The Undertaker will forever be regarded as a legend in the world of professional wrestling. His contributions to the business will never be forgotten as he has given 30 years of his life and sacrificed his body. It seems the Deadman had a very interesting backup plan if he didn’t become a pro wrestler.

The Undertaker had his final match against AJ Styles at WrestleMania 36 in a Boneyard match. The match was a resounding success and received a lot of critical praise from fans and Superstars alike. 

The Undertaker retired at Survivor Series pay-per-view last year and since then has remained retired. The Deadman also made it clear a return match simply wouldn’t be good idea.

While speaking to Dallas Morning News, The Undertaker revealed that if his pro wrestling career didn’t take off, he would have joined the army.


”It probably would have been the military. Like I said, I’ve always been one to really know what my strengths, my weaknesses, my capabilities are and aren’t. I doubt if I would have had a very long run in European pro basketball, but I do see myself – if I had to join the armed forces I probably would have been a career guy.”

The Undertaker also recently revealed that he still needs to undergo knee surgery. The Phenom also recently revealed that he would help train his daughter if she ever wanted to become pro wrestler. 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.
