The Undertaker – How One Icon’s Retirement Can Help Make A New One

When The Undertaker debuted on an episode of WWE Superstars in 1990, few could have predicted the success that would follow that character. Even fewer could have predicted that we’d be standing here 27 years later, talking about The Dead Man competing in his 25th WrestleMania match.

Undertaker will be turning 52 years old on March 24th, a ripe old age for any in-ring performer. He has given his life to this business and has sacrificed his body on a nightly basis for over 30 years in an attempt to entertain wrestling fans. He is universally respected by his peers, undeniably loved by the WWE Universe, and will go down in history as one of, if not the greatest WWE Superstar in the company’s history.

Unfortunately all good things must come to an end, and according to Mike Johnson of PWInsider, that time may be approaching quicker than we all had expected.

During an appearance on The Taz Show this morning, Johnson informed that The Undertaker was in poor shape before even entering the ring on Monday Night RAW last night. Johnson went on to say that Vince McMahon and WWE really had to squeeze this WrestleMania match out of Undertaker, and there was speculation backstage after RAW last night, that this year’s WrestleMania match against Roman Reigns will in all likelihood be Undertaker’s last.
