Undertaker says he was told by WWE that he wasn't needed on SmackDown

Apparently Undertaker replied to a comment on his Instagram account from a fan and told them he wasn't on Smackdown on FOX because he was told he wasn't needed.

What are your thoughts on this? I know Taker is way past his prime and should retire in ring wise, but I wouldn't have minded seeing him on the show. He was the cornerstone of the show for many years after all.

If that's really the case then Vince (or whoever told him so) needs to learn how to be grateful for someone. I know this kind of sounds weird especially on the internet.

Makes sense to me. Taker sucks bad on the mic and he's never really been a draw. If he's not coming back to feud with someone, there's really no point in having him there. Save him for Saudi Arabia.

When you’re short on time on a packed show you don’t waste ten minutes on Taker limping out. I’m sure there’s no hard feelings.

Re: Undertaker says he was told by WWE that he wasn't needed on SmackDown

My thoughts are it's really shitty for Taker to say this publicly. Just makes the company look bad.

I know a lot of fans here are pissed at wwe/vince and like when they look bad - and you could even argue maybe some of the talent/wrestlers should be mad for not being used properly and it's ok if they complain - but Taker is not one of them, as he's always been treated well, a little too well even. He should tow the company line and have stayed quiet.

On topic of him actually being used - i feel the show was too crowded as is. They didn't use Taker, nor Austin....that's not a bad thing. Book them on a future show, spread out some of these legends a bit, makes more logical sense.

He's saving him for the next reunion show as a band-aid.

Nobody needs the Undertaker in 2019, or 18, or 15. Just stay home you old fuck.

Is Undertaker really on Twitter or does someone from WWE control his account??? The blue checkmark doesn't mean anything!

Nonetheless, why advertise him, Austin, Sting, etc. if they are not going to appear? Shame on WWE and/or FOX.

One of the main reasons I watched SD last week was that I was led to believe Taker would show up. These fuckers deserve every bit of backlash they're getting right now.
