The Undertaker is scheduled to make his “Final Farewell” at Survivor Series and he’s considering his in-ring career over at this point.
Undertaker recently spoke with The Wrap ahead of Survivor Series and said there’s an old adage of “never say never” in wrestling, but if you ask him, he’s retired.
“I’m going with it, but I work for a man by the name of Vince McMahon, whose motto is ‘Never say never.’ And I’ll kind of leave that there. In my eyes, yeah, I am officially retired.”
Despite his declaration, Undertaker says there’s no telling what he’ll do at the pay-per-view, joking that things could always change by then.
“Well, I will definitely be at “Survivor Series.” And what I do there, there’s no telling. But I will be live at “Survivor Series.” You never know what will happen, and we’ve got a couple of weeks.”
When asked about his post-wrestling plans, Undertaker says he’s still trying to figure things out but he knows he doesn’t want to be on the road much anymore.
“You know, that’s the pickle that I’m in right now, is trying to [figure] out what lane I want to take. I’ve been on the road for so long, that really doesn’t appeal to me, traveling and doing all that. I love to teach. Triple H and I have had many conversations about me working with the talent there at NXT, in Orlando at the PC. And I really enjoy that. And we’re just trying to figure out how it works because I’d have to come in and go out. I live in Texas. So I’m sure I will do more of that moving forward. I think there’s a lot of– I think I have a lot to offer. The product is changing and evolving, but I think there’s a lot of what I bring to the table that is still applicable to the product and these guys need to hear it and see it from somebody who has made it work. So we’ll see what happens there.
