The Undertaker played his last WWE match against AJ Styles at WrestleMania 36. Within the docu-series 'The Last Ride', the Undertaker admitted that he could no longer hold up the efforts required by professional wrestling and did not want to spoil his image.
The 'Deadman' has officially retired from the 2020 Survivor Series, where his extraordinary career had begun 30 years earlier. In addition to being a seven-time world champion, the 'Phenom' won the 2007 Royal Rumble match, becoming the first wrestler in history to win the royal brawl by entering as the last participant.
In the latest edition of his 'Hall of Fame' podcast, Booker T did not rule out that Taker may return to the ring again in the future.
Booker T reflects on The Undertaker
“People are still wondering if The Undertaker will return to the ring in the future.
I don't think we will see Taker again in this edition of WrestleMania, he has been retired for too little time. My opinion is that he will be back to fight in a few years, perhaps at the Showcase of the Immortals" - said Booker T.
The two-time WWE Hall of Famer did not like the performance of the men's Royal Rumble match: “I think it was a little too flat. Missed those twists that leave you speechless. One of the functions of the Royal Rumble match has always been to bring back those we didn't expect to see.
With the exception of Brock Lesnar's victory, there were no particular surprises." Booker T ruled out his return to the square: “I am often asked if I will return to fight in WWE, but my answer is always the same. I'm glad I'm no longer in the ring, actually, that's the reason why I'm still in great shape.
Even when I am a columnist in PPV pre-shows, I always stay quite far from the ring. I haven't set foot on the square since 2014 and that's fine by me. My career as a wrestler has been formidable, I have no regrets, but that time is now over”.
Speaking on the Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling podcast, Mick Foley’s former tag team partner said he wanted to work with The Deadman in WWE. McMahon had other ideas, however, and decided to change his character: “They didn’t want me to be Maxx Payne because it was too close to The Undertaker.
To me, that was the biggest f***ing mistake you could have made, in my opinion, because imagine the great f***ing feuds ‘Taker and I could have had, and then ended up being partners. He loves heavy metal too,” said Payne.
