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.

The Undertaker squared off against Roman Reigns back at WrestleMania 33, in a match that saw the Deadman lose to Roman Reigns, who was a much-hated babyface at the time. Undertaker would go on record stating that he didn’t like the match at all.

While speaking to Sports Illustrated, The Undertaker talked about his desire to work with the current Roman Reigns, who is now a heel and has been running roughshod as The Tribal Chief on Friday Night Smackdown. The Deadman stated that a feud between the two would be something special.

“I’m so proud of where he is. The night of Survivor Series [in November], I went up to Roman and Jey and said, ‘This is the most compelling story that we’ve done in a while.’ And where he’s been able to take it, it’s so good. It’s not forced. Roman is hitting on all cylinders.

“I think he’s a great heel—coldhearted, calculated. There is a compelling backstory and you still feel the tension when Roman appears. Like I said, I’m really proud of him. I wish I had the gas in the tank to work a program with him now. It would definitely be something special.”

The Undertaker has been enjoying his life in retirement since then but had also mentioned earlier that he wanted to mentor young WWE talents. We will have to see what is next in store for the Phenom.
