Following his “Final Farewell” a few weeks ago at Survivor Series, The Undertaker appears to be heading for a brand new role in WWE.
Speaking during the NXT TakeOver post-show media call, Triple H was asked what the plans for the Undertaker are now that he’s retired from in-ring competition.
“Well, I can tell you this, that any time Taker is involved here, any time he has walked through these doors, everybody that’s here is better for it. They all come out of here with a different perspective, a fresh viewpoint, and he’s one of the most knowledgeable guys that has ever been in the business, I believe. Even myself, I learn from him every time I’m around him.
“He is looking now, I believe, to move to the next phase of his life and we talked a lot about it, it involves being here, it involves the future, it involves getting more into that. I would like to believe he has earned the taking a breath off of his retirement for a moment, but we actually just touched base in the last couple of days and that is something that, coming out of the holidays, we will certainly be talking about in 2021, which is just one more reason to be excited about next year, with everything else that is happening. I think him involved, I just… I can’t stress enough how impactful that would be for everybody.”
Imagine being a new recruit and The Undertaker just turns up and announces he’s your new coach. That’s pretty awesome.
As far as we know, ‘Taker’s most recent farewell is one he plans to stick to, but we’ll have to see whether all that coaching gives him the wrestling itch.
