• WWF Legend Says He Respects The Undertaker More Than Anybody, Says Raw 25 Will Be Epic
During a recent interview with New York Post, Old School WWF Legend Triple H revealed that he respects The Undertaker more than anybody and commented on why the fans want to see more of “The Deadman”:
“You talk about longevity and the ability to change and morph all those things, he is a measuring stick of all of that. That’s why 25 years later they want to see him maybe more now than ever. As a performer he is the measuring stick in a lot of ways, and as a human being as a performer in what we do, as a locker room leader. I respect him more than anybody.
I understand why people can’t let go of it. It’s a hard thing to say that that would be the end. What he has left? I don’t know. We’ll have to ask him. That’s the beauty of WWE. Wait and see.”
Triple H also said the following about Legends returning for Raw 25:
“It’s finding that kind of middle road to celebrate everything that’s happened in the past yet keep a little bit of focus on where we are today and in the future.
That’s the challenge, but you break down the show, three hours, two locations, Manhattan Center, Barclays Center with the names and list or talent that has graced ‘Raw’ over the last 25 years going to be in attendance, it’s going to be epic.”
• Former TNA World Champion Says His Ultimate Goal Is To Go To WWE
During a recent interview with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated, former TNA World Heavyweight Champion James Storm talked about his ultimate goal in Pro Wrestling, being 40 years old & more. Below are the highlights:
On his ultimate goal in Pro Wrestling:
“My ultimate goal is to go to WWE. The WWE has such a grip on the world, it’s pretty amazing, and I believe I still have a lot to give.
I’m in the best shape I’ve ever been. When I left Impact, I told people this isn’t my last stop, it’s just time for me to get on a new horse.”
On being 40 years old:
“People say, ‘Well, you’re 40 years old. When I grew up watching wrestling, my heroes were men like the ‘Macho Man’ Randy Savage. The older you get, the more of a superhero you become. There is a reason there is Superman, and not Superboy.”
