The Undertaker will forever be remembered as one of the greatest pro wrestlers to have ever stepped foot inside the squared circle. He gave more than three decades of his life to the business and The Undertaker’s contributions will never be forgotten.

While speaking to Victory of Injury, The Undertaker talked about his match against Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 33. The Deadman admitted that he was overweight and out of shape heading into the match.

He also expressed his disappointment with his performance in the match, adding that he let a of people down.

“It was disappointing to me, and I knew in January when I was in the (Royal) Rumble. You could tell I was overweight, I was out of shape, but I knew what they wanted to do. It was important for me to pass the baton on or do what I could for Roman, who’s the next generation. It was just a bad, bad deal. That was probably as honest a moment as you’ll ever see in wrestling. Me taking that hat and coat and putting it in the ring, because I knew at that point I was done. I was so disappointed. Anything else I’d ever accomplished, I couldn’t think of that. I couldn’t think of WrestleMania 25, Houston with Shawn Michaels, all those thoughts were gone. It was, “You just stunk the joint out and you let a lot of people down.”

Thankfully, the Undertaker’s final match was against AJ Styles at WrestleMania 36 in a Boneyard Match and it received a lot of praise from fans and Superstars alike. We will have to see what The Deadman will do next now that he is retired.
