The pro-wrestling industry is split with the possibility of whether The Undertaker would return to the WWE again or not. He bade goodbye to the WWE Universe with emotional gestures while leaving the arena at Wrestlemania 33.
By leaving his in-ring gear inside the ring, he indicated that it was his last outing as a competitor.
Randy Orton has recently appeared in an interview with Yahoo sports and discussed the possibilities of Taker returning for one more time. He stated that both ‘Taker and Mania are synonymous to each other.
The Viper spoke up about the longevity of Undertaker’s career in the WWE. It does not matter how long he continues to appear in the company, it always feels like the same to him. This is what he stated when he was asked whether this Wrestlemania was the last for the Deadman:
“Will Undertaker be around after this? If this is his last one and there’s speculation, all I can say is I hope not. Whether it was twenty years ago or today, when he comes to the ring and the gong hits and the music plays, the energy in the arena, its’s not like that for anyone else.”
The current WWE champion also stated that The Undertaker’s streak coming to an end was perhaps the most shocking incident happened in the pro-wrestling industry.
The unthinkable took place in Wrestlemania 30 at the hands of Brock Lesnar. 70,000 people present at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome were stunned to go into pin-drop silence following the moment.
Almost everybody who loves to watch WWE has an opinion with the streak being broken by WWE. The greater portion of them has stated that it was wrong to end the streak of Undertaker’s career. Randy Orton, Undertaker’s youngest Wrestlemania opponent joined the league.
The end of this accolade might not have harmed his career but it would have been greater for the fans to see it intact, at least until digesting the defeat at the hands of Roman Reigns. These were Randy’s comments:
“I think Taker and ‘Mania go hand in hand. It’s unfortunate that he picked up a loss a few years back, I think that was wrong and I think everyone would agree with me for the most part with the exception of maybe Paul Heyman and Brock Lesnar. I don’t believe that that loss tarnished his career, I just hate that his streak was tarnished.”
