The Undertaker dug holes and buried souls for thirty years, but even the Dead Man has to ride off into the night. Although fans would love to see his eventual return to the ring, that isn’t happening. He meant it when that Boneyard Match was announced as his retirement.

While speaking to ET Online, The Undertaker was asked about a potential return to the ring. He made it very clear that his days in the ring are over. He worked hard his entire life, grinding away to establish his legacy in the pro wrestling business. Now it is time for him to enjoy the fruits of that labor and spend some time at home with his family.

“My days in the ring are done. It’s not because I don’t want to be in the ring and that is where I spent most of my adult life. My whole life really. More than half my life has been spent in the sports entertainment ring. So in my mind, I can still see everything. In my heart, you know I want to be out there but it’s at a point where my body just can’t deliver and I don’t want to cheapen the legacy of that character. I’d hate for people to pay money to see me work and be disappointed.”

The Undertaker might return to WWE television in some form or fashion down the line, but he won’t be wrestling. Only time will tell if Vince McMahon is able to get his old friend to make a comeback in a non-wrestling role, but the possibilities seem to be endless in that regard.
