The Undertaker has opened up about feeling ‘boxed into’ his Deadman character, and the freedom he now has, following his in-ring retirement.
Speaking on WWE The Bump, Taker discussed his recent appearance during the WrestleMania 38 pre-sale ticket party. Feeling that his character somewhat limited him, despite his success with the persona, Undertaker noted:
“It’s different, It’s fun, that Undertaker character, obviously it’s served me really well but it’s also time to put that away and be able to still use the 30 years that I’ve been on WWE TV and still do things like that.
“It was fun to get out there and….as great as the character was and everything that we got to do, you’re kind of boxed into what I could and couldn’t do, right? So, now that it’s off, this is what’s left.”
Undertaker last wrestled at WrestleMania 36 in 2020, defeating AJ Styles in a Boneyard match. The Deadman recently stated that he has no plans to have another match as he believes he can no longer deliver physically on what people expect of The Undertaker.
The wrestling veteran has also compared a current WWE star to the late Andre The Giant.
