

While speaking on his Six Feet Under podcast, The Undertaker discussed today’s wrestlers, acknowledging their exceptional athleticism. However, he expressed a wish that they would focus more on storytelling.

The Phenom emphasized that if wrestlers incorporated better storytelling into their matches, they wouldn’t need to take as many risks with their bodies.

These guys are so athletic, off the chart athleticism, they go out there and they give 110% every time on TV and everything like that. I just wish, if they can get a little bit more aspect of the storytelling, they’ll realize that they won’t have to take as many chances with their body.”

“Maybe they don’t want it because they have seen me walk backstage and maybe they don’t want 30 years, but, I think the careers if they don’t learn storytelling aspect a little bit better they’re going to continue to rely on the athleticism and then more injuries come. I’ve had enough injuries, it just sucks so bad.”

The Undertaker previously mentioned facing accusations of ruining people’s childhoods. Nonetheless, The Phenom will have an opinion when it comes to the current generation of professional wrestlers and that is not changing anytime soon.
