WWE Hall Of Famer Admits Preference For Chasing, Not Winning, Championships

In the world of wrestling, securing a World Championship is often seen as the ultimate goal, the pinnacle of achievement. However, for one WWE Hall of Famer, the pursuit of the title held a significance far beyond the gold itself.

WWE Hall of Famer The Undertaker, disclosed on his podcast, Six Feet Under With Mark Calaway, that his character thrived not on the glory of holding the championship, but on the exhilarating pursuit of it throughout his illustrious career.

Obviously, it’s so rewarding to have the title and know that the company feels like you’re the guy or whatnot but for me, it was always much more fun getting right there and then figuring out how they’re going to just keep it out of my grasp. My character being what it was, it just really never needed the title. Obviously, I’m very proud of my title runs or my the number of times that I won the title but it was always the chase.

Reflecting on his wrestling journey, Undertaker acknowledged the unique appeal of his “Phenom” persona to the fans. However, his focus evolved from merely presenting the character to delivering the best match possible.

I realised the character was such a special thing that I just knew early on that I was an attraction like you said, I was Andre [The Giant] in a sense, especially after I did the American Badass run which allowed me to work a little more and a little differently. And then it was like, yeah I definitely want to have the best match on the card, which early on wasn’t necessarily the most important thing to have the best match, it was the most important thing was to present that character the best way that I could because that’s what people were coming to see.

Why Was The Undertaker Not Impressed With The Recent WWE Draft?

The Undertaker said that the recent WWE draft was missing deals being made for Superstars between the brand general managers. Undertaker likened the draft to that of the NFL where teams make deals for players and trade their players and that if WWE employed that as a tactic it could make the draft more entertaining to watch.
