WWE’s Time-Saving Trick for The Undertaker’s Epic WrestleMania Entrance

One big thing: The Undertaker reveals WWE’s clever strategy to shorten his entrance at WrestleMania 33

The Undertaker, a wrestling icon known for his lengthy, dramatic entrances, disclosed how WWE cleverly cut his ring walk time at WrestleMania 33.

The details:

• In a recent interview on “Insight with Chris Van Vliet,” The Undertaker discussed his longest entrance ever.
• He identified WrestleMania 33, where he faced Roman Reigns, as potentially his most time-consuming entrance.
• WWE’s solution: They had The Undertaker emerge from halfway down the ramp instead of the very top.

By the numbers:

• The Undertaker estimates his full entrance would have taken nearly 15 minutes without WWE’s intervention.
• His match against Roman Reigns took place in 2017, towards the end of his 30-year career.

What they’re saying:

“Oh you know what was long? But they were smart, the Mania I worked Roman. That was a huge, huge ramp. But they were smart and they brought me up halfway. They had my ascension from underneath about halfway. It would have took 15 minutes for me to do my walk to get to the ring and do all that,” The Undertaker said.

Why it matters:

The Undertaker’s entrances were a crucial part of his mystique and appeal. WWE’s decision to shorten it shows the delicate balance between maintaining a wrestler’s character and managing event timing, especially for major shows like WrestleMania.

The big picture:

While the entrance was memorable, The Undertaker expressed disappointment with his in-ring performance that night. Despite this, he continued wrestling for a few more years before retiring in 2020.
