The Undertaker is one of the most legendary wrestlers to ever step foot in the ring, and this year his legacy will be cemented when The Deadman is finally inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.
Chris Jericho recently discussed his early days in WWE during an appearance on the Kurt Angle Show, and he noted that he ended up with some backstage heat after he interrupted The Undertaker’s promo and called him boring.
“My second promo, I called Undertaker boring. I said, ‘You’re boring.’ And the sad, terrible thing is, he had just, we laugh about it till this day, he had just done this super long, f**king boring promo about taking Big Show to the desert. To try and teach him how to be tough and feeding him scorpion meat and drinking water out of a puddle, and it just went on and on and on.
I was supposed to cut him off and call him boring, but this night, he really was boring. What was supposed to get heat, a lot of people were like, ‘Well, we can’t argue with that.’ And I was too dumb to realize it, so that got me heat.”
The former Undisputed Champion apparently rubbed people the wrong way when he first arrived in WWE, and he also talked about having legit heat with one of the company’s top stars which you can get more on here.
The Undertaker will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame on Friday, April 1st. Stay tuned for more updates as they become available.
