Ahead of his induction into the WWE Hall of Fame, The Undertaker has revealed which of his many rivalries he believes to be the greatest.
The Undertaker is set to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame on April 1st, capping off his legendary career.
For over three decades, The Undertaker clashed with a who’s who of iconic WWE Superstars, including the likes of Shawn Michaels, Mick Foley, The Rock, and Kane.
During an appearance on Sports Guys Talking Wrestling, ‘The Phenom’ reflected on these rivalries. When asked which storyline he believes stands above the rest, he said it would be the years-long saga with his on-screen brother Kane which began in 1997.
“I am going to say probably the battles with Kane, I think. It was just, I think a storyline that people, whether you were a wrestling fan or you weren’t, you understood just because of sibling rivalries. And I think people identified with that,” he said. “And Kane was always such a physically dominant athlete, that he always brought the best out of me. So I am going to go with the Brothers Of Destruction.”
Elsewhere in the interview, The Undertaker also discussed WWE’s developmental brand, NXT, saying it is a vehicle to jump-start the careers of young stars.
“Athletes are athletes, but what separates whether you are a sports entertainer or you are a star is that ability to connect with your audience. NXT is a great vehicle to get these guys jump-started. But you’re right, they are continuing to push the envelope of what they can do athletically and physically. It is actually quite amazing because it’s like a video game in real life.”
