The Undertaker explains why doing more cinematic matches doesn’t appeal to him

The Undertaker did an interview with The New York Post to promote his “Final Farewell” at next Sunday’s Survivor Series pay-per-view event.

During the chat, Taker discussed his retirement from pro wrestling as his last match came at WrestleMania 36 where he beat AJ Styles in a Boneyard Match, which was presented cinematically.

Taker noted that while he’s still working out, he’s not doing wrestling training. However, his wife, Michelle McCool, still thinks he’s not really retired.

“She busts my chops quite a bit,” said Undertaker, who added he’s feeling pretty good physically. “Anytime I say the actual words, ‘Yeah, I’m retired.’ I just get a huge eye roll. I think she still thinks I’m gonna work this year.”

“I realized I have taken every physical gift, tool that I have and have used it up,” said Undertaker, who began wrestling professionally in 1987. “There’s no water left in the sponge, if I can use that analogy. I’ve rung everything I could get out of that sponge.”

Due to the praise from fans towards Taker and Styles, many people think that working cinematic type matches could extend Taker’s in-ring career instead of working normal matches. The Undertaker seems against this and opened up as to why.

“It really doesn’t appeal to me because basically what it is, is working around my limitations,” he said. “It’s capitalizing on some of my ability and some of my creative ability to tell a story but basically it’s trying to mask some of the lack of my physical abilities at this point.”

Taker also talked about Bray Wyatt, Vince McMahon, Survivor Series, and more. Check out the full interview here.
