WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart recently spoke with Sports Illustrated about The Undertaker and other topics. During the interview, he was asked about The Undertaker’s reaction to the Montreal Screwjob. Hart said that he punched out Vince McMahon in the locker room after the incident but the only reason that McMahon was in the locker room was because of Undertaker. He said that Undertaker pounded on McMahon’s door after the incident and told McMahon to explain himself. He said that McMahon wouldn’t have listened to anybody else but Taker.
When asked about The Undertaker being the locker room leader after he left the company. Hart noted that he wrote Taker a letter after he left the company to go to WCW and said that Taker had to be the voice of the dressing room and the leader now that he was gone. He said that he felt like he was the leader of the locker room and looked after everything. He claimed that if guys had a problem then they would go to him and then he would go to McMahon. “Then ’Taker stepped in and became that guy. A lot of times he had to straighten out guys like Shawn Michaels and stand up for the other wrestlers. Undertaker was always a force in the dressing room.”
When asked about Undertaker’s possible final match at WrestleMania 33. He said that he liked Taker’s final moment and enjoyed the match. He thought Taker gave it his all and that Taker would forever be one of the wrestling giants and is one of the guys he respects the most.
