The Undertaker Doubts He’s Been Replaced In WWE Role

The Undertaker WWE

The Undertaker was long seen as the locker room leader in WWE, doling out praise and punishments as far as the other WWE stars went.

The Undertaker is universally respected both for his in-ring talents that saw him at the top of WWE for thirty years as well as his role behind the scenes. In the wild days of the Attitude Era and beyond the WWE Hall of Famer was considered the locker room leader and he even acted as judge during the infamous “Wrestler Court” trials with nobody questioning his decisions.

But with The Undertaker’s in-ring career now behind him and a different generation of stars in the WWE locker room, has anybody else set themselves up to take that role?

The Undertaker Thinks WWE Locker Room Now Self-Policed

Speaking on his Six Feet Under podcast, The Undertaker discussed the change of culture in the WWE locker room and why he doesn’t think anyone has replaced him as the de facto locker room leader:

I’m not there that often and I don’t know that there is that person. I think the whole culture has changed so much, that I think it’s kind of — I don’t know this for certain, it’s just my assumption, everything’s kind of self-policed.

If there is somebody that’s kind of screwing things up, usually everybody’s got one or two people that they’re really, really, really, really close with, but I don’t know. I don’t know if they have that one person that’s willing to assemble the group and cuss them. I say that as kind of a halfway joke. I also was the first one to pat them on the back for tearing down the house.

I don’t know. There could be [a designated locker room general], but I don’t know who that would be. The culture is really different. Most of the top guys all have buses and stay on their buses.

The Undertaker has previously said modern wrestling is missing grit which was met with some criticism from fans as well as current wrestling stars.
