WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels recently spoke with The Orlando Sentinel to promote his WrestleCon appearance during WrestleMania weekend. When asked about The Undertaker’s longevity in pro wrestling, he stated that when Taker came in, it was the greatest gimmick ever but how long could it last was the question. He said that is where Taker has been such a genius. “His success is so different from anybody else’s — he’s just tweaked little things here and there, sometimes big things, but he’s always made it into something new, and he’s made a 25-year-plus career out of it.” He added that careers are a lot shorter these days due to guys getting beaten up but noted that Taker is still here.
When asked about Bobby Roode being called up to the main roster in the future, “They’re doing something really good and special with him, with the whole entrance and presentation and the ‘Glorious’ thing. He’s getting over at a level he’s not used to, but once they get behind you like that, when he comes in (to Raw or Smackdown), he could be around for a long time.”
Michaels also discussed teaching at the WWE Performance Center and more. You can read the interview here.
