The Undertaker wrestled for the final time against AJ Styles at WrestleMania 36 in 2020 while doing the Boneyard Match, which was a cinematic type bout.
WWE produced the Last Ride series that aired last year that chronicled his decision, which took a few years, to finally come to grips with the idea of retirement from pro wrestling.
The former WWE Champion did an interview with Entertainment Tonight to promote his new Netflix interactive film, Escape The Undertaker. During it, he was asked about retirement. Taker made it clear that he’s done as an active performer.
“As of this moment, yeah my days in the ring are done and it’s not because I don’t want to be in the ring. That’s where I’ve spent most of my adult life, my whole life really has been spent in the wrestling or sports entertainment ring. In my mind, I still can see everything and in my heart, I want to be out there but it’s at the point where my body can’t deliver what my mind and my heart see. My body can’t deliver that and I just don’t want to cheapen the legacy of that character. I’d hate for people to pay money to see me work and be disappointed.”
