The Undertaker announced his supposed retirement on WWE Network’s Undertaker: The Last Ride. While the world seems to believe that this is truly his last ride, the Deadman might not have hung up his boots just yet.
WWE Hall of Famer Booker T, for one, has a similar opinion on The Phenom’s future. On The Hall of Fame with Booker T & Brad Gilmore podcast, the former 6-time World Champion said that if he was to bet, he’d take the odds that Taker will be coming back.
Booker said that the Undertaker belongs to the people and he doesn’t care if Taker only wrestles once a year in cinematic matches. He went on to claim that if The Undertaker were to just disappear into thin air, it would be sacrilegious.
“If I was a betting man, I would take the odds of seeing The Undertaker come back for one more time for a WrestleMania moment or a Saudi Arabia payday. Anything’s possible, but to say this is truly the last ride for a man like The Undertaker, I don’t see it because ‘The Deadman’ belongs to the people. That’s the way I see it.
“It’s hard for me to be that selfish, but I am. ‘The Deadman’ belongs to the people, and the people are gonna demand to see The Undertaker. We don’t care if it’s once a year. We don’t care if it’s Boneyard cinema style matches, but for The Undertaker to vanish into thin air and go away forever, that would be sacrilegious.”
Nobody wants the Undertaker to walk away from WWE, not even seasoned veterans like Booker T.
