The Undertaker ended his extraordinary career last year by receiving a magnificent tribute to the 2020 Survivor Series, where his legendary epic had begun 30 years earlier. Barring sensational and unlikely twists, his last fight will therefore remain the controversial Boneyard Match against AJ Styles at WrestleMania 36.
The Undertaker has left a huge footprint on the sports entertainment business, which goes far beyond the simple titles won and countless victories. During the latest edition of Metal Injection's Squared Circle Pit podcast, current Raw superstar Damian Priest recalled a training session with Taker at the WWE Performance Center.
Priest, who also fought in Ring of Honor as Punishment Martinez, recently made his main roster debut after a long stint at NXT (where he held the NXT American Championship for over two months). "One day we managed to get in the ring a little bit with The Undertaker at the Performance Center, he was wearing gloves and everything.
We were afraid he would hit us hard. He was showing something to a guy I don't remember now, and to do it he punched at full speed towards my nose. As soon as he touched my face he pulled back, just before he broke my nose, and I thought it was something exceptional.
I asked him to do it again, I had never seen anything like it," said Priest. The Archer of Infamy also talked about his first audition to enter WWE: "I showed up there in 2014 and he liked it a lot. However, they told me that there was no room for me at that time.
I worked hard and got back to the federation about a year later, but once again it went wrong. I thought I would never join WWE. Paradoxically, they called me at a perfect juncture, that is, when my contract with Ring of Honor had just expired."
