• Undertaker Says “The Deadman” Gimmick Wouldn’t Have Lasted Through The Attitude Era

WWE has released another promo for The Undertaker – Stone Cold Steve Austin Broken Skull Sessions interview (which will premiere on the WWE Network tonight after Survivor Series 2019 goes off the air).

In this promo, The Undertaker talks about how the American Badass gimmick helped him:

“I always felt like, if I started feeling stale, my audience is probably feeling it before me. You get wrapped up in what you’re doing. So, the small changes, the breaks at the right time — but I don’t think I would had made it through if I hadn’t changed when I did to go to the American Badass. The character – I don’t think would have lasted through the Attitude Era.”
