The Undertaker is one of the biggest names in WWE history. The prolific pro-wrestler, who ended his career in a Boneyard Match against AJ Styles, said his final goodbye to the audiences in Survivor Series pay-per-view 2020. He even played the part in an interactive Netflix exclusive titled “Escape The Undertaker” alongside A New Day.
The former WWE superstar appeared on the latest episode of The Bump, and expressed that it’s time for the Deadman to be put to rest. He added that he can enjoy being in WWE in other ways, such as working in the capacity of an ambassador.
That Undertaker character, obviously has served me really well but it’s also time to put that away and be able to still use the 30 years that I’ve been on WWE TV and still do things.
The Undertaker also talked about how limiting the character of the Deadman was for him. Seeing as Mark Callaway has embodied many different personas, such as The American Badass and The Gunslinger, it’s natural for him to feel trapped inside the character of the Deadman.
It’s fun, obviously, I’m a Cowboys fan and I love being in AT&T Stadium, the WrestleMania there was just incredible when we were there before, the Jones family is awesome, they really are, they’re such gracious hosts and it was so nice, it was fun to get out there and as great as the character was and everything that we got to do, I was kind of boxed into what I could and couldn’t do, right? So, now that it’s off, this is what’s left.
WWE superstar and veteran Jeff Hardy recently recalled that his legendary ladder match against The Undertaker a blessing. Taker expressed that being a Wrestlemania main event in the WWE is the best compliment one could get.
