The Undertaker's long career ended last year at the Survivor Series, where he received a beautiful tribute from friends and colleagues. Barring sensational and unlikely twists, the last fight of the 'Deadman' will remain the spectacular 'Boneyard match' against AJ Styles at WrestleMania 36.
Within the docu-series, 'The Last Ride', the 'Phenom' admitted that his physique was no longer able to withstand the efforts required by modern wrestling and did not want to ruin his iconic character. Despite repeated attempts by Vince McMahon, The Undertaker decided to put an end to it after 30 years of a legendary career.
Last week, Netflix aired a new film titled 'Escape The Undertaker', which stars New Day members alongside Taker himself. Big E, Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston attempt to steal the Deadman's urn from his haunted mansion.
The Undertaker believes Bad Bunny set the bar “super-high” for non-wrestlers who want to appear in WWE.
The Undertaker on Bad Bunny
During a recent interview with 'Entertainment Tonight', The Undertaker extolled the qualities of Bad Bunny.
The famed rapper made an extraordinary impact in WWE, having teamed up with Damian Priest at WrestleMania 37 to defeat The Miz and John Morrison. His performance has been widely recognized as one of the best in the history of the federation (among celebrities, of course).
“Bunny has raised the bar, there is no doubt about it. He raised the bar very high. So many prominent personalities have made appearances in WWE over the years, but he blew them all away. Obviously, making the complete program is another thing entirely, but he should be paid tribute for what he has achieved.
It was absolutely incredible, I was amazed by his abilities,” confided The Undertaker. The Undertaker reiterated that he will not return to the ring: “Wrestling has occupied most of my life, I will miss so much not performing live.
My heart and mind were still able to carry on, but my body couldn't take it anymore. The risk was that of diminishing my character's legacy and disappointing the fans." Last week, Netflix released a new interactive special, Escape The Undertaker, which sees The New Day attempt to steal The Undertaker’s urn from his mansion.
As part of the interactive experience, viewers are given multiple-choice options to select what happens next in the story. While Bad Bunny’s wrestling career has only just begun, The Undertaker retired from in-ring competition in 2020 after 30 years in WWE.
