The Undertaker is definitely getting close to the end of his in-ring career—that much we know.
What we never know, however, is exactly when the legendary entertainer known as “The Phenom” will battle his last go with and also up his footwear for excellent.
Though we have all thought about Taker’s in-ring upcoming, we have not really been given any obvious sign of whether he will stop working after his WrestleMania 28 match with Triple H. Until now.
From the Wrestling Observer Newsletter (via SEScoops.com):
"The Undertaker’s time away from the ring has included surgeries on both his shoulder and hip. He was lighter than ever before when he showed up backstage at last week’s Raw SuperShow, estimated at 275 to 280 pounds.
The belief that he would retire following his WrestleMania XXVIII encounter with Triple H is largely gone since it’s not being hinted. Peers expect him to continue wrestling for a few more years if he’s able to compete once annually."
This is the same factor We’ve been seeing for monthsnow: If there was any probability of The Undertaker going after Mania, never you think that the WWE would be creating a buzz out of it?
I mean, Undertaker’s not some regular punk. He is one of the legendary wrestler in WWE of all times.
Include me among the individuals who never think the Deadman is leaving WWE this season because he’s injured and/or seriously injured, and thus, prepared to trip off into the WWE ring for the last time. The beauty of Taker is that, even if he is in discomfort, he only plays once a season and can put everything he has into one impressive WrestleMania go with.
Undertaker likely acknowledges that he can still promote the organization in a significant way just by doing one match in a year, and he will keep do so until his body can no more manage it.
I would also think that both The Undertaker and the WWE understand that they can still get a few money-making ideas out of each other over the next few decades, such as a WrestleMania 29 experience with someone like Chris Jericho or even John Cena.
We’ll see Taker in the WWE ring to put on a few more memorable moments, and which is excellent for the WWE and its die-hard fans.
