The Undertaker’s Boneyard Match with AJ Styles at WrestleMania 36 stole the show.
But will it turn out to be The Deadman’s last ever match at The Showcase of the Immortals? Quite possibly.
Undertaker – or Mark Calaway – is 55 now and after spending three decades in the ring, it could be time for him to step back.
Some will argue that it would be a real shame for his final match to come amid the coronavirus pandemic when no fans were able to share his final moments with him.
We also know ‘Taker will settle for nothing less than the perfect goodbye – he’s made that very clear in the ‘Last Ride’ documentary.
Is that something he could potentially get at WrestleMania 37 in Los Angeles?
Maybe, but Undertaker himself has explained it will take something ‘really, really juicy’ to convince him to appear.
“It would be tough to try to look forward to going and performing a match in an empty warehouse,” he told the Toronto Sun, per Wrestling News.
“You never say never, but to make it to ‘Mania again, it’s going to take something really, really juicy.”
Despite hinting that we may not see him in the ring again, The Phenom did say that he’ll never ‘retire completely’ and always wants to be involved in the background.
“I’ll never, ever retire completely,” he continued.
“I may not get in the ring and wrestle anymore, but I’ll always somehow be involved I’m sure within the industry. For 30 years, I’ve been a mainstay in the ring.”
Undertaker appears to be dropping even more hints that he’s very close to retirement. But would he be able to turn down a match at WrestleMania 37 if it’s ‘really juicy’?
That may be out of WWE’s control though. It’s still unclear if fans will be allowed into stadiums come March 2021. If they are, though, there’s a good chance ‘Taker will be too.
