WWE paid tribute to Undertaker at Survivor Series, giving him a final farewell after three decades in the company.
During the final farewell, multiple WWE Hall of Famer and those close to Undertaker were introduced and stood in the ring together. However, following a video package celebrating Taker's career, everyone was gone and only Vince McMahon was in the ring to introduce Undertaker.
Speaking on his Hall of Fame podcast, Booker T, who was part of the ceremony, explained why the wrestlers disappeared.
"We were just there to be there for that moment for Undertaker. That moment wasn't for us, it was for him. It was his moment Anything that we would've said could've overshadowed what he said. The Undertaker was never a guy that was going to talk a whole lot. One thing you don't want to do is give a bunch of old wrestlers a microphone. We would've been out there all night," he said.
Undertaker gave a short speech in the ring before kneeling to a hologram Paul Bearer and making his way to the back.
Elsewhere during the podcast, Booker discussed drinking with Undertaker, Ric Flair, and the rest of the boys the night before Survivor Series. You can find his full comments by clicking here.
