The Undertaker is a legend in the world of professional wrestling. His undefeated streak at WrestleMania remains one of the greatest streaks in the history of the business. He gave more than three decades of his life to the business and The Undertaker’s contributions will never be forgotten.
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 is a true pioneer in the business as he never broke character for his entire career in the company. The advent of social media has truly changed the way fans interact with their favorite wrestlers and it also has made it harder to maintain kayfabe as well.
While speaking on Cold as Balls with Kevin Hart, The Undertaker admitted that if social media was prevalent back in the 90s, it’d have been very difficult for him to maintain his character.
It’d have been pretty difficult for me to do things the way that I did them with social media along the whole way. You just cannot walk out on the street without somebody taking a photo and posting it online.
Even though I lived this gimmick. I mean, if you saw me in the airport in 1992, I guarantee you I was dressed in black. Because I wanted people to always feel like whether questioned whether I was was alive or dead, a zombie, or whatever they thought, I wanted them to think, he is not right.”
The Undertaker also recently revealed that he would’ve joined the army if pro wrestling didn’t work out for him. 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.
