The Undertaker is set to ride off into the sunset this Sunday at Survivor Series. If all goes to plan, this will mark the Final Farewell of the Deadman. However, not everyone wants to see The Undertaker’s career end.
One person who does not is WWE Champion Drew McIntyre. In a recent interview with Sportskeeda, McIntyre revealed that selfishly he doesn’t want to see The Undertaker retire. He wishes him well but said he still wants his chance to face him. Here is the quote:
“Selfishly, as much as he deserves this farewell, I’m hoping… that there is still something in there, at least for one more match. Be it cinematic or whatever, or he just feels it and he feels physically good and says ‘I want to fight Drew’, and he calls me… or like he said in The Last Ride Documentary, if Vince calls, you know he’ll be a good soldier and come running. I’ll harass Vince every day, like call him, call him, call him, call him. Selfishly I want that match, but he deserves to do whatever he wants after his career,”
“I wanted to show him how far I’d come since that kid that used to harass him for advice all the time, that wasn’t quite figuring it out,” McIntyre said. “We went face to face in that first match, when I was a kid, and it looked like a boy standing in front of a man. Like it looked ridiculous, it didn’t look believable. But when I went face to face with him in that tag match, where that was a full grown man that finally showed back up to go face to face with The Undertaker, the crowd recognized it and they started rumbling. And I thought, man, we’ve got to have this match.”
McIntyre and The Undertaker have only wrestled once since McIntyre’s return to WWE and it was in a tag match. At Extreme Rules 2019, The Undertaker teamed with Roman Reigns to take on McIntyre and Shane McMahon.
