The tag team match at Extreme Rules helped people forget about the infamous Goldberg bout and earned McIntyre and Reigns praise from "The Deadman."

“That match meant a lot to me,” Undertaker told Sports Illustrated. “I go all the way back with Shane to when he was in college. I have a long-lasting relationship with all the Samoans, and Roman is one of the Samoan greats. As a human being, I think the world of Roman. And Drew is one of those genuine guys. Anytime I’m around, he’s right there picking my brain. He’s not doing it because it looks good to others, he does it because he genuinely wants to get better. Those are top legitimately great stars.”

Undertaker continued by saying, "I was trying to erase that stain out of memory [from the Goldberg match]. I’ve heard from so many people who think they know all about wrestling and what I should do, but no one has any idea how I grade myself. It’s far more severe than people may think, and my expectations for what I do are higher than people think, too. So that was a fun night. We were all on the same page, we knew what the objective was, and that match was special. Roman and Drew are very special talents, two of the best at what they do."

Undertaker and Reigns were victorious in the bout, which turned out to be Undertaker's last in-ring match in the United States.

While Undertaker praised Reigns and McIntyre for their roles in 2019, he recently drew their ire with his "WWE is too soft" comments in 2021. You can view McIntyre's response by clicking here and Roman's response by clicking here.
