The Undertaker responds to criticism

The Undertaker is on the list of the most iconic performers of all time. His gimmick allowed him to transcend wrestling and become a global role model. The Digger spent nearly 30 years in WWE, engaging in memorable feuds with some of the greatest champions of the modern era.

The Deadman officially retired from the 2020 Survivor Series, not before receiving a beautiful tribute from friends and colleagues. Shortly before WrestleMania 38, the 'Phenom' was inducted with full merit into the WWE Hall of Fame by Vince McMahon himself.

During his speech, Taker mentioned the most important superstars in his career (Shawn Michaels and Triple H above all). Many fans and insiders were surprised by Undertaker's choice not to mention a sacred monster like Mick Foley.

In a lengthy interview granted to 'Bleacher Report', Taker wanted to respond to the criticisms.

The Undertaker is a WWE Hall of Famer

“I gave an honest speech, in which I said everything I wanted to say. I'm sorry not to have mentioned all the performers who have been important to my career, but it was not possible for reasons of time.

I decided to focus mainly on Shawn Michaels and Triple H” - explained The Undertaker. “I've talked many times about Mick Foley over the years, go and reread my interviews. I love it, I'm serious. What we did in the ring will never be forgotten by fans.

Edge also comes to mind, which I didn't mention in my talk. If someone is offended, I'm sorry” - Taker added. The Deadman also spoke of Stephanie McMahon, who took over from her father Vince about her in command of the WWE.

“Stephanie is an exceptional woman and she will prove it in the coming months. This new role of her fits her perfectly. I like her because she is a balanced person, able to see the big picture. Her steady hand of hers is exactly what WWE needs right now”.

In a recent video on WWE's YouTube channel, The Undertaker revealed that Ole Anderson told him of WCW that no one would pay to see him: "I'd been with WCW now about eight or nine months, and it was time to start renegotiating my contract.

I was happy there. I liked being in WCW. So I got called in and Ole Anderson was there, who was booking territory at the time. They basically offered me the exact same deal that I'd just worked on. And I was like, 'Okay, I was hoping for just a little bit of a bump.'

Ole looks right at me and he goes, 'Mark, you're a great athlete, but no one's ever gonna pay money to watch you wrestle.' "
