The sun may be setting on The Undertaker. After wrestling for over 30 years, will the Deadman’s career finally rest in peace at ‘WrestleMania 32’? HollywoodLife has the EXCLUSIVE scoop on Taker’s plans and whom he might face in his last match.
WWE Superstars come and go, but The Undertaker, 50, is a wrestling legend! For 25 years, the Deadman has been burying opponents in a WWE ring. Now, is the casket lid finally closing on Taker’s career? HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned that The Undertaker may be retiring after he battles a bitter rival for one last time.
Many fans expected The Undertaker to announce his retirement after Brock Lesnar broke his undefeated streak at WrestleMania 30 in 2014. Taker was not one to take the loss lying down, as he returned to wreck havoc on The Beast. The Undertaker got revenge on Brock at SummerSlam, but the ending of their match was very controversial. Clearly, the war between these two isn’t over, and the WWE wants them to fight again at their biggest event!
“They are gearing towards having the rubber match at WrestleMania in Dallas in April,” a WWE source EXCLUSIVELY tells HollywoodLife.com. The insider also added that this third bout between the Deadman and the Beast “also might be The Undertaker’s retirement match.”
Wow! The Undertaker retiring is a big deal! He has been with the WWE back when it was known as the WWF, and he’s wrestled alongside legends as Hulk Hogan, “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, Ric Flair and Dusty Rhodes. He’s one of the last major icons of the prowrestling world. Seeing him in his final match, especially against Brock, would be huge!
WrestleMania 32 would be a great stage for Brock-Undertaker III. It will take place at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas on April 3, 2016. The attendance for this event could break the wrestling attendance record of 93,173 set at WrestleMania III, reports Forbes. But, to get 100,000 fans to show up in Texas, Mania would have to be full of once-in-a-lifetime events. The very last Undertaker match would certainly be one!
The AT&T Stadium would also be a proper place for one last ride with the Deadman. The Undertaker, real name Mark Calaway, was born and raised in Houston. He even made his wrestling debut at World Class Championship Wrestling in Dallas and Forth Worth. WrestleMania 32 would be a fitting homecoming for the Phenom of the WWE.
What do you think about the Undertaker possibly retiring at WrestleMania 32, HollywoodLifers? Do you think he should face Brock Lesnar in his final match?
