The Undertaker appears to have retired every year for the past 10 years, but WWE is now claiming that his “Final Farewell” will be at this year’s Survivor Series, 30 years after he famously debuted.
While some fans still believe he will be persuaded to return again, and let’s face it, he probably will, the man himself appears to be planning for a future away from in-ring competition.
Speaking to The Wrap, ‘Taker revealed that he’s had a lot of conversations with Triple H about possibly becoming a coach at the Performance Center.
“You know, that’s the pickle that I’m in right now, is trying to [figure] out what lane I want to take. I’ve been on the road for so long, that really doesn’t appeal to me, traveling and doing all that. I love to teach. Triple H and I have had many conversations about me working with the talent there at NXT, in Orlando at the PC. And I really enjoy that. And we’re just trying to figure out how it works because I’d have to come in and go out. I live in Texas. So I’m sure I will do more of that moving forward.
“I think there’s a lot of– I think I have a lot to offer. The product is changing and evolving, but I think there’s a lot of what I bring to the table that is still applicable to the product and these guys need to hear it and see it from somebody who has made it work. So we’ll see what happens there.”
So, have we really seen the last of the Undertaker in a WWE ring? We’ll have to wait and see how much he gets offered for the next Saudi Arabia show to know for sure.
