That would be different. There are very few legends in wrestling on the same level as the Undertaker. For many fans, he has been one of the only constants in their time watching wrestling. This November will mark thirty years of his run with WWE alone and that is none of the most impressive things you will ever seen in modern wrestling. Now though, in what almost has to be the twilight of his career (which has never been said before), we might be in for a change.
Throughout that nearly thirty year run with the company, Undertaker has changed a few times but a lot of those changes have been tweaks of the same character. However, there was a short period (well short by Undertaker standards) where he was something different entirely. Now that his career seems to be coming to a close, we may be revisiting that period again.
According to the WrestleVotes Twitter account, Undertaker will be appearing under his American Bad***/Biker Taker persona for the time being. There is no word on why the change was made. Undertaker appeared as the character from May 2000 – November 2003 before returning to the Dead Man persona in March 2004. Undertaker wrestled as the character for the first time in over sixteen years at WrestleMania 36 in a victory over AJ Styles.
All indications from three different sources I’ve spoke to believe that whenever we see The Undertaker next, it will indeed be this new ABA style Taker from “The Boneyard” match this past Saturday.

WWE certainly seems to be interested. Check out some of the better moments from Undertaker’s biker period:
Opinion: This is something that could be interesting in the future as the change might allow Undertaker to do this for a little while longer. It involves more brawling and less serious work so maybe it’s what Undertaker needs to do. If nothing else, maybe he just wants to go out there and have fun instead of working the same way that he has done for about sixteen years.
