The Undertaker

Sean Waltman discussed The Undertaker’s recent actions on his latest episode of “X-Pac 1 2 360”. He gave his thoughts on why he thinks The Undertaker chose to remove all references to the WWE from his social media account – comparing his situation to that of HBK’s prior to his return to the WWE. Waltman also discussed The Lucha Brothers signing with AEW. Here are the highlights:

On The Undertaker Removing WWE References From His Social Media Not Being A Big Deal:

If anyone ever followed Shawn Michaels on social media before he took the job back at the Performance Center it was a similar situation. Shawn was taking outside appearances; I did appearances with him. For independent wrestling shows, the catch was it has to be separate, the appearance has to be separate, it’s not part of the wrestling show. So, I am pretty sure that’s what it’s going to be for Taker too. Let’s say, for instance, somebody that brings in people like that in, as far as wrestling promotions that have a good name…Maryland Championship Wrestling…I did appearances; Shawn {Michaels}, Scott {Hall}, Kevin{Nash} and I did appearances together for them and they kept it separate it was like a little fan fest separate. In that way, if it just so happens that you end up at an appearance connected to an independent promotion that might be less up to snuff product wise. Then you’re not seen as endorsing this show. You’re in and out before the show even starts…

On Fenix & Pentagon:

Let me just talk about Mexico for a second, when it comes to those guys. Those two fellas are such big deals and they’re so valuable that all these companies down there that hate each other are willing to share. Just like back in the day when you had Mil Mascaras. There was you know, Mil {Mascaras}, El Hijo Del Santo and others that can jump to whatever and do independent stuff and what have you down in Mexico. And it seems like those guys are you know, to me they must be of that caliber because they’re working for AAA, CMLL…and you know what, not just anyone in wrestling can get away with that. If I am thinking of others that are available right now there is {Chris} Jericho, there was Rey Mysterio before he signed back with Vince {McMahon}…here is a potential issue. When you’re trying to sell your TV show or potential TV show to a major network they are not going to want some of your main talent being able to show up on other people’s television. That’s an issue, a real issue.
