The Undertaker shared his perspective on comments made by Triple H regarding the challenges wrestlers face when transitioning to WWE while speaking during a recent episode of his Six Feet Under podcast.

Triple H had stirred up some conversation by highlighting that many wrestlers opt for other promotions over WWE due to their lighter schedules. He expressed his stance saying, “When I see people coming out of trying to make it, and then they pick a job where, well, they work less, the schedule is lighter, then I’m like, ‘I’m glad I didn’t pick you.’ If you’re not in it for the grind, at that point early in your career, you have no business being here.”

The Undertaker responded to Triple H’s viewpoint by acknowledging its truthfulness. He remarked, “Somebody asked Triple H about other talent coming in from other places. It was so true, but I never heard anybody really say it.” The Undertaker recognized the historical trend where wrestlers who achieved stardom in promotions like WCW often struggled to replicate that success in WWE.

However, he refuted the idea of any deliberate agenda to hinder talent, asserting, “That’s just crap. If you draw money… obviously, you have to be put in a situation to be able to draw money, but you have to work within that WWE frame of mind.”


Undertaker addressed the prevalent misconception among fans that success elsewhere automatically translates to success in WWE, emphasizing the need for acclimation to the WWE system. “Just because you were a big star here or there, doesn’t mean you’re going to fit into the WWE system without a little bit of acclimation time. That’s what most ‘smart marks’ don’t get,” he explained.

When his co-host hinted at potential biases from the management hindering certain wrestlers, The Undertaker swiftly dismissed the notion, deeming it “the stupidest thing” he’s ever heard. He stressed, “You don’t bring people in to hold them down. You bring people in to make the product better.”

Highlighting examples like Booker T, who smoothly transitioned from WCW to WWE and found success, The Undertaker underscored that with the right attitude and commitment, wrestlers can indeed thrive within the WWE framework.
