Vince Russo takes a shot at The Undertaker

The past couple of years have been very complicated for WWE. The effects of the global pandemic have also hit the sports entertainment business, forcing Vince McMahon's company to take a series of drastic measures to stay alive.

The Stamford-based federation has had to release a large number of talent and insiders behind the scenes, as well as experiencing a drastic drop in ratings. The simultaneous rise of All Elite Wrestling certainly did not help WWE, which saw two authentic giants of the caliber of CM Punk and Bryan Danielson blown away.

In the latest edition of 'Legion of RAW' on Sportskeeda, former WWE and WCW writer Vince Russo spoke at length about the company's inability to forge new global icons. The Undertaker has retired to Survivor Series 2020 after a 30-year career, while John Cena is increasingly established in the world of cinema.

“Who did legends like The Undertaker and John Cena pass the baton to? These guys didn't help the young talents stand out. They just disappeared. Taker retired due to age, while Cena has now become one of Hollywood's most popular actors.

When Vince McMahon needs big stars for an event in Saudi Arabia or WrestleMania, he offers them big bucks and they get back into the ring. Often and willingly, they take the place of a full-time wrestler in the show's main event.

The same concept is also applicable to The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin” - explained Vince Russo.

The latter also spoke of Mickie James’s return to the Royal Rumble: “Vince McMahon has no intention of signing agreements with other wrestling federations.

Mickie returned to WWE for a different reason. The company wanted to be forgiven for the way he treated her when she was released. I'm referring to the story of the infamous garbage bag that his stuff was put into. This is why they decided to bring it back." The Undertaker is undoubtedly one of the greatest WWE Superstars ever to step foot inside the squared circle.

A career that began in 1990 lasted a massive three decades, during which The Phenom earned the fans' respect for his unparalleled dedication to the business. With WrestleMania 38 set to take place in Dallas this year, fans want to see The Phenom take his rightful place in the WWE Hall of Fame. His reported appearance at Royal Rumble this weekend might have something to do with that.
