Even though ‘The Phenom’ acknowledged that it could be evolution, it still doesn’t suit him. To him, a locker room should be a place where everyone was ready to handle anything thrown their way and not be concerned with elements such as looks.

In the same interview, The Undertaker revealed he finds it difficult to watch WWE because the product and Superstars have become soft. He doesn’t specifically mention anybody by name.

Xavier Woods did not sit back. He responded to Taker by providing an insight into his journey throughout the years where Superstars from other generations have helped him grow.

Not only did Xavier Woods stand up for his generation of Superstars, but even his fans supported him.

It takes a lot of courage to respond to the words of someone as legendary as The Undertaker.

The Undertaker could have made a better judgement

The Undertaker may have been a tad bit hard in judging the current generation. However, he’s got his own reasons.

Taker did not have a simple journey when he pursued wrestling as a career during his college days. He trained on front yards, waited at lobbies for bookings, and sold off almost everything he owned to achieve his goal.

It’s obvious that every generation will have their own story to tell. In fact, it’s possible the generation which follows will have elements that the current generation will find flawed.

The Undertaker’s first meeting with Xavier Woods

The first time Xavier Woods met The Undertaker was at WrestleMania 29. He was a part of Taker’s entrance as one of the druids who were reaching out to him from hell.

He detailed his brief experience with Taker in an interview alongside other Superstars.

It’s clear that the generation he called “soft” is the same one that was thrilled to work with him in WWE.
