We now know what The Undertaker (Mark Calaway) told Bray Wyatt on Raw XXX a few weeks ago.
Speaking to Canada’s SportsNet about his career and his highly successful Undertaker 1 deadMAN Show, Taker let the cat out of the bag about what transpired between the two when they crossed paths in the middle of the ring.
“There’s obviously a huge amount of comparisons between his character and mine. He’s his own guy. He’s his own character. I don’t think it’s fair to him to compare what he does to what I did and in the big scheme of things, obviously, it’s in the same supernatural genre…I just let him know that my phone’s always on and if he needs to talk to me about things or run things by me, that’s cool. I would be more than glad to share my experiences with him and hopefully shine some light on maybe questions that he has moving forward. It was a cool moment and it did exactly what I thought it would do,” said Calaway smiling.
During the interview Calaway also admitted that he does follow the current WWE product and praised The Bloodline angle in particular.
“Yeah, I still I still watch the product. It’s kind of a no brainer. I’m watching what Bray does. The Bloodline story is just phenomenal. I’d be remiss if I didn’t mentioned Sami Zayn and the job that he’s done in that story but that Bloodline and Sami Zayn story is so compelling. It’s so well done. It’s what we do. That’s what we do at our best,” he said.
Next weekend not only will the WWE be presenting Elimination Chamber in Montreal but Taker will be staging his Undertaker 1 deadMAN Show there February 16th at the L’Olympia. The Undertaker explained how he approaches each and every one of those shows.
“I do put a considerable amount of pressure on myself to always try and deliver…Sometimes it’s really organic. The first show that I did in Nashville at SummerSlam was really, really good and then I’ll go to Cardiff and that thing was off the charts. You don’t want to do the same material so you kind of start thinking of different things and you tend to mess up. Sometimes you mess up the formula overthinking things and I think I kind of did that in Philadelphia. I wasn’t real happy but all the reviews and everything were great but to me, it didn’t feel like it flowed the way I wanted it to,” he confessed.
