The Undertaker reportedly retired and not under contract with WWE

It has been reported that Undertaker is not in plans for Wrestlemania or the next event in Saudi Arabia, so this led people to speculate what will happen to The Deadman. It seems that the reason for Undertaker not being booked for any WWE events is due to the fact that his contract with the company has expired.

The Undertaker removed all references of WWE from his social media and due to him being booked for the upcoming Starrcast II event, it further leads us to believe that his contract really has expired.

As reported earlier,  The Undertaker is charging $25,000 per hour for an appearance, or $60,000 for three hours.  Dave Meltzer said that if the Prince wanted to see The Undertaker during the WWE Saudi Arabia event, they might offer him enough money for him to change his mind.

“At least as of a week ago he was not doing either [WrestleMania or Saudi Arabia] and obviously [WWE] can panic and the Saudi Arabia show if the Prince wants him they can offer him so much money to do it, but as of a week ago he was not on either show. So I think he’s retired as a wrestler.”

We will keep you updated if we hear anything more about The Undertaker’s apparent retirement from WWE.

    Zero evidence to suggest he is retired unless it comes from him or WWE. Dave Meltzer has been wrong a lot of times. I mean, we’ve literally seen The Undertaker retire and he still came back.

    I’m sure that even if this is that case, they’re in the process of working out his legends deal right now, and will still be more than happy to pay him for appearances. At $25,000 an hour, it will still work out cheaper for them than the contract they had him on where he got a million a year for maybe 5-10 appearances, sometimes less.

    Until I hear or read it straight from either the WWE, or the Deadman, himself. I don’t believe a word of this crap. More rumor mills, these days. Hooray for fake news. This new era is a serious sh*t stain on our society.

    $60K for 3 hours??? Someone has a high opinion of himself.

    I believe when it comes to Undertaker to me I will remember the night he went 20-0 at WM 28. The last shot were it was Undertaker, HHH and HBK. That should have been his retirement match.

    non-wrestling bookings. He is retired from in-ring competition.

    He should have retired BEFORE he lost to Brock, which was disgraceful, whether he allegedly chose that or not. If he was going to lose at WM, it should have been a long time ago. By that point, he never should have lost. They should have made Taker vs. Sting happen, and then he should have retired undefeated.

  • Rinn13

    If he is “retired”, why is he still taking outside bookings?

    I’m one of the biggest Taker fans there is, he’s literally the main reason I ever got into wrestling in the first place. But he should have retired many years ago.

    Way to overdue IMO. Nothing against the guy, but he should have retired after his lose to Lesnar.
