Although nothing has yet been confirmed, many members of the WWE Universe feel next year's biggest professional wrestling event will be the ideal location for the Undertaker's retirement.

WrestleMania 32 is scheduled to take place at the AT&T stadium in Arlington, Texas on April 3 2016 and it could well be the venue to hold the biggest capacity for any WWE event.


The state of Texas is significant to many big names of WWE such as Stone Cold Steve Austin, Shawn Michaels and unforgettably, the Undertaker as it is home state to all of them.

With Michaels recently revealing that he has received an offer to appear on the WrestleMania 32 match card next year, it seems likely Vince McMahon will be going down the route of including several wrestling legends for the biggest event of the year.

The idea of this being the perfect location for the Undertaker's retirement match has become the growing belief for many followers of WWE. The thought of this match fulfilling the dream of many wrestling fans by being against Sting has also been floated.

What next?

Even if this occasion is not set to be The Dead Man's final professional wrestling match, it is likely it will come in the near future.

Although his match with Bray Wyatt at WrestleMania 31 this year was good, it certainly proved that Undertaker is not getting any younger and his performance did not seem to wow wrestling fans like it did just a few years back.

If he was to leave WWE anytime soon, despite only making rare appearances in the past couple of years, a huge hole would undoubtedly be left.

The Undertaker has been hugely influential to many WWE superstars, as well as fans of the industry, and his legacy will surely last a very long time.

Prior to his match with Wyatt this year, there was talk of a Hall Of Fame induction for the 50-year-old should he have been unable to wrestle.

This will surely mean an induction is imminent, which he is more than worthy of, and he could certainly continue his influence following his retirement.


The Undertaker could well partake in a training scheme of some kind in order to aid young wrestlers and advise them for the future, given his vast amount of knowledge and wrestling experience.

In addition, he could even go down the route of the likes of Chris Jericho and more recently Batista, in wanting to remain a part of WWE but with an untelevised role.

Whenever it is announced that The Dead Man has retired, it will be a hugely emotional moment for anyone with any connection to WWE, but one thing is for sure - the idea of a surprise appearance in years to come can surely not be written off just yet.
