The Undertaker: WrestleMania XL Gave Me Closure

The Undertaker looks back on WrestleMania XL.

Thanks to his 21-0 winning streak, the Undertaker has become synonymous with WrestleMania over the years, and he still holds the record for most WrestleMania matches with 27. Undertaker's last match took place at WrestleMania 36 in a cinematic Boneyard match against AJ Styles.

Undertaker was part of WrestleMania XL, appearing in the main event between Roman Reigns and Cody Rhodes to deliver a chokeslam to The Rock.

Speaking on his Six Feet Under podcast, Undertaker explained how that moment gave him closure.

"Here's the coolest thing about the whole week. I've only shared this, until now, with Michelle [Undertaker's wife Michelle McCool]. Something happened. I have been struggling with it since I retired. This weekend gave me closure. It really did. It was fun. Obviously, it was fun. Doing this for as long as I have and being involved and how important that storyline was and is. When it was over and I was running out of the building, I'm like, 'I'm good now.' I don't know if I last match was the Boneyard with nobody there. It was a moment of clarity that I had. 'I'm okay now.' Not saying I wouldn't do something like that in the future, but I don't have that feeling in my chest like I've had since I retired like I hadn't come to peace with it. I knew, just like I knew it was over in the Boneyard match at four in the morning. I'm good. I had no clue, but I knew once it was done, 'You're good. It's time to flip the page and go to the next chapter.' It was such a cool weekend all around and then to have closure to the wrestling part of my career, it was cool. It was a great feeling. It's an amazing feeling because I don't have that pressure now. It's been difficult the last couple of years. I was out there and what a moment to have. I can close this book," he said.

Undertaker previously mentioned that he would leave PLE events early because it was hard for him to watch.

Undertaker is still tied to WWE through his oneDEADMAN Show, which are often held in conjunction with WWE PLE events.
