The Undertaker: Why his career is over

Published Add your comment

The Undertaker has taken us on a quite extraordinary journey throughout his incredible wrestling career. 

The Phenom has entertained the 'Wrestling Universe' ever since making his debut in 1990 and in that time he has become a legend.

His incredible streak at WrestleMania will forever have a place in the history books of the WWE and Taker will never be forgotten. 

However at WrestleMania XXX, 'The Deadman' looked a shadow of his former self as he was finally beaten at 'The Grandest Stage of them All'. 

In truth, Taker looked every bit of his 49-years. Against Brock Lesnar - who is arguably in the prime of his career - The Deadman was unable to reproduce his epic performances of the past.

Lesnar, one of the most powerful superstars in the industry, was by far the superior fighter on the night and Taker struggled inside the very ring that he once dominated.

Let's be honest, the best part of Taker's night was his entrance - which lasted over seven minutes.  

When analysing the match as a spectacle, it had nothing on the fight between Bray Wyatt and John Cena that went before it. Unfortunately for Taker and his fans, it was clear to see his time on the wrestling scene was up. 

It would be foolish of the WWE and Taker himself if he was to comeback next year. A rematch with Lesnar would make a mega event, but it could tarnish Taker's fine reputation.

He looked slightly out of place on Sunday night, but another year down the line, he may look well out of place. 

Of course - for fans of the Deadman - it would have been nice for him to go out on a high, but all streaks are made to be broken and the loss represents an end of an era. 

The Undertaker may well appear once more to give a farewell speech, but a farewell speech is all it should be. 

And 21-1 is how it should stay.
