WWE Hall of Famer The Undertaker opened up about the profound impact of his program with Giant Gonzalez in the early 90s.
Expressing deep regret in an interview on the Notsam Wrestling Podcast with Sam Roberts, The Undertaker revealed that the ordeal had taken a significant toll on his career, lamenting the physical and mental strain it inflicted. Undertaker disclosed:
That whole thing took years off my career, I’d be in much better shape now if I could’ve skipped that one program.

Despite his desire to be mentioned in the same breath as these wrestling icons, he acknowledged that it was an unattainable feat during his feud with Gonzalez.
It was survival every night trying to figure out what he could do,
And it took me to try and make chicken salad out of chicken crap.
