Former WWE wrestler and currently Impact athlete Ken Shamrock was recently interviewed by Digital Spy and made various statements on various topics, including the real topic of recent weeks: the retirement of Deadman, The Undertaker.
Shamrock is considered one of the toughest wrestlers in WWE wrestling history, also considering his past in mixed martial arts, which allowed him to go down in history as "The World's Most Dangerous Man" Faced with a 56-year-old man, we understand well how the consideration of retirement is a distinctly different thing than that of a young person who has to give his own judgment about it.
In fact, he stated that as far as he is concerned he has no intention of retiring yet, but to work hard day after day and try to get as far as possible, to ward off that moment which in his opinion means frustration and even the beginning of death.
However, within the discussion, as mentioned before, the question about the withdrawal of a legend like Undertaker could not be missing. In this regard, Ken has released the following words: "I can really understand Undertaker's retirement, but as far as I'm concerned I don't want to see an end, I want to give my all today and I want to do it tomorrow as well.
I don't think about my age and I don't think about my retirement yet, I think it's really far from this moment."
Ken Shamrock on The Undertaker
Considered one of the pioneers of mixed martial arts, Ken Shamrock has also achieved great satisfaction in his career in wrestling.
After winning the Intercontinental Championship and the World Tag Team Championship with Big Boss Man, he also boasts a holding of the NWA World Heavyweight Championship. It, therefore, appears that Ken Shamrock has no plans to retire, at least until he feels fit and able to entertain inside a ring.
According to a report by WrestlingNews.com, after the last farewell on Sunday, The Undertaker was seen telling people backstage that he was finally done. They also noted that despite it being a hard pill to swallow for Vince McMahon, the WWE Chairman is not expected to ask The Undertaker to step into the squared circle again, not for a match at least.
It was certainly difficult for Vince McMahon to let the character fade away, but he realized it was time for The Undertaker to call it a day. It was one of the most emotional backstage moments, as even the who’s who of the business couldn’t contain their tears.
The cameras caught all the emotion. So if you’re keen on seeing that, wait for another WWE Chronicle, WWE 24, etc. on the WWE Network.
