The Undertaker has been taking souls and digging holes for almost three decades and it appears that The Deadman isn’t any closer to hanging up his wrestling boots.
It was speculated that Shawn Michaels could have been set to make his return to the ring in the coming weeks and then face Undertaker at WrestleMania in a retirement match that would see the story come full circle between the two men, but this may not be the case anymore.
Undertaker reportedly was supposed to retire following WrestleMania 33 when he main evented against Roman Reigns, but it appears that The Deadman refused to stay retired.
During a recent mini-documentary from Onnit, Undertaker was able to talk about his feelings over the past few years in WWE and whether or not he thought about leaving.
“You know, at the tail-end now, I really have to put everything into perspective, and what damage I’m doing at this point, to myself, and my life after wrestling. But when I was going full-time, no. Even when the business took a real nose-dive, you’re thinking, ‘OK, how are we gonna get out of this? What we gonna do? We can work harder,’” he said via Ringsidenews.
“The one thing I was really good at, and in my mind anyway, if anybody else feels that way is another story, but in my mind, I felt like it was always where I belonged, and what I should be doing. Obviously, there were times where money was… but instead of, ‘Man, I need to get me a job at the Jiffy Lube and figure out something else later on…’, It was, ‘What can we do to make this product where we want to see it?’”
Undertaker is set to return to WWE in the coming months to build up his match at WrestleMania 35, but many of the WWE Universe will be wondering if this is the final time the former World Champion will darken a WrestleMania pay-per-view.
