In recent days The Undertaker has decided to remove WWE affiliations from his social media. According to some insiders, this choice could represent the end of Deadman's career in wrestling at age 53. During the latest edition of the X-Pac 1,2,360 podcast, Sean Waltman expressed his opinion on this affair: “If anyone ever followed Shawn Michaels on social media before he took the job back at the Performance Center it was a similar situation.
Shawn was taking outside appearances; I did appearances with him. For independent wrestling shows, the catch was it has to be separate, the appearance has to be separate, it’s not part of the wrestling show. So, I am pretty sure that’s what it’s going to be for Taker too.
Let’s say for instance, somebody that brings in people like that in, as far as wrestling promotions that have a good name. Maryland Championship Wrestling, I did appearances; Shawn [Michaels], Scott [Hall], Kevin [Nash] and I did appearances together for them and they kept it separate it was like a little fan fest separate."
After his match at Crown Jewel, Pro Wrestling Torch's Wade Keller wrote that Undertaker looked "brittle", and Jason Powell of Pro Wrestling Dot Netsaid 'they [Undertaker, Kane, Michaels and Triple H] need to accept their limitations, stop pretending they belong in main events'
