WWE Hall of Famer discusses The Undertaker's retirement

The Undertaker is destined to go down in history as the most iconic wrestler of any era. The Deadman's career has been full of thrills and twists, as well as helping to increase WWE's popularity in every corner of the world.

Everyone followed the exploits of the Gravedigger, who wrote memorable pages especially at WrestleMania (where his legendary 'Streak' made young and old fall in love). The Digger stepped into the ring for the last time against AJ Styles at WrestleMania 36, ​​resulting in a spectacular 'Boneyard Match'

As part of the docu-series 'The Last Ride', Taker has officially announced his retirement due to age and physical exhaustion after 30 years at the highest level. The 'Phenom' received a beautiful tribute from friends and colleagues during the 2020 Survivor Series, where its phenomenal epic began three decades earlier.

Speaking on Chris Deez's 'It's My Wrestling' podcast, WWE Hall of Famer The Godfather talked about his longtime friend the Undertaker and the chances of seeing him back in the ring in the future.

The Godfather on The Undertaker

"The Undertaker doesn't need the money, believe me, so I see no reason why he should go back to the ring and put his health at risk" - The Godfather admitted without hesitation.

“He phoned me and told me that he had nothing left to give to WWE and this business in general. Vince McMahon has done all he can over the years to prevent that day from coming. He offered him a lot of money to get him to fight once or twice a year and for some time they went on like this.

Taker was exhausted both physically and mentally, that's why he decided to say enough” - he added. The seven-time world champion is also the record holder in terms of the number of wins (107) in pay-per-view events organized by WWE.

On October 5, 'Escape The Undertaker' was released on Netflix, a hilarious interactive film starring the members of the New Day together with the Gravedigger. The Undertaker believes Bad Bunny set the bar “super-high” for non-wrestlers who want to appear in WWE.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, The Undertaker spoke highly of the Puerto Rican star. “Bunny set the bar, man. He set the bar super high. I’ll tell you what, of all the people that have crossed over and done some cameos for us, I mean, he killed it.

Obviously, it would be different doing the full schedule, but what he did… I thought it was utterly amazing. I was blown away by how good he was,” The Undertaker said.
