Report: A Lot Of WWE Superstars Were Very Upset About The Undertaker's "Soft" Comments
The Phenom's comments caused quite a stir at the time
The Undertaker stirred up a debate within professional wrestling back in January after he appeared on the Joe Rogan Experience and called WWE's current product "kinda soft." The Phenom then continued on the same podcast and admitted he preferred past eras "when men were men" and carried guns and knives in their bags instead of playing video games in the locker room.
Individuals from across the pro wrestling spectrum have since weighed in with their thoughts and the likes of Goldberg and Bobby Lashley agreed with 'Taker's "soft" comments while John Cena, Mick Foley, Drew McIntyre, Xavier Woods, Roman Reigns and Riddle all rejected The Phenom's thoughts.
Beyond public responses to the comments, a lot of wrestlers inside and outside of WWE were very upset about The Undertaker's words and at people who agreed with the statement, according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter's Dave Meltzer.
Many within WWE didn't react to the comments publicly, though, because arguing with a legend was considered a no-win situation.
