The Undertaker has had a long and storied career in WWE and is widely regarded as one of the greatest wrestlers of all time. The Deadman officially retired from WWE in 2020, after a career that spanned over three decades. The WWE Universe last saw him in action at the 30th-anniversary episode of Monday Night RAW.

Last month, during RAW Is XXX, The Undertaker returned as The American Badass and confronted LA Knight in the ring. The Phenom grabbed Knight by the throat and passed him to Bray Wyatt, who nailed him with a Sister Abigail. The decorated veteran then whispered something in Wyatt’s ears before taking his leave.

The Undertaker officially hung up his boots following the cinematic Boneyard match against AJ Styles at WrestleMania 36. He was inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame Class Of 2022. However, fans still wonder if The Undertaker would return on The Road To WrestleMania considering his history and synonymity with the grand pay-per-view.

Speaking on the Hawk vs. Wolf podcast, the 57-year-old Mark Calaway admitted that he simply cannot hang in the ring anymore and would still be wrestling if his body kept up with his willpower.


“Absolutely. If I was physically able to do it, I would be out there right now. There is a huge amount of our fanbase that will grade you on a curve. They understand that you’re getting long in the tooth, you have a lot of miles on you, but they just want you out there. Then there is one part of that fanbase, ‘Ah man, he’s old, he shouldn’t be out there, he shouldn’t be doing this.’ Without any hesitation at all, if I felt like I could go and deliver, and deliver a performance that people expect when they see my name on the card, I would do it, but I know I can’t.”

Prior to his retirement, The Undertaker had quite a few legacy-tainting matches in The Middle East. The 7-time World Champion teamed up with Kane against DX in what turned out to be a horrific display of performances from the legends involved. The Undertaker also wrestled Bill Goldberg in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in what was labeled a nightmarish botch show considering how deeply fans were heartbroken at the terrible performances of both wrestlers.

It’s obvious that The Undertaker won’t be returning to the ring again. However, fans would still continue to expect to hear the iconic “dong” around WrestleMania season for years to come.
