The deadman Undertaker has been giving speeches about speeding during the construction of his Final Farewell in the Survivor Series. Deadman sat down with SPORF in another interview, while WWE Legend was asked about the importance of storytelling in wrestling.
Undertaker, who hails from the old schools of thought, explained that storytelling is the root and crux of a professional competition. Undertaker said he always tells the young talent that there is nothing more important than focusing on the pro wrestling storytelling aspect.
He said the artists used fighting techniques to help tell the story. Undertaker then cited the ongoing SmackDown storyline run by Roman Reigns and Jey Uso as a good example of forcing a wrestling pro storytelling story.
Undertaker heard that the angle between Roman Reigns and Jey Uso is one of the best news made on WWE TV in recent memory. According to The Undertaker, people who understand Samoan heritage will see what it means for Reigns and Uso.
Here is what Undertaker had said about telling stories and the subject of Roman rule with Jey Uso:
“Storytelling at the root is what we do, and that’s what I try to tell the young talent. Right now, if you watch our product, as gifted as our athletes are, and they are physically unbelievably gifted, more so than eve at any other point. But what we do is storytelling, and you know that’s the most important part, in my opinion. It’s not about the wrestling moves, we use wrestling moves to help tell our stories, but it’s all about – that’s where, that’s what captivates and keeps people interested in what we do. It’s just the mental and heartfelt issues like one of the best things that I’ve seen done on WWE TV recently is the feud between Jey Uso and Roman Reigns. That, to me, has been great storytelling, and people that understand, people that understand the Samoan heritage and legacy, know how important all that stuff is to them. So, to me, it starts and finishes with its story.”The Undertaker
Here is the Video
Undertaker made no mistake about his decision to make Roman Reigns / Jey Uso one of the best WWE produced this year. The Tribal Cheif looks like a million dollars, and the story has also helped to make Jey Uso a loyal artist.
