The 2020 edition of Survivor Series marked the definitive retirement from wrestling of one of the most iconic superstars of all times, The Undertaker. The Deadman had already anticipated that the controversial Boneyard Match against AJ Syles at WrestleMania 36 would be the last of his legendary career, although many predict future twists and turns knowing the unpredictability of Vince McMahon.
During a lengthy Sports Illustrated interview, his friend and former rival Triple H said he went to Taker for advice when he started dating Stephanie McMahon who was to become his wife.
Triple H: "Undertaker earned this right"
"We spent so much time together that it made sense for me to ask him for advice.
I took him aside and asked him if he wanted to be one of the groomsmen. The only people I thought of had to be like brothers to me, and most of them are from this business. This is my life and Taker has always been like a brother to Stephanie too.
There is the human being in addition to the legend in the ring, and I will always treasure our friendship," explained The Game. According to some insiders, the Phenom is destined to make a few more appearances in the ring in the future, perhaps at some event in Saudi Arabia.
"Over the past few months, a lot of people have asked me if I think it's right that Undertaker retires. Will he be back in two years? Won't it be a mistake? I can only express my opinion on all of this. Undertaker represents everything that is extraordinary in this business, he is unique, he is unlike any other character in history.
That's why I believe Mark Calaway should be able to do whatever he wants. He earned this right after 30 years of extraordinary career," ruled HHH. So all that remains is to wait for further developments, but the impression is that this time there will be no second thoughts and that it will be difficult to convince the Digger to wear his iconic clothes again.
