The Undertaker defeated AJ Styles at WrestleMania 36 and he rode off into the night after the Boneyard Match was over. When does The Undertaker plan on retiring?
We previously noted The Undertaker stated that facing AJ Styles would be his best match in years. This was something that he said to Kurt Angle which the Olympic hero noted during an interview with Mark Raimondi.
The WWE Network special for Taker called The Last Ride included him saying something very interesting about the end of his legendary career.
“I’m gonna go out with a match fitting The Undertaker. That’s what separates being good – great – and being a legend.”
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter also noted that “There’s a lot of talk that [The Undertaker] wanted to retire on a good note because he’s had these bad matches. If that’s the case, this would be the way to retire.” It stands to reason that it is much more likely The Undertaker will hang up his boots after a good match than a bad one.
Fans widely praised The Boneyard Match at WrestleMania 36 against AJ Styles. It was a cinematic match, but plenty of fans and Superstars like loved it.
It is expected that The Undertaker will be back. He will also likely maintain the new evolution on his American Badass persona.
The Undertaker signed a very long contract with WWE that is practically a lifetime deal. This came after Taker got too close to AEW through Starrcast and Vince McMahon gave him an very hefty offer.
Mark Calaway’s career as The Undertaker in WWE can’t last forever. He does seem to be looking toward the end of his career which he plans to end on a high note.
