• CM Punk Reacts To The Undertaker’s Retirement
The Undertaker’s WrestleMania 29 opponent, CM Punk, was a guest on the Good Show With Ben Ennis & JD Bunkis recently. The former WWE Champion discussed The Undertaker’s retirement there.
Below is what he said:
“I don’t think he’s retired, come on. That’s my reaction, there’s no way. This is a guy who can and most likely will, in my opinion, at least make an entrance every WrestleMania. You know what I mean?
They just did the whole movie-match type thing I like to call it, as I liked to call it on Backstage on Fox. I just feel like that can add some longevity to his career, I don’t see him going anywhere.
He’s a guy who in recent years has gone away and popped back up so it’s just so unceremonious to have the documentary where every episode he retired and then unretired. Then at the end of it he said he retired again. It’s part of wrestling now. Terry Funk, Ric Flair, everybody retires and comes back.
I think selfishly everybody wants to see him come back.”
It should be noted that Undertaker announced his retirement from “in-ring competition” (having matches), he’s not retired from making appearances on WWE TV (just like all other legends like “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair…).
