WWE Hall of Famer The Undertaker has opened up about his wrestling retirement, admitting that he has found stepping away difficult.
The Deadman wrestled his last match at WrestleMania 38 in 2020, defeating AJ Styles in their cinematic Boneyard Match.
After announcing that he was hanging up his boots for good, Undertaker was joined by several other legends for a retirement ceremony at that year’s Survivor Series event.
The wrestling legend was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2022, ahead of WrestleMania 38.
Speaking on Audacy’s The Bet 98.5 (Las Vegas), Undertaker noted that in an ideal world, he’d still be wrestling.
Reflecting on his retirement, Undertaker said:
“It’s been difficult. That character was such an important part of my life and career. Just being not able to perform again — that’s my passion.
“In my mind and heart, there’s nothing I’d rather do (than) be in the ring and performing. That’s who I am and what I have done for 30+ years…I had a great run.
“My time is done, and it is time to do something different.”
Undertaker has named a current WWE star who he’s really high on, which you can read more about right here.
