The Undertaker was recently inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. He has had an illustrious career that spanned for three decades. ‘The Phenom’ had begun wrestling training under Buzz Sawyer in 1986. The WWE Hall of Famer has claimed in several interviews that the trainer took his money before disappearing to work in a different territory. Brett Sawyer, Buzz’s brother has now accused The Undertaker of lying about the time that Buzz Sawyer allegedly stole thousands of dollars from him.
Brett Sawyer opens up on The Undertaker
Brett Sawyer, said on the Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling podcast that The Phenom’s recollection of the story is inaccurate:
“He did the same thing, lying, saying Buzz took his money and ran. Buzz stretched him and he [Undertaker] ran. If anybody knew Buzz, they knew exactly what happened. I like all these interviews he’s always made after 1992 – that’s when he [Buzz] died. It just irks my a** when people talking about dead people, they can’t talk back or do an interview.”
Brett Sawyer was a prominent name in the wrestling business alongside his brother between the 1970s and 1990s. Elaborating on his view of The Deadman, he claimed that the 57-year-old only succeeded in WWE because he “kissed a**.”
“Undertaker ought to be glad. He wouldn’t have made none of that money if Buzz would have broke his neck, I can tell you that. Just because he was a superstar in WWE and all that, that’s just because he kissed a** all the time. That’s just my opinion,” said Brett Sawyer.
