The Undertaker may finally be retired from WWE. Maybe.
The 55-year-old wrestling legend said in the final episode of “The Last Ride” documentary on WWE Network that he doesn’t intend to wrestle another match, but he left the door ajar for a return. He last faced AJ Styles at WrestleMania 36 in a “Boneyard Match,” which was filmed in a cinematic style after the event was scaled down because of the coronavirus.
“There was a lot of thought, a lot of emotion that went through my head, one of those being, ‘Are you happy enough with that?’ It was just a powerful moment, and you don’t always necessarily get those. Man, if there was ever a perfect ending to a career, that right there is it,” Undertaker, real name Mark Calaway, says in the documentary about his match with Styles.
“If Vince [McMahon] was in a pinch, would I come back? I guess time will only tell, there. In case of emergency, break glass, you pull out the Undertaker, I would have to consider that. Never say never, but at this point in my life and my career, I have no desire to get back in the ring. … I’ve got a pit in my stomach right now.”
Calaway said the five-part documentary, the final episode of which debuted Sunday, helped him discover the time is finally right for him to hang up his boots. He doesn’t believe there’s anything left for him to achieve.
“I’m at a point … This time, the cowboy really rides away,” he said.
