The Undertaker did an interview with Jan Murphy of the Toronto Sun to promote his new documentary, Undertaker: The Last Ride, on the WWE Network.

The former WWE Champion spoke about a wide range of topics. Here are some of the highlights:

His feeling that he can have one more match:

“I feel like I’ve got a match (left) that is befitting what I feel like that the legacy of The Undertaker deserves. 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,” he added. “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.”


“I’ll never, ever retire completely. I may not get in the ring and wrestle anymore, but I’ll always somehow be involved I’m sure within the industry. For 30 years, I’ve been a mainstay in the ring.”

Whether he plans to wrestle again and potential WrestleMania match:

“It’s hard to say right now. 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.”

“It would be tough to try to look forward to going and performing a match in an empty warehouse,” he said. “You never say never, but to make it to Mania again, it’s going to take something really, really juicy.”
