WWE legend The Undertaker has retired from wrestling at the age of 53, with no WrestleMania comeback planned.
Talking about wrestling with anyone who used to be a fan will inevitably start a conversation about one of only a few men, John Cena, Hulk Hogan, Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock or The Undertaker.
The Undertaker became one of the most iconic figures in sports entertainment since debuting with Vince McMahon’s company back in 1990.
According to Ringside News, the publisher and editor of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter Dave Meltzer claims The Undertaker could be finished as an in-ring competitor.
And with no apparent appearance at WrestleMania 35 or either of WWE’s upcoming Saudi Arabia shows in the pipeline, the rumours could be true. Meltzer said:
He said: “At least as of a week ago he was not doing either [WrestleMania or Saudi Arabia] and obviously [WWE] can panic and the Saudi Arabia show if the Prince wants him they can offer him so much money to do it, but as of a week ago he was not on either show.
“So I think he’s retired as a wrestler.”
There had already been speculation about the seven-time WWE champion because he is due to make a non-wrestling appearance at Starrcast.
The event is a fans conference on the same weekend as AEW’s first show ‘Double or Nothing’ with the new independent company being considered as a potential future alternative to WWE.
