The Undertaker is coming off a well-received Boneyard match at WrestleMania 36. The match is regarded as Undertaker's best WrestleMania bout since WrestleMania 29 against CM Punk and could be a perfect send-off for The Undertaker.
In The Last Ride docuseries, WWE chronicles The Undertaker's last three years in the ring, from what looked to be his last match against Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 33 up to the Boneyard match this year. Undertaker believes he has another match left in him, but it might take something special for him to return to the ring.
“I feel like I’ve got a match (left) that is befitting what I feel like that the legacy of The Undertaker deserves,” Undertaker told The Toronto Sun. “But the hard part is, if I grade myself, I grade myself on where I was physically in the early 2000s. I don’t grade myself on the curve of it being 2020 and being 55 years old. The expectations of what I have for myself, with the limitations that I have physically, it really is a delicate balance. You’ve got to take a really good look (and ask yourself), OK, is this the match that you’re looking for, is it in the realm of possibility and do I risk long-term damage?… I have young kids still. Do you run the risk of jeopardizing your long-term health? All this is kind of what’s going on in my head during this docuseries. What I’m looking for and trying to achieve. Trying to come to grips with leaving that aspect of the business.”
Undertaker's legacy was built with The Streak at WrestleMania, but as he explained later in the interview, it could take something big for him to return to the Grandest Stage of Them All.
“We haven’t finished the last episode (of the docuseries). At this point right now, today, it’s hard to really give you a definitive answer," said Undertaker when asked if the docuseries offered him closure should he never wrestle again. “It would be tough to try to look forward to going and performing a match in an empty warehouse. You never say never, but to make it to Mania again, it’s going to take something really, really juicy.”
The fourth episode of The Last Ride is set to premiere on June 14. You can find Fightful's recap of episode three by clicking here.
