The Undertaker, whose real name is Mark William Calaway, joined Ariel Helwani of BT Sport to reflect on his 30-year WWE career. He explained why his iconic character will never make a comeback and finally revealed his Mount Rushmore of the gretest wrestlers in history, among other things.
Undertaker, 57, left himself out of his top four list and notably snubbed legendary wrestlers such as Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and John Cena.
Andre The Giant, Ric Flair, Stone Cold Steve Austin and Hulk Hogan are the greatest wrestlers to have ever lived, according to The Deadman.
He stated that his measuring stick of greatness and success was the wrestler’s “effect on the industry.”
The Mount Rushmore topic was one of several things divulged during the 45-minute interview. One headline-grabber was The Undertaker admitting he would have rather had Roman Reigns end his undefeated streak at WrestleMania instead of Brock Lesnar.
The Undertaker is done and throws shade at Brock Lesnar
Undertaker said that Reigns would have appreciated the win more than Lesner, who was already a huge star in the company.
Besides throwing slight shade at Lesnar, The Undertaker said that he will never return as his character, who many expected at his RAW XXX appearance.
Calaway says he doesn’t think it’s proper to continue portraying The Undertaker now that he’s a public speaker.
The Undertaker definitely deserves a spot on the WWE Mount Rushmore, especially based on his metrics, but he’s too humble to ever admit to that.
