7. Chris Jericho’s Possible Return Date, Raven On Why The Undertaker Wasn’t The World Champion For A Long Time
– WWF Legend Chris Jericho, who’s currently taking time off from WWE to work his Fozzy tour, is expected to return to WWE in late June. He’s currently being advertised for WWE Live Events in Japan for June 30 & July 1.
– During a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, WWF, WCW, ECW & TNA Veteran Raven talked about The Undertaker’s lengthy run in the WWF/E. Raven noted how The Undertaker’s height resulted in him not getting lengthy World Title runs during the early days of his career in the WWF.
Below is what Raven had to say:
“If he had been six inches shorter, he would have been the perennial World Champion. But at 6-foot-10, he was relegated to the monster, “Creature Feature” matches. The Undertaker only had the chance to show his skills in fights at the end of his career.
It wasn’t until near the end of his career when he finally started being able to show that he could actually work, but, by then, he wasn’t anywhere near the worker he was ten years before that. He was amazing.”
Speaking of The Undertaker’s height, below are the stats:
Billed Height: 6 ft 10 in
Real Height (in his prime): 6 ft 8 in
Current Height (after multiple surgeries and shrinking due to old age): 6 ft 6 in
