Undertaker: It's Hard To Give Advice; These Guys Are Killing It And Making More Money Than We Did

Undertaker explains why it's difficult for him to be backstage at WWE events and why he doesn't need to advise today's WWE Superstars.

Undertaker was a top WWE Superstar for three decades. Now, Mark Calaway has officially transitioned to a role away from the camera.

Undertaker still comes around from time to time and keeps a close eye on WWE but in a new Patreon exclusive Q&A, he says he finds it hard to give today's wrestlers advice due to the strength of WWE's business overall.

The former WWE World Heavyweight Champion remarked that he sometimes gets the itch to go out to the ring and "do it better" himself but ultimately, he believes everybody is killing it.

"It's really tough being backstage because there's that part of me that wants to kind of pass it on to the guys that are there now and then, there's the part of me that's like 'You should be out there doing it. You could do it better. Yeah and I mean, physically I can't anymore, but those are all those little battles that I play in my head," he admitted. "It's hard to give advice anymore. Just for the fact that these guys are freaking killing it, business-wise. You guys are making more money than we ever made, what can I tell you?

"I mean, I wish they would storytell more and do a little less Cirque du Soleil, but I mean, evidently they tolerate it," he continued. "I always think things could be better and there's a place for some of the things that we used to do. They still have a valuable place in this product, but how do you tell somebody that's absolutely freaking killing it? 'Yeah, man, you go do you. You might want to learn how to tell a story because your career is not going to last very long during the stuff that you're doing.'"

Undertaker also joked that he would have come out of retirement for one more match if not for the fact that Sting just retired. Read more here.
