Sometime back, The Undertaker appeared on ‘Cold As Balls’ hosted by Hollywood star Kevin Hart. In the interview, he shared about his daughter, Kaia Calaway, being upset with her father for defeating John Cena at WrestleMania 34.

Taker said, “So few years back I’m wrestling John Cena right and it’s gonna be at WrestleMania. So we’re doing this thing on TV where Cena is just badmouthing me right. He’s trying to get me wrestling him at Mania, and I don’t want a part of it. My daughter loves him. My daughter loves Cena.” 

The WWE Hall of Famer added, “So we eventually have a match. She sat in front row with her mom. It was a real quick deal. I squash him in like five minutes. I just kicked the sh*t out of him and I had him in (tombstone) and pinned him. Then I’m looking at my daughter looking for that, you know that ‘Yah, yah!’ and she’s giving me this (slowly does a thumbs down impression). I’m like what the h*ll is that (starts laughing).”

The match against Cena was the most anticipated one that night. There was a long-term story building to this feud, and Taker himself was interested in it. However, this match became extra special for him as he was facing her daughter’s favorite WWE superstar.

Taker might have entered the ring with the expectations of his daughter being happy with the fact that he had a match with Cena and would cheer him. Surprisingly, this didn’t happen, and Kaia was sad about the outcome.
