• The Undertaker Comments On His WrestleMania 37 Status, Says He’s Never Going To Retire Properly
While speaking to The Toronto Sun, The Undertaker discussed his in-ring career coming to an end. He said that he may hang his boots, but he’ll still be around in WWE in some way.
“I’ll never, ever retire completely. I may not get in the ring and wrestle anymore, but I’ll always somehow be involved I’m sure within the industry. For 30 years, I’ve been a mainstay in the ring.
It’s hard to say right now. We haven’t finished the last episode (of the docuseries). At this point right now, today, it’s hard to really give you a definitive answer.”
Taker also said that he probably wouldn’t work WrestleMania 37 if there are no fans, and it’ll take something interesting for him to work the event.
“It would be tough to try to look forward to going and performing a match in an empty warehouse. You never say never, but to make it to Mania again, it’s going to take something really, really juicy.”
