During his interview with the New York Times, The Undertaker spoke on not thinking The Rock was going to make it in the business when he first met him. Here’s what he had to say:
It’s really easy. The biggest star in the world. The Rock. My gosh, he came in to Madison Square Garden and they had given him the name of Rocky Maivia, oh my gosh, it was awful. They handcuffed him right out of the get go. And I remember watching him and, you know, the Garden, they’re merciless if they don’t like what you’re doing, and they just lit him up. I was just like, I had no clue to how charismatic he was, I was just like, such a shame, he’s not going to be here long. And it didn’t take long, once he got to the Nation of Domination, it had completely flipped. By the time he was at the end of his run with them, I was like, he’s not going to be here long, you could just tell, he was destined.
