The Undertaker’s Last Ride docuseries seemed to indicate that the Deadman has wrestled his final match. Vince McMahon wanted to keep that open which is why they ended things with “never say never.”
Vince McMahon apparently didn’t like the original ending to the Last Ride docuseries. He wanted to change things around so it left a door for The Undertaker’s legendary career to continue down the line.
While speaking with Barstool Sports, The Undertaker revealed that Vince McMahon insisted on making those edits to the conclusion of the Last Ride docuseries.
“That is a great question, that’s probably the best question anybody has asked me. It was in my thought process. I have a whole group of people who are like, ‘You can go out and do this, people will go crazy and they’re going to love it.’”
“On the inside, I’m thinking, ‘I don’t move the way I used to move, it’s a watered-down version.’ I also love this business so much and love performing for 33 years if you count before WWE. It’s almost like I needed somebody to put the bullet in there and stop.”
“Once we started rolling with this, it was in the back of my mind, ‘I can get to a point where this will solidify it and I won’t have a choice.’ Originally, that’s where I was at until I had to send the last 15 minutes of the last episode to the Chairman [McMahon].”
“Needless to say….he didn’t like the ending at all. That’s where we put the line back in there, ‘never say never.’ I’m coming to grips with it. Obviously, as we get close to March or April [WrestleMania], I’ll have that internal feeling like I should be getting ready for something.”
WWE inked a very long deal with The Undertaker that will keep him in the company for decades to come. He very well could wrestle again during that time, and if it happens Vince McMahon already worked out a loophole.
