The Undertaker is set to give his “final farewell” at Survivor Series which will presumably wrap up his career 30 years after it started. His time in the ring is memorable, and he was able to reinvent himself many times along the way.
While speaking to Sony Sports India, The Undertaker discussed the end of his career, and his constant focus to stay relevant. He entertained fans for 30 years and was able to transition his character time and time again to present a new version of himself over the years.
It’s hard to imagine that 30 years have already come and gone. It feels like just yesterday as I was making that long walk at Survivor Series in 1990. A lot of that is just trying to stay relevant and try to keep that lighting. It’s all on the fans actually, regardless of injuries and travel schedules, it’s always been for the fans. It’s a true pleasure to travel around the world and see different people and different cultures and see how your character and persona affects different people. Everyone has their own story, their Undertaker story, whoever their favorite (wrestler) might be… It’s always interesting and it’s always motivating, to get out there and keep yourself relevant so that your fanbase is appreciative of what you are doing.
WWE is inviting plenty of The Undertaker’s BSK friends back for Survivor Series. It should be an eventful occasion. Taker signed a new 15-year contract with WWE this year which will keep him under a deal until he is 70-years-old.
Survivor Series might be The Undertaker’s “final farewell,” but it will be at least a decade-and-a-half before he leaves WWE’s umbrella.
