Even though The Undertaker has finished up performing inside the ring, fans might be about to see more of him than ever before.
Survivor Series was an unexpectedly great show last weekend. The matches involving New Day and Street Profits, and Roman Reigns versus Drew McIntyre were particular highlights. However, the crown jewel of the show was The Undertaker’s final farewell. The way Vince McMahon put the segment together might have felt disjointed, but that didn’t make it any less special.
Some fans remain skeptical, and we don’t blame them. They don’t believe that The Undertaker is really done for good. The Deadman has given us plenty of reason to believe that he will never actually retire. However, this one feels like the real deal more than ever. Taker has even revealed what he plans on doing next now that he has wrestled his final match.
During the numerous docs WWE has shown since Taker’s last match earlier this year, the veteran has been shown talking to young wrestlers at the Performance Center. During an interview with Inside The Ropes, The Phenom revealed he has already talked to Triple H about doing more of that. “One of the things that interests me a lot is paying it forward, meaning working with the talent that’s coming up,” Undertaker revealed.
“I think there’s a lot of what I did and aspects to storytelling that’s missing in today’s game. So I think that’s where I think I can be an asset to the guys, guys and gals, of the next generation,” he went on to say. When it comes to imparting knowledge on the next generation of wrestlers, there are few with more of it to give than The Deadman.
That’s not all he has planned for wrestling retirement. Taker went on to say how much he is looking forward to interacting with fans and doing everything he couldn’t do while he was in character. “I’ve contained myself within that character for so long, I’m creating more opportunities now to get out and meet with my fans,” Taker said. “I enjoy that, and getting to hear some of my fans’ stories, and how the character has affected their lives.” He might not ever wrestle again, but we definitely haven’t seen the last of The Undertaker.
