Kneeling during the National Anthem has been the #1 sports story of the past few months. Shockingly not shocking, not every one was thrilled (see Kate Upton Blasts Dolphins’ National Anthem Protest: ‘A Disgrace!’ and Poll Shows Majority of Americans Oppose Protesting the Anthem…). You can add WWE legend the Undertaker to the list.
The Deadman has always been protective of his gimmick and his personal life. Occasionally, his wife (and former pro wrestler) Michelle McCool gives us a behind the scenes glimpse. It’s generally of Taker training. God willing, for a farewell match against John Cena at this year’s WrestleMania. But this photo of father and daughter caught my attention:
To you, Mr. Undertaker sir…
I mean, it’s not hard to believe a guy who used to go by the nickname “American Bad Ass” would be pro National Anthem. But it’s still nice to see Undertaker taking a stand. About kneeling. While he’s sitting.
Shut up, it’s an awesome picture! And it’s also one NFL dunderheads can learn a thing or two from. Someone tag Kaepernick so he can see it in between his cry sessions.
