During his legendary WWE career, The Undertaker has held the WWF / E Championship four times and the World Heavyweight Championship three times, as well as being the record holder for a number of victories in WWE pay-per-view events.
He was the winner of the 2007 Royal Rumble match, thanks to which he became the first wrestler in history to win the contest by entering as the last participant. The 'Deadman' is known around the world for his infamous 'Streak', an insane record of twenty-one consecutive hits at WrestleMania.
His unbeaten streak was interrupted by Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 30. As part of the docu-series 'The Last Ride', the Gravedigger announced that he was no longer able to cope with the rhythms required by professional wrestling and that he did not want to ruin his own image.
Barring sensational and unlikely twists, the last appearance in the ring of the 'Phenom' will remain the 'Boneyard match' against AJ Styles at WrestleMania 36. Taker received a beautiful tribute from friends and colleagues at the Survivor Series 2020, where his formidable career had begun 30 years earlier.
The seven-time world champion will be backstage at the Royal Rumble at the end of this month, according to 'PWInsider' In an episode of SmackTalk, Bill Apter and Dutch Mantell talked about how WWE currently lacks a top name and only focuses on themselves as a company, and not on their top star.
Bill Apter on The Undertaker
Speaking in the latest edition of 'Smack Talk' on Sportskeeda, wrestling expert Bill Apter has ruled out The Undertaker's participation in the Royal Rumble. “The Royal Rumble is getting closer and closer and the first speculations have already begun that Taker will be present in the city.
Everyone knows that his wife Michelle McCool will be attending the event, so there is nothing to talk about. The Digger will go there to see her compete from the monitor. He may also be involved in some WWE Network projects ”- he explained.
Dutch Mantell echoed: “I don't think we'll see him at the Royal Rumble. He will only go there to be close to his wife. I understand that many people would like him to return to the ring, but those days are now over."
As per Apter, WWE is more about the company as a whole and not one particular superstar: "WWE back then was identified with one main star. People always knew who the main guy was. A lot of people don’t know when you talk about wrestling now, they don’t know who that main guy is anymore. Now it’s WWE, not the guy."
