For a long time The Undertaker has been a mainstay of WWE programming, but in recent years it has become obvious to fans that the Deadman had more days behind him than he had ahead of him when it comes to competition in the ring.
Last year, at WrestleMania 36, Undertaker faced AJ Styles in the first (and so far only) Boneyard Match in history, and in the following days he confirmed that he had retired from the ring. Well, in the meantime he revealed that he had reached the definitive awareness of being ready for retirement during the match in question.
The former WWE champion recently spoke to Sports Illustrated about his retirement and revealed that he made the fateful decision when he finished about half of the Boneyard Match shoot. “About halfway through that night with AJ, I realized it was all over for me.
It became really obvious over the course of that night that I could no longer physically do things the way I wanted to do them. On a subject like this, I refuse to turn words with our fans."
Undertaker continued his Sports Illustrated interview with him stating that this year he hasn't trained much and is living his retirement in peace.
"Usually around October I start preparing my body for WrestleMania. I haven't trained much this year, specifically creating a safety net around me. So yes, I felt at peace with everything."
Over the past few days the immortal Phenom has returned to some of his latest appearances at WrestleMania, revealing how his match against Roman Reigns in the 33rd edition of the Showcase of The Immortals represents one of the darkest memories of his career claimed to have found himself in one of the worst form of his career, which he was aware of from the previous Royal Rumble).
Speaking of the next WrestleMania, number 34, he instead complained about the lack of time allowed to him and John Cena, especially because he was much better than 12 months before.
