• “Everybody else on the roster is having a hard time keeping up with them” – Ric Flair On The Undertaker & Steve Austin Promoting WrestleMania 38
During a recent episode of his podcast, 2-time WWE Hall Of Famer Ric Flair was asked if The Undertaker will return for one final match, in front of the fans.
Flair doesn’t think Taker will wrestle again, and went on to put over the tremendous drawing power of Taker and “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, who WWE are using to promote WrestleMania 38 in Dallas.
Here’s what The Nature Boy said:
“He doesn’t need the money obviously. He’s been so successful. I think he is so wrapped up with Michelle [McCool] and the kids and his family… It goes to show you the star power that these guys bring.
When they’re sending Steve Austin to Dallas and The Undertaker to Dallas to promote WrestleMania , trust me, everybody else on the roster is having a hard time keeping up with them.
You just can’t replace those two legendary characters in terms of doing P.R. for you.”
