The Undertaker, who concluded his remarkable three-decade wrestling career in 2020, remains an influential figure in the wrestling world. His legacy resonates deeply within the wrestling community, and he keeps a close eye on the current top prospects in the business.

In a recent interview on Insight with Chris Van Vliet, The Undertaker discussed one of the biggest regrets of his wrestling career. Surprisingly, he once traded his signature black outfit for snake skin-colored tights. The Undertaker wore those tights for his match against Kurt Angle at the WWE Survivor Series 2000 pay-per-view and described them as a horrible outfit. “There was a pair of snake skin tights. I wore it in a match with Kurt Angle that really were … I really … it’s one of the biggest regret. [they were very stylish you know] No they were horrible,” he stated.

The Undertaker also addressed rumors that he had forgotten his tights that night and had to borrow them from his friend, The Godfather. He revealed that he had requested his long-time ring gear designer, Terry Anderson, to create a pair of python pants. “So the rumor for a long time was that I forgot my tight or I forgot my pants and I had to borrow those from The Godfather and Terry Anderson, bless her heart, she did al my gear pretty much my whole career and I told her I wanted a pair of python pants. She went ‘No you don’t. I was like ‘Yes I do,'” he explained.

Despite The Undertaker’s dislike for the ring gear, it remains memorable to this day. As he observes the new generation of WWE superstars, his legacy and iconic moments continue to inspire both wrestlers and fans alike, serving as a guiding force in the wrestling world.
