Speaking on his Six Feet Under podcast, Taker reflected on his WrestleMania 9 experience.

"I should have been in the ring with Yoko. Instead, I'm riding out on a chariot with a big black vulture. That big black vulture was there to pick the bones of that sorry match. It's amazing I survived the early years of my career. The opponents...I'm not going to name names, but I'll name that one because I've talked about it a lot and he's deceased anyway. Giant Gonzalez, wow. He made Khali look like Lou Thesz. It was such a struggle. It wasn't his fault. It was what it was. You can only do what you can do. On paper, what a viable threat to the Undertaker. He's a foot taller than me. He was damn near 7 foot 8 and had the muscle suit with the fur. Once I was done, I was done. 'I need to have some cold beverages and try to wash this out of my memory.' They were awful. I don't think I had one good match with him. I tried. I tried hard. I was trying to make chicken salad out of chicken shit. I was killing myself. He was so limited in what he could do. 'Just grab me throw me around.' That was no sell Taker where it was all about the character. I was having to reach the outer banks of (what I could do). 'Maybe he kicks the shit out of me for five or six minutes and we figure a way out of this,'" said Undertaker.
