Many feel that Undertaker should retire after Wrestlemania 33. That appears to be the growing sentiment from WWE fans after Monday Night Raw.
Undertaker should retire
WWE fans can be pretty vocal when it comes to retirement. Many feel that they know when performers should walk away from the ring. A lot of them base their opinions on the eyeball test. If they see someone struggling, then they assume that the person is no longer in condition to be in the ring. A growing number of fans are now thinking that Undertaker should call it a career in a few weeks.
After all these years, Undertaker is no stranger to hearing talks about retirement. Some have been calling for it to happen years ago. The former world heavyweight champion is no longer the physical specimen that he used to be. WWE fans feel that he is struggling to maintain his level of greatness in the ring. In fairness to Undertaker, he did set the bar pretty high. He is routinely among the best performers at Wrestlemania events. However, it is going to be difficult for him to keep doing that. It is hard for anyone to do that at the age of 51.
Undertaker fan support
There is no question that Undertaker is a legend. WWE will induct him into the hall of fame some day. That is almost a given. His popularity is among the highest that the industry has ever seen. Undertaker is always going to have a good amount of fans that will want to see him perform year after year. However, that number has been dwindling over the years. Some have changed their tones. A lot of them are concerned about health. Others simply do not want to see their hero being a shell of his former self.
Undertaker retirement tour
WWE loves to promote things. That is how they became a billion dollar company in the first place. Many consider Vince McMahon to be one of the greatest promoters ever. He even receives that praise from those outside the world of professional wrestling. A retirement tour for Undertaker could do wonders for numbers. However, the man known as Mark Calaway might not be interested in that idea. He still likes his privacy. He also does not need the constant fanfare. It might take some convincing from World Wrestling Entertainment to get him to do that after Wrestlemania 33.
Undertaker quietly retiring
A more likely scenario for Undertaker is to put over Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania 33. Putting over a top level guy seems like something he would have no qualms doing. He might make an appearance on the following episode of Monday Night Raw. He bids farewell to his longtime fans. Then, Undertaker rides away into the sunset. That, or Undertaker simply does not make a decision in a couple of weeks. Playing it by ear is something that he has a history of doing. WWE respects him enough to allow him that luxury. An official retirement might never happen.
Undertaker knows best
At the end of the day, Undertaker knows best. Fans will keep voicing their opinions on what he should do with his career. It is highly unlikely that those opinions are going to sway Undertaker much. He knows his body better than fans do. He takes great care of himself. It helps that his wife, Michelle McCool, is essentially his full time personal trainer. Undertaker also has the ears of Vince McMahon. He can call him up just about anytime that he wants to. The two of them will ultimate decide on when the retirement will take place.
