Matt Riddle Blasts Undertaker- ‘Today’s Wrestlers Are Smarter’
During an interview with the Joe Rogan podcast, Matt spoke on how times have changed with less emphasis on a gun-ho approach. He said: “I would say to the Undertaker and everybody else, times have changed, the human race and everyone is evolving and yes we don’t carry knives and guns to work because we have metal detectors to keep us safe, so people don’t do that.
“We have a wellness policy where we are all getting tested regularly, so we are safe and in our right state of mind. I love my job; I show up to work, and I am a former professional UFC fighter that broke people’s jaws on a steel cage, something that wasn’t around when he was a young man.
“And I bet if it was, he still wasn’t step up because it takes a different breath, so that’s that and he shouldn’t say certain things about the upcoming roster because we are real savages not pretend ones so he should watch out.”
Nevertheless, Matt revealed that he still values The Undertaker’s opinion. He continued: “But I still respect him, I think just a little oversell us, and I don’t think he wanted to be mean. I just think he thought his time was tougher, and I would say this when he worked, times weren’t tougher. They weren’t smart either, and they were dummer.
“They abused certain things, they abused their bodies, and they are all paying the price for it.” And he praised the modern generation for pushing the boundaries of what is possible: “Today’s wrestlers are smarter, who work smarter, and if they think they took more bumps, we don’t work the same schedule you were working.
“And you can’t say we are softer for that were more smarter and educated like the modern-day athlete, and we are not getting hurt that much, we training smart, we eat healthier, and we do things better because people in the past made so many mistakes that we learnt from them and now we don’t make those same mistakes anymore.”
