Former WWE star discusses his experience with The Undertaker

Wrestling fans will surely remember the name of Chris Hughes. The latter signed his first contract with WWE back in 1993, after having spent some time in the WCW. Mr. Hughes briefly returned to the Stamford company in 1997, as Triple H's bodyguard.

Two years later, he made one last short 'stint' as a partner of rising star Chris Jericho. In the collective imagination, Hughes is mostly associated with the feud with The Undertaker during the early years of the Deadman's career.

During a recent interview with 'The Hannibal TV' aired on YouTube, Chris was thrilled by recalling his famous 'casket match' with the Phenom. Taker finally left wrestling last year at the Survivor Series, where his legendary epic had begun 30 years earlier.

“The Undertaker and I went around the various cities of the United States and played numerous casket matches. I want to point out that what we were using was an authentic coffin, it had the lining and all.

For me it was a dream to work with the Gravedigger” - Chris Hughes said. “I would also like to thank Vince McMahon for giving me the opportunity to fight with that legend, he showed that he trusted me. There were many stars who would have given their lives for such a chance, but he chose to bet on me.

I was happy to be in the main event of the evening almost always, this is the best thing for a professional wrestler. When you manage to electrify a crowd of 20,000 people, it means that you have reached the pinnacle of this business," he added.

Barring unlikely twists, The Undertaker's last fight will therefore remain the controversial 'Boneyard match' against AJ Styles at WrestleMania 36. On the occasion of the 2020 Survivor Series, absolute phenomena such as Ric Flair, Shawn Michaels, Triple H, Kane, Big Show, JBL, Booker T, Rikishi, The Godfather and Kevin Nash paid tribute to one of the greatest ever.

WWE WrestleMania 37 is rapidly approaching with just a few days to go before the showcase of immortals is once again upon us. In addition to the matches and memorable moments that WrestleMania offers, many fans are already anticipating what stage and set WWE will present this year for the grandest stage of them all.

As WWE's biggest show of the year inside of a stadium, WrestleMania is usually accompanied by an extravagant and larger than life stage and set combination.
