The Undertaker Details Working With The New Day On Netflix’s 'Escape The Undertaker’
“They’re so creative and even in situations like that, they bring so much energy and creativity.”
One of the more eyebrow raising events that took place in the wrestling world this year was the teaming of The New Day and The Undertaker for the Netflix interactive movie ‘Escape The Undertaker’, in which Big E, Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods had to make their way through The Deadman’s spooky house.
Now Taker himself has spoken about the project, saying the following on an appearance on WWE’s The Bump:
“That was a really ambitious shooting schedule because New Day had their commitments for their house shows and TV and everything, so we shot that in a week. It was really long days but those guys are awesome, they’re so creative and even in situations like that, they bring so much energy and creativity. It was really fun, I think that they were the ideal guests to do that but it was fun being able to have that kind of a project with those guys and I’m really happy with how it turned out.
“It was funny, I was doing a Zoom interview and my daughter was in her room and she was actually playing the game, so I’m trying to conduct this interview and I can hear her talking trash like ‘no, don’t do that, don’t go that way!’ So, it’s been a lot of fun, we’ve [family] all played it together and of course, my daughter was telling me not to go that way or this way. After all these years, it’s interesting, I’ve never even heard of an interactive movie and when they told me and explained the concept, I thought it was really cool. So, this whole new era of people, hopefully, get exposed to The Undertaker and go back and figure out who he is and then catch back up and hopefully, we can continue with a few more years of entertainment.”
