WWE has been pushing that The Undertaker has retired since the last episode of The Last Ride. They had SmackDown dedicated to a tribute to The Undertaker. However, one person who is not convinced is CM Punk.
Punk appeared on Good Show with Ben Ennis and JD Bunkis where he discussed The Undertaker’s retirement. He made sure to mention he doesn’t think there is any way Undertaker is actually retired. Here is the full quote:
“I don’t think he’s retired, come on. That’s my reaction. There’s no way. This is a guy who can and most likely will, in my opinion, at least make an entrance every WrestleMania. You know what I mean? They just did the whole movie-match type thing as I liked to call it on Backstage on Fox. I feel like that can add some longevity to his career. I don’t see him going anywhere. He’s a guy who in recent years has gone away and popped back up so it’s just so unceremonious to have the documentary where every episode he retired and then unretired and then at the end of it he said he retired again. So it’s part of wrestling now. Terry Funk, Ric Flair, everybody retires and comes back so selfishly I think everybody wants to see him come back.”
CM Punk and The Undertaker feuded on two occasions in WWE. The first came in 2009 over the World Heavyweight Championship when Undertaker defeated Punk at Hell in a Cell. They later had a classic WrestleMania match at WrestleMania 29.
