• The Undertaker Recalls The Time He Yelled At The Entire WWE Locker Room In Australia
During an interview with Gary Vaynerchuk, The Undertaker told a story about him being disappointed about the WWE locker room’s performance at an event in Australia, which made him angry and yell at them after the show.
Below is what Taker said:
“I watched every match. Back in the day I watched every match. Every single match, one for my own benefit but two to see who’s coming along, who’s paying attention, who’s getting better, who I want to work with.
The matches were flat, they stunk, nobody put in any effort and at the end of the night I asked Fit Finlay if I could bring everybody in a room to say something. I gathered everybody up in a room and I went off, I lost my sh*t.
I said ‘We just went out there and stunk it up in front of a million dollar plus house, what do you think these people are going to do the next time we come here? They aren’t going to pay to see sh*t!'”
