The Undertaker says he will never wear the trench coat and hat again.
The last time wrestling fans saw the Undertaker was at WWE Raw XXX. On that night, the gong sounded while LA Knight was in the ring, and fans believed they would see "The Deadman." However, Kid Rock's American Bad Ass began to play out in the arena. The Undertaker showed up on a motorcycle reminiscent of his 2001 character.
Now, speaking with Ariel Helwani, Undertaker has revealed that those involved with the segment expected him to come out with his more traditional character, revealing that he will not put on his traditional Undertaker gear again.
"They had a different vision. They didn't even know that I wasn't going to have the hat and coat. They totally thought I was coming [out as] old Undertaker. I was like, no. That's part of me and the storytelling, right? When I lifted the curtain, and when I lifted it back and pulled it back, that's gone. It's gone now."
Asked if he was done with that, Undertaker responded, "I won't bring the hat and coat back out, no."
He continued by saying that now that he is a public speaker and regularly does interviews, he doesn't think the character can be portrayed in that way anymore.
Undertaker has since revealed what he said to Bray Wyatt at WWE Raw XXX and why he doesn't feel that it's fair for fans to compare the Bray Wyatt character to the Undertaker character. Learn more here.
