The Undertaker thinks it isn’t fair for people to compare Bray Wyatt to him even though they are both supernatural characters to some degree.
At the Raw XXX show celebrating 30 years of Raw on January 23rd, The Undertaker choked LA Knight before tossing him over to Wyatt, who dropped Knight with a Sister Abigail neckbreaker. The Deadman whispered something into Wyatt’s ear after that. Wyatt said he won’t reveal what he was told in that moment.
The Undertaker and Wyatt have a long history going back to their WrestleMania 31 match in 2015 which saw Taker pick up the win. They had other interactions in the ring too. The Undertaker has also likely known Wyatt since he was a kid since Wyatt’s father Irwin R. Schyster is somebody that The Undertaker wrestled many times in the 1990s as well.
In 2020, The Undertaker called it a career after an incredible 30-year run in WWE that was unlike anybody else in the history of the company. The Undertaker is a WWE Hall of Famer that is rightly considered one of the biggest stars of all time.
As for Wyatt, he returned to WWE in October 2022 after being fired for over a year and Wyatt just picked up his first televised win at the Royal Rumble when he beat LA Knight in a Pitch Black Match.
During an interview on Sportsnet’s Tim & Friends (a popular Canadian sports talk show) to promote his upcoming one-man show in Montreal prior to Elimination Chamber, The Undertaker addressed the comparisons between his character and Bray Wyatt.
“There’s, obviously, a huge amount of comparisons between his character and mine. He’s his own guy. He’s his own character. I don’t think it’s fair to him to compare what he does to what I did. In the big scheme of things, it’s in the same supernatural genre, but it’s 2023, and he’s doing his own thing, but I can appreciate — I can see what he’s trying to do.”
As he continued, The Undertaker made it known that he let Wyatt know he is there for advice any time Wyatt needs it.
“I just let him know, too, that my phone’s always on, and if he needs to talk to me about things or run things by me, that’s cool. I would be more than glad to share my experiences with him and hopefully shine some light on questions that he has moving forward. So yeah, it was a cool moment, and it did exactly what I thought it would do.”
