The Undertaker weighs in on one of the key rivalries of the Women's Evolution in WWE.
The Undertaker has seen a lot in 30 years and he has lived through several evolutions in the history of WWE. Arguably, no shift is more pivotal in the long-term growth of WWE than the Women’s Evolution.
In 2016 at WrestleMania 32, WWE made the decision to no longer call their women Superstars “Divas” and emphasize the growth of their in-ring ability over the years. At that same WrestleMania, Snoop Dogg was involved in his cousin Sasha Banks’ entrance at WrestleMania prior to her Triple Threat Match against Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair.
Sasha Banks was an integral part of getting WWE to the point of focusing on women's wrestling inside the ring due to her rivalry in NXT against Bayley. The match between Sasha and Bayley at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn in 2015 received praise from Legends of all areas including Shawn Michaels, who was quoted as saying “if that's what the women are doing, then the men are in trouble.”
Speaking with Snoop Dogg on Instagram live prior to his final farewell at the 2020 WWE Survivor Series event, The Undertaker weighed in on the change in women's wrestling in WWE in recent years. To no surprise, he is also a fan of the work that Sasha Banks and Bayley have put into their story and Undertaker says that it's the story that matters not the gender.
“Sasha/Bayley, man, that was -- that's good stuff, man. I don't care if you're a man or a woman. That's a good story, good action, you know? It's top-level man, but I got no problem with it at all,” said Undertaker.
Snoop Dogg replied, “I love it. I love to see that the industry can grow and that the women can bring it, you know? Don't just give an opportunity, but when they get the opportunity, they make the most of it and they have.”
Undertaker and Snoop Dogg did not just hang out on Instagram, they launched a collaborative merch line through WWE Shop. Learn more at this link.
