The Undertaker is universally recognized as one of the most special talents to ever set foot in WWE. The 'Streak' of 21 at WrestleMania is perhaps the greatest legacy left by the Gravedigger, who had to bow to Brock Lesnar in the 30th edition of the 'Showcase of the Immortals'
Over the past few years, the 'Deadman' has struggled more and more to perform at the highest levels, so much so that he has significantly reduced the number of his appearances in the ring. The 'Phenom' played its last match against AJ Styles at WrestleMania 36, unable to receive cheers from fans due to the pandemic.
Within the docu-series 'The Last Ride', Taker confided that he is no longer able to sustain the efforts required by professional wrestling and that he does not want to ruin his image. For these reasons, the seven-time world champion officially retired from the 2020 Survivor Series (where his legendary career had begun 30 years earlier).
During the latest edition of the 'Wooooo! Podcast! Nation Uncensored, WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair admitted there is very little chance of seeing Undertaker in the ring again in the future.
Update on The Undertaker's future
“The Undertaker is no longer very young, he has absolutely no need for money and has accomplished every conceivable feat.
I think he now wants to spend more time with Michelle and her family. It won't be easy for WWE to replace a legend like The Undertaker for WrestleMania, as the Gravedigger had now become the symbol of the event. It is almost impossible not to look bad in front of absolute legends like Taker or Stone Cold Steve Austin.
We are talking about athletes who have had the ability to transcend wrestling" - explained the 'Nature Boy' Ric Flair also revealed that he would have liked to have been Cesaro's manager: "This idea was born four or five years ago, but it didn't come true.
It would have been great to work with a guy like him, he has the potential to do amazing things. He is an intelligent and very skilled boy in the ring." We rarely see The Undertaker inside a WWE arena these days. Perhaps, The Deadman has one more match left in soul, but he's no longer around the locker room to hand out his verbal expertise.
It appears that Randy Orton has now taken on that role. Since 2002, The Viper has maintained a steadfast profile in WWE. This third-generation star has done it all in WWE and he keeps doing it so very well.
