Fans are now finally coming to terms with the fact that WrestleMania 33 probably did mark the end of The Undertaker’s career, following his loss to Roman Reigns in Orlando.
The Deadman is the sort of star that you don’t usually hear from in the outside world, and that’s probably because he’s protected his character and gimmick for so long that it would just feel strange seeing him talking and acting out of character.
OUT OF CHARACTER
That’s not a complaint, though, as you usually don’t get that today – especially with the use of social media, and that’s something that sets him apart from the rest.

Recently, The Phenom hit the headlines where he was seen speaking highly of George Strait and his music, as well as the impact it has had on his career.
It was different, it was refreshing and we could be about to see more of it based on a new report.
Billi Bhatti revealed on his Dirty Sheets podcast via Sportskeeda that we could be seeing Mark Calaway, the man behind The Undertaker, appear on the WWE Network as part of Stone Cold Steve Austin’s podcast.
You can’t be blamed for assuming that it won’t happen because it's something he's not usually been a part of outside of his American Badass gimmick, but Billi also revealed that when he left his legendary hat, gloves and coat in the middle of the ring on April 2, that symbolised the end of The Undertaker.
That allows Calaway to appear on WWE programming without having to continue portraying the gimmick, and appearing alongside Austin would surely shatter some Network records.
Billi went on to note that should this be the case, then it also allows Calaway to get involved in other projects such as a DVD about his life or even a book; things that usually do well for WWE depending on how popular the star is – and who wouldn’t want to hear the details from the man that played the legendary character for so long?
Before we all get carried away, though, it’s important to note that it isn’t confirmed because Austin’s previous podcast wasn’t exactly smooth sailing; even the casual fan would tell you that his conversation with Dean Ambrose was awkward and it wasn’t something Vince McMahon was happy with.
Since then, there’s been no podcast and Austin has claimed that he’s still on good terms with the company, so perhaps there's still some hope.
He noted that Austin previously claimed that ‘Taker agreed to appear on his podcast a while ago, and if Calaway is finally prepared to open up about his experiences, you can bet that WWE won’t want anybody else getting there before they do.
