The Undertaker Stands With Triple H After Controversial Comments

The Undertaker

The Undertaker thinks Triple H was speaking the truth when he spoke about other wrestling stars not necessarily having what it takes to succeed in WWE.

Triple H recently hit out at stars who didn’t want to be part of “the grind” and says those in other companies won’t necessarily make it in WWE.

Many believed The Game’s words were a thinly veiled dig at Will Ospreay who has been open about his reasons for choosing to sign with AEW rather than try his hand in WWE. Ospreay hit back with a shot of his own at Triple H but now the AEW star says he won’t lower himself to WWE’s level in the future.

The Undertaker Hits Out At “Stupid” Theory

Speaking on his Six Feet Under podcast, The Undertaker agreed with Triple H’s assessment of talent from other companies not making it in WWE and rules out there ever being any vendetta to stop a talent from succeeding in the company:

Somebody asked Triple H about other talent coming in from other places. It was so true, but I never heard anybody really say it. There was a time like back in the day when guys came in from WCW and were big stars in WCW, and not such big stars when they got to WWE. Of course, people always want to point fingers, ‘There was this vendetta.’ That’s just crap.

If you draw money…obviously, you have to be put in a situation to be able to draw money, but you have to work within that WWE frame of mind. That’s the thing that he was trying to say. Just because you were a big star here or there, doesn’t mean you’re going to fit into the WWE system without a little bit of acclimation time. That’s what most ‘smart marks’ don’t get. They’re like, ‘He was this huge star at this company, but now at WWE…’

The Undertaker also shot down a popular theory brought up by his co-host that WWE has held stars down that have come from elsewhere as the boss didn’t like them:

Why on earth, that’s the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard. Why would you waste anyone’s time just to bring them in, just to hold them down? It’s ridiculous, it’s the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard. You don’t bring people in to hold them down. You bring people in to make the product better.
