Jake Hager Recalls Advice From The Undertaker During WWE Run
Good advice from The Deadman
Jake Hager has revealed the best piece of advice he has received in wrestling came from the Undertaker during his run in WWE.
Then known as Jack Swagger, Hager was pulled to the side for a chat by the legendary Undertaker about how to value himself as a talent.
Appearing as a guest on AEW’s Unrestricted podcast, Hager said: "Undertaker pulled me aside. I did something which he didn’t like. So he made a point to tell me about it, but it was a good talk.
"He pulled me aside and he was like, ‘this job is only worth it if you’re on top, as far as financially. In the middle and down at the bottom there’s a lot of scrapping. You’re away on the road too much. You need to be on top for it to be worth it.'
"I always took that as a grain of salt, like where I needed to be at and how to really value myself as an individual. Because when you’re being a pro wrestler, you really have to know what your value is so you can know what to ask for and what not to ask for. That speech from him put it into perspective a little bit more."
