The Undertaker may have a successor in the future.
At last year‘s WWE Survivor Series event, The Undertaker officially retired, ending his 30-year tenure as a wrestler underneath the WWE banner.
During the year 2020, WWE aired a multi-part documentary series, Undertaker: The Last Ride, covering The Undertaker's life behind the scenes, including his marriage to Michelle McCool and their family life.
During the documentary, specifically, when covering the WrestleMania 30 match against John Cena, Undertaker and Michelle's daughter, Kaia, was briefly a focal point as John Cena is her favorite wrestler and she was in awe of how quickly her dad was able to dispatch the 16-time World Champion.
In a new interview with ET Online promoting the Escape The Undertaker interactive movie on Netflix, The Undertaker reveals that his youngest daughter has shown the biggest affinity for professional wrestling and he believes that if any of his children are likely to follow in his footsteps, it may be her.
"We kind of protected her those early years," Undertaker began. "We didn't want her seeing daddy get beat up too much, but once she kind of started figuring things out, it was pretty hard to keep her away. Of all my kids, she's probably the one that I need to keep the closest eye on in terms of following in daddy's footsteps because she knows the ins and outs and she could probably tell you more about today's product than I can. Yeah, she's really in tune with what's going on."
Undertaker would go on to say that if joining the industry is something his daughter truly wants, he would be very supportive and noted that her mother could teach her about the wrestling world as well.
"I mean if it's in her heart, and that's what she really, truly wants to do one day, I'll do my best to coach her up. Obviously, her mom will too. But yeah, we'll see what happens. We have a long way to go before we have to worry about that," 'Taker said.
Elsewhere in the interview, The Undertaker talks about being concerned that being paired with The New Day on camera might clash with The Undertaker character's persona too much. Learn more here.
