The Real Reason Why WWE Isn’t Letting ‘The Undertaker’ Retire From Wrestling
Widely regarded as one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time, Undertaker began his wrestling career in 1984, working under various gimmicks for World Class Championship Wrestling (WCCW) and other affiliate promotions. After signing for World Championship Wrestling (WCW) in 1989, he enjoyed a brief stint as a mid-card performer named “Mean Mark” Callous, before joining the World Wrestling Federation (WWF, now WWE) in 1990.
The Undertaker is a very integral part of WWE. While he gets his start in WCW, but it was until WWE where The Deadman indeed became a WWE Superstar. He understood in-ring psychology like no other and is considered one of the greatest WWE wrestlers of all time.
Like Wrestler Chris Jericho, he allowed his character to develop. He went from an unemotional monster managed by Johnny Paul Bearer to using the power of his own words, becoming The Lord of Darkness yet, evolving into the American Badass and Dead Man Inc. and morphing into the Demon of Death Valley. His current incarnation is an amalgamation of what has come before this form. But the question remains the same; Will The Undertaker ever retire?
Ever since, The Undertaker has gone through numerous extensive character changes, has won multiple WWE Titles, and was once the major selling point of WrestleMania in his own time. And here his legendary undefeated WrestleMania streak began in 1991 when he defeated Wrestler Jimmy Snuka at WrestleMania 7. Undertaker defeated many Superstars for more than two decades, and Later The Undertaker met Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 30, where his streak became history. Brock ended Undertaker’s two decades record.
