Undertaker’s son speaks about pressures of following in his father’s footsteps

In an interview with Chandler Sorrells, The Undertaker’s son Gunner (born in 1993) was asked if ever considered following in his famous father’s footsteps in WWE:

“Yeah, I say as a kid definitely you see it so much you’re like, ‘How cool would that be?’ In my eyes, it was like being a superhero. You know I tried to [go to shows] I tried to but most of them fell on a school night but as a kid definitely. As I got older into the teenage you wanna be independent and find your own interests so you know in my young adult life I kind of strayed away from it. Tuned in only it’s necessary.”

“But now I went to Full Sail. I got my Bachelors as a video game artist so that’s kind of the path I’m setting for myself. I’d like to within the next 5 to 10 years — I’d love to be an artist for a team like a production company for video games and somewhere I can use my skills. I’d love to own my own indie company and just call out to all the artists and creative people and make our own games just to see what happens. That would be great if I can work and lead my own company and travel. Pack light and do what I like to do all around the world. That’s kinda always been the dream that allows me to do something that allows me to travel.”

    “Drop your nuts and man up”, yeah.

    Taker without his costume, hair dye, bandana etc also looks a bit of a geek, to be fair.

    You can see a bit of Taker in him as far as looks go, but he is such a geeky looking guy that it is hard to imagine he is the offspring of someone as intimidating as Taker.

  • Knowing how Taker is in real life, probably not, actually. The kid is full grown, I doubt Taker gives him a dime anymore, and wants him to earn his own way.

    Props for him actually wanting to work. I’m sure he could live off daddy’s money for the duration of his existence
