Wrestling legend comments on The Undertaker

The Undertaker has had an unrivaled impact on this business. The 'Deadman' has made its way into the hearts of millions of fans around the world, also thanks to his iconic gimmick and his infamous 'Streak' at Wrestlemania.

In addition to being a seven-time world champion, he was the winner of the 2007 Royal Rumble match, making him the first athlete in history to win the royal brawl by entering last. The Digger played his last match at WrestleMania 36, ​​when he faced AJ Styles in the prime-time main event.

Within the docu-series 'The Last Ride', the 'Phenom' admitted that he could no longer cope with the rhythms required by professional wrestling and did not want to ruin his image. His official retirement took place at the 2020 Survivor Series, where his legendary career had begun 30 years earlier.

On February 18, 2022, the 'Phenom' was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by Vince Mcmahon himself. Guest on the latest edition of the 'DDP Snake Pit' podcast, Jake 'The Snake' Roberts took credit for 'launching' The Undertaker.

"Without me there would have been no The Undertaker" - Roberts began bluntly. “Maybe there wouldn't even be Stone Cold Steve Austin and Shawn Michaels. I contributed to the success of the Road Warriors and I could name many other legends.

If they would have done the same without me? Maybe yes, but I have accelerated their rise ”- added Jake. Recently, Mark Henry debunked a great myth about Taker: “The Digger has always had impeccable behavior both in and out of the ring.

He demanded respect, but he gave it in turn. There are many athletes for whom respect is a one-way thing. They want you to respect them and be afraid of them, but Taker thought differently. Mark wanted to be respected and he reciprocated that respect.

He was loved by everyone backstage." Jake Roberts has explained why he told former WWE Chairman Vince McMahon about his plans to leave the promotion in 1992. On the DDP Snake Pit podcast, the 67-year-old recalled how he thought he would be a good addition to McMahon's creative team: "What the fans didn't know was the night before [WrestleMania 8] I'd had a meeting with Vince McMahon and told him that I was quitting," Roberts said.

"He had broken too many promises to me. He had promised me a certain position that I wanted. Creative, yeah, because I know how good I am at that."
