• Triple H Comments On The Undertaker Calling Current WWE Product “Soft”
During an appearance on the Joe Rogan Experience earlier this year, The Undertaker had the following to say when asked if he enjoys watching WWE nowadays:
“I try. It’s tough for me because the product has changed so much and it’s kind of soft.
I’ll probably pi$$ a lot of people off but they need to hear it. It is what it is. But to the young guys, ‘oh, he’s a bitter old guy.’ I’m not bitter, I did my time. I’m good, I walked away when I wanted to walk away.
I just think the product is a little soft. There’s guys here and there that have an edge to them, but there’s too much pretty and not enough substance right now.”
During a conference call to promote the upcoming NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver event, Triple H was asked about Taker’s comments and here’s what The Game said:
“Everybody has opinions of the business and the business always morphs and changes, and people have opinions, and you can agree with them, you can disagree with them.
Taker has always been one of those guys that’s very properly honest and the great thing about him though, is he’s bluntly honest with an opinion – here’s how I think it should be, and here’s how I can help you to get there. So, he’s wide open to all of that.
His comments and his intention are always with the best of intent, or desire, to improve and I do believe he has a wealth of knowledge, that if he speaks…you know, there’s certain guys in the business that if they speak, they’ve been around a long time, seen a lot of things, and they’ve earned the right to, if they speak, you listen and you take the point of view, and you work with it. He’s one of those guys, for sure.
So, if he says it and believes it, there’s something to it. Then yeah, every generation is different and what people are willing to accept in generations. You know, everybody believes certain generations of music are better than others, too, and at the end of the day all of this is opinion. We all like what we like, we all dislike what we dislike, and we give our opinions on it, and it really comes down to what do the masses of people like.
Successful companies, you know, they can tap in, longterm, to the masses of people, and get the most people to buy in, to like, to want to participate with today’s product. So that’s where it’s at, and for Taker, I absolutely respect his opinion, and take it into account, and look forward to working with him on making it all better at every level.”
Triple H revealed a few months back that there have been talks with The Undertaker coming in to work at the WWE Performance Center as a mentor for the young WWE developmental wrestlers.
