5 reasons why The Undertaker will have one more match at WrestleMania
The last time we saw the Deadman was at WrestleMania 33 when he faced Roman Reigns in a losing effort. After the match, Taker appeared in his signature apparel, but took them off one by one; the gloves, his coat and his hat, and lay it in the ring, apparently as a sign of leaving behind his legacy.
Then, he went to the ringside, where his wife, Michelle McCool, was in the audience and kissed her, breaking character in the process. Then, he went off the stage, as the cameras focused on his gear in the ring. Even as the show went off the air, and the process of cleaning up the arena was underway, the gear was left undisturbed the whole time.
However, tonight, the Phenom arrived and left everyone equally stunned and confused about his future, with his short and simple speech. But, here are 5 reasons why we will still witness the legendary Phenom one more time at the grandest stage of them all:
#1 His speech doesn't really indicate retirement
The Undertaker made his trademark grand entrance in the Manhattan Center arena. In his speech, he ran down the list of some legends like Stone Cold, Mankind and 'his own flesh and blood' Kane, who had to bow down to the Reaper. Finally, he ended by saying, "I declare, for all of those who have fallen, it is truly time, to rest in peace".
However, despite the widespread public opinion that this statement possibly indicates to his retirement, it may not be true. In fact, as per Jim Ross, who was the commentator, it might have been a warning to his possible competitors.
Generally, the job of a Commentator is to embellish the on-screen action with their words, creating excitement and building up hype at the same time. But, if this segment was a farewell to the Undertaker, then surely the Commentators have done exactly the opposite.
