The Undertaker Says He Has “Surgeries Lined Up,” Talks About the Idea of Another Match

The Undertaker said that he has multiple “surgeries lined up” during a recent interview with Dallas sports radio show Norm and D Invasion.

“Both my hips are partial hip replacements already. I need a right knee. I have surgeries lined up, but I have to wait until hunting season is over,” he said.

The Undertaker was also interviewed by the Dallas Morning News this week and was asked if “the wrestling bug” ever bites him despite his retirement last year.

He said:

“Yeah, of course it does. I think it’s always in my head and in my heart, especially getting ready for WrestleMania here at AT&T Stadium it’s just like … man. But it’s just at a point where physically, I can’t perform at a level. I mean, I could go out and walk through something and I could get through a match. But I can’t give people what they expect at this point. When you see Undertaker, you pay money to see that guy wrestle. I can’t deliver physically on what people’s expectations are. … The passion is obviously still there. I think that will always be there. It’s just the physical side of it. … My time has come, my time has gone. This is the WWE and things happen, you never know. But I know that my time has passed and it’s time for these young guys to step up and take over and lead us to where we’re going.”

The Undertaker retired during last year’s Survivor Series. His last match was the cinematic “Boneyard Match” against AJ Styles at WrestleMania 36 last year, and his last in-ring match was in Saudi Arabia in February 2020, when he won the “Tuwaiq Trophy Gauntlet” match.
