The Undertaker appears to be taking a never-say-never-but-probably-not approach to the possibility of returning for another match at WrestleMania.
The Last Ride docuseries on the WWE Network has covered the last few years of the Undertaker’s career in great depth, but it still might not be over just yet.
Speaking with the Toronto Sun, ‘Taker said:
“I feel like I’ve got a match (left) that is befitting what I feel like that the legacy of The Undertaker deserves. But the hard part is, if I grade myself, I grade myself on where I was physically in the early 2000s. I don’t grade myself on the curve of it being 2020 and being 55 years old. The expectations of what I have for myself, with the limitations that I have physically, it really is a delicate balance. You’ve got to take a really good look (and ask yourself), OK, is this the match that you’re looking for, is it in the realm of possibility and do I risk long-term damage?… I have young kids still. Do you run the risk of jeopardizing your long-term health? All this is kind of what’s going on in my head during this docuseries. What I’m looking for and trying to achieve. Trying to come to grips with leaving that aspect of the business.”
This past April, Undertaker’s Boneyard Match against AJ Styles at WrestleMania 36 received very high praise despite its untraditional approach.
Speaking on the possibility of that not being his last ‘Mania match, the ‘Deadman’ said:
“We haven’t finished the last episode (of the docuseries). At this point right now, today, it’s hard to really give you a definitive answer. It would be tough to try to look forward to going and performing a match in an empty warehouse. You never say never, but to make it to Mania again, it’s going to take something really, really juicy.”
