Damian Priest pays tribute to The Undertaker

The Undertaker can undoubtedly be counted among the greatest icons in the history of pro-wrestling. The 'Deadman' has given birth to a legendary career while remaining faithful to the WWE, despite the sirens from other companies willing to fill him with money to convince him to leave Vince McMahon.

It is difficult to list all the epic moments that saw the Gravedigger as the protagonist, who spent 30 years in this business without ever holding back in the face of adversity. Barring sensational and unlikely twists, his last fight will remain the 'Boneyard Match' against AJ Styles at WrestleMania 36.

Within the docu-series 'The Last Ride', Taker admitted that his physique was now unable to sustain the rhythms of current wrestling and that retirement was imminent. The 'Phenom' officially hung up its boots last year at the Survivor Series, not before receiving a touching tribute from friends and colleagues.

In a recent interview granted to 'ViBe & Wrestling', Damian Priest wanted to pay homage to the Undertaker's charisma both inside and outside the ring.

Damian Priest praises The Undertaker

“Sometimes you hear it said that it would be better to never meet your heroes, as they may not be what you thought them to be.

In the case of The Undertaker, that's absolutely not true. His love of him for our business and WWE has been so great that he has contributed to indirectly improve all of our careers. He likes to help young people realize their dreams and he wants the company to remain at the top of the sector.

I've always been a huge fan of him and I was very nervous the first time I spoke to him before I realized that he is an extraordinary and humble human being as there are very few around” - said Damian Priest. 'The Archer of Infamy' also had the opportunity to train with Taker: "We have a great relationship and his skills in the ring are out of the ordinary.

He gave me a lot of advice that I treasured. He is number one both as a wrestler and as a person." The Undertaker's last match was Night One of the WrestleMania 36 pay-per-view against AJ Styles in a Boneyard Match.

The match was a cinematic match that was filmed during the COVID-19 Pandemic. The Undertaker came out victorious following interference from Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson. The Phenom's last match in the ring came at the Super Showdown event a few months prior, as he won the Tuwaiq Trophy Gauntlet.
