“Not that there’s any comparison, but I think I’m kind of taking on like The Undertaker role in the WWE for his last few years there. Where every time he does something, it’s impactful; it means something. He’s a benefit to have in the locker room. He’s a leader. He’s very experienced. He can tell guys and girls what they’re doing right and what they’re doing wrong. And it’s just a good person to have around your roster.” H/t PopCulture

Now, the kind of advice Jericho gives could majorly vary from what Taker says, but they’re both valuable veterans of the pro-wrestling industry!

However, it doesn’t seem like something Taker would be interested in considering he left WWE for a specific reason. He didn’t want to continue being in the ring because his body stopped being able to do what he could in his prime.

The Deadman didn’t want to give the fans something less than what they expected from him. Hence, he left WWE.

Additionally, The Undertaker has been loyal to WWE and Vince McMahon for three decades. It seems unlikely that he will turn towards a promotion that is directly in competition with WWE.
