WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross was recently interviewed on the Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling podcast. He was asked about The Undertaker and his thoughts on him taking bookings outside of WWE.
“he’s done many Comic Cons in the past and WWE has booked him at like World Of Wheels or some of those type things. he’s done those and I’m sure he’ll do more of them but when you are in his position and you’ve got young children, he’s not on the road and I’m sure he doesn’t want to be on the road all the time and I wouldn’t at his age and his obligations and the miles on the car.” Good Old Jr elaborated further, saying “I’m not surprised about it and to me it’s just a third part booking. He’s still under contract to WWE and I’m sure WWE gave him the blessing to go make a payday. When I had and was working on (NJPW) I had a contract with WWE and at the same time I was working for AXS TV. Now figure that out? I had a contract with them too and WWE had never allowed that but they changed.”
