• Some People In WWE Were Upset Over The Undertaker’s Promo On RAW
On this week’s episode of RAW, The Undertaker said that AJ Styles was content being a big fish in a little pond (TNA) back in the day because he knew he wasn’t on the level of people like him, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, The Rock, Shawn Michaels, Triple H, Kurt Angle, Mick Foley, Eddie Guerrero, Booker T and Edge.
You can watch the complete promo below:
According to the Wrestling Observer, some people in WWE were upset with this line as it shed a bad light on WWE’s current roster.
While most people believe what Taker said is true, some WWE wrestlers weren’t happy about this.
However, it was noted that the promo was approved by Vince McMahon, and this led to the already upset people in WWE wondering what Vince thinks about them.
