The Undertaker recently revealed how he managed to stay relevant for 30 years
Vince McMahon inducted The Undertaker into the WWE Hall of Fame after 30 years in the professional wrestling industry. The Phenom was loyal to WWE throughout his career and maintained his character without breaking kayfabe.
In a recent interview on ESPN with Joe Tessitore, he revealed the strategies that helped him stay relevant for three decades in the industry:
“I made a decision really early on to only give people The Undertaker even when I was in public. Although I wasn’t dressed like I was on TV, there was no doubt that, that was the same guy. So, there was never really a variance, like, I’ve been in the airport and people are like, 'That’s The Undertaker.' So, I always felt because my character was so over the top, that if I didn’t give it that air of legitimacy, then people wouldn’t accept it and people wouldn’t buy it." (from 2:02 to 2:53)
