Xavier Woods got his opportunity to share the ring with a legend, but it didn’t go his way.

One of the unique facets of pro wrestling compared to other sports is that today’s rookies and younger wrestlers get the chance to work alongside veterans and legends, some of whom those wrestlers cheered for growing up. For example, when New Day shared a segment with guys like Stone Cold, Mick Foley and Shawn Michaels, that would be the equivalent of Steph Curry sharing a court with Michael Jordan.

Some of these veterans are around for more than just a segment, though. Many veterans have remained in the locker room on at least a semi-regular basis for a long time, and even some of the current stars have established themselves as leaders. Here are five examples.


#1 Undertaker

The Undertaker has been in the WWE for more than two decades.

There is perhaps no better role model for WWE rookies than the Undertaker. If you ask almost any young superstar, the Deadman is on their list of dream matchups down the road, and not just for the chance to beat him at WrestleMania.

Undertaker has been the ultimate company man. He would have been a hot commodity for WCW during the Monday Night War, but once he landed at WWE, then WWF, he stayed. Further, he has always been regarded as a leader in the locker room and can teach rookies the right way to do business.
