The Undertaker hasn't officially called it a career, but when he does, don't expect a big retirement speech on WWE Raw.
Following the premiere of The Last Ride - Chapter One, which focused on the lead up to Undertaker's match against Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 33, many have wondered when Taker will hang up the boots. When it does happen, Undertaker wants to make sure it's nearly perfect.
"When you're thinking of the old school Undertaker, that's not a character that comes down to the ring and says, 'Thank you for being with me for 30 years. It's been a great career. I want to thank...' That's not what that guy does if you're being true to the character and what people want to see," Undertaker told PEOPLE.
"I've had this amazing career, I've been so blessed to have this career and far exceeded the expectations of when I got in this business. But I kind of want the John Elway ending, you know? The John Elway ending, when he went out and he won a couple of Super Bowls and then retired. Or Peyton Manning, he wins the Super Bowl, then retired," he continues. "When I'm looking at it, I want that match, that match when it's just like, 'Oh yeah. Bam. I still got it. I got gas in the tank, I tore it down. Now walk away.'"
Taker admitted that he is "close" to retirement. He is coming off a well-received Boneyard match at WrestleMania 36 where he defeated AJ Styles.
