The Undertaker has reflected on retiring in the ThunderDome.
At WWE Survivor Series 2020, The Undertaker had his retirement ceremony with multiple legends and Hall of Famers coming out to celebrate his legendary career, and ended with a hologram version of Paul Bearer. This was during the pandemic era when WWE events took place inside the ThunderDome.
In a new interview for Insight with Chris Van Vliet, Taker discussed his retirement in the ThunderDome. When asked if there is a part of The Undertaker that wished he had his retirement in front of a sold-out arena, he answered:
“It’s funny. Yeah, I can, you know, I can see where you’re coming with that, but I, I didn’t [want to]. Even though I knew I was done, and it was over, like I didn’t want to, I didn’t want to cry, I didn’t want to break down, you know, I was like I was still trying to protect that character.”
“And I was like man if I, if I’m out here in front of a live audience, like, I mean you saw how hard of a time I had at that at the Hall of Fame, and I you know, that’s another year or two later, I would have been a wreck man. Because I didn’t, I didn’t want to retire.”
“In my mind, in my heart, there’s nothing more that I want to do than get in the ring and perform. You know, it was my body that just said no, you’re done dude, we got everything out of this we can get, and it’s time for you to move aside and let these guys come up.”
“So I would have been a wreck if there had been people there and, you know, all that all that kayfabing I did and protecting, the character would have been destroyed in one, in one promo, I would have been balling.”
