The Undertaker on His Matches with Giant Gonzalez
"He came in around the same time Yokozuna came in," Taker said. "He was doing a dark match in Baltimore so I see Vince standing there watching him and me and him are both watching him and the stuff that he's doing and the kicks he's throwing at 400 pounds.
I remember turning my head to Vince and saying 'Please, please, please, let me work with him first' Vince laughs, 'You'll work with him in time, but I've got somebody else in mind for you' I kid you not, coming down the hall from the other direction here comes Giant Gonzalez and Vince goes 'That's your guy'"
The Undertaker fought Gonzalez at WrestleMania 9. The match ended via DQ. Undertaker would then went on to face Gonzalez at SummerSlam. Undertaker was able to beat Gonzalez in that match which was a Rest in Peace match. "That whole thing took years off my career," Taker said.
"I would be in much better shape now if I could've skipped that one program. As physically demanding as it was, it was twice as much the mental strain because you have Bret, Yokozuna going out and having these great matches.
Obviously you want to be mentioned in the same breath as those guys and it was just not possible”. The Undertaker became a WWE legend during his mid-career.
