Everyone is still sort of coming to terms with The Undertaker being retired. We’re pretty sure he’s retired, anyway. The tributes have been flowing ever since WrestleMania 33, and now the latest man to sing the praises of The Dead Man is none other than Hall of Famer Bret “The Hitman” Hart.
Most people who know anything about Undertaker know his nearly two-decade reputation as being a locker room leader and someone everyone looks up to. (All the way up to being the person who calls “wrestlers’ court” to order, if needed.) He’s been the top boy in the back since the Attitude Era, and it has contributed not just to his influence and staying power in WWE, but how much he is looked up to by every one of his contemporaries.
Hart had nothing but good things to say about The Undertaker and his legacy when he spoke with Sports Illustrated, but he also shared a neat little tidbit: he’s the one who requested that the Dead Man step up and take charge of the locker room after the Montreal Screwjob.
