Undertaker Talks To Yahoo! Sports (November 2020)

Undertaker Weighs In On WWE Putting Titles On Smaller Wrestlers & Big Wrestlers Who Can’t Work

With the WWE Survivor Series 2020 pay-per-view featuring his “Final Farewell” tribute drawing closer, The Undertaker continues to make the media rounds to promote his special 30th anniversary celebration.

One of the most recent media stops saw “The Deadman” speak with Yahoo! Sports for an interview, during which he spoke about a number of topics, including his thoughts on some of the smaller wrestlers to reach championship status in the promotion formerly referred to within the business as “The Land of the Giants.”

Featured below is an excerpt from the new Yahoo! Sports interview with Undertaker, where “The Phenom” talks about some of the smaller WWE champions over the years.

“It doesn’t necessarily have to be a big guy big guy, but we have stretched the realms of reality sometimes with some of our champions. When you see some of the guys that they have to work with, it’s like, OK, I get it, we’re sports entertainment — BUT. My whole goal when I went to the ring, I don’t care if you’re smart, not smart, whatever, when I’m in the ring I want people thinking, ‘This dude’s legit.’ And if I hit somebody, I want people in the front row going, ‘No, dude, he hit him. I don’t care what happened in the match before, he just lit him up. This is on.’ So it’s hard because we’re kind of starting to get a little bit of an influx of big guys, but it’s just kind of where– because there’s so much new talent, you can’t put the title on a guy just because he’s big. And back in the day, man, we had tons of big guys that could go and could carry it and do that.”
