Undertaker Reveals Why Vince McMahon Changed The WWF Ring

During a recent episode of his new ‘Six Feet Under’ podcast, WWF Legend The Undertaker described the old school World Wrestling Federation rings as way too hard.

While they weren’t exactly as hard as Boxing or Kickboxing rings, the WWF rings were still way too hard for pro-wrestling back during the 80s and early 90s, but that all changed eventually, and The Deadman revealed why.

Here’s what The Undertaker had to say:

“The ring got a lot softer after Vince started taking bumps years ago. Those first generation rings with WWE were nothing more than glorified boxing rings.

They freaking hurt, especially in the winter when your body is already stiff and it’s cold outside and you’re doing double shot days.

The second show on a double shot day, your body doesn’t loosen up the second time the way it does the first time. Those were pretty snug, hitting some of those in cold arenas.”

Long term WWF/WWE promoter Vince McMahon first started to take bumps in 1998, when he also had his first official match. While Vince isn’t a trained professional at all, he still managed to perform a total of 57 matches between 1998 and 2022.

Over the years, the World Wrestling Federation, later WWE, got a lot safer for the performers, in order to reduce their injuries and increase the length of their respective careers.
