And so, he stays. There are very few wrestlers, or people for that matter, who stick around WWE for their entire careers. You only have a handful of people who are willing to be in the company for that long and even fewer who are capable of keeping a job that long. In this case though, one of the longest standing employees may be sticking around even longer and not even looking elsewhere.
According to Wrestling Observer Radio, the Undertaker has signed a new deal with WWE, which will prevent him from appearing in question and answer sessions. Undertaker was recently pulled from such a session in the United Kingdom. Undertaker still appears for WWE, such as last week on Monday Night Raw when he attacked Elias, setting up a match at the upcoming Saudi Arabia show. There is no word on what kind of appearances, if any, Undertaker can make outside of WWE.
He wasn’t happy on Monday. Check out Undertaker laying out Elias:
Opinion: I’m curious about this contract and why WWE is so obsessive with keeping Undertaker from being allowed to speak. Various other wrestlers have been allowed to do so, with Steve Austin even having a show where he often criticizes the company. I can’t imagine Undertaker saying that much about WWE that would take away his star power, but apparently WWE seems to think he needs to be kept away from a live microphone.
What would you want to ask Undertaker? What will he do next in WWE? Let us know in the comments below.
