• The Undertaker’s Retirement Date Is Being Kept A Top Secret In WWE
Every year, there are rumors of The Undertaker retiring from WWE, but he surprises everyone by making a return every time.
He was originally set to retire at WrestleMania 33, but his unsatisfactory performance and Vince McMahon wanting him back resulted in him coming out of retirement.
WrestlingNewsco is reporting that the whole writing staff is being kept in the dark on Taker’s in-ring status, specifically because they don’t want it to be leaked:
“Whatever he is going to say will not be spoiled on the internet. None of us know if he’s done. Other than his wife, I think the only person who would know would be Vince.”
Ariel Helwani of ESPN tried to find out from The American Badass if the final episode of “Undertaker: The Last Ride” will feature a retirement announcement, but Taker was tight-lipped about it:
“Hey I love you brother, but I can’t give you that before episode two comes out…I’ve been retiring, personally, here when I’m at home, for at least 6 years.
Every year I’ll come back and I’m all beat up and everything hurts the next day, and I’m like, ‘Man that’s it.’ And all I get from [Michelle McCool] is a big eye roll and she goes, ‘Until April comes around.’ She’s been pretty accurate so far.
I learned you never say never, but it’s very obvious that I have far more matches behind me than I do in front of me. Nobody beats father time.”
