“The Undertaker Would’ve Been The World Champion For A Long Time If He Was 6 Inches Shorter” – Raven

The Undertaker

During a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, WWF, WCW, ECW & TNA Veteran Raven talked about The Undertaker lengthy run in the WWF/E. Raven noted how The Undertaker’s height resulted in him not getting lengthy World Title runs during the early days of his career in the WWF.

Below is what Raven had to say:

“If he had been six inches shorter, he would have been the perennial World Champion. But at 6-foot-10, he was relegated to the monster, “Creature Feature” matches. The Undertaker only had the chance to show his skills in fights at the end of his career.

It wasn’t until near the end of his career when he finally started being able to show that he could actually work, but, by then, he wasn’t anywhere near the worker he was ten years before that. He was amazing.”

Speaking of The Undertaker’s height, below are the stats:

Billed Height: 6 ft 10 in

Real Height (in his prime): 6 ft 8 in

Current Height (after multiple surgeries and shrinking due to old age): 6 ft 6 in

The Undertaker is a former 7 time World Champion in the WWF/E and below are the lengths of all his World Title reigns:

1st World Title Reign (WWF Title – 1991) – 6 days

2nd World Title Reign (WWF Title – 1997) – 133 days

3rd World Title Reign (WWF Title – 1999) – 36 days

4th World Title Reign (Undisputed WWE Title – 2002) – 63 days

5th World Title Reign (World Heavyweight Title – 2007) – 37 days

6th World Title Reign (World Heavyweight Title – 2008) – 30 days

7th World Title Reign (World Heavyweight Title – 2009) – 140 days

After a 27 year career in the WWF/E (out of which 20 years were as a full time performer), The Undertaker was the World Champion for 445 days (1 year & 80 days).

Raven also talked about The Undertaker being a locker room leader:

“He was the locker room leader. I was loud, I was obnoxious, so I wasn’t his cup of tea, but we got along. There was no enmity. He was every bit the locker room leader everybody says, he was the authority.”
