• The Undertaker Looking To Finish In-Ring Career On A High Note
At Night 1 of WrestleMania 36, The Undertaker returned as “Big Evil” on a Motorcycle and defeated AJ Styles in a Boneyard Match to pick up his record 25th win at WrestleMania.
According to Marc Raimondi of ESPN, WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle recently had a conversation with The Undertaker and Taker told Angle that he wanted to redeem himself after his disappointing match against Goldberg at WWE Super ShowDown 2019.
Angle revealed to Marc what he said to Undertaker:
“The first thing I said to him was, ‘What about [wrestling] AJ [Styles]?’ … It’ll be the best match you’ve had in years.’”

According to the Wrestling Observer, there’s a lot of talk going on about Taker finishing his in-ring career:
