The Undertaker criticized for failing to mention Mick Foley

The Undertaker is on the list of the most iconic performers of all time. His gimmick allowed him to transcend wrestling and become a global role model. The Digger spent nearly 30 years in WWE, engaging in memorable feuds with some of the greatest champions of the modern era.

The Deadman officially retired from the 2020 Survivor Series, not before receiving a beautiful tribute from friends and colleagues. Shortly before WrestleMania 38, the Phenom was inducted with full merit into the WWE Hall of Fame by Vince Mcmahon himself.

During his speech, Taker mentioned the most important superstars for his career, Shawn Michaels and Triple H above all. Many fans and insiders were surprised by Undertaker's choice not to mention a sacred monster like Mick Foley.

In a long interview granted to Bleacher Report, Taker wanted to respond to the criticisms.

He said: "I gave an honest speech, in which I said everything I wanted to say.

I'm sorry not to have mentioned all the performers who have been important to my career, but it was not possible for reasons of time. I decided to focus mainly on Shawn Michaels and Triple H." "I've talked many times about Mick Foley over the years, go and reread my interviews.

I love it, I'm serious. What we did in the ring will never be forgotten by fans. Edge also comes to mind, which I didn't mention in my talk. If someone is offended, I'm sorry." The Deadman also spoke of Stephanie McMahon, who took over from her father Vince about her in command of the WWE: "Stephanie is an exceptional woman and she will prove it in the coming months.

This new role of her fits her perfectly. I like her because she is a balanced person, able to see the big picture. Her steady hand of hers is exactly what WWE needs right now."
