Now that’s just wrong. Wrestling is a unique sport as the fans are supposed to believe that what they are watching is real when it is all scripted and planned in advance. This can make things a lot more complicated, but if you can capture the fans’ imaginations, things can get a lot better in a hurry. One certain legend was a master of doing just that, but things have changed a bit in recent years.
Earlier this year, the Undertaker finally retired from the ring, following his Boneyard Match against AJ Styles at WrestleMania 36. Undertaker ended his career as a more personal and realistic version of himself, which was not something he had done in a very long time. Since then WWE presented the Last Ride documentary, which offered a behind the scenes look at him. As a result of the wall being broken down, it is time to see something new from Undertaker again.
This is strange in a lot of ways. Check out the Undertaker doing something odd for him:
WWE has released a new video showing Undertaker, his wife Michelle McCool and their daughter playing the new WWE 2K Battlegrounds game. The video features gameplay including Undertaker’s character and other highlights from the game, which was released this week. This is one of the first videos that Undertaker has released since he announced his retirement.
Opinion: There are certain things that I just can’t wrap my head around and Undertaker doing human things is one of the strangest things I can ever fathom. After the better part of thirty years of Undertaker being the final guardian of kayfabe, seeing him being almost normal is downright weird. It makes sense to have him as one of the selling points of the game, but my goodness it doesn’t seem right in a lot of ways.
What do you think of the game? Will Undertaker ever wrestle again? Let us know in the comments below.
