Speaking with Barstool Sports, Undertaker explained that McMahon didn’t like the original ending of the final episode, after which point the line “never say never” was added in relation to a possible return.
“On the inside, I’m thinking, ‘I don’t move the way I used to move, it’s a watered-down version.’ I also love this business so much and love performing for 33 years if you count before WWE. It’s almost like I needed somebody to put the bullet in there and stop.
“Once we started rolling with this, it was in the back of my mind, ‘I can get to a point where this will solidify it and I won’t have a choice.’ Originally, that’s where I was at until I had to send the last 15 minutes of the last episode to the Chairman [McMahon].
“Needless to say… he didn’t like the ending at all. That’s where we put the line back in there, ‘never say never.’ I’m coming to grips with it. Obviously, as we get close to March or April [WrestleMania], I’ll have that internal feeling like I should be getting ready for something.”
It certainly seems as though Vince McMahon is the only thing stopping ‘Taker from officially hanging up his boots for good.
The documentary series received a lot of praise for being such a great production, but also criticism from some due to the exposing nature of it, something we’d never seen involving Undertaker before.
