The Undertaker match gave Savio Vega a valuable lesson
The Undertaker is one of the greatest in the wrestling industry, if not the greatest. He had a phenomenal WWE career that spanned 30 years. During this time, he fought with a plethora of top wrestlers from different generations. So it was imperative that his opponents needed to take a thing or two back from him every now and then.
In the mid-90s, Savio Vega was one of the new superstars on the list and had just found his feet in WWE (then WWF), wrestling under the name Kwang. Under this particular character, he fought The Undertaker in a singles match once in 1994. He then faced The Deadman in two more one-on-one fights as the character of Savio Vega in 1997.
In a recent interview with Sean Ross Sapp from Pro combative wrestling, Vega said he learned to work with bigger wrestlers after fighting The Undertaker. He applied the learnings from their first game and could be more aggressive the next time around.
“If you see the two games you will know the difference. With the Nation (of Domination), I was more aggressive towards The Undertaker, more movement, because I learned to work with him. And you have to be on top. of “Taker to fight it. Because otherwise, it will continue to stand and tire you out. You have to know how to work with it. And dude, happy to work with him so many times, ”Vega said.
Savio Vega on his friendship with The Undertaker
Savio Vega was part of Bone Street Krew (BSK) along with The Undertaker, Yokozuna, Brian Adams, M. Fuji, The Godfather, Paul Bearer, Rikishi and The Godwinns.
“At first when I was Kwang’s character with Yokozuna and every time we were in the ring and you see when the lights go out, and you see the gong and people go crazy,” Vega recalls. “It was a good time to be there in the middle of the ring listening to the Colosseum going crazy with him. Dude, I’m happy, he’s a friend, he’s a brother, he’s BSK. And man, j love this guy. He’s a great guy. “
BSK was a powerful behind-the-scenes group that resolved actual conflicts between wrestlers. They were seen as peacemakers and The Undertaker was the locker room manager because everyone respected him.
The Undertaker can be seen emblazoned with the initials BSK on his abdomen, showing how much the group meant to him. Several BSK members attended The Deadman’s final farewell to Survivor Series last year.
