There are very few figures who have sailed much higher than the brand of WWE and Undertaker is one of them. The fearless man from The Death Valley is truly amongst the game changers of pro-wrestling, who held his credibility till the last match of his career.
Yes, we did mention the term ‘last match’ above and this time, we aren’t speculating anything. Apparently, the final episode of Undertaker’s docu series, The Last Ride, premiered on Sunday. And in the last episode, the phenom sent a message loud and clear. The man himself called it off after putting his body on the line for 33 glorious years.
Undertaker said that the Wrestlemania 36’s Boneyard Match against AJ Styles is the perfect ending for his career. “If there was ever a perfect ending to a career, that right there was it. If [WWE Chairman] Vince [McMahon] was in a pinch, would I come back? I guess time will only tell there. In case of emergency, break glass, you pull out The Undertaker. I would have to consider that. Never say never, but at this point in my life and in my career I have no desire to get back in the ring,” Taker quotes.
The match against Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania 33 was supposed to be Undertaker’s last match, but it wasn’t up to the mark, as per the veteran. He tried hard and as experts and the fans say, taker gave his best against the phenomenal one. And well, the phenom too was satisfied with his effort.
“I am at a point where it’s time the cowboy really rides away. There’s nothing left for me to conquer. There’s nothing left for me to accomplish. The game has changed. It’s time for new guys to come up. The time just seems right. I think this documentary has helped me discover that. It’s really opened my eyes to the bigger picture,” the legend quotes.
Well, that was really disheartening but we would love to see Undertaker, enjoying his time with the family.
