The Undertaker Explains The Importance Of Casket Matches To His Career

Published

on

Casket matches have certainly played an important part in the career of The Undertaker, and he recently discussed that.

During an interview with WWE’s The Bump, the Deadman spoke about how influential casket matches were, especially during the early stages of his career.


“I think those early casket matches were so pivotal to the character because they were so, you’re talking about the early 1990s and nothing like that was being done. Just the concept of putting your opponent in a casket and everybody has their ideas of caskets and some are very squeamish about them. Other people aren’t bothered by them, but the fact that you’re taking your opponent and locking them up in a casket kind of reiterated that the Undertaker character is on a whole other level of what wins and losses looked like. I think those casket matches and the body bag matches were crucial to the development of the character and setting it apart from every other character out there because nobody else was doing it. There were cage matches. There were No DQ matches, but to lock your opponent in a casket, it really caught people off guard considering the time period in which we did it,” Undertaker said.

The group, along with the strikingly absent Trey Miguel, recently departed IMPACT wrestling their final match with world champion Rich Swann, and hosting their final episode of The Treehouse.


Another name among the Performance Center signees is Alex Zayne (Alex Brandenburg) in one of the more amazing stories of wrestling over the last few years. Zayne has had his time on the indie scene in the past, but returned to the world of backyard wrestling for many years. It was only recently that he returned to the indie scene, blowing up because of the success of promotions like GCW.

WWE has also signed Japanese wrestler Sojiru “Ikemen” Higuchi, a trainee of Yoshihiro Tajiri, former college basketball and WNBA player Anriel Howard, and west coast indie wrestler Rust Taylor (now Russ Taylor), who recently competed on NJPW STRONG and competed in the Ring of Honor Pure Championship tournament.
