The Undertaker is a fixture of WrestleMania. It’s so easy to associate the Dead Man with WWE’s signature event because he is so ingrained in the lore. His 21-0 winning streak at Mania became the stuff of legend.

Taker recently talked to the Dallas Morning News as a part of their series covering the city’s WrestleMania hosting duties. He said it’s impressive to see how far WrestleMania has grown from his perspective.

“And just to see how far WrestleMania has grown – I started at WrestleMania VII, which was at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena, which was to me at that time was incredible. But now, to know that you’re about to do two nights in AT&T Stadium – you’re going to have WrestleMania April 2, April 3 – to see how much it’s grown and how it’s viewed on a world stage is just incredible. And to know that a lot of that growth happened during my tenure here, it’s pretty cool and it makes me proud to be part of that growth.

I like going to two nights now, because WrestleMania was a long night. You’re there 6-7 hours, and it’s hard to keep and sustain that energy level as a fan. You get taken on all these emotional rides all through the course of night to the point where you’re just worn out. So, I love the fact that they are going to two nights. I think it will keep the energy levels high, the excitement high, and I’m really excited about it.

To not be actually in a match, I’m really excited for this year’s Mania. Everybody’s kind of coming back out again after COVID and everything else. I think it’s going to be huge, I really do.”

The American Badass has said he won’t wrestle at the show. He doesn’t believe he can physically perform at the level fans expect. His time has come and passed, he said. Whether he wrestles, just makes an appearance, or is included in a video package, The Undertaker will always by synonymous with WrestleMania.
