The Undertaker’s iconic status in wrestling is a testament to his unwavering dedication to entertaining fans, often prioritizing their enjoyment over his own well-being. However, this level of commitment comes with its drawbacks. Jeff Jarrett also believes that someone else will eventually adopt the Undertaker character.

Speaking on My World with Jeff Jarrett, the WWE Hall of Famer addressed questions from fans, including whether other individuals could portray characters like The Undertaker or Kane in the future due to WWE owning the rights to them. Co-host Conrad Thompson brought up AAA’s approach and speculated about the potential for a second Undertaker under new TKO leadership.

“Buddy, timing is everything, and creative is subjective. But can you imagine, and again, when I say timing, I’m not talking about the mechanics of a match. I’m talking about the whole essence of a storyline and the build, and again, you have, I’ll just use…can you imagine the right set of circumstances, the gong go off, the Undertaker’s gong? Look, Mark’s doing one-man shows now, and he’s very active, [he has a] podcast and all that. So maybe today the time isn’t right, I don’t know. But do I think it’s a real possibility? I think it’s almost a guarantee [that someone else does the Undertaker character].”

Jarrett then pointed out that recycling characters has been successful in Mexico, citing multiple examples. However, he emphasized that in this case, it wouldn’t be feasible without the greatness of the original Undertaker.


“It wouldn’t be possible, in this case, without Mark’s incredible run. Same with, there’s multiple situations and instances in Mexico with this. It’s the nature of the beast. As a creative guy, man, that would be fun to write and book and everything that goes with it.”

The Undertaker even once defied Vince McMahon’s authority in big way. The Deadman permanently retired from in-ring competition back at Survivor Series 2020 and has been enjoying life in retirement since then, something that fans feel he most certainly deserved.
