The Undertaker talks about his legacy

In the recent documentary by WWE “The Last Ride”, the Undertaker opened up about one of his biggest fears before stepping into the WWE ring. Taker said:

“Regardless of my injuries, regardless of my age, regardless of everything that’s happened, if I’m on the card, there’s some young guy that’s making a lot of the shows through the year that may not be on that card. So it’s my duty to make sure that it is worth putting me on the card. No one will probably say anything to my face if I stunk it up, but I would know. And you know, that’s one of my biggest fears, is kind of becoming a parody of myself.”

“I always think this way, it would kill me to know that some dad who watched me when he was young has to turn to his son and go, ‘ man, he is moving kind of slow now. But, you should have seen him 10-15 years ago. I know the reality is that I have slowed down, but still I try to bring the best package that I can on that night.”
