The Undertaker – “The WWE Product Has Changed So Much, It’s Soft”

Last updated

WWE legend and sure-fire Hall of Famer The Undertaker recently appeared on arguably the biggest podcast in the world. ‘Taker was the latest guest on The Joe Rogan Experience, with The Deadman answering a number of questions on the Spotify exclusive podcast.

One of the topics Undertaker discussed was the current WWE product. ‘Taker was asked by Joe Rogan if he enjoys today’s WWE programming. “I try,” Undertaker replied on the The Joe Rogan Experience, “It’s tough right now, for me, because the product has changed so much. It’s kinda soft.”

“I’ll probably piss a lot of people off but they need to hear it” Undertaker continued. “To the young guys, ‘oh, he’s a bitter old guy.’ I’m not bitter, I did my time. I walked away. I just think the product is a little soft. There are guys here and there who have an edge to them, but there’s too much pretty and not enough edge.”

“They’re trying to put something out for everybody” Undertaker stated. “Some guys are into the comedy sh*t and other guys want to see more hardcore fighting. One of the big things that happened is the generation before, we all got old at the same time. There weren’t enough guys to work with the young guys. I can give my theories on what you should do, but until you can get in the ring and do it, it doesn’t translate.”

Undertaker would then finish by saying that maybe modern performers listen too much to internet fans. “Then, you also have too many people who are like, ‘these guys on the Internet think I’m good.’ Okay, well, you can listen to them or you can listen to somebody who has been there and done it. There was not enough merging of the young and the new talent. When it was me, Steve Austin, Triple H, The Rock, Shawn Michaels we were working together and making money, then we just aged out and it left young guys working with young guys and the product changed.”
