• How Many More WrestleManias Will The Undertaker Work?
DirtySheets.Net exclusively reported earlier this year that The Undertaker is thinking about potentially extending his career to about 2-3 more years after the hip replacement surgery he had last year.
With that being said and given how WWE protected The Undertaker during his WrestleMania 34 match by not having him take many bumps and doing a short match (taking advantage of the match not being advertised), it’s safe to say The Undertaker might work at least two more WrestleMania events.
However, this doesn’t mean that The Undertaker would work once a year, as he has already been announced for the Greatest Royal Rumble event later this month (where he will face Rusev in a casket match). There are also talks of him working WWE’s huge event in Australia later this year.
