The Undertaker has finally revealed how he wants to retire in WWE

The Undertaker is the definition of a legend in the wrestling business, but his mortality inside the squared circle is being questioned now more than ever.

WWE have just begun releasing a five-part series on The Undertaker’s later career called ‘The Last Ride’ and it focuses on The Deadman struggling to figure out when he should hang up his boots.

The Undertaker turned 55 this year and at Survivor Series in November, he will have been in the WWE for 30 years.

So when is he planning on calling it a day?

For the past five years or so, Undertaker has been working one day a year give or take, and that’s normally WrestleMania. With the introduction of the shows in Saudi Arabia, he has also made those lucrative trips, too.

He’s generally worked so little because his body is so broken down. By the time he got a surgery and rehabbed whatever problem he got from or before WrestleMania, it was time for WrestleMania again.

In an interview with People.com, the Phenom said he wants to go out on top if possible.

“When you’re thinking of the old school Undertaker, that’s not a character that comes down to the ring and says, ‘Thank you for being with me for 30 years. It’s been a great career. I want to thank…’ That’s not what that guy does if you’re being true to the character and what people want to see.

“I’ve had this amazing career, I’ve been so blessed to have this career and far exceeded the expectations of when I got in this business. But I kind of want the John Elway ending, you know? The John Elway ending, when he went out and he won a couple of Super Bowls and then retired. Or Peyton Manning, he wins the Super Bowl, then retired.

“When I’m looking at it, I want that match, that match when it’s just like, ‘Oh yeah. Bam. I still got it. I got gas in the tank, I tore it down. Now walk away.’”

Whether that be a WWE title win or just a really great match only The Undertaker knows, but he certainly wants to do his name justice and matches like the one he had against Goldberg in Saudi Arabia last year aren’t good enough for that.
