Even though the WWE is a professional wrestling promotion, some of its professional wrestling characters are legends are people outside of wrestling know them as well. One of the most well-known wrestlers of all time is The Undertaker.
The Undertaker made his WWE debut in the early 90s and since then has become of one of the greatest, if not the greatest wrestling character of all-time. He has wrestled some of the best wrestlers of both past and present and has continued performing well even after so many years.
He appeared at the College GameDay recently. A non-WWE appearance by The Undertaker is very rare. Triple H took this opportunity to speak with Sport Illustrated about The Undertaker and WWE’s power to attract an audience.
"There are certain people that transcend their industry and become cultural icons, and The Undertaker transcends the WWE," Triple H stated. "This was Vince's vision at WrestleMania I: the integration of pop culture.
So this was an opportunity for us to reach out to new fans, to reach out to lax fans, to reach out to everybody and create that buzz about what we do." "WWE has crossover appeal. Whether you're a fan or not, people all over the globe know who The Undertaker is," Triple H continued.
The Undertaker recently made a comeback in the WWE and he will be performing for the company for a few more years it seems.
