The Undertaker Gives Advice To The Younger Wrestlers Out There

With nearly three decades of experience in the WWE, The Undertaker has seen it all. So, when he speaks, chances are young wrestlers are listening. 

Speaking to Pastor Ed Young in a rare out of character interview, The Undertaker discussed how too many wrestlers get caught up with what they've seen and don't focus on what they can be.

"They're trying to emulate or be like a wrestler they've seen on TV instead of being the wrestler on TV. You get somebody out there, 'Oh, I've watched The Rock. I'm gonna be him.' You've got to make something yours. You have to own it," he said. "If I'm trying to be The Rock, people are gonna see right through that. If you can be the original individual, that's the key to making people believe in you."

Taker continued, admitting that it can be tough for young wrestlers to know which advice to follow when so many respected veterans give them advice.

"I work with a lot of the young talent now. Shawn Michaels works with a lot of young talent. We can tell these guys, 'Try this, do this' And now they're like, 'I've got one guy telling me one thing and another guy saying this.' That's the hard part," he stated. "Putting it all together. You can't just think, 'That worked for him, it's going to work for me.' You have to figure out how to take the information and all these personalities and formulate your own. That's one of the trickier aspects."

Michaels currently works with the next generation of WWE talent at the Performance Center and NXT as a producer. While The Undertaker doesn't have a stated role in the company, it's certain he still passes along tips while he's backstage.
