WWE Hall of Famer The Undertaker recently gave an emotional speech at the induction ceremony of the 2022 WWE Hall of Fame. He headlined the show and spoke his heart, being out of the character as Mark Calaway. He mentioned the word ‘respect’ multiple times during the speech. He said that respect and loyalty go a long way. ‘The Phenom’ also said he wanted to show fans the same respect they’ve shown him over the years. But that was noted by a WCW star who did not concur to the statement.
Buff Bagwell makes allegations on The Undertaker
Former WCW/WWE star Buff Bagwell took to Twitter to react to The Phenom’s speech and expressed his displeasure with him talking about respect. Bagwell felt that he was being a backslider by mentioning ‘respect.’ He then recalled The Undertaker recklessly hitting former WCW star Chris Kanyon with a chair.
“Good speech by Undertaker. He talked a lot about respecting everyone and all I could think was how did he respect Kanyom when he tried to behead him with that chair,” wrote Bagwell.
It was back in 2003 when The Undertaker was involved in a feud with Big Show and A-Train. On an episode of SmackDown, he received a ‘gift’ from Show, which was Kanyon coming out of a large box and singing, “Do You Really Want To Hurt Me?”
The disturbing segment ended with Taker brutally attacking Kanyon with a chair. He didn’t hold back while delivering multiple chair shots to Kanyon. Kanyon’s tragic life came to an end when he committed suicide in 2010.
