The last ride providing a glance at the Undertaker’s struggles of letting go. A man who lived and breathed wrestling, was trying so hard to come to grips with life beyond the only thing he knew. By the end however, he accepted that his time was up and seemed content about it.

During an appearance on the My Mom’s Basement podcast, however, The Undertaker alluded to the possibility of a return.

“It was in my thought process,” The Undertaker said. “I have a whole group of people who are like, ‘You can go out and do this, people will go crazy.’ On the inside, I’m thinking, ‘I don’t move the way I used to move, it’s a watered down version.’

“I also love this business so much and love performing. It’s almost like I needed somebody to put the bullet in there and stop. Once we started rolling with this, it was in the back of my mind, ‘I can get to a point where this will solidify it and I won’t have a choice.’

“Originally, that’s where I was at until I had to send the last 15 minutes to the chairman [Vince McMahon]. He didn’t like the ending at all. That’s where we put the line back in there, ‘Never say never.’ I’m coming to grips with it. Obviously, as we get close to [WrestleMania], I’ll have that internal feeling like I should be getting ready for something.”
