On April 6 at WrestleMania XXX in New Orleans, the jaws of wrestling fans all over the world dropped to the floor when Brock Lesnar defeated the Undertaker to end his historic 21-0 winning streak at the event.
Since that time, “The Deadman” hasn’t been seen on WWE television.
According to a report by The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Undertaker has been training at the gym in recent weeks, leading one to believe that he could be preparing himself for a return to the ring at WrestleMania 31 in Santa Clara, CA.
When asked about the possibility of having one more match, Undertaker said “it’s not looking good.”
At 49-years-old, the only thing that’s kept him going was his streak and the WrestleMania payday that came with it. Now that it’s over, it’s not out of the realm of possibility to think Undertaker is retired and done for good.
It was also reported that he suffered a concussion during the early stages of his bout with Lesnar. There were apparently no plans set in stone before the match as the veteran Undertaker relied heavily on the former UFC Heavyweight Champion to carry him throughout.
The WWE youth movement continues to grow as more and more stars are being brought up from NXT developmental to be players on the main roster. Names like Bray Wyatt, Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose, Paige and Rusev are getting plenty of time each week on television to establish themselves to the viewing audience.
If there was ever a time for Undertaker to hang his boots up for good, now would be it.
