The Undertaker Offered New WWE Role

The Undertaker

The Undertaker enjoyed one of the most impressive careers in wrestling history, but what comes next?

According to The Deadman himself, he’s still trying to work that out. Speaking in a new interview with Ariel Helwani for BT Sport, ‘Taker explained that he’s still coming to terms with not wrestling, adding that it’s tough being unable to perform. The Deadman also revealed that he’s been approached by WWE about becoming a coach.

“I’ve been, I’ve been approached about doing it. My deal is, is trying to take what I did in my era and applying it to where the product is now. It’s tough. It’s tough for me. I’m still coming to grips with not being in the ring, too. It’s tough for me. Even the other night, I have to say, man, I was in the ring, man. I’m feeling pretty good,”

When asked about whether he would ever consider returning to the ring, the WWE Hall of Famer, said that even if wants to, he knows that physically it just isn’t possible.

“I don’t think so. No, no. I guess you never say never. I don’t really have any aspirations to get back in the ring. I would love to be able to. I mean, in my mind and in my heart, there’s nothing I’d rather do, really,

Physically, I can’t deliver what I think people need or what people would expect from me, and I have this conversation a lot of times, ‘But you know, all you’d have to do is go out, Chokeslam somebody and roll your eyes,’ and I’m like, ‘I can’t do it that way. I can’t live off the equity that I’ve built up over 20-30 years. My legacy means something to me.’

I tell people that if I’m on TV, I’m taking time away from somebody else that’s going to be on the road and is going to be relevant 5-10 years down the road. I just can’t do it. I can’t physically give people what they expect when they see Undertaker’s name on the page. So I don’t want to become a parody of myself.”

When Did The Undertaker Last Wrestle?

The Undertaker last wrestled at WrestleMania 36 where he defeated AJ Styles. The legend said goodbye to the squared circle later that year at Survivor Series before being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2022.

The Phenom made his most recent appearance on WWE television back in January when he “passed the torch” to Bray Wyatt, on the 30th-anniversary edition of Monday Night Raw.
