The Undertaker: I Could Get Through A Match, But I Can't Give The People What They Expect

WWE Survivor Series is weeks away and WrestleMania season is around the corner.

The Undertaker made his debut at WWE Survivor Series in 1990 and throughout the years, The Streak became synonymous with WrestleMania. The Undertaker had his final farewell at Survivor Series 2020, but is he thinking of another WrestleMania match with fans at full capacity for WrestleMania 38 in Dallas?

“Yeah, of course it does," Undertaker said an interview with Dallas Morning News when asked if the wrestling bug still bites him. "I think it’s always in my head and in my heart, especially getting ready for WrestleMania here at AT&T Stadium it’s just like … man. But it’s just at a point where physically, I can’t perform at a level. I mean, I could go out and walk through something and I could get through a match. But I can’t give people what they expect at this point. When you see Undertaker, you pay money to see that guy wrestle. I can’t deliver physically on what people’s expectations are. … The passion is obviously still there. I think that will always be there. It’s just the physical side of it. … My time has come, my time has gone. This is the WWE and things happen, you never know. But I know that my time has passed and it’s time for these young guys to step up and take over and lead us to where we’re going.”

WrestleMania 38 is scheduled for two nights for a third straight year. The tradition began with WrestleMania 36, which was held in the empty Performance Center due to the pandemic.

Speaking about the two-night WrestleMania, Undertaker said, "I like going to two nights now, because WrestleMania was a long night. You’re there 6-7 hours, and it’s hard to keep and sustain that energy level as a fan. You get taken on all these emotional rides all through the course of night to the point where you’re just worn out. So, I love the fact that they are going to two nights. I think it will keep the energy levels high, the excitement high, and I’m really excited about it. To not be actually in a match, I’m really excited for this year’s Mania. Everybody’s kind of coming back out again after COVID and everything else. I think it’s going to be huge, I really do.”

Undertaker last wrestled at WrestleMania 36 in the Boneyard Match against AJ Styles.

Undertaker was at AT&T Stadium on Sunday for the Dallas Cowboys game against the Denver Broncos.
