The Undertaker’s commitment to sacrificing his body for the entertainment of fans has elevated him to legendary status, albeit not without its consequences. While he may no longer step into the wrestling ring, it’s evident that he continues to closely monitor the developments within modern professional wrestling. Even then, The Deadman has revealed why it’s hard for him to give advice to modern 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.

Undertaker continues to make occasional appearances and closely follows WWE, but in a new Patreon exclusive Q&A, he admits finding it challenging to offer advice to today’s wrestlers given WWE’s overall business strength.

The former WWE World Heavyweight Champion reflects on his occasional desire to return to the ring and outperform current talents, acknowledging the internal conflict it creates. He admitted that it is hard for him to give advice to the current generation, as they are already so successful and making more money than The Deadman’s generation did.


“It’s really tough being backstage because there’s that part of me that wants to kind of pass it on to the guys that are there now and then, there’s the part of me that’s like ‘You should be out there doing it. You could do it better. Yeah and I mean, physically I can’t anymore, but those are all those little battles that I play in my head,” he admitted. “It’s hard to give advice anymore. Just for the fact that these guys are freaking killing it, business-wise. You guys are making more money than we ever made, what can I tell you?

“I mean, I wish they would storytell more and do a little less Cirque du Soleil, but I mean, evidently they tolerate it,” he continued. “I always think things could be better and there’s a place for some of the things that we used to do. They still have a valuable place in this product, but how do you tell somebody that’s absolutely freaking killing it? ‘Yeah, man, you go do you. You might want to learn how to tell a story because your career is not going to last very long during the stuff that you’re doing.'”

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.
