One of the most important and best known characters of the entire world pro-wrestling scene, responds to the name of The Undertaker, sacred monster of the discipline who for exactly 30 years worked in the rings of the McMahon company, until his complete retirement arrived in the ‘2020 edition of the Survivor Series, the same ppv in which it had debuted 3 decades earlier.
After leaving the wrestling world of wrestling, several great protagonists of the WWE and beyond, have sang the praises of the character staged for years by Mark Calaway, among athletes, colleagues, friends and fans who have always loved and idolized him, but with many former members of the WWE crew who lately have also accused the Deadman, who has always been respectful of everyone, but who in the past has had several differences with many in the federation locker room, as he was a very strong character even in the backstage.
In his latest interview with PTM’s Vinny Vegas, the well-known wrestler of the old ECW, Sabu, also known for his past in the WWE rings of McMahon, wanted to shoot zero on The Undertaker and the many historical WWE athletes, considered too soft by the legendary extreme athlete.
Referring precisely to the Deadman, Sabu said: “I think it’s okay to be a little rough and a little stiff and that should require some respect. I never loved wrestlers who were too light. The Undertaker, he was way too soft, you didn’t even feel it.
If you were too stiff with him, he played the victim and got you fired. But if you are stiff with me, I do not get fired, I tell you to take it slower or I will answer you in the rhymes. The top guys in WWE, if you’re too stiff, they’ll do anything to get you fired.”
According to the legendary ECW athlete, therefore, in WWE the unwritten rule would apply that you must never be stiff, under penalty of dismissal by express request of the top athletes of the federation.
Vince Russo: “I hope Jeff Hardy’s career is over”
Jeff Hardy was released from WWE last week after refusing to go to rehab to fix his known problems.
On December 4th, during a live event in Texas, Cameron’s 44-year-old left the ring in the middle of the match causing him to lose track of him. The three-time world champion has received a large number of messages in recent days, between those asking him to start a new adventure in AEW and those suggesting instead to take a break from wrestling.
The dream of many fans is to see the ‘Charismatic Enigma’ in All Elite Wrestling alongside his brother Matt, with the aim of perhaps challenging the Young Bucks. Jeff will not be able to enter the ring for a period of 90 days, after which he will be free to sign with other companies.
In a long interview with Sportskeeda, former WWE and WCW writer Vince Russo expressed his opinion of Jeff Hardy. Vince Russo said: “I do not want to sound cynical, but I hope that Jeff Hardy’s career is over. He has a lot of money, a beautiful family and it’s time to take care of his health.
These guys love to fight and perform in front of the public, but you need to have the intelligence to understand when is the right time to stop. I wasn’t like that. I didn’t feel the obsessive need to go back to being a writer.”
Jeff has had to live with pain for most of his career. “I spoke to his former colleague Al Snow and he told me that Hardy had serious back problems. He suffered tremendously after every single match. Experiencing such intense and constant pain affects the rest of your life.
You have to perform the next day, but you can’t sleep due to the pain. Doing all this for years and years has heavily influenced Jeff’s life.”
