Bruce Prichard recently spoke with Sporting News, where he discussed his thoughts on both Roman Reigns and The Undertaker.
Prichard first gave his opinion on whether Reigns has the ‘It’ factor:
“Roman Reigns has ‘it.’ Roman Reigns is going to be the guy. He’s got all the tools. Love him or hate him, they care about him. I have no problem with Roman Reigns being the next guy to take it to the next level because he’s a stud.”
Prichard describes what people thought of The Undertaker when he debuted:
“The crowd didn’t boo right away but they reacted. There was an air in the room that people were like ‘Oh my God, this is special. Look at that guy!’. He looked different. He walked differently. How he worked his matches back then was different and that’s enough, especially in those days, that people took notice. He’s just a unique talent. He’s a unique man. He got it right from the beginning and he embraced that character and became the character.”
Finally, Prichard explains when it was that breaking Undertaker’s streak started to come up:
“One day, Michael Hayes goes ‘Well, ‘Taker ain’t never lost at WrestleMania’ and I’m like, ‘Really? That’s interesting. Well, maybe somebody should talk about beating the streak?’ I think Randy Orton [at WrestleMania 21] was really the first time we started making a big deal out of it because we had never planned it prior to that. Now we have something, we have something for someone to break. It’s almost like a championship, so let’s start talking about it a little bit, but it was never done by design in the beginning.”
