Onnit's new Stories series features future WWE Hall of Famer The Undertaker talking about his experiences in pro wrestling and giving advice to indie wrestlers Ricky Starks and his tag team partner Aaron Solow. This new pro wrestling documentary series that focuses on the indies.
In the latter part of the episode, Taker was asked by Solow about if he ever considered quitting the business while he was wrestling full-time. This is when “The Deadman” responded by stating no as he always made the decision to push through the rough stretch that he or WWE was in at the time.
Taker was last seen in action when he and Kane lost to Triple H and Shawn Michaels in a tag team match at the WWE Crown Jewel special. Now, while at the tail-end of his career, his mindset has changed when it comes to his body.
"You know, at the tail-end now, I really have to put everything into perspective, and what damage I'm doing at this point, to myself, and my life after wrestling," Taker said. "But when I was going full-time, no. Even when the business took a real nose-dive, you're thinking, 'OK, how are we gonna get out of this? What we gonna do? We can work harder.' The one thing I was really good at, and in my mind anyway, if anybody else feels that way is another story, but in my mind, I felt like it was always where I belonged, and what I should be doing. Obviously there were times where money was... but instead of, 'Man, I need to get me a job at the Jiffy Lube and figure out something else later on...', It was, 'What can we do to make this product where we want to see it?'"
