Undertaker was “disgusted” with his performance against Roman Reigns at WWE WrestleMania 33. Undertaker faced Roman Reigns in a one-on-one match in the main event of WWE’s biggest show of the year in April 2017. Reigns won the match, becoming only the second person to defeat ‘Taker at WrestleMania, after Brock Lesnar three years ago. “The Deadman” left his gear in the ring after the fight, leading many to believe they had just witnessed the legend’s final wrestling.
Taker, on the other hand, would compete nine more times until retiring in April 2020 after WrestleMania 36. It’s probably a good thing his match with Reigns wasn’t his last match, as Undertaker wasn’t very happy with his performance. In a 2020 interview with ESPN, Undertaker explained that the match left him so “disgusted” that he didn’t want to see it again:
“It was one of those times where it was difficult to have the cameras there. That was the first time I looked back at this game. I was so disgusted with it I didn’t want to watch it again,” he said. “At the beginning of my career I looked back at everything. Good, bad, indifferent. As I got older…I know when I’m out there and I move slowly. I know when my limp is more noticeable that it can be. Or if I’m behind at one point. I just know now.”
“[Watching that match], I fight with it. I was so disappointed in Roman. Even after Brock Lesnar defeated The Streak, for the guys looking to face The Undertaker at WrestleMania — especially where Roman was — it was important to his career. Mainly because he crossed over. For me, in this role, I wanted to do the best I could for Roman. I think the world of him. You want to be able to do what is best for him and you know you have no business being in the ring.”
The Undertaker was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame
The Undertaker was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame earlier this month during WrestleMania 38 weekend. Though he retired in November 2020, ‘Taker suggested he might get back in the ring during his address, so keep an eye out for that. However, there is no sign that WWE has contacted the 57-year-old about a comeback to the ring at the moment.
