Throughout this time, The Deadman has been completely dominant, both inside and outside the ring.

However, if there is one big thing we have all learned from ‘Undertaker – The Last Ride’, is that The Undertaker is actually human.

Vince Russo, the controversial WWE writer who gained notoriety during the Attitude era, recently revealed that the Undertaker would always leave it all behind in the ring.

So much so, that the Phenom would collapse as soon as he was done performing.

I saw Taker come back through that curtain and absolutely collapse on the floor. I mean, the back pain, the trauma he was going through, and the next night, we had a RAW, he would go out that curtain and you would never know, but when he came back, he literally would just collapse.

The Mythical work ethic of The Undertaker

Undertaker was an extremely dedicated professional and always made it a point to put on a great show.

He did this even at the cost of his long term health. This dedication of his is legendary and has been acknowledged by many Superstars during his time. 

The Undertaker was also a strong presence in the locker room, a leader if you will. Hence it makes perfect sense that he would be so heavily involved in setting a good example as a mentor. 

Vince Russo spoke about The Undertaker performing so well, that nobody actually understood that he was human and that he had a limited amount of energy in him.

This is the mark of a true superstar, one who isn’t afraid to empty the tank on a nightly basis.
