The Undertaker says it's tough to enjoy WWE's current product: There's too much pretty & not enough substance
In a recent interview, retired WWE legend The Undertaker spoke candidly about how it's been tough for him to enjoy the current WWE product as a fan because it's changed so much and is kind of soft.
While The Undertaker bid farewell to his monumental WWE career by retiring last year with his classic Boneyard Match against AJ Styles at Wrestlemania 36, it doesn't mean that his love for wrestling has suddenly diminished. The legendary wrestler continues to support WWE by watching it as a fan, albeit, it isn't the easiest thing for Mark Calaway (real name) to do.
During an in-depth interview with Joe Rogan for the latter's podcast The Joe Rogan Experience, Taker was asked if he follows the current WWE product. On this, the 55-year-old wrestler confessed, "I try. It's tough right now for me because the product has changed so much and it's kind of soft. [Rogan asks, 'Are you going to get in trouble for saying that?'] Probably. I'll probably piss a lot of people off but they need to hear it. It is what it is. But to the young guys, 'Oh, he's a bitter old guy.' I'm not bitter. I did my time, I'm good. I walked away when I wanted to walk away," via Ryan Satin's Twitter.
"I just think the product is a little soft. There's obviously guys here and there that have an edge to them, but there's too much pretty and not enough substance I think right now," Taker added.
