• Reason Behind The Undertaker Visiting The WWE Performance Center Recently
As we noted before, The Undertaker visited the WWE Performance Center last week along with his wife, former WWE Diva Michelle McCool.
This began speculation that The Undertaker was there to train for his in-ring return, but that’s not the case.
According to the Wrestling Observer, The Undertaker & Michelle McCool visited the Performance Center to teach the future WWE Superstars a thing or two about the Wrestling Business.
The Undertaker usually takes the bigger men under his wing to teach them how to sell and work like a big man / giant. Before his WWE main roster debut, Baron Corbin received some advice from Taker regarding how to work in the ring as both men are of the same size.
Speaking of The Undertaker, he’s expected to work both WrestleMania 35 and the post-WrestleMania 35 PPV in Saudi Arabia in May.
