WWE Hall of Famer Bret “The Hitman” Hart recently sat down with Sports Illustrated, as a part of their “Extra Mustard” section. He candidly discussed the legendary career of The Undertaker, and what his presence meant in the locker room.
Hart is most well known for being the target of the “Montreal Screwjob,” where Shawn Michaels and Vince McMahon concocted a plot to rob him of his title in his home country of Canada. “The Hitman” said that if it wasn’t for The Undertaker, Vince would not have addressed the locker room after the incident.
“I punched out Vince McMahon in the locker room, but the only reason Vince was in the locker room was because of Undertaker,” explained Hart. “Undertaker pounded on Vince’s door after the ‘Screwjob.’ He said, ‘Get your ass down to that dressing room and explain yourself’, and Vince wouldn’t have listened to anybody else.”
Although there has been controversy surrounding “The Deadman’s” last match, Hart says that he enjoyed it and it was very well done.
“I liked his final moment,” said Hart. “I enjoyed his last match, and I thought he gave his all. He’ll forever be one of the wrestling giants, and he is one of the guys I respected the most.”

In addition, he said that without a doubt, The Undertaker was the leader of the locker room.
“Undertaker was always a leader in the dressing room, always a man’s man. No one ever doubted what he said because his word was good. He was a guy that set the dressing room standard. If you had an issue or personal problem, you could go to Undertaker and he would help you.”
Hart also discusses what it was like to be in the ring with “The Phenom,” and more.
