They’re really good at these things. There are a lot of problems with WWE and that has been the case for a very long time now. At the same time though, there are a lot of things that they do incredibly well. Near the top of that list is their ability to show off their history and production values, which very well may be their strong suit. That is on display again in a big way.
Last month, WWE presented one of its Big Four pay per views with Survivor Series. The show was centered around the Monday Night Raw vs. SmackDown Battle For Brand Supremacy as tends to be the case, but there was something special this year. This time around, the Undertaker finally made his retirement speech, and now WWE is giving it one more (for now) special look.
This is pretty cool. Check out what WWE is showing off for free and in full:
WWE has released the full Day Of: Survivor Series documentary onto their YouTube channel for free. The video features a look at the various legends who were present for the Undertaker’s retirement ceremony, including their interactions with each other and various active wrestlers. In addition, the Undertaker and Vince McMahon are shown backstage before they came to the ring. This is the latest entry in a series of documentaries that WWE has produced showing the day backstage at various events.
Opinion: This is the kind of thing that WWE does better than anyone else and it is rather cool of them to let the fans see it for free. You don’t get to see this kind of backstage footage all that often and it is a rather cool thing to see. Above all else, it is beyond strange to see the Undertaker backstage and in a more personal light like this. I know he has been doing the same thing all year, but it still does not feel right.
