The Undertaker gave his Final Farewell at Survivor Series last year. This was a big moment as WWE invited back several people who were also responsible for shaping The Deadman’s past. He had a lot of things that he could probably say, but he didn’t have all night to talk.
While speaking to the Victory Over Injury podcast, Undertaker said that he had already come to peace with his retirement. He said it was tough for him to put his hat and coat on for the last time, and coming to grips with the end of his historic career. In the end, he said it was best that he didn’t say much at all.
“I’d already come to peace with my decision, but it was really real once I put the hat and coat on. Knowing I was putting the hat and coat on for the last time and walking to the ring in that capacity, it was tough. It was probably best that I didn’t say much more than I did or I would have killed 30 years of work and turning into a blubbering idiot. It was a tough moment. I had already come to grips with the fact that I had gotten everything out of this sponge that you’re going to get, but when I put the hat and the coat on, things feel different. ‘I might have one more in me’. No, that was it.”
The Undertaker has not appeared for WWE since that Final Farewell. He will likely show up and do something later on, but don’t count on him wrestling. He is still under WWE contract for another fourteen years, but his in-ring career is over and he seems to have accepted that as well.
