There have been lots of speculation about the Undertaker’s wrestling career recently and the WWE series on the legend called Undertaker: The Last Ride has only fuelled these speculations.
The Dead Man recently had an interview with People.com where he opened up about his retirement plans and revealed how he wants to go out.
The Last Outlaw first explained that he doesn’t think of his character as someone who will come down to the ring and announce his retirement to the fans:
“When you’re thinking of the old school Undertaker, that’s not a character that comes down to the ring and says, ‘Thank you for being with me for 30 years. It’s been a great career. I want to thank…’ That’s not what that guy does if you’re being true to the character and what people want to see,”
Continuing on the topic, the former Champion said that he has had an amazing career and then claimed that he wants to go out in the same style as John Elway:
“I’ve had this amazing career, I’ve been so blessed to have this career and far exceeded the expectations of when I got in this business. But I kind of want the John Elway ending, you know? The John Elway ending, when he went out and he won a couple of Super Bowls and then retired. Or Peyton Manning, he wins the Super Bowl, then retired. When I’m looking at it, I want that match, that match when it’s just like, ‘Oh yeah. Bam. I still got it. I got gas in the tank, I tore it down. Now walk away.’”
