The last time we saw The Undertaker in the WWE was for his Hell in a Cell match against Shane McMahon at WrestleMania 32.

The Phenom won that match, meaning he would be allowed to compete at WrestleMania again in the future. However, rumors coming out of the clash was that the former WWE Champion had taken part in his last match ever and that he would retire.

Former WWE announcer Jim Ross weighed in on the prospect of a WWE which no longer had The Undertaker as an in-ring performer, and he believes the man isn't going to be hanging up his wrestling gear anytime soon.

He said on a recent episode of his podcast, The Ross Report, according to the Inquisitr: “I don’t think The Undertaker is going to retire anytime soon. I think that when he does retire unless there is complete insanity that has engulfed the world of sports entertainment, that it will be the biggest news of the year, the last match for ‘The Deadman.’

"And I think that last match for ‘The Deadman’ will be at a WrestleMania. When that happens, I don’t know. WrestleMania 33? I don’t know. WrestleMania 34? Who knows?”

For what he has done for the company, if the WWE knew The Undertaker would be retiring after his match against Shane-O-Mac at WrestleMania 32, they would have made much more of a big deal out of it during the build up. 

Considering he was wrestling in his home state of Texas as well, many thought this year would be the time The Phenom would bow out and ride off into the sunset, but that appears to not be the case.

So if he is to wrestle one or two more matches at WrestleMania, who could his final opponents be?

Possible WrestleMania Opponents

Kevin Owens has expressed his interest in wrestling against The Deadman at The Showcase of The Immortals, and this would be a great way to elevate his career even further within the WWE. Seth Rollins is a possible opponent for The Undertaker as well, and fans would love to see either one of these matches.

However, the one that is the most talked about is a clash against John Cena in a 'Legends vs Legends' match. The two have never faced each other at WrestleMania, and the WWE themselves have already teased the possibility of this bout taking place next year at WrestleMania 33 in Orlando. 

They tried to have the match take place this year, but Cena's shoulder injury stopped it from happening. WrestleMania 33 would be the prime time for it to happen as time is running out on The Phenom's in-ring career.

This could be the last match for The Undertaker in the WWE, and what a great way it would be to send him off into the sunset as well.
