Ric Flair thinks that the Undertaker will wrestle one more match before retiring for good. The Deadman had confirmed his retirement on the ‘Last Ride’ documentary on the WWE Network. He wrestled his last match at WrestleMania 36 in a ‘Boneyard match’ against AJ Styles.
One more match
Undertaker wrestling his final match at WrestleMania seems like a fitting way to hang up his legendary boots. However, the Nature Boy strongly believes that Taker has one more match in him.
He believes Undertaker should wrestle his final match in front of a crowd of 80-90,000 fans. The ideal location would be WrestleMania 37, provided COVID-19 is under control.
“I think he will be back”, said Flair. “I think he wants it and I think the fans deserve to see him go out in front of 80 or 90,000 people live. I think he needs to wrestle again once we get this COVID under control and I would think it will be at ‘Mania.”
Flair praised Taker’s match against AJ Styles but added, “I’m sure AJ would jump off the top of a building to get back in the ring with him.”
Will Undertaker come out of retirement?
Ric Flair revealed this information in an interview with Inside the Ropes. This news may or may not come as a surprise to fans.
Undertaker looked set to hang up his boots after WrestleMania 33. He swerved the fans and returned at WrestleMania 34 to beat John Cena in less than five minutes. Taker missed WrestleMania 35, but returned on the Raw after WrestleMania, interrupting Elias’ performance.
Undertaker’s match with AJ Styles proved that he could still hang with some of the best wrestlers in the world. His tag team match alongside Roman Reigns proved that he can still deliver an impactful performance with young guns like Roman Reigns and Drew McIntyre. A final match at WrestleMania 37 would be a fitting end to a 30-year career.
Undertaker completes 30 years in WWE
Undertaker returns at Survivor Series in November. The PPV will revolve around the Deadman completing thirty years in WWE.
Taker debuted at Survivor Series 1990 as a part of the Million Dollar Team. At Survivor Series 2015, he and kayfabe brother Kane defeated the Wyatt Family. That edition of the PPV revolved around him completing 25 years in wrestling. It is unlikely that Taker would be in action at this year’s event, but he will make an appearance in some form.
