The Undertaker Believes He Could “Squeeze” Out One Last Match

The Undertaker announced his in-ring retirement in 2020. He'll be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame this weekend.

If the situation called for it, The Undertaker thinks he’d be able to put on one more match in WWE.

This weekend, the wrestling icon will receive his induction into the WWE Hall of Fame. Earlier this month, WWE chairman Vince McMahon revealed that he’ll be the one to induct The Phenom into the Hall.

When a wrestling legend retires, there’s always speculation that they’ll come back for one more match. Shawn Michaels and Ric Flair went back on their retirement words. And even The Rock — who announced his in-ring retirement three years ago — sounds keen on a dream match with Roman Reigns.

In an interview with WESH (h/t WrestlingNews.co), the 57-year-old Undertaker admitted that he believes he’s capable of pulling off one more match. That said, he doesn’t like the risk of ruining his wrestling, and the all-time great highly doubts that he’ll end up wrestling again.

“Do I have one more match in me? If I had to, I could probably squeeze one out,” The Undertaker said. “In my mind and heart, I could go forever, but trying to get the body to deliver what my mind and heart see is the difficult point after all these years. I never want to tarnish the legacy I created and be less than what people expect. I really doubt there is any scenario that puts me back in the ring, but this is the WWE and you never say never.”

The Undertaker announced his in-ring retirement during the final episode of the WWE Network series, Undertaker: The Last Ride. He wouldn’t fully rule out the idea of possibly returning for one more match, but The Deadman emphasized that he lacked the “desire” to wrestle again.

He wrestled his final bout for WWE at WrestleMania 36 two years ago, defeating AJ Styles in a cinematic “Boneyard match.”

Undertaker Should Stay Retired

There is a long list of WWE legends who simply didn’t know when it was time to retire. The Undertaker had the fortunes of putting together an excellent match with Styles to close out his career, and there’s simply no way of topping it at this point. For his sake, The Phenom would be wise to stay retired. He outlined not wanting to hurt his legacy in the interview with WESH, and that alone should keep him motivated to resist the idea of wrestling again.
