• The Undertaker Comments On WWE Accepting Blood On Their Programming Again
During a recent interview with ESPN, WWE Hall Of Famer The Undertaker talked about how the product will change with Vince McMahon gone and Triple H taking over the creative process.
Below are the highlights:
On how the WWE product will change:
“They’re loosening the reins a little bit as far as what guys can say and do.
I think the product will probably be a little more aggressive. I think that’s going to come through in the creative.
They’ve kind of been in this entertainment mode, so they’re going to have to get some grit and meanness.”
On WWE accepting blood on their programming again (most recently on the July 25th episode of RAW, where Montez Ford was busted open during the main event and the cameras zoomed in on his face and the commentators acknowledged it too):
“Those things are going to help because WWE is going to do it better than anybody else, and they don’t throw things away.
Hopefully, a lot of people there know how to rein things in and make things like that mean something instead of just doing it to do it.”
