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 he also revealed his reason for retiring from pro wrestling.
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 Deadman ended his career after that, as he officially announced his retirement from pro wrestling at the WWE Survivor Series pay-per-view last year, bringing an end to an incredible career.
While speaking to Kevin Hart on Cold As Balls, The Undertaker talked about hanging up his pro wrestling boots for good. He stated that while both his heart and mind still want to wrestle, his body simply couldn’t keep up anymore.
“In my mind, I wanted to do it, in my heart, I still wanted to do it. But I realized my body couldn’t do what it used to do.”
The Undertaker also recently revealed how many surgeries he needed throughout his career. He 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.
