Wrestling veteran comments on The Undertaker
by SIMONE BRUGNOLI | VIEW 611
The Undertaker is arguably one of the most popular wrestlers of all time. Thanks to his extraordinary charisma and his iconic gimmick, the Gravedigger has made his way into the hearts of millions of fans around the world. The 'Deadman' has left a giant footprint on this business, as well as taking part in numerous memorable feuds.
Barring unlikely twists, his last match is destined to remain the one against AJ Styles at Wrestlemania 36. Within the docu-series 'The Last Ride', the 'Phenom' had admitted that he was no longer able to sustain the rhythms required by professional wrestling and did not want to ruin his image.
His official retirement took place at the Survivor Series 2020, where his very long career had begun 30 years earlier. This year, Taker was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by Vince Mcmahon himself. Although he has now retired, Undertaker continues to collaborate with WWE.
Mark has been featured in a number of shows in recent months, in which he tells unedited stories relating to his career.
Teddy Long on The Undertaker
The latest show is expected to take place in San Antonio, Texas on Friday January 27, 2023, the day before the Royal Rumble.
In a recent interview with Sportskeeda, former SmackDown general manager Teddy Long said he was disappointed not to be invited to the induction ceremony of The Undertaker into the HOF: “Well, I was not called. I have no idea who handled the invitations and I don't even want to know.
I am quite convinced that John Laurinaitis has put a hand in it. I would have liked to have been there, but obviously WWE didn't want me." Long also returned to Vince McMahon's resounding goodbye: “When all those allegations came out, it was really a shock to me.
I know Vince well, having worked with him for several years. He had a great business sense and has always been very professional. As Michael Cole told me a long time ago, Vince's life was all about wrestling. His decision surprised me." In an announcement on the company's website, WWE explained what fans can expect from the speaking event: "UNDERTAKER 1 deadMAN SHOW will feature The Phenom in an intimate setting, sharing never-before-heard stories from his Hall of Fame career and taking questions from the WWE Universe in attendance." WWE confirmed that tickets will be available for purchase on Tuesday, November 15, at 10AM CT from techportcenter.com.
