Though Undertaker walked away from wrestling following his Boneyard Match against AJ Styles at WrestleMania 36, some fans were still holding out hope and wondering if he would make an appearance at WrestleMania 37.
Alas, he was watching from his home.
“I was fine all the way until that first ballyhoo of fireworks,” Undertaker told Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated. “Fortunately, I was home, which made it a little easier, but going through the show and watching, I kept thinking to myself, ‘You should be there.’ I had to work through that. It’s a little difficult once WrestleMania starts. I started second-guessing myself. So much of my history revolves around WrestleMania. There was a bit of an emotional tug of the heartstrings watching this year, but it’s time for me to step aside and let this next generation have the reins and go where they’re going to go.”
Undertaker had his final farewell at Survivor Series 2020.
He is set to be part of WWE’s Most Wanted Treasures this Sunday, April 25 on A&E.
