Kurt also revealed how the same equation had always worked for the Undertaker and how he would call the whole thing from the comeback to the finish.

When asked about how was it to work with The Undertaker for the first time, Kurt began,“he calls everything up until the come back and finish you know you just have to listen to him and trust him and I did and every time I worked with Undertaker he has the same equation in every match he shines on you he works your arm um you know he does uh the jump off the top rope”.



He added, “so he work your arm and then when he’s done shining he ‘ll he’ll he’ll have you take his knee out and you know it’s usually he’ll run into the corner with a high boot and mess and I’ll move and he’ll hurt his leg and it’s the same equation every time but it works you know for him it was perfect so uh you know that’s the way it always went with the undertaker but he called the whole thing up until the comeback and finish”.

He mentioned, “this match it was an eight-minute match it was more of an elevation match for me and an enhancement match for him because I was an upcoming talent and it was a good win for Undertaker and for me it was my first time going into a pay-per-view wrestling a main event wrestler.”

“It wasn’t the main event but it was a main event wrestler so it helped me dramatically to be paired up with him but it also helped him because he got a good win.”

Kurt also stated that he was unaware of the fact that the plan for him was to main event SummerSlam. It came as a surprise to him. He only got to know that probably two weeks before SummerSlam.
