World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) considers the Undertaker as god. He is probably one of the most iconic characters in the history of professional wrestling. However, ex-WWE creative Vince Russo has recently revealed that both him and the Undertaker had tension between them.
Since 1990, many wrestlers have come and gone in WWE, but it was the Undertaker who has consistently maintained his headline status within the company. But that didn’t stop the dead man from having a heated relationship with Russo.
Russo claims the he came to know about this after he left WWE. According to him, the Undertaker has claimed of being used aggressively even when injured. However, the word has not come from the Phenom’s mouth, but that of Terry Taylor’s.
“I found out though Terry Taylor that I had a bit of heat with Taker. Terry said to me ‘he told me he always asked him to work when he was hurt. You would expect him to work when he was hurt.” Russo said, as reported by Wrestling Inc.
Russo maintained that whenever he asked the Undertaker of any injuries, the dead man used to deny of any. This is the reason Ruso was hurt when he came to know about the Undertaker’s feelings towards him.
“The boys would never tell you if they were hurt because they were afraid of losing their spot.” Russo added.
However, Russo has claimed that he still has respect for the legend and considers him to be one of the most respected professionals in the WWE locker room.
The Undertaker has been booked to face Shane McMahon at the upcoming WWE WrestleMania 32. Speculations suggest that this will be the final time when the audience will get to see him wrestle at a live event.
So if the rumors of the Undertaker’s retirement are true, then post-WrestleMania, the wrestling industry will witness the end of an era.
