The Undertaker points out the striking difference in WWE backstage under Triple H from the time of Vince McMahon

The Undertaker, with his 30-year WWE career, has left an indelible mark on WWE and its fans. He is undoubtedly one of the greatest wrestlers of all time, earning the respect and admiration of everyone in the industry. The Undertaker also had a close friendship with the former WWE Chairman, Vince McMahon, and the backstage creators.

With Vince McMahon resigned from all his positions in the WWE, the Chief Content officer and Head of Creative, Triple H is believed to take the important decisions in the WWE backstage. In a recent interview, Undertaker shared his thoughts on the change in landscape of the WWE locker rooms after the arrival of Triple H.

The Undertaker comments on Triple H’s leadership

The Undertaker recently shared his insights on the backstage atmosphere and creative direction of WWE under the leadership of Triple H. In his podcast, Six Feet Under, Undertaker discussed how things have changed in WWE since Triple H took over the creative reins from Vince McMahon in 2022.

Undertaker said, “There is like this calm backstage. The crew itself, the talent, they’re relatively young. Top to bottom, they’re young people. They’re all so chill,. I’ve seen Triple H get worked up, but I haven’t seen him yell at Talent. I haven’t seen him bad mouth anybody. There’s been times where you come back through the curtain and you know that ass-chewing is coming. I haven’t seen that with him.”

The Undertaker praised Triple H for being able to run WWE in a better way than McMahon’s chaotic and hectic style. He said that he was surprised by how relaxed the talent and the crew were, and how he rarely saw Triple H lose his temper or yell at anyone. He also acknowledged that Triple H’s approach has resulted in an evident improvement in WWE storylines and fan reception.

Undertaker also said, “Like I said, I haven’t been around a whole lot, but I’ve been around enough, and I know him well enough, and I can just tell it’s such a chill vibe. For me, I almost don’t like it because it’s almost too calm. To me, and this is just me on the outside looking in, it’s like they don’t care enough. It’s not that. It’s just the atmosphere.”

Triple H’s involvement in WWE’s creative direction began in the early 2000s, when he became a trusted advisor and confidant of Vince McMahon. Triple H used his role to push stars such as Randy Orton, Batista, John Cena, Edge, and CM Punk, who became the faces of WWE in the 2000s and 2010s.

Triple H’s creative input also extended to the development of new brands and concepts within WWE, such as NXT, 205 Live, and the Cruiserweight Classic. The King of Kings’ impact on WWE’s atmosphere is undeniable and has changed the wrestling industry for the better, by allowing the collaboration with other wrestling promotions.

The Undertaker encouraged by The Rock’s WM 40 involvement

In the same podcast, The Undertaker opened up about his former rival, The Rock, and his recent involvement in the storyline between Cody Rhodes and Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 40.

Taker said, “No one will say that, but it’s in the back of their head. It’d be in the back of my head. There’d be that side of me that said, ‘Yes, this is good for business. This is the biggest star in the world. But I’m the one that goes out and grinds every weekend of every year. That’s what makes everything so cool. That’s what makes it real. WrestleMania’s gonna be fire. It is gonna be fire.”

The Undertaker, who has competed in some of the most memorable matches in WrestleMania history, said that WrestleMania will be fire with Rock’s appearance. Despites, the recent backlash from the fans regarding The Rock’s controversy with Cody Rhodes, Undertaker believes that the Rock’s addition in WrestleMania 40 will be a huge success for the WWE business.
