Never say never. Wrestling is not like other sports when it comes to retirements. While mainstream athletes walk away for the sake of not having to endure another season, a wrestler is able to jump back in and get right to it without having to wait for a year’s worth of matches. That opens a lot of doors, and another one might have been left open just a bit by a certain legend.
The Undertaker was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame on Friday night. During his induction speech, Undertaker teased the idea of wrestling again by saying “never say never” after hanging up his hat and coat. Undertaker officially announced his retirement from the ring at Survivor Series 2020, marking thirty years since his WWE debut. His last match came against AJ Styles at WrestleMania 36.
Opinion: I can’t say I’m surprised by this, as almost no one actually stays retired after saying they’re going to retire. It just isn’t in a wrestler’s nature, and it would be plausible to see Undertaker pop in for a quick squash win over someone. I don’t think I see it happening, but is it that much of a stretch? It isn’t like anyone else stays retired for the most part anyway, so why not him too?
What do you think of Undertaker’s statement? Will he wrestle again? Let us know in the comments below.
