The Undertaker is one of the longest-serving superstars in WWE history, as he has been with the company since 1990.

Having being with the company for such a long time, and despite him becoming a part-time performer in the past few years, The Phenom has picked up a lot of injuries throughout his career.

With the injuries sometimes come surgeries, and during a recent interview with pastor Ed Young, the WWE legend revealed how many surgeries he's had over the last 28 years.

The Undertaker said, via Wrestling Inc: "Over the last 28 years, I'd say, conservatively, I've had 15, 16, 17 surgeries.

"I've had both my eye sockets crushed, I've been set on fire, uh, that was not fun, I've torn a pec, torn biceps. I've had several joint surgeries just to get floating bone chips and different things removed. I've been concussed I don't know how many times, yeah it's taken a pretty good toll on the body."

With so many injuries and surgeries throughout his career, you would have thought The Undertaker would have retired from wrestling a long time ago, yet he wants to keep on going in a part-time manner.

The Deadman thanks the trainers at WWE for prolonging his career as long as they have so far, and he stated just how much they have progressed throughout his time with the company.

He said: "Back in the old days, you had to work. If you didn't work, you didn't get paid. Obviously, our industry has grown, and we're taken care of so good now. It used to be back in the old days where if someone had a roll of tape, that was the trainer.

"Now we have trainers and doctors that travel with us. We're on the same care level and the way we're treated as Major League Baseball, the NFL, but that's just been the progression of our industry, and obviously, that's a huge pat on the back to Vince."

It's unclear as to when we'll see The Undertaker in the WWE next. In the same interview, he hinted at returning to WWE in 2019 with a 'smarter schedule'.

However, as of writing, reports have stated that there aren't currently any plans for The Deadman at WrestleMania 35 later this year.
