• “THAT WAS A MONEY PROMO!” – The Undertaker To Current Champion
BT Sport is releasing a lot of content related to The Undertaker this week as they’re celebrating 30 years of The Undertaker in WWE.
Intercontinental Champion Sami Zayn recently spoke about The Undertaker, and recalled his first memory of The American Badass.
Below is what he said:
“The first memory that I have of really interacting with him was at NXT. It was a television taping, late 2014, right before I’m about to wrestle Neville. That story had a good build-up going into that match. It was maybe the last episode of TV before the match.
I cut this really impassioned promo, which I think is one of my better promos as a good guy because the storyline was that we were friends, but he was the champion because he was willing to get his hands dirty and I was too adherent to my morality and that’s why I would never succeed like him. We had this heated talking segment where I slap him in the face.
When I got back there, Undertaker was fired up. He was like, ‘THAT’S HOW YOU DO IT! THAT’S HOW YOU SELL TICKETS! THAT WAS A MONEY PROMO!’ That night, I think we did a match for the championship where [Neville] won and R Evolution was the rematch. He also complimented that match.
He was like, ‘I thought you were just going to go out there and do a bunch of spots, but you guys told a story. That is how you do it!’ Undertaker is Undertaker and the fact that he was at NXT was ‘Undertaker is here.’ For him to be waiting for us backstage as soon as we got through the curtain, and fired up about how good our work was, that was amazing.”
