Widely regarded as one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time, Undertaker began his wrestling career in 1984, working under various gimmicks for World Class Championship Wrestling (WCCW) and other affiliate promotions. After signing for World Championship Wrestling (WCW) in 1989, he enjoyed a brief stint as a mid-card performer named “Mean Mark” Callous, before joining the World Wrestling Federation (WWF, now WWE) in 1990.
The Undertaker is a very integral part of WWE. While he gets his start in WCW, but it was until WWE where The Deadman indeed became a WWE Superstar. He understood in-ring psychology like no other and is considered one of the greatest WWE wrestlers of all time.
Like Wrestler Chris Jericho, he allowed his character to develop. He went from an unemotional monster managed by Paul Bearer to using the power of his own words, becoming The Lord of Darkness yet, evolving into the American Badass and Dead Man Inc. and morphing into the Demon of Death Valley. His current incarnation is an amalgamation of what has come before this form. But the question remains the same; Will The Undertaker ever retire?
Ever since, The Undertaker has gone through numerous extensive character changes, has won multiple WWE Titles, and was once the major selling point of WrestleMania in his own time. And here his legendary undefeated WrestleMania streak began in 1991 when he defeated Wrestler Jimmy Snuka at WrestleMania 7. Undertaker defeated many Superstars for more than two decades, and Later The Undertaker met Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 30, where his streak became history. Brock ended Undertaker’s two decades record.
Notably, The Undertaker missed WrestleMania for the first time in almost 20 years though rumors persisted that he would appear as ‘The American Bad Ass’ at WrestleMania 35. But he was a no show at The Grandest Stage of them all.
Undertaker was set against Saudi Arabia PPV in June this year, but fans were confused if he would show up on PPV rather than Wrestle mania.
However, It’s no secret that things didn’t go as intended for The Undertaker. Though he is still wrestling in WWE and is a backbone on the overseas tours of Saudi Arabia and Australia. Hopefully, WWE understands soon that this wouldn’t sit well for Undertaker’s health and lets him retire with his head held high.
Every undertaker fan has every reason to think when Roman Reigns announced that he retired The Undertaker at WrestleMania 33, that it was the end of his WWE career. But at WrestleMania 34, he had a quick import match with John Cena, resulting in a victory.
Yes, The Undertaker will eventually retire. It’s an event that will eventually happen. Only time will tell when!
