The Undertaker Believes Social Media Makes Telling Storylines Harder

Social media is affecting how fans engage with storylines, according to The Undertaker.

The Dead Man claims that due to a “huge disconnect,” it makes it harder to deliver storylines and leaves fans less invested in the action.

Speaking on the latest edition of Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson, The Undertaker shared his feelings on how the use of social media has altered the interest of fans from what they see on TV, to focus more on gossip and away toward the action taking place off camera.

“Our fan base in general, they’re more concerned now with what’s happening behind the scenes and not so much what’s going on in the ring.

They want the dirt. It’s like anything else in our society. It’s all social media driven. Everybody puts their life out there.”

“For me, it’s kind of a huge disconnect, but it is what it is and that’s where we’re at. I don’t necessarily like it, but there’s nothing I can do about it. It’s just the way it is. It really makes things harder to have good storylines and have people invested.”

The Undertaker also spoke about his A&E documentary that offered viewers revealing insight into his Hall of Fame career.

Despite his claims, fans have been discussing comparisons between The Dead Man and current WWE Superstar Bray Wyatt, following the pair’s interaction at Raw XXX.

Since retiring from in-ring action, The Undertaker has appeared on numerous podcasts and media, initially when promoting The Last Ride WWE Documentary. He is now taking part in on stage speaking events, the latest of which took place last week in Montreal, during the build up to Saturday night’s Elimination Chamber.
