The WWE Universe last saw the Undertaker defeat Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam. In a controversial finish, Taker hit the low blow on Lesnar and locked in the Hell’s Gate submission move for the victory. From then on, it’s been about the Undertaker’s future in the WWE. He’s not going to any other promotion. Undertaker will either retire or keep on wrestling in the WWE.
What Culture posted an article on the 10 clues that the Undertaker isn’t retiring soon. A couple of them include Undertaker’s SummerSlam match, his involvement in the WWE’s Mexican tour, the shape he is currently in, and WWE potentially needing him beyond WrestleMania 32. There’s always a chance Taker will call it quits in his home state, but it’s not guaranteed.
Someone very close to the wrestling industry, that being Jim Ross, puts up a great blog consistently. He dropped a bombshell in his most recent update. Jim Ross believes that WrestleMania 32 will not be the Undertaker’s last match in the WWE.
“From what I can determine, Wrestlemania Texas will NOT be the Undertaker’s final match but the jury is still out on whether it will be Sting’s last one. No, I don’t see them having a match vs each other there either. Plus, I don’t see how WWE gets all the way to April for the Taker vs. Lesnar ‘rubber match’ if that’s in the cards.”
Undertaker and Brock Lesnar III almost needs to happen in order for the feud to encapsulate. Taker is playing the heel in this feud, which is odd in the most extreme way. Since the early 2000s, the Phenom has remained a huge babyface. The WWE Universe loved him for the respect he earned and the hard work he put in.
Logically speaking, the Undertaker should ride off into the sunset after WrestleMania 32. He has nothing left to accomplish in the squared circle, and it’s probably better to stop before any serious injuries occur. Even though Undertaker is in the best shape in years, anything can happen in the WWE.
That said, who should the Undertaker face in his last match in the WWE? Brock Lesnar is the obvious choice, but the WWE Universe still wants him to face Sting. Even right now, the bout just doesn’t make sense. Sting and Seth Rollins are entrenched in a feud, and the Undertaker is probably off WWE TV until the Royal Rumble. If Jim Ross believes Undertaker won’t appear at WrestleMania 32, then it will most likely come true.
