• “It’s tough for me” – The Undertaker On WWE Offering Him A New Job
The Undertaker had his last match in the main event of WrestleMania 36 – Night 1.
He officially retired with his Final Farewell at Survivor Series 2020 and was inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame by Vince McMahon in 2022.
After that, WWE started doing the 1 deadMAN Show with The Undertaker, where The Phenom talks with the fans in an intimate setting. All of his shows are sold out and they usually take place before a premium live event.
During his recent interview with Ariel Helwani, Undertaker revealed that WWE offered him the job of being a Coach at the Performance Center, but he declined it because it’s tough for him at the moment.
Below is what The Deadman said:
“I’ve been approached about doing it. My deal is trying to take what I did in my era and applying it to where the product is now. It’s tough. It’s tough for me.
I’m still coming to grips with not being in the ring, too. It’s tough for me. Even the other night, I have to say, man, I was in the ring… I’m feeling pretty good.”
When asked if this means he’ll return to the ring for one more match, Undertaker said no.
