At the Survivor Series 2000 pay-per-view, The Undertaker sported new snakeskin pants in a match against Kurt Angle for the WWF Championship.

Despite resistance from his gear designer, Terry Anderson, Undertaker insisted on the pants, believing they would be “badass”.

On his Six Feet Under podcast, Undertaker revealed Terry’s attempts to dissuade him:

“Terry Anderson, she’s the one that did my ring gear, my whole career. She was always trying to get me to do something with my jackets. She always wanted to make them extraordinary, which she did, but I was always super conservative.

I remember going to her, I’m The American Badass at this point. I go to her because she was like, ‘Hey, what do you want to do for Survivor Series?’ I said, ‘I want to do python skin pants.’ She looks at me, deadpan, ‘No you don’t.’ ‘They will be badass. Think about it. Snakeskin pants.’ ‘Mark, no.’ ‘Are you kidding me?’ I thought she would love the idea. ‘You’re too big. They will look ridiculous.’ ‘Noooo, this is going to be the absolute coolest look The American Badass has ever presented.’ ‘No, Mark, it’s not.’

She tried her hardest to talk me out of those pants, and I wouldn’t hear it. Then, it got to the day of. I didn’t have any back up. When I put them on and I looked. I was like, ‘Holy sh*t, you’re the main event tonight against Kurt Angle and you look like you have some pants that belong to the Godfather.’”

Undertaker expressed gratitude that the commentary team, including Jim Ross and Michael Cole, didn’t mock him:

“That was the one good point of having the respect of JR, Michael Cole, and those guys. They were so respectful. They could have had a field day with me if they wanted it.

I caught some crap that day. A couple people were like, ‘Are you going to wear those?’ That was not my best idea.

Vince (McMahon) changed the script when he saw those pants (laughs). ‘There’s no way that can be my World Champion’.”
