The Undertaker opens up about being nervous before his WWE debut
In a recent interview with USA TODAY Entertainment, The Undertaker discussed his debut in WWE and revealed how he felt when he was coming out for his match. The Deadman revealed that he was so excited that he had to remind himself to walk slow and stay in character:
Mark Calaway, at that moment, is so nervous that he can barely get one foot in front of the other. You know you have to think about... so I have this character, this brand new character and I'm heading towards the ring and in the ring, you've got 'The American Dream' Dusty Rhodes, you've got Bret Hart, you got Jim 'The Anvil' Neidhart, Koko B. Ware. You've got all these top tier guys and I'm about to go in there and basically toss them all around. In 1990, there's still a little bit of old school mentality left, you know, and guys weren't quite as friendly and open armed about those kinds of things as they are now so I'm just thinking to myself, 'go in there, don't hurt anybody, do what you're supposed to do and then we'll be off and running.
But yeah, I was a nervous wreck and trying to keep myself slow. I was trying to keep that because I already knew in my head that this character was going to walk slowly. But I'm so excited on the inside, I'm like slow down, slow down and I was moving slow but in my head I was like 'I want to get there and get started'.
During his interview with USA TODAY, The Undertaker also discussed The Fiend Bray Wyatt. Despite being a big fan of The Fiend, The Undertaker revealed why he was a little nervous about his character. You can check that out HERE.
