• “It’s his way of lighting that little fire to get guys motivated” – Former WWF Referee On The Undertaker’s Recent Comments
On the latest episode of the Wrestling Inc podcast, Old School referee Jimmy Korderas, who worked for Vince McMahon from 1987 until 2009, was asked about The Undertaker’s recent comments, where The Deadman called today’s WWE product “soft”.
Here’s what the former WWF referee had to say:
“I’m an Undertaker guy, I fully respect The Undertaker and his opinion. I can’t speak to it because I’m not there now. I’m not in the locker room. I don’t see it anymore. So I don’t know what the changes are from back when I was there.
Basically, like ‘Taker said, back in the day, you had to, at times, put up or shut up.
It’s just the way it was, again talking old school mentality. How it is nowadays? I couldn’t speak to that. I honestly couldn’t.
Maybe he’s just trying to fire up the guys, fire up the troops, maybe it’s his way of lighting that little fire to get guys motivated.
I’ve seen it before, even back in the day, sometimes guys get complacent with their positioning and replacement, and they’re okay with just going along with things.
Sometimes you have to stir the pot a little bit, let’s put it that way. Not only with other talent but with management.
Hey, I know people talk about Vince in this way, but sometimes it’s okay to go to Vince and say, ‘Hey Vince, I got an idea. How about this?’.
Maybe that’s what he’s trying to do. Maybe he’s just trying to light a fire under the boys and girls.”
