The Undertaker dedicated himself to entertaining fans through his performances. This commitment has earned him a legendary status, recognized for his numerous achievements. His contributions to the world of professional wrestling are unparalleled, with his influence felt in diverse areas. The Undertaker also revealed the biggest secret to his success in WWE.

The Deadman recently revealed in an interview with Chris Van Vliet that his motivation to succeed and dedication to his character came from being told by WCW booker Ole Anderson that he would never draw money and that no one would pay to see him wrestle. This fueled The Undertaker’s drive to succeed and led him to create one of the most unique and captivating characters in professional wrestling history.

Despite being a great athlete, The Undertaker was told that he would never make money in the wrestling industry. However, this negative feedback only served to motivate him to work harder and prove his critics wrong. The Undertaker’s dedication to his craft was evident in his incredible work ethic and his commitment to always being in character, even in his personal life. He believed that being The Undertaker was not just a role he played in the ring, but a part of who he was.

The character of The Undertaker was a gift, according to The Undertaker himself. When he first received the character, he knew that it was special and that he had the potential to create something truly unique. He put everything he had into developing the character, making sure that every time he appeared on screen or in the ring, he was always The Undertaker. His dedication to the character was so strong that many people believed that he actually thought he was The Undertaker, not just playing a role.

For The Undertaker, being The Undertaker was the most important thing in his life, second only to his children. He poured everything he had into the character and made sure that it was genuine and authentic, something that fans could connect with and believe in.

“I think it was, the one thing that kind of really put the fire under me was being told by WCW that I would never draw money. I mean, to this day that motivates me, you know, being told to my face that hey you’re a great athlete, you’re never gonna make money. And, you know, so that and then just the passion that I had for this, and then I knew, right, really early on what I was doing with the character.

I mean, that was such a gift, that character. I mean, it hit me. I mean, it just hit me right between the eyes. I knew when I got it I was like, wow, this is special, this is really special. And then it just, it just became part of me and I lived it. And I think the dedication to always being that guy everywhere I went, every time somebody saw me, it was that guy. And, you know, it, there was probably to, you know, probably to a fault, my personal life, everything kind of took a backseat to being The Undertaker, which is probably not fair, I mean, to my older kids, and I’ve made amends with them. But you know, I’ve heard different guys, I’ve heard [Steve] Austin talk about this, you can’t be, or we couldn’t figure it out, a lot of guys do it now.

But back then we just, we grinded everything and everything that we were as human beings were poured into our characters, and I just, it was the most, probably the most important, you know, outside of my kids, it was the most important thing in my life was to be Undertaker, and for that to be genuine, and for people just to like, even if they didn’t understand or they didn’t know, or there’s like, there’s something different about that guy. It wasn’t a character for a long time. It was just, I think that guy’s really like that.

Not whether I was a zombie or whether I was dead. They, I mean, obviously they knew that I was a live human being. But they genuinely believed, I think, that I thought I was The Undertaker. And I think that came off, you know, I think that’s the way that I was perceived, like, this dude is just different and different from what everybody else was doing. So I don’t know, I think it was just like the dedication to the craft and the character that and nothing else came before that.”

The Undertaker also made it clear that he will never wear his iconic attire ever again. Regardless, The Phenom has a lot of things to keep himself busy and that is all that matters to him.
