“It’s Hard To Be Just A Straight Fan” – The Undertaker On Watching WWE

The Undertaker has revealed why he doesn’t watch WWE programming as often as he’d like to in an interview with USA Today.

Discussing his illustrious 30-year career with Brian Truitt, The Deadman spoke on what he was thinking during his Survivor Series debut; how it feels to finally break character; what he wants his daughter to take away from his career and… his TV viewing habits?!

After being such a prominent television figure for wrestling fans worldwide, The Undertaker said he watches predominantly sports in his spare time but also enjoyed Dexter and Sons of Anarchy:

“Mostly sports. I love boxing, MMA, college football. I need a new series. I loved ‘Dexter’ (and) ‘Sons of Anarchy.’ I love ‘Yellowstone,’ man. Probably not as much as I should, I watch our product. I think I don’t watch it as often because I put myself in, like, ‘Ahh, I should be there!'”

Undertaker went on to reveal he struggles to get himself out of the mentality of critiquing other superstars when watching WWE, making it hard for him to just be a fan:

“I can to a certain degree. But a lot of times I catch myself talking to the TV like they can hear me. It’s hard to be just a straight fan, because I want everybody to succeed and to develop into their potential. So I’m kind of like, ‘Oh man, don’t do it. It didn’t make sense. Don’t do that. Why would you do that?’ You would actually laugh if there was a camera watching me watch wrestling. I have these conversations and it’s pretty amusing, I’m sure.”

The Undertaker is set to host his ‘Final Farewell’ at Survivor Series tomorrow night, where The Deadman will officially announce his retirement from in-ring action with multiple stars related to his career in attendance.

Inside The Ropes will have live coverage of Survivor Series tomorrow and will keep you up-to-date with all the fallout from the show.
