• The Undertaker Reveals Why He Didn’t Retire After WrestleMania 30
The premiere episode of Broken Skull Sessions with The Undertaker as the special guest aired on the WWE Network after Survivor Series 2019 went off the air.
During this program, The Undertaker revealed that he doesn’t remember the night of WrestleMania 30 because he suffered a concussion during the first 5 minutes of his match with Brock Lesnar.
Taker was admitted to the hospital after that match and he couldn’t even remember his name at that point. Doctors kept coming in every 5 minutes to ask him about his name, birthdate, etc. Taker said he could only remember his wife’s first name.
You can watch Taker getting out of the hospital after WrestleMania 30 below:
Undertaker said that getting concussed during his WrestleMania 30 match screwed up his confidence. Taker said he was in shape for the match, but his body wasn’t ready for the trauma at that point.
Taker said him getting concussed during that match wasn’t Lesnar’s fault.
“Somewhere within the first five minutes of this match, I get concussed. I don’t even remember this night”, Undertaker said. “My last memory I can definitively tell you happened at about 3:30 in the afternoon when my wife came backstage and we had a conversation. That’s the last thing that I remember on my own of that day.
This screwed up my confidence. You figure after you’ve had a career 25+ years, you’ve seen every situation, you don’t get shook up.
Well that is a false belief ’cause this shook me up. Because I couldn’t pinpoint where I got concussed.”
When Austin asked Taker why he didn’t retire after WrestleMania 30, Taker said it got personal after this as he refused to retire in a match that he couldn’t even remember.
