The phrase “never say never” is well-known in professional wrestling circles and Big E says The Undertaker is no exception to that rule.
Big E recently sat down with The Sports Bubble with Jensen Karp (formerly named the No-Sports Report) to talk about the various social movements seen in the United States in the last month, his WWE career and much more. During the conversation, Big E was asked about the Undertaker’s WWE Network documentary “The Last Ride” and if we really have seen the last of him in a WWE ring. Big E says he already thought The Undertaker was done after his symbolic gesture at WrestleMania 33 of leaving his coat and hat in the ring, but as we’ve seen before in any sport, retirement can be a tricky subject to tackle.
“I thought he was done when he took off the gloves and laid them down, so I don’t know. And athletes retirement, whether it’s in wrestling or not, it can be very shaky, you know. We all were wrapped up in The Last Dance and obviously, MJ retired and then unretired and it’s very common. And you know, with a guy as popular as The Undertaker – what I thought was, the cinematic match – the match with AJ [Styles] – I thought was incredible. And I think he can continue to have those kinds of matches.
“I think the cinematic match style, I think is kind of best for a guy like Undertaker who’s older, who might not be able to have the 25-minute classics in the ring that he would want at his age. So, I could see him continuing to do like cinematic matches for a few more years. But, you know, it’s kind of, I guess it’s his call, you know. He has the leverage to make the decision when he wants to walk away or not. I don’t know. I’m not going to make any declarations because I wouldn’t be surprised one bit if he returns.”
